Shawna Gibson

Crossfit L1 | NASM | IAAI

Coach Shawna "Sho" Gibson is an Ironman triathlete who has over two decades of professional experience training endurance athletes. Sho's primary responsibilities are Boot Camp and Endurance classes.

Let me put this challenge to you. I have been blessed to have had the ability to complete several grueling events including the 2006 Ironman Wisconsin. This race had at least 2,200 of the most gifted, talented, and truly amazing athletes. Some had bodies sculpted to perfection. Others were just your average, everyday person. Some athletes were faster than I was (most of them, actually), and some who were slower. The key is, they all dared to try - and that made them all winners. "The only ones who fail are those who do not try."

Talon Smith The Brick Gym Trainer
Crossfit L3

Talon Smith

CrossFit Level 1 | USA Weightlifting Level 1

I was first introduced to CrossFit in military training. I absolutely hated it and continued with my routine work-out consisting of lots of cardio, some crunches, bench press, machines, and the “Globo Gym” usual curls in the mirror. I didn’t discover a passion for CrossFit until 2010 when I realized I wasn’t seeing any real results and personally felt my job performance was lacking. I decided to start doing CrossFit and used main page workouts mixed with CrossFit Endurance workouts and a month later was seeing results not only in my physique but in my performance. My runs were getting faster, the heavy rucks seemed lighter, and taking on the “Stairway to Heaven” became quite easy.

Jennifer Daniel

Mobile Trainer

I’ve been active most of my life. I have a love and passion for getting people up and active as well. I want others to see what I see in them. I love seeing their confidence build as we build their strength and increase their health.

It’s the most amazing feeling in the world to see people gain confidence in their ability, in themselves, and what they are capable of.

I am a mom to three amazing children who play everything from baseball, wrestling, jiujitsu, and violin. I’m grateful for this life I get to live and grateful to meet you where you are and take you where you want to be.


Lindsey The Brick Gym Nutritionist
Mindful Path Nutrition

Lindsay Abstein

Certified Nutritionist

My passion for nutrition grew when my daughter was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, at 6 years old. I was inspired to become a certified nutritionist so that I could learn everything I possibly could about how food works with our body's function and performance. I love helping individuals and families learn how to make healthy lifestyle changes through nutrient-dense food choices.
