CFA Welcome New Coaches || Zach Lane & Josh Harris!
From CFA Management:
CrossFit Austin is proud to introduce the newest members of our Coaching Staff, Zach Lane & Josh Harris. These guys are joining our team with a wealth of knowledge and athletic experience! We’ll let them tell you more about themselves… but we’re excited to have these two on our team! We’ve brought these guys on board to focus primarily on personal training as a way to help our community reach their goals, but you’ll see them in many rolls. Be sure to welcome these guys to the community next time you see them!
About Zach: Zach has been an avid CrossFitter since early 2012 where he needed something to keep the competitive juices flowing. Having been involved in all kinds of organized sports from an early age and all throughout college, CrossFit was the next step in evolving his mind and body. Along with his degree in Sport Management from Southern New Hampshire University, Zach has studied many levels of fitness and nutrition, both in school, and on his own including acquiring his CrossFit Level 1 certificate. He stays very active outside the gym as well, taking part in rec sports and anything outdoors. He tries to stay active in the community, working out with people all around Austin and the country when traveling.
A Message From Zach: My true passions in life all have to do with exercise, nutrition and people. Needless to say, I can’t wait to start this new journey at CFA with so many great, Athletes and Coaches with so much knowledge and experience. As soon as I joined CFA, I knew this gym was on a different level than other gyms I have experienced. I look forward to meeting every single person that comes through the gym and being there for anyone that has questions or simply wants another eye to enhance their experience. I am very competitive and vocal with my coaching and hope to spark that flame in those that need an extra push in their workout.

About Josh: Josh attained a B.S. in Sports and Exercise Science with an Emphasis in Exercise Physiology from West Texas A&M University. He is currently attending Texas State University for his M.S. in Exercise Science. At Texas State, Josh is a Graduate Teaching Assistant. One the weekends, he enjoys his passion for wine and bartends at Hye Meadow Winery in Hye, Texas. He is a CrossFit Level 1 Certified Trainer and ACSM- Health Fitness Specialist certified.
A Message From Josh: All of my life, I’ve been active. Growing up in a military family, we moved consistently; however, I have always had sports. In high school, I played football, basketball, baseball, ran track and swam. I then went on to play college football for all 4 years at West Texas and had the opportunity to play professionally for a year with the indoor team, Amarillo Venom.
Being involved with so many activities, I’ve always wondered how things work and what can I do to improve them. These curiosities lead me to be heavily interested in sports performance, exercise science and bettering our health. Being part of the Crossfit Austin family gives me the chance to do so. Whether it’s getting off the couch or getting prepared for the next competition, there is no better time than now! “In Omnia Paratus”
