The Landrush Coaches
Jeremi started CrossFit about six months after moving to Oklahoma from Calgary Alberta Canada in 2014. Brought to LandRush by a friend, Jeremi was immediately hooked by the intensity and challenge of the sport, and, most importantly, the camaraderie and family feel of the LandRush community.
About a year after first stepping into the box Jeremi got his CrossFit Level 1 certificate and has been coaching classes here ever since. While working hard to maintain the integrity of the programming Jeremi, loves to have fun in his classes and draws the most joy from watching athletes break through barriers and surprise themselves.
After many years of training at local ‘globo gyms’, Russell started Crossfit in 2009. He initially started because his wife, Lindsay, who was tired of treadmill workouts at the gym, signed them both up for CrossFit. It took exactly one workout for Russell to fall in love with the community of CrossFit and the competitiveness it provided. Having played multiple sports from the age of 4, the draw to something that was not only competitive, but also involved a fun/fit community, was irresistible.
Whether it’s a pick-up game of basketball, soccer, or football, or an endurance race like the Hotter ‘n Hell bike race, half marathon/marathon, Spartan race or Tough Mudder, Russell just enjoys being active and pushing himself. The absolute #1 thing that gets him excited about CrossFit is the community and the camaraderie garnered within the CrossFit gym.
Russell has a passion for seeing people reach their own potential physically and strongly believes the CrossFit methodology is the best way to reach that potential. He gets excited about people at all different physical levels pushing themselves to improve so they can live life to the fullest. Russell loves the concept of community through fitness!
My husband Russell and I started CrossFit in 2010 in Richardson, TX. Prior to CrossFit, working out for me was drudgery that produced marginal results. I struggled to push myself working out solo at a local gym. It wasn’t a sustainable plan for wellness!
A friend encouraged us to give CrossFit a try. I was terrified the first day but am so grateful I walked through the door! I made it through the first WOD (workout of the day) and was floored by how fun it was to workout hard alongside other people and I appreciated having a coach tell me what to do. I kept coming back for three main reasons: the variety (still amazes me 8 years later), the community, and the results. After six months, my metabolism had transformed. It was fun to learn new skills as an adult and to feel more confident in daily tasks like moving furniture, yard work, etc.
I continued doing CrossFit through three pregnancies and postpartum experiences and feel the CrossFit methodology has allowed me to remain physically strong and energetic despite major physical/hormonal changes. As a coach, it is a joy to watch athletes come in the box at all fitness levels and through hard work and commitment, achieve a quality of life they otherwise would not have been able to enjoy. I love learning and sharing about nutrition. My favorite aspect of CrossFit today is how successful it is globally at pushing back chronic disease through constantly-varied, high-intensity fitness and a focus on nutrition. CrossFit is truly changing lives, mine being one!
Teri is a lifetime fitness fanatic and competition junkie who found CrossFit almost by accident in March of 2015. She was training for a Tough Mudder competition when she saw the sign for the opening of CrossFit LandRush. She had run marathons, triathlons, long distance bike races and multiple adventure competitions, but never CrossFit. She thought it might be a good way to get a well-rounded training regimen in a short amount of time.
After just a few classes she was hooked! Three years later she passed her Level 1 CrossFit certification and became a coach. In fact, Teri has been on a mission since starting at CrossFit LandRush to help others discover the benefits of functional fitness training within a supportive community. Her passion is to help others stay fit for life. She’s specializes in BootFit training and is the founding member of the LandRush Morning Coffee Club. She and her husband Rick are big believers in the benefits of surrounding yourself with people who can make you a better person—physically, spiritually, emotionally and relationally. She will tell you it’s not just about the fitness, it’s mostly about the community that makes CrossFit LandRush a special place.
Megan started CrossFit in 2015 while overseas on deployment. She was bored with the main gym bi/tri kind of days and the same rotation of exercises. When a friend dragged her to CrossFit and showed her a new way to achieve fitness and health.
Megan has a history from a young age of competing in sports; from swimming to softball. She’s always enjoyed the competitive side of the athlete next to you pushing you, encouraging you and making you better.
In 2016 She decided to get her level one and found even more excitement in coaching and seeing others achieve goals they didn’t know they could.
Whether it’s coaching, competing, lifting a barbell or hanging out with fellow CrossFitters, Megan finds herself at home with the CrossFit community
From a very young age, Brandon has been involved in sports, playing baseball, basketball, football, golf, cross country, and swimming. He played baseball, basketball, cross country, and football during high school and continued to remain athletic throughout his military career.
CrossFit has given Brandon a chance to work with people from all walks of life, but he is hugely passionate about working with veterans, and more specifically wounded veterans. Having the ability to scale every workout to meet everyone’s needs is extremely gratifying to him.
Brandon brings a tough work ethic and mindset to the gym every day. He believes that there is ALWAYS time to get a workout in, whether that be at 4:30am or 8pm. With a mixture of athletics and military training, Brandon is always up for a new challenge, and coaching the amazing athletes at CFLR has been an awesome experience for him. CrossFit was an easy sell for him due to the similarities in relation to organized athletics and military PT and he hasn’t looked back since Day 1.
Athletic his entire life, Justin played many sports from a young age, and played in competitive leagues throughout high school and more “social” leagues after college. Justin graduated from Oklahoma State with a degree in Health Promotion, focusing in Exercise and Health.
Justin has always been passionate about training, but when he found CrossFit in 2015 he instantly found a passion for the sport. He enjoys the variety of CrossFit. “It never gets boring,” he says. “The challenges are forever and that makes me strive for more than I thought I was capable of.” His competitive spirit helps him push other athletes to the next level.
Justin joined CrossFit LandRush in 2015 and fell in love with the community before he ever knew he was going to be involved in coaching it.
In 2017, he took the CrossFit Level 1 course and gained a whole new appreciation of CrossFit. His favorite thing about coaching is the constant pursuit of improvement and the increase of human capacity that he sees around himself on a daily basis. Whether it be a more competitive athlete snatching a small house or a beginner getting their first pull up or box jump, it’s all about the joy he sees in athletes improving their everyday lives! You don’t know what everyone’s past or current situations are, but as soon as they step inside the gym, they transform, inside and out.
