Lily Webber

Coach and Owner, CF-L1, CF-weightlifting, CF-Gymnastics,CMT

All of my life I’ve wanted to see what limits I am capable of pushing past, what obstacles I can overcome. Climb the unclimbable tree, ride the untamed horse, scale the wall, swim out to that ship. Faster. Farther. Harder. After growing up riding horses and doing Junior Lifeguards I began my journey with Triathlon racing as I saw that as the most diverse and difficult thing I could find at the time. I spent 10 years racing competitively, training and coaching others. I’ve also spent time rock climbing, Stand Up paddling, Surfing and doing Bikram Yoga. When I discovered CrossFit I immediately knew it was the golden ticket for obtaining the highest level of fitness, always changing, always challenging and as diverse and difficult as it gets. My goal is to guide you so that you may discover that you are able to do unbelievable things, superhero like things. Don’t be afraid to realize your highest potential and to find that personal power in order to live life fearlessly. Our bodies are amazing machines, all we need to do is dedicate ourselves to unleashing their power.

Anyone who has had the pleasure to be coached by him can testify. Bucky has fallen in love with CrossFit training and Olympic Lifting as it has shown a way for him to continually grow and evolve as an athlete and a human being. Finding himself unsatisfied by the typical training found in your average gym, CrossFit offered him an avenue to train skills transferrable to his sports of interest while still focusing on strength building.

I am a 54 year old mother of 3 and grandmother of 1. I was introduced to CrossFit in 2009and have enjoyed it ever since. I started CrossFit to simply become healthier and have since evolved from a recreational athlete to a 4x CrossFit Games athlete. I have competed in the 2013-2014-2015-2016 games. I began coaching in 2014 to spread my passion for this sport. I want to encourage women to become fearless and reach fitness goals they never thought they could.
