My CrossFit journey began in the summer of 2007 at CrossFit San Jose. After completing my first WOD with my husband, Markum, and needing his assistance to wash my hair…I was hooked! Markum and I found CrossFit Cherry Point during our time stationed in North Carolina. CFCP forever changed my life. During my time at Cherry Point, I competed in both individual and team competitions and was given the fortunate opportunity to receive my CrossFit Level 1 certification in the summer of 2010. I had the pleasure of training Marines, spouses of Marines, Civilians and Civilian Contractors aboard Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point. It was at CFCP that I discovered I have a true passion for helping others change their lives.

The amount of support, encouragement, confidence, knowledge and lifelong friendships that I have gained since starting CrossFit, is something I want to share and provide an opportunity for others to experience. It’s simply amazing!

I started Crossfit in 2012 in the back room of my kids’ gymnastics facility.  It was something I was going to do a couple days a week to add some strength conditioning to my running routine.  Within a few weeks I was hopelessly addicted.  Crossfit has made me realize that I am capable of so much more than I ever imagined, both inside and outside of the box.

In 2015, I received my Level 1 Trainer and Crossfit Kids certificates.  When I decided to take this step, I had absolutely no idea why I was going or what I planned to do with them.  Fortunately, nobody asked me those questions, because it has turned out to be one of the best things I have done.  Turns out that watching other people continuously build confidence, gain new skills and hit new PRs is even better than doing it yourself!  And, the Kids….don’t even get me started on the Kids!

CrossFit Level 1 Trainer

I have been an athlete my entire life and have participated in many sports, both competitively and recreational sports.  Sports are a major part of my life, and that is when I found CrossFit.  The experience of being an athlete in CrossFit gives me a great sense of power and confidence. I have seen amazing transformations throughout the year.  Watching my body change and strength gains sky rocket has been an amazing feeling.  At first, I thought this is what CrossFit was all about until I started coaching.  Since coaching, I realized there was so much more to CrossFit than just being an athlete.   I have seen many athletes improve not only in their athletic ability but also in their self confidence.  Being able to watch athletes grow both mentally and physically with the help of  my coaching is far better than having a PR of my own.  This to me is the true meaning of CrossFit.

Bri Restivo

CrossFit Level 1 Trainer

Born and raised In Cheyenne, I grew up playing various sports such as volleyball, basketball and softball.  For as long as I can remember, I have always been busy participating in some sort of activity.  It wasn’t until my first years of college, that I lost that competitive edge I had spent my whole life shaping.  I missed organized sports and most of all I missed that extra push that sports gave me.

I first started CrossFit after weeks of my husband, Bryce, begging me to come try it out.  I was terrified for my first workout in fear that my post-baby body wouldn’t be able to handle it.  After my first WOD (Burpee Box Jumps and Sled Pulls), I was addicted.  I couldn’t stop thinking about how great I felt after the workout.  Who knew that one 10 minute workout would change my life forever.

Over the past year, I have become passionate about CrossFit and the benefits it offers people.  It has made me a better person and has helped me to accomplish goals I never dreamed imaginable.  CrossFit has opened many doors for me and my family.  I have found that competitive edge I once had and I’m able to push myself harder than ever before, both physically and mentally.  My husband and I have found something that both of us enjoy and can do together.  We have met many great people in the CrossFit community that we now consider good friends.

It is my newly found passion to never stop learning, to teach at the best of my ability and help athletes excel and achieve greatness.   I aspire to help others find their true enjoyment in fitness again through teaching CrossFit.  I’m excited for what the future holds for both athletes and coaches at CrossFit Cheyenne.

Freestyle Connection Movement Seminar with Carl Paoli

I initially tried CrossFit after having stumbled across Mark Divine’s SealFit website in 2006 or so. At the time I was finishing my undergrad at Kansas State University, and considering enlisting in the military, so I thought that I should try to get in better shape. I had played rugby while in college, but was recovering from a broken leg and had grown tired of my old gym routine. I had no clue what I was doing at the time, and was just trying to figure the movements and methodology of CrossFit out on my own.

After graduating, the military didn’t happen and I moved to small town in KS where gym equipment was lacking, so I took up competing in triathlons over the next few years. In the summer of 2010 I completed a half ironman, but had found that I had sacrificed quite a bit of strength for endurance.

After moving back to Manhattan, KS, I found out that K-State was starting a CrossFit affiliate through their Department of Kinesiology and promptly joined. One year later in Oct. 2011 I took my Level-1 course. I coached for three and a half years at K-State CrossFit, coaching the regular classes and helping with the CrossFit Kids program, and with a Functional Fitness and Mobility class.

I moved to Cheyenne in 2014 and joined the CFC crew shortly thereafter.

CrossFit Level-1 Trainer

I started really getting into fitness when I was about 17 and I weighed in at over 220 pounds. I was told I was mildly obese. This really changed my outlook on my health so I set out to loose that weight. During that summer, I was able to lose over 30 pounds, I wanted to keep it off so I did the Globo gym thing and noticed that it was not for me and needed something to keep me going. I started CrossFit in 2014, when my friend Ronald asked me to join him in a group workout. Unfortunately that workout was Diane, 21-15-9 of Deadlifts and Handstand Push-ups. Took me over 30 minutes and absolutely destroyed me, but I was hooked. About six months later I noticed that I was pretty good at this whole CrossFit thing and decided to obtain my Level One Certification in February of 2015 so I could use my knowledge to help others in the CrossFit community. I am very passionate about helping others through coaching, because I myself have been at the bottom and without the great coaches that helped me, I would not be where I am now.

I started CrossFit when a box opened in the storage room…yes I said storage room of the gymnastics facility I attended at the time. My first experience with CrossFit was walking around the corner to see Christi at the bottom of a 135lb Snatch (more than my bodyweight at the time) as she was getting ready to stand it up. She stood it up, dropped the bar, and I had to pick my jaw up off the floor. At the time I had not even done a workout, nor did I know what movement Christi just did. All I knew was that I had to try this new to me thing called CrossFit. You see, after 10+ years of competitive gymnastics my body and mind were both falling apart. I was always in pain and I was never happy with myself inside gym. I was taller and thicker than any other gymnast on the team and to say I didn’t fit in was an understatement. So I figured trying this CrossFit thing out couldn’t hurt. For months I stayed after my 3 hour gymnastics practice to suffer through an hour of CrossFit in that cold storage room we dubbed the “Ice Box”. I started loving my body and all the new things I could do with it. I started competing better in gymnastics and most importantly, I finally realized that this body that wasn’t necessarily cut out for gymnastics, was perfectly cut out for this little thing called LIFE! Almost 3 years after I started CrossFit I decided to get my Level 1. I had fallen hard for the amazing community that CrossFit was but especially the community of people that was at CrossFit Cheyenne. The gym had turned into my second home and the people had turned into my second family. At the time, I only wanted to coach kids…No adults for me!! That quickly changed. For the most part, kids believe they can do just about anything. Adults on the other hand, often think the exact opposite. Watching an adult make progressions and PR’s they never thought they could is amazing. It makes me want to be a better Trainer and Athlete myself. As amazing as coaching adults can be there is something that makes me even happier! The kids!! Watching them catch onto new things (and sometimes do them way better than I can) is one of the best things about being a Trainer. These kids are the future of fitness and they are unstoppable. Over the years CrossFit has opened my mind, opened my heart and opened my world, all things I hope it can do for every adult and child who comes through the doors. It has been the greatest decision I have ever made and one of the greatest opportunities to come my way. CrossFit will always be a part of my life and the people I have met through CrossFit will always be family. I hope I can share this feeling of community with everyone who walks through the door!
