Lacey Nordstrand

Later she was fortunate enough to compete in volleyball at the collegiate level until she decided to pursue a career in nursing. She found Crossfit about five years ago and has fallen in love with how it makes her feel and the community. She started coaching HIIT within this last year. She loves showing her two young boys how beneficial it is to be active and take care of our bodies. She also wants to encourage anyone and everyone that you are never too old or too young, too out of shape or too physically fit to benefit from getting out there and moving our bodies. 

Jordan Jenkins

WVCF KIDS Coach

Jordan grew up doing competitive cheerleading for most of her life. Once she started having kids she began running and going to a "regular" gym.  "I missed the community and the feel of working out with people. A friends gave me a gift certificate to start CrossFit in 2018 and I haven't looked back. I love the community feel, the opportunity to get a little bit better each day and the fact that my kids are welcome to be a part of my fitness."

Zach Hood

CF-L2 Trainer

I played sports since I became eligible as a young boy. Throughout my schooling I played, or at least tried, all of the sports. In high school my choice was Cross Country and the Swim teams. I had a lot of potential in swimming and probably could have went places with it! But instead I chose the fast and hard life of drugs and alcohol. Fast forward 8 years - In 2013 after many run-in’s with the law, I became clean. At that point, I got into doing yoga and P90X. CrossFit found me in 2016 and became a hedge against that old lifestyle and a keystone in my sobriety. I have met a community of healthy and supportive individuals that I know my family and I can count on. Health and wellness are my new drugs of choice.

Tim Reynolds

CF-L2  Trainer

Personal Trainer 

Tim is so passionate about CrossFit. "As a coach, my goal is to have your 1 hour class be the best hour of your day. I strive to tailor every workout to my specific athletes, making sure they can reach their desired goals. Above all, you can anticipate having a bomb workout with the plus of always having jammy music playing while you grind!"

Kelsey Palmer

Nancy Randall

Owner and CF-L2

CF L1 Weightlifting Certified

Nancy found CrossFit in 2013 and had no idea what she was getting into. It did not take long for her to fall in love with feeling healthy, consistently challenged and most of all, being surrounded by the culture and community that is so unique to CrossFit. This lead to her getting her L1 and pouring herself into learning as much as possible about the sport as well as nutrition that fuels. A couple years into it the business plan began to form. First as some fun casual conversion between competition partner, then into a "5 year plan" , then a 2 year and then well...here we are! 

Stephani Severns

As a college athlete at Western Oregon University I have been a part of team sports my entire life. When I graduated I began Crossfit almost 10  years ago. In the past few years I incorporated HIIT into my own personal workouts and fell in love.
