      MITCHELCrossFit L1 Coach & Olympic Weightlifting Specialist

      The word CrossFit came into Mitchel’s vocabulary the summer before his freshman year of college. His first ever WOD was a variation of the hero workout DT. This workout consists of dead lifts, cleans, and shoulder press and out of those five rounds he quit 3 times. A workout that was supposed to be done under eight minutes took him double the time. This being said, even though he struggled he came back the next day and five years later the addiction is still here.

      Mitchel was always involved in fitness whether it was specific to sports or just to be active. The three main sports he played competitively were hockey, baseball, and volleyball. He competed for 17 years total in hockey, 8 in baseball, and 4 years in volleyball. Mitchel won state titles multiple times and held leadership roles on many of these teams. Leading by example and mastering specific skills is how he knew he would enjoy coaching.

      He graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Exercise Physiology from Concordia University of Wisconsin. Mitchel has obtained his CrossFit Level 1 Coaching Certification and Attitude Nation Olympic Weightlifting Certification. In the near future he hopes to continue my studies and receive the USA Weightlifting Sports Performance Certification, as well as NSCA’s Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist certification.

      Staying active has always been a priority in Ryan’s life. Starting hockey at the age of 5, there hasn’t been any inactivity since. He moved from home at the age of 16 to play at more competitive levels, which eventually brought him here to Wisconsin to play Division 3 college hockey.

      After graduating from Concordia University Wisconsin in 2015 with a bachelor’s degree in Business Management and Marketing, Ryan decided to stay in the area and expand his studies in the weightlifting community. He became a USA Weightlifting Sport Performance Coach in the summer of 2017 and is looking forward to the opportunity to help athletes grow and become better and more proficient competitors in the gym.

      Ryan joined Moro Performance when the gym first opened its doors in 2015. After 21 years of playing hockey, he found a new passion off of the ice in the CrossFit community. Through a lot of hard work and dedication in the gym, he has met goals set out for himself with aspirations of being able to compete in CrossFit competitions in the future.
