A word from Wes:
We’re excited to announce that we’ve brought on Travis Reeves as regular coach on our morning schedule. Travis has been a major behind the scenes contributor at CFA since last spring. Most of you have seen him in the gym taking photos for our website, but he also spearheaded the renovation of the oly area and has been managing general maintenance and up keep of the gym.
Travis’s skills go far beyond handy work. He’s is a long time CrossFit coach that has earned his CrossFit Level 1 and Level 2 certification, as well as his USAW Sports Performance Certificate. Before he and his wife moved to Austin, Travis coached, programmed, and operated a small non-profit CrossFit Box in Patterson, NY.
Needless to say, we’re quite excited for Travis to begin his coaching career with us here at CFA. He will be primarily coaching the AM classes that were previously coached by Zach, and be filling in for Ben’s classes while he’s on another IFly adventure. Welcome to the team Travis!
Travis has always enjoyed hard work, mostly in the field of construction and maintenance – Functional fitness has been the best way to stay prepared for any task – roofing in 110 degree weather, digging trench for plumbing, or whatever may be on the punch list that day.
It’s been a love of fitness, CrossFit in particular, that has lead him down the path to become a personal trainer and coach. He really enjoys the deep sense of accomplishment in helping others achieve things they never thought they could be capable of doing.
Travis is an ACE Certified Personal Trainer; as well as CrossFit Level 2 Trainer and has a USA Weightlifting Level 1 Sports Performance Certificate. He reads everything he can get his hands on to stay current on sports science and truly enjoys diving into research on the “why” and “how” of biomechanics and fitness programming. Troubleshooting the more complex weightlifting movements is another passion of his. Sometimes Travis tends to be quiet and drift toward the background of large groups, but once you get him talking, especially one on one, he just might talk your ear off.
A word from Travis:
Just keep keeping on – enjoy the journey – it’s all about putting in the work and you will get results! Training with a wide a variety of people has been a wonderful experience – Their stories are not so much my successes but really their own triumphs – great and small. It’s been awesome to accompany good friends on their path to fitness and now I’m looking forward to new friendships and joining you on your fitness journey!
