If I am real honest I still don’t have a clue of what I am doing with the darn bar, kettle bell, or jump rope. You know I always saw Crossfit as this untouchable thing that extraordinary people did for an actual paycheck. I would always tell myself, “One day I will do Crossfit.”

My name is Seth Davis, I’m 34 years old. My dad was in the Marines so I grew as a military brat and lived all over. So, I did lots of pushups growing up. I graduated from U of O with a Bachelor’s in Philosophy. Go Ducks!!!

Corey Bushmaker

Ever since I can remember being active has been a major part of my life. As a kid my brother and I would be on skate boards or bikes from sun up till the street lights came on. I found my competitiveness in youth sports through tee ball and soccer; and it continued as I became a two sport athlete in football and baseball. One commonality between the two sports was the weight room. I started lifting weights at 15 and I have been moving weights for the last 21 years.

Devin Wells

Hello, my name is Devin Wells and I am 25 years old. I was born and raised in Beaverton, OR and went to Southridge High School. I have two older sisters Deanna and Danielle and my parents Dan and Debbie. Sports and athletics have been apart of my life ever since I was born. My household always had something going on in every season of the year. If I wasn’t playing a game I was at my sisters events. In my house there was always competitions and rivalry between the children. My father played football at Oregon State University and so naturally he was all three of our coaches in whatever sport we were apart of. Both my sisters are athletic and played sports in college. I was fortunate enough to play football at Western Oregon University. Whatever sport I was apart of weight lifting and body movements were key components to achieving my goals. During my time of training for sports some exercises I would focus on were Olympic lifting exercises, plyometrics and sprint/running workouts. Growing up cross fit was not a very popular form of exercise. Over the years it has grown and proven to the exercise community that it is an effective form of working out.
