Coach Winchester found CrossFit in 2008 during his search for “the next thing” on his fitness journey. After his first CrossFit workout (Fran) he knew he was in it for the long haul. He got his CF-Level 1 in September of 2008, and has spent the last nine years learning, teaching, but most importantly sharing his knowledge and craft with those that care to learn.
