Who We Are
We proudly opened our doors in February of 2012 excited to build a community of like-minded individuals who share a love for health and wellness. In the last 9 and a half years our experienced coaches and fun hard-working athletes have done just that!
We believe in being supportive, inclusive, and meeting our athletes where they are at. Not everyone has the same goals or is motivated by the same thing. We want to continue to grow our community and continue helping each athlete find their own success. Being strong on your own is great, but we think we are even stronger as a team. We are all here to motivate and support each other no matter what, everyone who walks through our doors will be welcome!
Meet the coaches
Alex is the owner and coach at MTCF. She didn’t come from sports, but found CrossFit 11 years ago and fell in love with its diversity and functionality, as well as its culture. She opened Mt. Tabor CrossFit 7 years ago to help inspire and guide those looking to pursue their fitness goals in a supportive and knowledgeable environment. Alex is CrossFit Certified: Levels 1 & 2, Gymnastics, Kids CrossFit, Mobility, and she’s a Catalyst Olympic Lifting attendee.
Head Coach Aminta
Aminta is a stay-at-home mom turned Certified CrossFit Trainer, passionate about guiding people to create healthy habits that empower the best version of themselves.
She began CrossFit in 2010 with some apprehension about being able to meet the CrossFit standard. In fact, she could barely do a push-up. What she found was the ability to do seemingly impossible things with encouragement and guidance from her coach, and support from her new community. Due to this life-changing experience, Aminta wanted to teach others.
Her passion has led to many avenues of education. She has completed courses in Mobility with Movement Fix, Anatomy with CrossFit, Nutrition with OptimizeMe Nutrition, Rehabilitation with Clinical Athlete, Olympic Lifting with Clinical Athlete, and has worked her way up to a Level 3 CrossFit Certification.
As MTCF’s Head Coach, Aminta will not only make you sweat, but help you achieve long term fitness and health habit goals.
Alyson is originally from Bakersfield CA and made the move to Portland almost 2 years ago. CrossFit has been part of Alyson’s life for 10 years! She is super stoked to part of the MTCF team as a L-1 trainer and looks forward to helping the awesome members of our community on their fitness journeys. When she is not at the gym she can be found out snapping pictures or enjoying nature.
Nate started his CrossFit journey in 2014 as an athlete, automatically falling in love with the sport and community aspect of CrossFit. He graduated from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst in 2017 with a Bachelor’s in Public Health, and uses that knowledge, along with his CrossFit L1 certification, to educate athletes to live better mental and physical lives! His goal has always been to make people smile, and coaching helps him achieve that!!
Adam has been coaching CrossFit for seven years and has pursued coaching to become CrossFit Certified Levels 1 and 2. He has a love of all things athletic and when not cheering on athletes at Mt. Tabor he can be found pursuing rock climbing, football, martial arts, bodybuilding, and any other new way to push his body to the limit. Adam believes in body positivity and personal growth and loves CrossFit specifically because each workout can be transformational when an athlete finds the fire inside themselves to be better than they were before. After coaching at several gyms in the area, Adam has found a true community and home at Mt. Tabor.
