Saturday's guest coach, Trevor.

Saturday’s guest coach, Trevor.


Do not be scared by the heavy artillery, this is Trevor Gibson and he will be our guest trainer this Saturday. Trevor is a trainer at CrossFit Roots in Boulder, CO. He has been kind enough to agree to stop by for Saturday’s classes and lead the charge. Now, so you don’t think we would let just anybody come to Verve and coach you guys, here’s a little bit about Trevor:

Trevor has been at CrossFit Roots since 2013. His background includes a Bachelor of Arts from Santa Clara U, four years active duty as a Marine Officer, a Masters in Education from Stanford U, and three-years teaching math at a public school, Summit Preparatory Charter HS. During his time as a teacher, he led his students to the school’s highest Algebra 2 testing scores in its history and started a CrossFit club for students. Trevor’s official CrossFit qualifications include CrossFit Level 1 Certificate Course, CrossFit Kids Course, Coaches Prep Course, and Certified CrossFit Trainer (CF-L3). And on the weekends Trevor travels around the world working for CrossFit Headquarters as part of the CrossFit Kids staff.

So basically, the dude is legit. Now that we’ve made it officially awkward for Trevor to walk in to Verve on Saturday and have you know all about him without him having ever met you, be sure to introduce yourselves and give him a warm Verve welcome. Something I know you would do whether or not I even mentioned it here, cause that’s how legit Verve members are. 

Talk about Verve members being legit, there is a pretty cool opportunity for you all to showcase it. Starting the week of September 8th, CrossFit will begin it’s second year of the CrossFit Team Series. It is an opportunity to have some competitive fun in the off season. Teams are made up of 2 men and 2 women. ANY 2 men and 2 women. During the first week CrossFit will announce several workouts, that much like the Open, will have to be completed and scores submitted within that week. The second week of the event will take place October 6th-12th, with another series of workouts announced and another week to complete them. 

Last year the 4 full time trainers made up Team AC/EC. This year we are coming back with a vengeance, with a slight roster/ team name change. Courtney, Anna, Nate, and Eric are getting signed up to throw down, all you need to do is find 3 friends and throw down with us. We will schedule some times throughout those weeks to get any registered teams together for some fun/ friendly competition. Click here for all the extra information you may seek, including who can be on the team, as well as understanding RX division vs. scaled division. 

Registration starts August 18th, mark your calendars. 

**Also mark your calendar that this Saturday open gym has been cancelled. However, we have added an open gym time on Sunday from 11am-12:30. These changes are for this week only. Don’t try hanging around on Saturday after the 12pm class hoping no one will notice. 🙂
