Owner and Coach
Wylie comes from a background in non-profit and sport activism and really long bike rides, having promoted sport and active lifestyles as a tool for social change across the country in several start-up endeavors. Over the past 10 years, Wylie has worked in cities around the country to help individuals recover from substance abuse, homelessness and incarceration. He found CrossFit in 2013 in an effort to rebuild a body broken down from years of solely endurance sports. “I believe that sport’s most valuable gift is as a tool for individual transformation and ultimately social change. I believe that when we sweat and push ourselves, we see who we are meant to be and can share that with others. What is so special about the CrossFit community is that there is no barrier that creates division the way you can experience in other sports. You can’t fumble the ball and let your team down. There’s no winner or loser. The only criteria is effort and inclusion. Something that both a brand new and seasoned athlete can bring in equal measure. Fostering that in our gym while providing a space to build the fittest athlete and community is what excites and inspires me every day.
