Coach

Brandi discovered her love for Crossfit in 2010. Being a former high school athlete and an all around daredevil, Brandi enjoyed the exciting and competitive atmosphere that Fury had to offer.

After training at Fury for a few years, Brandi received her Level 1 Certification in 2013 and began coaching. She is always willing to help members out; she may even see your potential before you do, so don’t be surprised when pushes you to put more weight on the bar or fight for one more rep. Aside from coaching at Fury, Brandi participates in local competitions and races. Brandi is very family oriented and loves being active with her family and friends. She and her family have even coerced a group of their friends into taking on such challenges as hiking 26 miles in one day and running a 5k every Sunday for “fun”! Through her encouraging words, crazy dance moves and hilarious stories, Brandi truly embodies the heart of the community at Crossift Fury.

Lacey Briones
Yoga Coach

Lacey BrionesMy name is Lacey and Yoga found me 8 years ago. I am a type-A personality with 4 children, that’s right, 4 girls! I was between babies and decided to try a class after my group fitness strength class because I wanted a good “stretch”. Well, since that very first class, I have never been the same. Yoga found me and ruined my life as I knew it. I continued to explore Yoga and alternate my strength training with Yoga classes. I discovered that Yoga by itself was not just great exercise but also mental therapy and grounding for the soul. I also discovered that Yoga paired with other types of exercise helped me reach my fitness goals but, with grace, gratitude and acceptance. I found myself feeling more connected to the world, less reactive to the rollercoaster of daily life and more present. I decided that Yoga was calling me. I felt the need to practice Yoga and share with others, so I went through Yoga Teacher Training at Life Power Yoga. I have experience in teaching various forms of Yoga; Vinyassa, Ashtanga, Yin, Meditation, Family Yoga, Kids Yoga and Prenatal Yoga. Because I am a fitness junkie, I love helping people fuse Yoga into their health and wellness plans. I look forward to sharing the art of Yoga and showing you how to take it home with you. Remember, Yoga is for everyone! So, come Yoga with me and bend so you don’t break. Blessings and Namaste.

He discovered CrossFit in 2013 while completing his Bachelor’s degree in Communication from San Diego State University. Having played competitive sports his whole life, when Kevin graduated from high school and his basketball career ended, he found that he lacked that competitive outlet he grew to love and need! He says: “CrossFit was the first workout program I found that allowed me to compete against myself and others, while also leaving me nearly debilitated after each workout.”

Kevin is currently working at the Fury Front Desk but is shadowing classes, getting his CF Level 1 Cert, and plans to eventually coach. He is also currently taking prerequisites for a masters program in Sports Conditioning & Performance, and will be pursuing the Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist certification.

She recalls being very hesitant to try such a competitive form of fitness. Without any previous athletic background the one thing she had to bring to the table was her love of running and interest in health and nutrition. One crossfit class was all it took and she’s been here at Fury every day since. With a growing love for fitness, crossfit, and Fury, Tracy earned her Level One Crossfit Certification in June of 2013, and joined the team of coaches shortly thereafter. Tracy has since received her Level Two CrossFit Certification in 2015. Tracy has competed in a few different crossfit competitions locally and enjoys helping others reach their fitness goals. Outside of Fury she received her Bachelors in the Science of Nursing from the University of Cincinnati in 2003 and is currently in graduate school at University of Cincinnati to be a Certified Nurse Midwife.
