I started CrossFit 904 in mid-2011 with the goal of helping people of all ability levels reach their fullest fitness potential. I have been amazed at the changes I have seen people make. Although anyone can do CrossFit, CrossFit is not for everyone. You must be willing to push yourself, physically and mentally, unlike you have probably ever done before.

I have had the pleasure of helping many people lose significant weight, recover from injuries, and become better athletes. I am obsessed with human movement and mobility which has allowed me to help members improve their everyday quality of life by working through what they previously saw as limitations. Bad backs, bad knees, and bad shoulders are a common theme. My goal is to help you fix these problems while getting in the best shape of your life.

If you are ready to make a change, or reach that next level, then let’s talk. For those competitive CrossFitters out there, I am also obsessed with technique and efficiency. I’ve recently been given the nickname Form Whisperer because of my ability to quickly breakdown and correct all movements. Whether it’s difficult gymnastics movements or heavier Olympic lifting PRs, I want to help you reach virtuosity in all areas of CrossFit. Check out this video analysis of a recent Snatch PR. This service is also available for you to take back to your home gym, e-mail josh@crossfit904.com for details.

ANDREA CREASY | COACH

READ MORE ABOUT ANDREA

Andrea Bio PicI discovered CrossFit in 2012 while living in Hawaii. Being in the Marine Corps, I had been physically active for many years but never officially tried CrossFit.  I loved distance running and didn’t think you could get a good work out in 8 minutes verses running for an hour.  Boy was I wrong!  After my first CrossFit class I was hooked. 

I love CrossFit’s competitive and supportive environment. CrossFit isn’t necessarily about becoming the athlete who can lift the most weight or go the fastest. To me it’s all about challenging yourself and learning that you can do things you never thought you were capable of. The physical and mental challenge that awaits you each day is what keeps me motivated and coming back for more. It also helps to be surrounded by like-minded individuals who push you, challenge you, and lift you up when you need it most.

I am incredibly grateful to be able teach others and share something I am passionate about. From the elite athlete to the person just beginning, watching someone hang on to finish just one more rep or add 5 pounds to a PR is something that truly inspires me as both an athlete and a coach.

LUCAS HERDLISKA | COACH

READ MORE ABOUT LUCAS

I’ve always had a passion for fitness and health. It all started in high school.  I had off season workouts for football and baseball and realized I loved training for my sports more than actually playing the games. I remember waking up at 5am many mornings to get in a workout before school started. After a short college football career, due to injury, I joined a globo gym because that’s all I knew. I just wanted to lift weights and get big! After about a year and a half of learning everything I could about bodybuilding style training and nutrition, I got bored. I wanted to get back into training for something more meaningful.

I first discovered CrossFit in 2015. I was surfing through YouTube and came across videos of Rich Froning and Mat Fraser competing against each other in workouts. I thought to myself, “Wow! Working out is a sport now? I’d love to do that!” So in May of 2015, I decided to give CrossFit a try. My first workout was with CF 904’s owner Josh and I’ve been hooked ever since.

After about a year, I talked to Josh about becoming a coach because I was obsessed with CrossFit and I wanted to share my knowledge with our awesome members.

What makes CrossFit so special is the community. When I was working out at a globo gym, I never talked to anyone and only focused on getting in and out of there. Here at CrossFit904, everyone is so friendly and genuinely cares about how your day is going. You get more than just a great workout, you get lifelong relationships.

I come in each day trying to create the best version of myself and part of that is becoming a better coach. I want to ensure each member has a great workout and spends their best hour of the day at CF904.

KATIE DINGLER | COACH

READ MORE ABOUT KATIE

Katie Dingler (2)When I was first introduced to CrossFit by my husband I didn’t understand it.  At the time, I was highly vested in endurance sports, mainly marathons and triathlons.  I didn’t think that a 5, 10, or even 20 minute “met-con” would ever suffice for me.  It wasn’t until I left my job as a personal trainer and started a teaching career that I thought I should give CrossFit a try.  I had always supplemented my endurance training with weight training and yoga but I found that I didn’t have enough time in the day to get in all my workouts.   So in 2011 I started CrossFit and over the last four years I have completely changed my training mentality, my energy levels and my nutrition.

As a coach, I hope to motivate and encourage all levels of athletes but I specifically love working with newcomers to the sport.  I enjoy teaching new skills, movements, and exercises and watching the athletes put in the hard work and reap the rewards on a daily basis.  Helping an athlete hit a PR or push through 5 more reps before time is called and then watching them walk away with their head held high is inspiring to me not only as a coach but also as an athlete myself.

I found CrossFit in the fall of 2014.  I had enjoyed watching the CrossFit games for a couple years previously but had the mentality that it was something fun to watch, but surely something out of my reach.  I was a distance runner and in my opinion in great shape.

In 2014 after a move I found myself lonely and missing a sense of community and belonging.  After driving past a CrossFit on my way to the store I decided on a whim to try it out.  I wish I could tell you that I crushed my first workout…or even remembered what it was.  All I remember was I came to the abrupt revelation that I was not in as great of shape as I had thought.  The other and probably most prominent thing I remember about the first day were the people, women specifically, that I was surrounded by.  All shapes, sizes, abilities, and ages.  The one thing all these women shared was their strength.  I was so impressed and I had to have what they had!

Since then I’ve moved several more times but in every new place I’ve had a built-in CrossFit family.  As a coach that is one of the areas I am most passionate about.  To me CrossFit is about pushing myself daily to be the best version of myself possible.  CrossFit isn’t something I’m planning to do just in my 20’s but something I plan on doing for the rest of my life.

KATY YOUNG | COACH

KY PicI first discovered CrossFit in 2011. Two of my close girlfriends had told me about this new exercise phenomenon called ‘CrossFit’. At first I thought I would do it for a short time, to get in better shape, perhaps get a bit stronger and more muscle tone. After the first week, I was hooked! I loved the community feel to the classes and the friends I had made. I loved the fact the workout was different everyday; the variety keeps it interesting to me. And I really loved how some of the workouts were so short! Since I enjoyed it so much, I talked my husband into giving it a try. He loved it too. And our kids see us doing CrossFit, and they love it to!
