June Guest Coach: Forrest Martinez!

As most of you guys know everyone’s favorite cat lover, Coach Ben Wells, is quite the world traveler! Since we 100% support folks going on adventures, we always do our best to make due without Coach Ben while he teaches folks how to skydive on a boat.  That said, it does present scheduling challenges for us so we decided to think outside the box for the upcoming month of June.

I’d like to give a warm welcome to our guest coach Forrest Martinez.  I’ve known Forrest for almost 6 years now and he has always been a very impressive young man. Forrest helps run his family box CrossFit Optimistic in San Antonio, and is fellow Texas Aggie set to graduate next fall with a degree in Chemistry. Forrest has been an individual client of mine, and has been coaching CrossFit from a very young age. He will take over the bulk of Ben’s schedule starting in June until Ben’s returns in early July!

A message from Forrest:

I’m a senior at Texas A&M studying Chemistry and will graduate this December. I’ve  been involved in the CrossFit community for almost 7 years, and earned my CrossFit Level 1 certification in 2012. I enjoy coaching athletes of all ages for the past 5 years at my family’s box in San Antonio, TX: CrossFit Optimistic.  I’ve also had the opportunity to volunteer at the South Central Regional (2012-2014), California Regional (2015), and the Crossfit Games (2014-2015).

When I’m not at the gym, I love spending time with my family and brewing coffee. I can’t wait to share my passion for CrossFit with the fine folks of CFA, and I promise a positive workout experience for everyone!
