Ever since I can remember I have loved to be active. Growing up I was always pushed into sports by my Mom. Baseball and Basketball were the sports that I loved to play. It didn’t matter to me that I wasn’t the biggest or the best on the team, what mattered to me was…..I WAS ON THE TEAM. I enjoy being a part of a group of people with a common goal. Whether that’s winning or just participating, it was far bigger to me that I was a “part of”!!

Along came CrossFit at the age of 48. My wife of 29 years came home and told me about it. She thought I might like it because we did something different all of the time. Gymnastics was a big part of it and I was pretty good in that area.

Here I am 7 years later and yes, CrossFit has changed my life. I get to be a “part of” something special to the most amazing group of people in the world. I love our membership and couldn’t imagine not having each and every one of them in my life today.

We work hard and we have fun. It’s not always easy and we don’t always laugh. Emotions are a part of our growing process on a continual basis. Once everyone understands that, the sky is the limit to our success.

I have been fortunate enough to have participated in the CrossFit Masters Games age 50-54 2014 and 2016. Both years I didn’t anticipate making the Games, but I did. It was because of our members that pushed me to get there.

CrossFit isn’t for everyone, but everyone should at least try it. I guarantee you’ll enjoy what we do if you have any desire to become fit.

There is only 1 requirement……..SHOW UP AND WE’LL DO THE REST!!!!

Jaime Bennett

Level 1 CrossFit Trainer

I found CrossFit in May of 2013 with the encouragement of a friend. At the time, I was an avid runner with a few half marathons under my belt. Yet, once I participated in my first CrossFit class, I was hooked. I immediately fell in love with the fast pace, ever changing workouts, sense of community, and enthusiasm from fellow athletes and coaches that encouraged me to strive to be better than I was the day before.

I became CFL1 trainer to learn another aspect of CrossFit; I wanted to coach and encourage other athletes, just as my coaches did for me from the beginning. It is a pleasure to be able to provide my knowledge at Turn 2 CrossFit. I hope to meet and encourage your willingness to be active someday!

Kristy Ochoa

Level 1 CrossFit Trainer

After many busy years of being a mom and raising children, I lost time for myself. Life was all about the kids and the sports that they were involved in. As they got older, I decided to join a gym and soon lost my self motivation so I found a boot camp that gave me what I felt I was lacking. I loved the atmosphere, accountability and motivation. After about a year there, I started helping out by coaching some classes and I wanted to get certified as a trainer to take on coaching classes regularly. After discussing my goals and involvement, the owner thought that CrossFit would best fit my lifestyle, so I went to a box to check it out. I loved every aspect of it and knew this is where I would want my certification. I worked out and took in what I could there, to learn as much as I could, to prepare for my certification. Shortly after, I received my level 1,and was now coaching boot camp and was starting to miss CrossFit, so I looked for a box near me to be able to work out at. I searched online and found Turn 2 CrossFit, liked their story, and decided to try it out. The first day I went in, I was welcomed and felt at home.

The members are friendly, caring and respectful. The Coaches are very passionate about each individual and teaching them proper mechanics, mobility and modifications to be successful functionally. The motivation, comradery, competition and fun that Turn 2 has to offer is outstanding! My time here has taught me the importance of investing in myself for better health and to be beneficial for those around me.I am proud to be a part of this community and to call this home where I now coach and help others invest in themselves.

Ana Vizcaino

Level 1 CrossFit Trainer

I started CrossFit in 2013 with the intentions to distract myself from my husband’s deployment and the daily routine of being a mom.

Before finding my home at Turn2 I trained at several boxes under superb coaches and mentors whom provided me with the tools and motivation needed to continue my progression in physical fitness and attaining my goal in becoming a certified coach. Before then I was a stranger to weights, kettlebells, burpees, and WODs, as I was an avid runner and former United States Marine. I have endured the pain of 12 marathons, 2 half marathons and three Ragnar team events, and annoying sand fleas that only Parris Island Marines can relate. Between my journeys, I have learned many vital methods to foster nutrition: improve mobility, increase strength or as one of my favorite coaches says, “lift angry.” That phrase stimulated the turning point in strength training that inspired me to compete in three powerlifting competitions. Out of the three, one was a sanctioned USPA power lifting competition, resulting in a 1st place victory. I placed 2nd & 3rd in the other two local powerlifting competitions per my established weight class.

I enjoy the camaraderie endured by the shared discomfort and self accomplishment CrossFit brings. I no longer consider myself a stranger to the rigorous WOD’s or aggravating torn hands seen at Turn2. I believe in leading from the front and will push every athlete as hard as I push myself.

In following the footsteps of my many inspiring coaches, I aim to pass on the motivation and knowledge essential in boosting the physical fitness and health for all willing athletes.

Geovanna Pringle-Quintero

Level 1 CrossFit Trainer

I discovered CrossFit in 2014 in Okinawa, Japan. My husband is a Marine and we had received orders to live there at that time. It all started when a friend of mine raved about how CrossFt was awesome. My friend finally convinced me and I got the courage to try it out. One of the best decisions I have ever made and I have not looked back ever since.

After numerous moves due to the military, I have experienced great coaches in every box that I have called home. I am on my 3rd home, Turn2 CrossFit, where I was influenced to become a coach. My initial approach was to actually find out what CrossFit was all about. I enjoyed the challenge and getting to understand the way my body worked. I was impressed on how the athletes would come together and give it their all in the WOD. Now with being a coach, the shear excitement of helping the athletes is what drives me to become better. Just seeing their faces when they hit a PR or accomplish a gymnastic move for the first time gives me a sense of achievement.

Now with my newfound experience, I will share my knowledge for the better of the box and the athletes who seek to further their fitness goals.

Don’t limit your challenges, challenge your limits.

Genna Godfrey

Level 1 CrossFit Trainer

I have enjoyed and participated in sports all of my life. I played basketball in high school and was fortunate enough to continue playing at a Junior College at Palomar. Once my basketball season came to an end, I was eager to fill the void of team sports and healthy competition. I found CrossFit in 2011 after going to a open house at a local box. I tried my first workout soon after and was drawn to the community feel and encouragement.

Fast forward to 2015 where I opened a gym to help people become healthy, fit and change their lives like CrossFit did for me. During this time, I took many seminars learning the most I could about coaching and helping people reach their goals. These included a gymnastics seminar, a Crossfit Kids certificate, a movement and mobility seminar, and of course my Level 1 Certificate.

Becoming a coach and programming the workouts here at Turn 2 CrossFit has been such a great opportunity and I am so grateful. The community and environment here at Turn 2 is friendly and motivating. The coaches are one of a kind! They each care deeply about making sure that all members are pushing themselves and learning the fundamental movements. I feel so blessed that I get to be a part of a community focused on making people into the best version of themselves both physically and mentally.

“The magic is in the movement, the art is in the programming, the science is in the explanation & the fun is in the community” – Coach Glassman

Stephen Zeeb

Level 1 CrossFit Trainer

I am a military brat that grew up on Air Force bases moving every 3-4 years, attended 3 different High Schools and similarly at my third CrossFit box now. I graduated from UC Irvine before pursing a M.B.A from the American Military University. Now I’m a General Manager in a restaurant in Temecula and spend my professional downtime on leadership-based programs, organizational development, and strategic planning for the company.

The military theme hasn’t left for me though: my wife would tell you that the one “what-if” I hold on to, would be joining the military. I believe CrossFit has helped me come to terms with that void. The combination of Hero WOD’s mixed in with having a Coach like Jake: a Military Tribute.

I am the type of athlete that can pick up anything, extremely fast, and be average or better: but never the best at one thing specifically. That’s why I realized that CrossFit also filled another void: Play.

My passion to coach stems from one specific reason why I love CrossFit though: the Grind.

The Grind for me: spoke loudly when we found out my wife had Thyroid Cancer while we were pregnant with our son- I needed the grind to stay strong mentally.

The Grind in others: I’ll be the last one to sign up for a competition, but the first one in your corner when you are training in preparation for yours. Those moments are more rewarding to me than platforms.

I had a friend that summarized my leadership philosophy when it comes to coaching: Motivation is BS- it will always run out. Be dedicated and have discipline.

Adam Nelson

Level 1 CrossFit Trainer

Growing up in Wyoming where there was nothing to do except wrestle tumbleweeds. One of the few alternatives to boredom was to keep busy by playing sports. Soccer, Baseball, Football, Volleyball, Track you name it I played it, except Basketball (ever seen a 6’3” terrible basketball player? Look no further) Soccer was my primary sport. Playing soccer throughout my childhood I played competitive from age 11 though high school, was selected to the State of Wyoming ODP (Olympic Developmental Program) team several time and was fortunate enough to play a little in college. All those years of sports left a big hole in my life post college, I turned to the gym to fill that void. I would spend the next 6 years, pure meat head, globo gym training. Finally after years of family and friends telling me to look into Crossfit, I was convinced to drink the Kool-aid and to come check out Turn2Crossfit, I instantly felt at home with the coaches and the members. The workouts and the skills were ever changing and challenging.

I love all things CrossFit, our community first and foremost, the camaraderie, the competitive nature, the infinite scalability and the ever evolving landscape that is CrossFit.

“The burden of never trying is heavier than the barbell will ever be.”

Being able to help/coach someone to achieve something they didn’t know they could do is amazing, couldn’t think of a better reward.
