Our mission at the Iron Den is make everyone feel at home when they walk through the door. We want to give you the confidence that you deserve. To set goals and then help each person who walks through the door, accomplish those goals.
I am the wife to an amazing man and a mother to 2 precious kids. I love to be defined as a wife and mother. As a wife and mom, I want to be my very best in every way. I want to be able to help with horses, move hay, and build fence. I want to run and chase my kids and in the future play sports with them. I feel like CrossFit is one way I can be the best wife and mother. It helps me to be stronger, have more endurance and be more confident to be able to do things I never thought I could. I want to be my husband's helper in teaching our kids the importance of physical health and how it rolls into emotional health as well. CrossFit has changed my world and I am excited to share this amazing thing and help change other peoples' lives.
I have a Bachelor of Arts in Biblical Studies with an emphasis in Missions. I went to Career Institutes of Arlington and I got my LVN. I worked in Hospice and then moved to Acute Rehabilitation at Virginia Beach General Hospital. Once I had my first child, we decided that I would stay home and so now I am a stay at home mom and I wouldn't trade it for the world.

Ryan came to CrossFit looking to fulfill the competitive drive he had in his days of athletics. "I first found CrossFit looking for something to push me physically and mentally. I was tired of the mundane gym experience. As I've come to understand CrossFit in more depths, I'm realizing this is a journey not a destination. It's motivating to not only see yourself improve but also see your fellow CrossFitters improve. Seeing joy in a members face when they hit a new PR makes it exciting to come coach every day. Besides CrossFit Ryan is a teacher and head basketball coach at Enid High School.
