What kind of workouts did you do before you started CrossFit?

Before CrossFit I did the typical workout, lifting weights and some cardio (treadmill & stationary bike) for a few months at a time. Then I would take a break for a few months. I’d start feeling like a slug and get back to doing the same-old workout routine.

What was your first CrossFit experience like?

Nerve-wracking! It was my first time working out since I had back surgery. I had heard all the scare-stories about how dangerous CrossFit was, and I was worried about getting hurt.

How has CrossFit changed you in your personal life?

Personally, I feel I’m the fittest I’ve ever been. Most people feel like they’re fittest during their teen years, but I know back then I ate terribly and avoided squats like the plague! I might have been strong for a 160 lb high school kid, but overall I’m more fit now as a 220 lb adult. CrossFit has also helped me with my confidence. After experiencing a few setbacks in life, physically and emotionally, the lifestyle regimen CrossFit brings drives me to be my best.

What kind of music do you like to WOD to?

I like to workout to classic rock like, the Stones, Led Zeppelin, Sabbath, Ted Nugent….

What are your favorite movements or workout?

My favorite workout is Fran.

What movements or workout do you hate the most?

I really dislike burpees.

What made you decide to become a CrossFit Instructor?

I needed something else in my life. Something to work towards and work at. I enjoy doing CrossFit and I’ve always enjoyed helping others to become their best. It seemed like a good fit!

Audrey Kimbrell, Coach

Certification: CrossFit Level 1 Trainer

What kind of workouts did you do before you started CrossFit?

I mostly just ran.

What was your first CrossFit experience like?

I was working out with the strength trainer at my school for a few weeks doing whatever he told me to do. The workouts were killer but I was feeling stronger and stronger. Finally he told me that I had been doing crossfit. I Joined Caliber that week.

How has CrossFit changed you in your personal life?

I feel so much stronger and more fit than I ever have. My running has improved and I am much happier with the definition I see in my body.

What kind of music do you like to WOD to?

I love anything country any time haha but during a WOD I also like anything loud and upbeat. I don’t hear the music too long after the WOD starts though haha.

What are your favorite movements or workout?

I love any squat! Although I have much to improve on the squat, it’s still my favorite move.

What movements or workout do you hate the most?

I HATE rowing and thrusters. Make me row and then do thrusters and it’s going to be a very ugly WOD.

What made you decide to become a CrossFit Instructor?

I fell in love with Crossfit!! I get fired up every time I walk into the box and I feel a huge sense of accomplishment when I walk out. I wanted to get as involved as I could in Crossfit and learn as much as I could about the
philosophy and methodology. I left my certification class even more fired up about Crossfit and I look forward to continuing my Crossfit education and certifications!

Arnel Delosreyes, CEO and Head Coach

CrossFit Level 2 Trainer, and trained in CrossFit Olympic Lifting, CrossFit Kids, CrossFit Gymnastics, CrossFit Mobility and American Red Cross First Aid, CPR and AED.

What kind of workouts did you do before you started CrossFit?

Before I stumbled upon CrossFit I tried many different modes of developing fitness by going to the big box globo gyms, taking martial arts classes and even trying the popular workout DVD’s. For more than a decade I thought I achieved a respectable level of fitness. Boy was I wrong. Nothing prepared me for my first CrossFit workout.

What was your first CrossFit experience like?

It was in October of 2008 when I tried “Elizabeth” and it floored me. From this point on I was immediately hooked, and for a while afterward I relied solely on crossfit.com, my standard barbell, dumbbells and a door frame pull-up bar for my workouts. I must admit, however, that I went back to the globo gym a couple of times when it was raining or snowing hard to use their treadmill for running. But about six months later I cancelled my membership and soon I converted my garage into “my box”.

How has CrossFit changed you in your personal life?

Over the next few years, my fascination for CrossFit grew. I saw myself improving by leaps and bounds in my capacity for strength, power, endurance and in many other areas too many to mention here. Most importantly it has given me a renewed sense of well being and enhanced confidence that I had never had before.

What kind of music do you like to WOD to?

Rock, classic rock, hair metal, electronic, techno… anything with a good, hard, driving beat. And yes I must admit there are some pop songs out there…

What are your favorite movements or workout?

Movements: Pull-ups, Rope climbs, Clean & Jerk, Deadlift & Burpees, yes, Burpees.
Workout: “Murph”, Rx’d with a 20 lb vest baby!

What movements or workout do you hate the most?

Movements: Fricken Wall Ball Shots, no good for shorter people!
Workout: “Hope”

What made you decide to become a CrossFit Instructor?

CrossFit has made me realize what I can do and how far I can go, physically and mentally. But most importantly, it has revealed to me who I really am. I love doing and teaching CrossFit so much that I left my career as an attorney and opened up my own box. Come train with us and you will see what I’m talking about. You will find a rare group of dedicated men and women who are serious about refining their fitness and health. You’ll also see that we have great fun in doing it. We welcome anyone interested in doing the same. Like I tell everyone, “Come on over, get in and get awesome!”
