Bethany Hatfield

– CrossFit Level 1 Trainer
– CrossFit Weightlifting
– CrossFit Advanced Weightlifting
– CrossFit Gymnastics
– CrossFit Kids
– CrossFit Programming

Bethany heard about CrossFit for the first time in 2013, from a friend who was attending CrossFit Advantage. “I listened to her gush over CFA, the coaches, the community, the movements, and how it made her feel. She seemed empowered by it and asked me to try it with her.” Bethany took her at her word and accepted when she was invited to join her for a class.

When first walking through the door, Bethany remembers seeing a group of very fit, athletic individuals grinding though the workout of the day. There were barbells flying overhead, loud music blaring and even louder cheers shouted. She recalls “It seemed tough, but you could tell each person was enjoying the struggle.” Shortly after viewing the class for a moment, Bethany was greeted by a friendly redhead, Matt Bendix (see coaches bio). He asked her name, if it was her first-time trying CrossFit, and assured her that she would have a blast. “The greeting made the somewhat intimidating environment seem less scary” she said. Seeing the combination of hard work, positivity and friendship, Bethany was immediately attracted to the sport and the atmosphere. Once she got started, she was hooked to that feeling of accomplishment from pushing her body past what she thought it was capable of.

“Since my first day, I’ve learned, and continue to learn so much about myself, others, health, and what it truly means to be fit”. “Whether you are a beginner or an elite athlete, there is always something to work on, something to learn and something to improve”. Now, as a coach herself, Bethany’s goal is to facilitate that same growth, and she can’t wait to help you discover what you are really capable of.

– Spot the Flaw Certificate
– CrossFit Programming

Life in fitness started on the soccer field as a kid, it moved into baseball and football as I got older. All sports have been a lot of fun for me in some way but baseball was always my favorite. After about a 10 year break from doing anything athletic and about 70 pounds in weight gain I decided it was time to start moving again. As of today I’ve lost that 70 pounds and feel more and more fit each day. CrossFit has been an essential part of that.

As most of us know that go to CFA, we always start the day with a question of the day. One day the question came up, what would your dream job be? The first thing that came to mind was being a coach. So around March of 2019 Cody Looney reached out to me about making this dream a reality. Today I am thrilled to be a coach at CFA and love working with our members and team. It is the best thing in the world to be able to help people become the best versions of themselves.

Coach

JAcob Howard

– USAW Level 1

Jacob grew up playing baseball. He loved the competition but always craved an outlet in an individual capacity. Jacob fell in love with fitness and strength training in school. He was introduced to the Olympic movements in middle school and high school. “They always stuck with me through the years. The globo-gym bodybuilding sessions that eventually brought me to CrossFit.” In 2012, Jacob took the plunge when a close friend started CrossFit and loved it. Since then, Jacob has continued to focus on Olympic style weightlifting and actively competes whenever possible.

Coach

Evelyn Bell

– CrossFit Level 1 Trainer
– CrossFit Weightlifting
– CrossFit Gymnastics

Evelyn comes mostly from a swimming background. She swam competitively on high school and club teams where she specialized in long distance races. She then tried her hand at water polo in college. She has tried to keep a connection with the water through triathlons, open water swim races, and scuba diving.
 
Evelyn first tried CrossFit when a friend invited her to CFA in 2014 and became enthralled by it immediately. She enjoyed the constantly varied movements and the judgement free zone that is characteristic of most CrossFit communities. She loves how this sport builds and develops not only healthy bodies but healthy minds and friendships as well. 
 
When she can, Evelyn enjoys traveling, attending music shows, puzzles, and eating tacos.
