Browny is ready to help take YOU to the next level

We are very excited to announce the addtion of Michael Brownfield to our CFSF Coaching staff. Browny has been CrossFitting with us since early August of last year. And his CrossFit resume is already quite impressive:

-He was a member of our CFSF FTS Affiliate Team last month in Denver
-He is a member of CFSF PaleoHolics
-He is certified with his CrossFit Level 1
-He is certified with his CrossFit Olympic Weightlifting (June 20, 2010)
-He is a student of CrossFit and is always finding ways to improve himself and is one of the first to lend a helping hand with anyone that wants to take their fitness and CrossFit to the next level.

Here is Browny’s story:

Athletics have always been a large part of my life. Growing up in an active family provided the ability to participate in many different activities. Anything that involved training and spending time in the gym grabbed my attention. During high school I knew that I wanted to further my days of playing football and that led me to the decision to play at the collegiate level.

After my playing career ended I was able to be on staff at my alma mater and coached alongside some of the most gifted people in terms of driving individuals to perform at an extremely high level. The coaching staff had an amazing ability to inspire their players to achieve goals outside of their scope of vision. The competitive nature of the sport and the mental training that accompanied it stayed with me well after my final game was played and coached.

After many years of the traditional gym experience I stumbled across this amazing thing called CrossFit. It sparked the competitive feeling that I knew was still there and offered an outlet to challenge myself physically and mentally. CrossFit has allowed me to achieve things that I thought were impossible and introduced a new sport that I want to play for the rest of my life.

My main goal is to lead by example and introduce as many people to CrossFit as possible because I believe in what it can do for an individual. We all can knock down obstacles and reach higher. If there is anything I can do to help just ask!
