Britt is a native of Minnesota, where she grew up running track and riding horses. Britt graduated from Argosy University with an Associate's degree in Veterinary Technology and works full-time as a certified vet tech specializing in horses at Iron Horse Equine Medical & Surgical Services in Elizabeth, CO.
Britt always admired fit, strong-looking women but didn't know what to do to achieve their well-toned physique for herself. While she always enjoyed running, it wasn't until Britt met her fiance and he introduced her to weightlifting that she got bit by the iron bug. Britt was first exposed to CrossFit in 2013 when she watched the CrossFit games. A few months later Highlands Ranch CrossFit opened their doors and the rest is history. Britt obtained her Level 1 certification in January 2015 and started coaching at Highlands Ranch CrossFit shortly after. Outside of CrossFit, Britt enjoys riding her horses Phantom and Cal.
Matt, coach and co-owner, grew up in a small town in southern New Mexico where he participated in sports and various other recreational activities. He joined the Army right out of high school, where he served in combat operations as an infantry paratrooper with the 82nd Airborne Division. Although Matt was active in high school, the Army tested his fitness by pushing him to improve his endurance, strength, and mental fortitude. Even today Matt continues to improve his endurance, strength, and mental fortitude – just now it is through CrossFit.
Matt started his CrossFit journey with Highlands Ranch CrossFit in June of 2014, and has not looked back. He has since become a CrossFit Level 1 trainer and has been coaching at Highlands Ranch CrossFit since May of 2016.
When Matt is not coaching, he spends his time working for the Department of the Interior and enjoying life with his wife Kim. He enjoys playing sports as well as watching them. Matt is always ready for a cold drink and good football game…and pizza (shh).
Jess, coach and co-owner, is from San Antonio, Texas and has also lived in Houston, TX and St. Louis, MO. She graduated with a degree in Psychology from Texas Tech University. Her husband's job has moved them around a bit but in August of 2015 they moved to Colorado because they fell in love with Colorado. Jess is a mom of two young children and it is important to her that her kids value an active healthy lifestyle that will allow them to explore and accomplish their future goals.
Before CrossFit Jess enjoyed yoga, cycling, and kick boxing to keep fit. CrossFit was never something she saw her self doing. In February of 2015, after some major convincing by her husband she went to her first foundations class in a CrossFit box in St. Louis. She was instantly inspired seeing so many strong women and a group of people that were working out and cheering for each other like they were a team. Before CrossFit Jess always felt like she worked out to be skinny, but shortly after starting CrossFit her focus shifted to becoming stronger, faster and more capable. CrossFit changed her view of health and fitness completely. Within the first 6 months of her CrossFit journey she knew she wanted to learn as much as she could; she became a Level 1 CrossFit Trainer in order to share CrossFit with others.
When Jess is not at the box she enjoys spending time with her family, camping, hiking, skiing, and exploring Colorado.
