Being more open & sharing

One thing we know as coaches is that those who open up and share their goals, concerns, fears, desires and needs become better, more complete healthy versions of themselves. There’s something uplifting and therapeutic about sharing with another person. In our case, coaches can really help be the X-factor in our lives as do battle with the world every day.

CottonTown Crossfit Visit

We took a quick visit to CottonTown Crossfit, where we’ve done MURPH and a Grid6 competition this year. To talk with our friends owner Mark Sanger and Coach Michel Brazell. We wanted to share some insight into how they operate their gym and how their community works.

We have a lot of similarity with CottonTown and we hope you glean some useful info as to how we all work in the Coaching community.

Coach Rebecca “Becky” Johnson

Coach Becky’s journey began as an original Workhorse member. Actually before that at Iron Tribe when Coach Ib was just starting out in South Carolina. So she’s what we call “OW”… 🙂

Always with a good spirit and a love for helping others Coach Becky has become a great addition to the team here at Workhorse in terms of Coaching staff.

Listen to her story as she goes into the detail of working through her back surgery to be better than before. Taking it slow and progressing one day at a time with a super consistent work ethic. Coach Becky is one to model your own fitness journey after for sure.
