Meet our Team

TRAVIS

Background: I was first introduced to the gym in 1998 as a freshmen in high school by my father. Sports have always been a big part of my life. Between the gym, football, wrestling, track, boxing, and MMA I have been surrounded with a variety of athletics my entire life. I completed my CrossFit level 1 in 2015 with Chris Spealler.

Favorite Movement: Honestly, I can’t think of a movement that I don’t like. Throwing weight around is my idea of a good time! If I had to choose I enjoy the gymnastics movements the most because of the difficulty and skill that they require.

Favorite Workout: I feel like long chippers are my jam because when I look around and see people getting tired it motivates me to push harder. I can’t get through this question without mentioning my girl, “Fran”. Anything that gives me butterflies and leaves me feeling like I got my ass kicked that bad is a winner in my book!

Why you enjoy coaching at LINS FITT: I enjoy coaching because of the gratification I get from watching other people transform both physically and mentally! I am so proud of what Lins FITT has became over the last couple years and all the people that have contributed to that. As a coach I get to be a part of people's journey. Every journey is exciting and unique. You never really know what to expect, but keeping people moving in the right direction is an absolute privilege and an honor.



SARA

Background: I majored in K-12 Physical Education, Health and Recreation while running college track. I come from a collegiate running background, which made it very hard to focus on my weaknesses of strength and gymnastics. My husband, brother in law and I started our own small gym in a basement, along with me working out at a cross training gym a couple times a week. We loved the workouts and in 2016 started our own program: LINS FITT.

I am currently a Middle School Assistant Principal and Athletic Director and the mother of 3 awesome kids!

Favorite Movement: Pistols & Cleans

Favorite Workout: Chippers with running in them :)

Why you enjoy coaching at LINS FITT: I enjoy watching people change both physically and mentally. I love to coach athletes that give it 110%, that don’t care about what the person next to them is doing and leaves it on the floor with no excuses. We are a family here, and I enjoy showing up to laughter, joking and all around great time!
