What are the benefits of joining a community-based fitness gym?

First and foremost, CrossFit Magnolia offers the best value for your money, compared to any other type of gym. The primary reason is that we are locally owned and operated, and the goal of the members of our community-based gym is to provide help, support, and encouragement for each other. You’ll find the environment more welcoming and less intimidating.

Further, you’re getting your workouts programmed and lead by a certified coach and expert on a daily basis. Rather than walking into this gym without a plan, we’ve already written one for you and will lead you through it with the group each day!

At the end of each workout, you’ll receive a unique report card that tracks your progress. We also take snapshots of your workout every day and store them in our system. This is nice because it allows you to compare your progression from week to week so that you know when you’re making gains, and when your body may require some recovery.

A community-based group fitness gym is also better for your health than being at home physically inactive. There are many studies that have shown that individuals who exercise with others and share their thoughts are less lonely and suffer from depression less which has a direct link to physical health.

When it comes to making your lifestyle shift, you’re going to be in a group of people that are on the exact same page as you. You’ll get accountability from other members are also Magnolia locals (who also want and need to make progress!). It’s a fun, social atmosphere where everyone is striving for the same goals!

Finally, another benefit of joining a local community-based group fitness gym is that it will help you stay in shape for anything since you’re getting a variety of new workouts regularly and constantly bettering yourself!

Through our experience of working with thousands of Magnolia locals at CrossFit Magnolia over many years now, there are some other benefits too! You’ll find yourself going to the gym more often, you’ll feel better about yourself and your confidence will grow. This all typically leads to weight loss or a healthier lifestyle overall!

Feel free to contact us anytime with questions on how we can help you make a lifestyle shift! I hope this article was helpful in encouraging you to get involved with our group fitness classes.

Bio coming soon…



I’m from Oklahoma and have been coaching CrossFit for 5 years. I am married to my best friend Josh since August 4, 2001 and we have two beautiful children, Madilyn & Hagen. I absolutely love coaching to help people become a healthier and stronger version of themselves.  My all time favorite saying is “You Do You”. What I take from that saying is we are all in the gym for ourselves and only for ourselves!



I studied Biology at BIOLA University in Southern California and was very active running cross country and track and field. After earning my Bachelor’s degree from BIOLA, I began working in the Biotech industry prior to starting my family.  Working out and intentionally exercising were almost non-existent as I became busy raising five kids.I started my CrossFit journey in 2018. I had heard of CrossFit, but didn’t really know what it was all about. So, I did what anyone would do: convinced one of my best friends to go with me! We have 11 kids between us and hadn’t been able to work out in quite some time. We commiserated to each other as we realized that neither of us could do a sit-up anymore! But nevertheless, I was hooked and loved the community, encouragement, and challenge that each day brought.We moved from Los Angeles to Magnolia in 2019 and I knew I had to find a CrossFit box right away. The community at CrossFit Magnolia made me feel welcomed and part of the family right away.I earned my CrossFit Level 1 certification in 2020 and am loving the challenge of coaching and encouraging others in their fitness journey.



I have always been an active person… athletic even, but I never imagined myself doing something like CrossFit. I was happy wandering around the machine room in a gym trying out different machines… never feeling like I got a really good workout, but satisfied that I was doing “something”. When my husband became a coach at CrossFit Magnolia and then later bought the gym, all my excuses were eliminated. I slowly started going to CrossFit classes with more frequency. I’m no coach, but I work behind the scenes to help keep the gym “driving and thriving”. At CrossFit Magnolia I’ve gotten the best workouts of my life, accomplished physical gains I’d never thought possible, made great friends and and been blessed to watch my husband do something he is passionate about. 



It’s interesting to look back and see the path that brings you to certain points in your life. When I got my MBA, I was catapulted into corporate America where I worked for about ten years. When I had the opportunity to coach at and then own CrossFit Magnolia, I was grateful and excited for the opportunity to work in an industry that was my passion helping people with their goals and being part of a gym community that supports and lifts its members in and out of the gym.

I have been a fitness enthusiast all of my life. I competed in many sports such as gymnastics, swimming and soccer and then as an adult tried all sorts of gyms and fitness programs. I love that CrossFit is challenging both physically and mentally… something I haven’t found in any other fitness endeavor. 

The Magnolia Crossfit community is really an extension of my own family, and family is something that is very important to me. My wife Jen and I have five kids and I especially love coaching the kids and young adults and I am grateful to witness how CrossFit empowers, inspires and motivated individuals.



My health journey started after my first year of college when I decided to prioritize my health and lose the freshman 30 (I’m an over achiever). I started eating better, exercising regularly, and I changed my major; health and fitness became my whole life. I graduated from Sam Houston State University with a B.S. in Kinesiology in 2017. I was peer pressured into signing up for a 6 week ladies weight-loss challenge and fell in love with CrossFit. I got my CrossFit level one certification in 2016 and most recently received my USA Weightlifting certification in 2018.
