Meet our Trainers


Giancarlo Montufar

I started doing CrossFit in 2013 and it has had a tremendous impact on my life. The box quickly became my home away from home, my outlet or even “safe place”. My goal is to be able to offer the same to our members. Getting outside of my comfort zone and pushing my limits is something that I now welcome and it has yielded great results both inside and outside of the gym. It will be an honor to be able to share this with you.


Tygh Brogdon

Why did you start CrossFit?

“This one is easy. I was sitting in a restaurant cramming food in my face and BG looked at me and said, "you eat like $hit". He told me that as a triathlete that he could make me faster and stronger with less hours away from my family. I said impossible, he said "try it, it will be your jam"! I went to his class and was crushed! He continued to work with me as he still does to this day, and I thank him. I'm healthier and fitter today than I was yesterday as well as healthier than I was that June day in 2011.”

Terri began doing CrossFit in 2006 when she was in training at fletc. Prior to attending fletc, Terri was a self proclaimed gym rat who swam competitively in high school and has trained for and completed both half marathons and triathlons.
