From all types of backgrounds and wielding a variety of experience, CrossFit Impulse is led by a team of Level 1, and Level 2 Trainers. These coaches are true professionals, driven by a passion for helping others.
I am passionate about fitness, Cross-fit and being a part of people’s journey toward better health. CrossFit has been transformational in my own life and after doing it for several years, I began coaching in April 2020 and currently CF-L1 certified. I am passionate about CrossFit and the methodology because I know first hand that it works. I love connecting with people and helping them push beyond their boundaries to move forward and achieve their goals and dreams. One of my favorite things to tell people is that CrossFit is for everyone. I have amazing wife Erin have two fun-loving kids and a very large, lively dog named Gypsy.
Will here! I stumbled my way into CrossFit in early 2015 while in graduate school for archaeology, and it soon turned from a hobby to an obsession. Shortly after I took a leap and turned that obsession into a new career, jumping ship from my graduate studies and diving headfirst into this whole fitness thing. In my years of coaching CrossFit I have found fulfillment in sharing my experience, knowledge, and mistakes with athletes of all ages and skill levels. Being able to share in the successes of athletes and to help them navigate through the inevitable struggles is gratifying in a way nothing else is. I started CrossFit for the personal challenge it provided, but I’ve stuck around for the people and the relationships I’ve built and will continue to build. I’m a CF-L1 with a few tricks up my sleeve, and I’m always on the lookout for ways to hone my skills. I’ve been at this a little while now and I don’t see an end in sight!
Hi! Melody, aka Rocket, here. My brother, Dustin, introduced me to CrossFit in 2016 after I graduated college (Roll Tide), and I’ve never looked back. I have struggled with body image issues, and CrossFit has helped me embrace loving what my body can do rather than care about the number on the scale. My hope is to help others, who feel the same way, find that their bodies are strong and capable of so much more. I want to give others the same praise, support, and positive coaching that I received so that we can better ourselves together.
Is this thing on? I’m Coach Dolla Bill. Short for “Dolla Bill, Deutch Marks, Yens, and pounds, rocking debits to downs”. I enlisted in the Alabama National Guard in 2013. Stemming from that, I picked up CrossFit in 2017 to better my military career, and it was the best decision I’ve ever made. Serving my country and helping others has always been a major part of life. Being a Coach here at CrossFit Impulse has not only solidified that passion of mine but has added fuel to flame. I currently hold my CF-L1.
Hi there! My name is Leslie and I started my fitness journey in the fall of 2016. I became part of the CrossFit Impulse family in the summer of 2018 as an athlete, and received my my Adaptive and Inclusive training certification. I’ve been coaching adaptive athletes since the spring 2021, I have a passion for helping others and love watching my athletes accomplishments!
Valerie Miller is a US Army Veteran, Licensed Nurse, and the mother of dogs. She was introduced to CrossFit during her time in the service and has continued her training since 2017. When she’s not petting dogs or training she is also Impulse’s official photographer and creative content specialist. She loves the view from behind the camera and her passion comes through in the high quality photo’s of our athletes doing work.
Jess “Da Boss” has worked for CrossFit Impulse first as an office assistant and then as general manager since 2013. She started her CrossFit journey in the summer of 2012 when a friend invited her to do the Warrior Dash, a 5k obstacle course race, and said they should do “this thing called CrossFit” to prepare. After an initiation workout of push-ups, box jumps, and hill sprints she was hooked. “I love the feeling of exhausted accomplishment after a workout I didn’t think I’d even finish.” Her favorite movement is the Clean and Jerk and favorite workouts include any form of cleans and rowing.
Coach Steve here! I found CrossFit in 2017 after a life spent in pursuit of sport, strength, and self-improvement was derailed by injuries. CrossFit was a natural fit and was instrumental in rehabilitating old war wounds while expanding my athletic ability in innumerous ways. Physical improvements are awesome… but let me tell you about the best part of CFI: the people. I could not be prouder of the relationships I’ve developed in our little village. Forged in the fire of shared sweat and effort, we make fast exercise, we make fitness, but more than that, we make memories. If you can’t tell, just talking about our tribe of savages gets me fired up! I bring more that just fire and inspiration to the table- I am CF-L2, Project Management Professional (PMP), a Certified Model-Netics management training instructor, and an Army Veteran. I’m passionate about helping people develop as athletes and as leaders, both of which you will find plenty at CrossFit Impulse.
