He is also CrossFit Level 1 certified and has been coaching at Twin City CrossFit for over a year.
Siera Nelson is a certified CrossFit Level 1 Trainer with a background in Kinesiology. She is also Functional Movement Screening certified and has been doing personal and group fitness training for years.
