A Message From Tim:  I have competed at several different levels in a few different sports over the years, and enjoyed them all. Finding something that pushes you to develop your mind and body, as well as your character, is a goal worth pursuing. CrossFit has afforded me the opportunity to once again test myself in new ways and provides an arena for these tests on a daily basis.

As a lifelong athlete, I have learned the value of team training and working toward common goals. Ups and downs, gains, plateaus and setbacks are all part of the process. Stay humble in victory (gains,PRs), re-focus and identify areas of opportunity in defeat (plateaus, setbacks). If you need any help, ask! You can find me coaching group classes, and am also available for 1-on-1 sessions or small group training if you are looking  to achieve a specific goal.  From high school athletes looking to get a leg-up on their competition, to the avid runner struggling to gain lean muscle mass, to retirees seeking to gain greater range of motion and more energy for the everyday demands of life; I have truly enjoy the bonds formed while overcoming the different challenges presented by each individual with whom I have worked in these settings.

Stay healthy my friends.

-Coach Garland

“No citizen has the right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training. What a disgrace it is for a man to grow old without ever seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable.”-Socrates

Genevieve Garland || General Manager

About Genevieve: Genevieve, General Manager and Coach For Life, joined the CrossFit Austin Team back in 2013. She joined the crew with a diverse movement background. Gen started her life as a mover at a age 3 with dance classes. Training for years in a number of techniques and disciplines, she now holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance Performance and has trained and performed with companies and choreographers in the Austin area. Genevieve started CrossFitting in 2011 to supplement her dance training and found more value in it than she even predicted! Along with 9+ years of experience teaching dance, she has been coaching and providing personal training since 2012 and is a CrossFit Level 2 trainer and USAW Level 1 Sports Performance Coach. 

These days, her own training has shifted to help her keep up with her spirited toddler and prepare juggling two in tow. As the seasons of life shift, so do your training needs, so while you won’t see her on the floor coaching quite as often, know that she is still behind the scenes helping to keep the ship afloat!

A Message from Genevieve:  I truly believe that training is about so much more than just the hour in the gym. Health and fitness are lifestyle choices that can tremendously enrich our lives. My goal is to help others find passion in moving and apply that passion to create and live their best lives. To me, the only way to do that is to get to know each other on a personal level. Every person that walks through these doors is coming from a different place and has different goals so I want to meet you where you are and guide you through your journey.
