Certification: CF-L1

Scott became passionate about CrossFit from the moment he started. He saw the value and positive change it brought to his life which reflected through the challenge, community, and atmosphere that CrossFit fosters. He believes in what Lefthand provides through its coaches and the people that come here on a daily basis. 

Scott, who's currently a software engineer, decided to pursue and complete his L1 certification after a few years of WODs so that he could learn the fundamentals of coaching. He now fills his time between working at home and coaching at the gym.

Megan started CrossFit a few years ago after her husband, Scott, had been at the gym for a few months. A busy mother of 3 children, Megan wanted to make time for herself and her fitness. As she became more involved in the community, she realized she loved it. A year and a half later, she now co-owns the gym with Scott while homeschooling 2 of her 3 kids. She still makes time for herself despite her busy schedule because she knows how important it is to her and her wellbeing. She challenges mothers out there to make time for themselves despite the hectic and sometimes chaotic schedule a family brings.

Joey joined Scott and Megan on their gym-owning journey about a month after they took over. As a recent graduate of business administration, he manages the facility as well as the marketing, website design, and social media channels. His favorite food is Megan's homemade nachos and he enjoys playing golf when there isn't snow on the ground. 

Joey immediately became addicted to the challenge and the benefit CrossFit brought to him after only a few months. For a more detailed anecdote of his experience prior to and after joining Lefthand, take a look at his blog post.

Tyler has always been involved in sports. He began CrossFit about seven years ago when his mom first told him about the fitness phenomenon. At the time, he was transitioning into his first year of college at the University of Colorado and trying to train for athletics at the collegiate level. His goal was to walk on to the football team but ended up pursuing rugby. He found that CrossFit was the mechanism that allowed him to reach the strength and fitness demands of his new sport.

While in college, he continued using CrossFit to give himself a competitive edge in rugby without detracting from his studies in Integrative Physiology and Business Management. He has taken courses in nutrition, health and performance, biomechanics, exercise physiology and motor learning. Fitness has always been his passion and he is always trying to share this zeal for health, life, and wellness with everyone.

Tell’s athletic background is steeped in military service. He spent four years in the Marine Corps Infantry and was part of a Scout Sniper Platoon, where he served as team leader on two deployments. During that time, he saw how well some of his peers were handling their stressful positions and wanted to know their secret. They introduced him to CrossFit and after doing the workouts, he immediately felt a difference.

CrossFit training strengthened both his mind and body. It was a winning combination that would motivate him to become a coach. These days, he specializes in gymnastics and believes CrossFit can benefit anyone, no matter their background.

Maggie Ault specializes in youth strength and conditioning development. “I find joy in helping others reach their goals and to be able to teach someone something new," she says. “It’s rewarding when you see a member come in consistently, even on their bad days, and see them put work in during the WOD.”

Maggie has played soccer all her life, including four years at Kansas Wesleyan University. “Soccer to CrossFit was a good transition for me. When I came to CrossFit Lefthand, I realized I could coach sports athletes and CrossFit athletes. I’m honored to say I get to do what I love - coach!”
