ABOUT US

Established 2012
in Baton Rouge, LA

CrossFit BR began as a very small facility with a passion for fitness and helping others succeed. We have now grown into a 5000 square foot facility with plenty of floor space, rig space with squat racks, barbells, bumper plates, lifting platforms, medicine balls, dumbbells, kettlebells, plyometric boxes, etc.! A huge MacroAir fan keeps our open-air warehouse cool while our front lobby includes two shower rooms, two bathrooms, and an air-conditioned pro-shop.

Mainly the Hammond/Albany, LA area.
Running the biz and coaching at CrossFit BR is what I do!
Anything with higher level gymnastics such as bar muscle ups and handstand walking.
In 2010 a friend opened an affiliate and I was looking to get back into shape after college. Loved the feeling of it and here we are today.
Seeing and helping others reach their true potential and fitness goals is my passion. Anywhere from someone’s first push up, getting off of medications, to a new PR lift are all exciting to me.
I enjoy learning and researching so I’m usually listening to a podcast, a book, or reading articles when able. I also like to cook!

Born in Albany, Georgia but raised in Baton Rouge Louisiana!
I have a Bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology with a concentration in Pre-Physical Therapy.
My favorite workout is Manion (Squats and Running) and my favorite movement is the Snatch.
All time, favorite food hands down has to be CEREAL. More specifically, ANY CEREAL!!!
I started dabbling in CrossFit my senior year in high school in my brother’s garage. I played several different sports and was looking for something to improve my fitness in them all.
I coach because I enjoy helping people to help themselves. My goal is to give you the tools to be the best you can be in sports, CrossFit or even life! I want to help you succeed at whatever it is you want to learn or do!
Fun Fact: In my spare time, I play video games and nerd out on history books!!

I am a Medical Aesthetician at The Dermatology Clinic. So whether I am coaching or treating skin my goal is to help people achieve their goals and ultimately live a happy and healthy life.
I absolutely love wall balls & hang cleans.
I will never turn down sushi or Mexican
I started religiously going in the fall of 2015. My husband had just started coaching at CrossFit BR & we got invited to Dwayne and Amanda’s wedding. After meeting everyone from the gym there and clicking with them right away I left the wedding and I think the next week signed up for class. It’s always been about the community for me. There’s nothing else like it.
I love making people feel good. My goal is to motivate and encourage. I love helping someone achieve a goal and seeing people push themselves. It’s so awesome to see what people are capable of achieving.
I am a big fan of all things Disney!

I study Kinesiology at LSU. I’m going into my third year, and the goal is to eventually attend a PT school!
It goes back and forth between the clean and jerk and the snatch depending on which one I’m making progress with.
A good burger hands down.
I think coaches are essential to any athlete’s or individual’s ability to move well. A good coach has always been make or break for me, and I want to be that for others. I want to help people move well within the gym so they can move well outside the gym.

Born and raised in Shreveport, LA.
I am a full-time mechanical engineering student at LSU. I plan to graduate in the spring of 2021. I also enjoy spending my time in the outdoors hunting and fishing.
My favorite workout is Cindy (Pullups, Pushups, and Squats) and my favorite movement has to be a heavy snatch.
This is a hard question because I love food! I will never turn down a sushi invite and if I am looking for something more simple then my go to is chicken and sweet potatoes.
I was first introduced to CrossFit in high school. Once I got into college I wasn’t able to continue due to football. When I transferred to LSU from UL I was looking to do something that would compliment my competitive drive, joining CrossFit BR did just that. I enjoy competing with myself everyday, working to become better than I was the day before.
I coach because I enjoy helping people become the best version of themselves. My goal is to guide and help you become the best you can be in the gym, with sports, or your quality of life outside the gym!
I played collegiate football at the University of Louisiana for a year and I also love to cook.
