Our head coaches and co-owners Derek Hutchison and Jonathan Burns have more experience and have been coaching CrossFit longer than anyone in North Idaho. Combined, they have over a decade of CrossFit coaching experience and double that coaching other athletes. Though they may look alike, their distinct athletic backgrounds and interests combine to offer our athletes broad, expert coaching simply not found at any other gym. Jonathan and Derek carefully plan every day at CrossFit Coeur d’Alene. They respect the fact that our athletes work hard to achieve their goals, and each one-hour session is prepared accordingly.
Our Coaches are some of the most experienced around. CrossFit Coeur d’Alene requires a minimum of 1 year of CrossFit coaching experience before leading a class, a standard you won’t find at many other gyms. In addition to this, these coaches have shown their passion and proficiency in leading a CrossFit class.
We are lucky to have an amazing crew of Assistant Coaches. Our assistant coaches work with our newer athletes during our group CrossFit classes, keeping the pace steady and allowing everyone to work at their own capacity.
