CrossFit Verve introduces a new trainer, Joylyn Godinez.

Joylyn hopped over to the dark side as a Verve trainer, after two months of interning and completing her CrossFit Level 1 certification.  She has been an athlete here at Verve for over a year and CrossFitting even longer.  Here's what Joylyn has to say about CrossFit.

What is Crossfit all about to me?  It's become a community (I couldn't imagine my life without) of people, ideas and passions for fitness.  A commitment to making each day better than the last, growing stronger physically, mentally, emotionally, and personally.  When I was first introduced to Crossfit at the firehouse several years ago, I was immediately destroyed and hooked.   Although some days were pretty rough, some were great and I believe you are always better for trying.  When my husband and I joined the Verve family, we found a welcome home full of great training, information, and encouragement.  Armed with new nutrition knowledge, training and friends, we've made huge gains in our fitness and built a lifestyle based on our health.  We both love the Colorado outdoors, hiking, snowshoeing, skiing, and laughing at ourselves.  I presently have the Crossfit Level One Certification, and Gymnastics Certification, and I'm always looking to learn something new.   Crossfit has made my life healthier, more challenging and more fun, and I want to share every bit of it with you.  When I'm not at Verve, I'm a Firefighter/Paramedic at Mountain View Fire Protection District.  I'm pretty much a local kid with lots of family nearby, my fantastic husband and I have two rambunctious mutts named Darby and Doso. I also have a terribly embarrassing habit of crying (alot) whenever I laugh.

We are so happy to have her smiling and "crying" face training at Verve, welcome aboard.

    Joylyn congrats amiga!!!! I’m looking forward to training with or being coached by you. You, Mas, Anna and Alan have been great influences and inspiring me to continue my training. Miss the community!

  2. Jeff "CueBall" :

    I saw back a few days that some firebreathers from Verve are doing a warrior dash, what is that and is there a link? I set a goal this year to compete in as many events as I can. I’ll be missing the Cherry Creek Run for the CF Kids Cert that weekend.

    Congrats my dear friend Joylyn! I am so proud of you and happy for all your successes! You are one amazing woman all around!

  4. Courtney :

    It is because of you and Mas that I even found my way to Verve, I can’t thank you enough for that, and now I’m excited to have you as a trainer. You rock Joylyn and your crying laugh is contagious, thanks for all your awesome enthusiasm. Congratulations!!

  5. Luke :

    Joylyn and Mas- you both are amazing. Congrats Joylyn on being sworn in. 🙂

  6. Stef :

    Yeah, I second all of this.. Love Joylyn and Mas. They were both super funny and encouraging upon the first time I met them. I remember seeing a park WOD (first start area of the verve) and there was a picture of Joylyn dead lifting 300 ibs… I thought I’d be super intimidated working out with her. Little did I know… congrats dear friend on all of your accomplishments!

  7. greg b. :

    Yeah I guess your ok by me too Joylyn. Remember way back when….

  8. Justin E. :

    Joylyn, I’m truly excited for you. You are an awesome positive, friendly person who I think will make another great CFV coach. Congrats, I know you well be great. A side note, I believe you were the first Verve member to introduce yourself to me at my first workout in early January and I must say your welcome exuded the excitement, passion, and friendliness that makes the CrossFit community so amazing and unique. Thank you.

  9. Holly :

    Congrats Joylyn!! I’m sooo excited for you! You are such an inspiration!

  10. Congrats Joylyn! You and Mas have really been great teachers and friends. You should be SO PROUD of how far you’ve come and the gift you give people (like myself) in sharing everything that has made you so successful. I really appreciate it and I look forward to some sweet training!!! Rock on sistah!

  11. For Jeff:
    Some of us are the 2pm wave, some 1pm. 🙂

    I’ve only got love for you, Joylyn!!

  14. Jeff "CueBall" :

    Thank you Catherine

  15. Matt :

    …and to think, I thought you hated me when we first met in Commons Park. Joylyn, you’re a great addition to the trainers. Your verve is infectious.

  16. Joylyn :

    Everyone–Thank you for all your kindness! I’m blessed and honored to be part of such a genuine family here at Verve.
    ps. Matt, it was my stubborn look of spirit. 🙂 I’m eternally grateful to both you and Cherie for your training, inspiration, and friendship.
