From all types of backgrounds and wielding a variety of experience, CrossFit Impulse is led by a team of Level 1, Level 2, and Level 3 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.


If you are reading this…What’s up? I’m Coach Kobro. I’ve been doing CrossFit since 2013, starting in my senior year of college back at Tennessee Tech University. Since 2014, I’ve been lucky enough to have people call me “Coach”, and in that time I’ve seen some amazing things, met countless people, and built invaluable relationships. Seeing people work so hard inspires me to keep reaching and to be better as a Coach and leader. I’m currently CF-L3, CCFT certified with a few extra tools in my belt from CrossFit Gymnastics, CrossFit Weightlifting, and USAW. I’m loud, a fast-talker, and enjoy some friendly competition when it’s time to throw down, but most of all I’m here to help. My mission is to make a difference. My dream is to do so for a lifetime.


Kaitlin is a Level 1 certified coach. Growing up she played many sports including soccer, basketball, volleyball, and her favorite being softball. She attended UNA in Florence where she got her B.S in Computer Science and made the move to Huntsville to pursue the career of a Software Engineer. She started CrossFit in 2016 once she got bored with trying to find a routine in a regular gym. One of the many things Kaitlin loves about CrossFit is the scalability of it all. This is one of the many reasons that led her to being a coach. She loves showing athletes that you can keep moving no matter what.


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.


Josh is a CrossFit Level 2 Trainer and Mechanical Engineer. Growing up, Josh played soccer and football while practicing “backyard” gymnastics as a hobby. He started CrossFit in 2014 and began coaching in 2017. He most enjoys CrossFit for its variety and community. His favorite aspect of coaching is helping people achieve new fitness skills. In his free time, you can find Josh working on a DIY project or unsuccessfully bow-fishing on his homemade barrel boat.


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!  


What’s up guys?! I’m Coach Haden and I’ve been doing CrossFit since 2015. I went to Auburn University for Fitness Conditioning and Performance, LaGrange College for my Masters in Strength and Conditioning, I have my CSCS, and have had my CFL1 since 2017. CrossFit has taken every aspect of training and fitness that I love and combined them into a beautiful, sweaty masterpiece. Here at CFI, I specialize in coaching adaptive athletes in an effort to seamlessly incorporate anyone with physical disabilities into our classes. I’m still a science nerd at heart and love using what I’ve learned to help contribute to our mission. I’m extremely excited to have anyone in any stage of their health come work with us and discover the fun they can have through fitness!


“Tha Guy” has tasted all types of fitness for the past 20 years, whether it be cross country, globo gyms, Mud Runs, team obstacle courses, you name it. 6 years ago he drank the Kool-Aid and dove into CrossFIt, and has been on the gain train ever since. You won’t see Guy without his camera capturing the many magical moments and faces that CFI training has to offer! He supports Impulse with a variety off media with the focus of epic video content. His passion is to become his best self and help others do the same using the power of storytelling through the lens.

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 natrual 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.
