Who we are
We are moms, dads, doctors, professors, students , nurses, ex-athletes, and all of the in between. We range from our 20s to our 60s. We are a community of individuals who are driven in our like minded pursuit of long term health and improved fitness. Our awesome community is here not just to support each other inside the gym but outside the gym. We are here to encourage each other to reach past our self imposed limits mentally and physically to reach our goals regardless of age or occupation.
Meet the Coaches
Wes has been coaching CrossFit since early 2015 – while it’s not his full-time occupation, it is one of the more satisfying uses of his time. Wes loves to see people of all ages, ability levels, physical conditions, and backgrounds grow in skill and confidence. His own sports background has been influenced by weight training, martial arts, rugby, and some crazy stuff from his days in the US Navy (he’ll gladly tell some sea stories of dubious accuracy). Wes credits CrossFit with bringing some consistency and discipline to his workouts, as well as growth in mental resiliency. He is CrossFit Certified Level 1.
Alex is the owner and head 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, Gymnastistics, Kids CrossFit, Mobility, and she's a Catalyst Olympic Lifting attendee.
President’s Day 2012 began the CrossFit and MTCF journey for Melissa. Experience and involvement allowed her an opportunity to become a coach in 2014. Since then Melissa has developed a staple with early AM classes that she challenges naysayers to try at least once. Her focus on technique & movement shows her desire to improve skill and function for our members. Melissa is CrossFit certified Level 1, and has a BS in Exercise and Sport Science from OSU.

She believes CrossFit is for everyone and teaches a foundation of functional fitness crucial to living a healthy, independent lifestyle. Katie is Level 1 CrossFit certified and is a NASM Certified Personal Trainer. She loves working with people to reach their goals, and more importantly, seeing the confidence that comes when people find they’re capable of more than they thought possible.
