CrossFit THRONE

At CrossFit Throne, EVERYONE has athletic capacity; no matter their current ability, all persons can improve above their current physical limitations. CrossFit Throne opened it’s doors in 2012 to provide CrossFit’s world class strength and conditioning methodology. Since then, we have improved the health and fitness of ALL age groups and ALL body types. We are committed to helping YOU remove any chains that hold you back through our CrossFit’s proven and direct coaching in nutrition, correct movement, relative intensity, strength, power, and mobility.

FAMILY OWNED

From the very beginning, improved health and fitness have remained secondary to the overall well-being of our families and relationships. CrossFit Throne primarily provides value to your life and livelihood OUTSIDE of the gym. We have an amazing group of people here: we help each other in and out of the gym; we do not have any cliques; we don’t allow egos to impede training; and it is a SAFE place for you and your family with commiserate background checks on our staff. We have a kids room where your children can hang-out and watch a DVD or play with their tablet or toys while you get a sweat on.

Coach Jon Harwood (CF Level 2 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 Meagan Leibbrandt
 (CF Level 1 Trainer)

As she continues to sharpen her coaching skills, her and her husband also train regularly at CrossFit Throne. She has a heart to help our athletes and continues to help them overcome many obstacles in their pursuit of fitness – particularly with regards to CrossFit Throne’s nutrition recommendations.
Coach Veronica Soliz (CF Level 1 Trainer)
Coach Veronica became a CrossFit Level 1 Trainer at the end of 2014; she continues to sharpen her coaching skills, and if she gets any stronger, we will need to add her name to the men’s leaderboard at CrossFit Throne.  Veronica has two daughters, works hard to provide for her family, and uses her determination to help encourage everyone around her.  We are lucky to have her on staff!

Coach Darryl Bokman (CF Level 1 Trainer, CF Endurance)

Darryl was introduced to CrossFit while in the military and has used it with great effect to maintain a high level of fitness over multiple deployments and day to day life.  He is a CrossFit Level 1 Trainer; additionally, he has earned his certification in CrossFit Endurance. “My goal is to help people achieve their goals [safely] and provide them the tools to carry out those goals, whether or not I am present.”

Matraca “Mattie” Penner (CF Level 1 Trainer, Adaptive Athlete Trainer)

Coach Mattie was born with Holt Oram Syndrome, which presents her with challenges to her arms and a hole in her heart, but it hasn’t been enough to hold her back. She recently competed in the Working Wounded Games and continues to find new ways to help all of our athletes adapt and overcome their limitations.

Coach Scott Janssen – when he’s in town (CF Level 1 Trainer, CF Gymnastics)

Scott completed his undergrad at Texas Tech University.  He is committed to growing as a coach and seeing his athletes improve in their form and functional strength.  Scott has a CrossFit Level 1 Trainer and he has also earned his CrossFit Gymnastics certification.
