“I get a sense of accomplishment and get inspired by seeing people reach their goals. It is impossible to learn everything in one day, so what drives me to keep teaching is being able to do this little by little, knowing that my client has learned something every day.”
Tommy is a former collegiate baseball player who has experienced the positive impact of CrossFit first hand. He’s passionate about every individual at District H CrossFit, the community as a whole, and helping others grow and develop. Tommy has a degree in Philosophy and his favorite cheat meal is chips with salsa and queso.
I love “…seeing the improvements in my own life through CrossFit and how the dedication of a coach can change someone’s life and put them on a completely different trajectory.”
Karen started her CrossFit journey with District H CrossFit in 2012. Before CrossFit, she played softball, basketball, and soccer, and was a gymnast until she realized these sports didn’t suit her quite right. She is a full believer that you don’t need to have an athletic background for CrossFit, just as in her personal experience.
“I’m passionate about showing women how strong they can be, and how personally satisfying it can be for a woman to move heavy weight on a barbell.”

Hernan is a prime example of success when it comes to finding fitness with CrossFit. Like many, he didn’t have any athletic or CrossFit experience when he started his journey in 2008.

He’s most passionate about the community, loves seeing the impact of making small changes whether in lifestyle or movement technique really makes a big difference for so many.
“I believe the quality of coaching is far more important that the quantity of clients. Every client should get the coaching they need and deserve every time they come to the box.”
