CrossFit Coaches

Alston Alston
Hello everyone! My name is Alston and I'm very excited to get to work with you! I've been CrossFitting since April 2011 and have enjoyed it ever since. My favorite thing about CrossFit is that it's competitive. I've competed in several CrossFit competitions all over Texas and did one recently in Oklahoma. I like all the CrossFit workouts but if I had to pick a favorite it would definitely be King Kong. As for school, I'm currently pursuing my degree in dietetics. CrossFit and nutrition are by far my two biggest passions.
brenden Brendan
I’m Brendan and I am a dual Management and Marketing Major in the Rawls College of Business. I began CrossFit in April of 2012, and have loved it ever since I started. Sports and fitness have been a part of my life since I was a little tyke. I played baseball since age 3 and have dabbled in other sports since then. I play racquetball and in 2013 I was ranked at the National Collegiate level of racquetball.
Josh Josh
I was in the Marine Corps for six years and was part of Ft. Sam Houston Boxing. I was also briefly on a Semi Pro football team and have been a volunteer firefighter. I first discovered CrossFit while deployed to Afghanistan. CrossFit allowed me to keep in shape in the small amount of free time we had. I can honestly say I wish I had found CrossFit much sooner; I could have realized more of my potential in all aspects of my life. One great thing about Corssfit is that it allows people to always improve themselves no matter where they are in life. That's why I love being a CrossFit coach at CrossFit Texas Tech and helping my fellow Red Raiders realize their own potential.
Seth Seth
I began powerlifting in 2008. I powerlifted for four years, training primarily on squat, bench press, and deadlift movements. In the Spring of 2011 I discovered CrossFit. What appealed to me most about CrossFit is the incorporation of Olympic lifts into fast paced, high intensity quick workouts. I quickly became aware of the diversity and versatility of CrossFit, which inspired me to become a CrossFit Texas Tech coach. I am currently a sophomore and I am majoring Exercise Science/Pre-PT. I really like to go snowboarding and mountain biking when possible.
Shelby Shelby
I am currently pursuing a degree in Exercise and Sports Science with a minor in Biology. I would eventually like to go to physical therapy school to receive my DPT. Exercise and fitness have always been part of my life. I played soccer for over 10 years in a competitive setting and then when I came to college, I found CrossFit. I believe that when it comes to fitness you will get out of it what you put in. Always try to be better than yesterday.
