Coach Bios


CrossFit Throne fully believes that our athletes should have access to solid training and coaching.  Our coaches are continually researching EVERYTHING about CrossFit and fitness to constantly improve CrossFit Throne’s commitment to high quality training and coaching. Six (sometimes 7) coaches ensures that you ALWAYS have a trusted source you can turn to with your questions!

Coach Jon Harwood (CF L1 Trainer, CF KidsCF Gymnastics)

“I believe that EVERYONE is an athlete. God changed me in 2005: I stopped smoking, started training, and started paying attention to what I ate.  The subsequent physical, mental, and spiritual benefits are immeasurable. And now I want to pay the same gift forward. You don’t need to “get good with God” before you go to church; AND you don’t need to be fit before you take physical training seriously. Climb the mountain, dare to fail, and get back up, over and over again – you NEVER reach the top, and you find that the journey IS the result! ANYONE can do CrossFit – will YOU?”

 

Coach Lauri Lovvorn (CF Level 1 Trainer, CF Mobility, CF Advanced Weight Lifting, CF Goal Setting)

Coach Jake Cuellar (CF Level 1 Trainer)

“I have always had the desire to help people, and I have always felt a sense of pride in being a part of something greater than myself. Coaching covers both of these for me. I believe athletes expect the absolute best effort from their coach, just as I expect the absolute best effort from them. With us working together athletes continue to grow and become a faster, stronger, and healthier versions of themselves. I have made this journey from new CrossFit athlete to CrossFit Trainer and the work I’ve put in has been multiplied and returned not only in CrossFit, but also in other facets of my life. If you are willing to put in the effort you will be rewarded.”
