Kimberly started doing CrossFit in 2010. She quickly realized the awesome benefits of CrossFit and was eager to help Clint when they decided to take over as the owners. She helps with our teen program and the behind the scenes work that needs to be done. Kim works part time as an oncology nurse and is a full time to mom to their two little girls. Prior to that, she worked for the City of San Diego for over ten years teaching children of all ages and abilities how to swim and spent three years working as a substitute teacher for kids in grades K-12. Kim took long-term sub positions teaching high school physical education and middle school science. After seeing the lack of physical fitness with kids in the school systems, Kim wanted to help set up a teen program to give kids a positive physical outlet aside from school competitive sports. After having kids and realizing how challenging it is to workout with little ones, she also created a program in the gym to offer childcare so that moms (and dads) can get their workouts in!

Clint started as a customer with CrossFit Coronado in October 2008. He became a trainer in August 2009, and the owner in August 2010. He has been an athlete since he was young. Starting with 7 years of gymnastics and martial arts, as well as high school football and track. In college, he got into endurance running and swimming. He was first introduced to CrossFit in the military. A CrossFit athlete is one that is well rounded in all areas of fitness. It was this, and the fact that there is absolutely no way to duplicate the results that CrossFit produces for the short amount of time the workouts require, that initially hooked Clint. Clint has personally experienced improvement in every aspect of fitness, with much shorter workout times. He competed in the SoCal Regionals in 2010 with a team and in 2011 and 2012 as an individual. Clint thoroughly enjoys helping people reach their goals. Clint recently completed a Doctorate in Physical Therapy from the university of Saint Augustine and is excited to integrate PT into the gym. His goal is to help professionalize the fitness industry and bring educated and safe training to everyone. Clint enjoys working with everyone, especially people who need more individualized attention or modifications. If you’re interested in CrossFit Coronado or personal training, email Clint.
