Davina Collins

Coach Davina began her CrossFit journey about two years ago when she showed up at the box with her husband Billy. Reluctant at first, she stated that she "just wanted to row" a little bit. Fast forward to 2014 and she has become a fierce competitor and has become a Level1 CrossFit Coach. Davina was on the 2013 Heart of America team for Terra-Firma. Davina has a way of connecting with new comers, and making them feel welcome in the community. She has begun to take on a large share of the on-ramp classes and does an outstanding job of mentoring the new athletes.

Gil Christensen

Coach Gil has been a staple at Terra-Firma pretty much since the beginning.  There may be no more likable guy to be around.  Gil achieved his CFL1 cert in 2013. In addition to being a great coach and motivator, he is the only guy who spends ALL his time at the gym.  Gil keeps things running and has really "classed the joint up".  One of Gil's passions is olympic lifting, and it shows in his impeccable form and ability to coach proper form.  If anyone can fix Davina's overhead squat, we think it will be Gil.

Heath "Bar" Strauch

Coach Heath has been with the gym since mid-2012.  Heath came from a heavy-iron body builder type background but quickly adapted to the CrossFit way.  Heath brings a ton of youthful enthusiasm to the box and, when his ADHD is under control, is a talented coach.  Heath is also a fierce competitor having been on Terra-Firma's Heart of America teams for the past two years.  Heath also competed well at the Europa War Games in Dallas in 2013.  We all love Heath dearly and currently have him in anger management classes to work on his temper, which can get out of control when the old men, Shawn and Billy, beat him in a WOD...which doesn't happen often.  We look forward to watching Heath go far in CrossFit.  I suspect we may be watching him in Carson, CA before too long.

Rick looks forward to growing his role as a coach and mentor as he lends his business expertise to help the gym grow.  Rick has become a huge asset to the gym and an ambassador for the CrossFit lifestyle.  We are lucky to have him as part of our family.

Amanda Tolley

Coach Amanda joined Terra-Firma around two years ago.  General consensus was that she was too petite for CrossFit.  Well folks, general consensus was WRONG!  Amanda has come on as an athlete and continues to get better.  Amanda was a member of the 2013 Heart of America competition team and truly showed that she has a ton of heart.  Amanda recently completed her Level1 Cert and has begun to help with coaching duties.  She is an asset to our box and we all look forward to watching her continue to grow as an athlete.  3-2-1 Go definitely flips her Beast switch on.
