Shawn is co-owner and founder of CrossFit Reflexion.
A multi-sport high school and collegiate athlete (he played football for Southern Oregon University), Shawn developed his passion for coaching / nutrition and wellness as he experienced the benefits of CrossFit and sound nutrition personally, and for his family and friends. "People don't believe me when I tell them I was a chunky kid, but it's true. I vowed I would learn everything I could to become fit and healthy, a journey that continues today."
Shawn is a firm believer in structured programming centered around strength and power scaled to the abilities and conditioning of the individual.
"Too many people who get into CrossFit look at how the world's best are working out and try to copy it. That's crazy. They just get crushed or injured, worn out, and weaker."
"If you haven't PR'd a lift or WOD in a few months something is wrong. As a coach, I can control the programming, but the athlete has to work with me on the nutrition and rest. Like a three legged stool, each component is critical for progress."
"At CRX, we pride ourselves in intelligent programming, proper nutrition (this doesn't mean we're selling you stuff - we believe in whole foods) and rest."
"I'm so proud of our athletes, they've made huge gains, and continue to make them. My job as coach and programmer is to monitor our athletes and make sure they're making gains and seeing results. This is literally life changing for many people. I'm so thankful for being able to share my passion for wellness and see the differences we're making in peoples lives."
