What Is Crossfit?

CrossFit is constantly varied functional movements performed at high intensity. All CrossFit workouts are based on functional movements, and these movements reflect the best aspects of gymnastics, weightlifting, running, rowing and more. These are the core movements of life.

Overall, the aim of CrossFit is to forge a broad, general and inclusive fitness supported by measurable, observable and repeatable results. The program prepares trainees for any physical contingency—not only for the unknown but for the unknowable, too. Our specialty is not specializing.

While CrossFit challenges the world's fittest, the program is designed for universal scalability, making it the perfect application for any committed individual, regardless of experience. We scale load and intensity; we don’t change the program. The needs of Olympic athletes and our grandparents differ by degree, not kind. (Courtesy of CrossFit Inc.)

Aaron Brill Crossfit Coach

aaron brill

I 'found CrossFit' when I was assigned from patrol to the police academy as an instructor in 2009. I was the typical big arms/little legs cop. The Captain of the academy saw the arms and said, "You're a big guy. You're going to be in charge of fitness. Apparently we do this CrossFit thing so get certified." 

I coached everyone that walked into the academy for the next year, whether they wanted it or not, went to some more seminars then opened my own gym in 2010. I knew of, and respected, Scott Olson so in 2016 I joined Bladium CrossFit.

Michael Sevilla Coach

Michael Sevilla

A few years ago while practicing Krav Maga, Michael started to look for a way to cross condition and improve overall strength, stamina, and flexibility. Starting with MMA inspired workouts he added yoga, bootcamp cardio and body weight workouts to my overall routine. In late 2010 he attended his first CrossFit class. Even though he could barely breath after the 12 minute workout, he was hooked. Based on his love for all things CrossFit he decided to become a CrossFit coach and share that passion with others who want to transform their lives and improve their fitness.

Jessica Howard

Jessica, a Colorado native, wife, and stay at home mother of two, was looking for a new challenge beyond the same old workout videos in her basement.  In 2012, she walked into Bladium CrossFit, convinced it was not for her.  Despite her reluctance, she quickly became addicted to the day to day challenges, rapid body transformation, and amazing community.  In 2015 she took the Level 1 certification and started coaching.  She loves sharing her passion for the sport and helping others reach their fullest potential.  When not at the gym or chasing kids around, she enjoys skiing, golfing, and hiking.

JASON FREEMAN

In 2016 at age 26, Jason weighed 65 more pounds. Motivated for change, he explored exercise as a healthier way to alleviate stress than eating pizza and drinking beer. Although he initially saw results, he struggled to find a program that didn’t get stale, and he struggled with low back and hip pain, which caused him to have long absences from the gym. Reaching his thirties, Jason believed that being somewhat over-weight, in pain, and being generally stressed-out was just part of getting older. Then, in 2013, Jason decided to take a friend’s advice and give this CrossFit thing a try. He was hesitant. He had pictured going to a gym where they just told him to throw a bunch of weight around and leaving on day one with debilitating back pain. To his surprise, he discovered a program that was welcoming to people of all fitness levels.

He considers himself in better shape now than at any point in his twenties. After discovering what a truly remarkable and life changing program CrossFit is, Jason knew he had to give back to the community. To pursue this goal, he obtained his Level 1 CrossFit certificate in 2016.

He is passionate about teaching CrossFit to others and showing what a great program and welcoming community there is here at Bladium. He also loves spending time with his wife and two-year-old son, snowboarding, and working to achieve his goal of climbing all of Colorado’s fourteen thousand foot peaks

Jackie.jpg

jackie miller

In 2013 when she had her son, Jackie started to go from chubby to “fat”. She and her husband went to Maui at the end of 2014 for New Year’s, and she couldn’t buckle the seat belt on the plane – getting bruises on her thighs from where the seat dug in. She weighed 310 lbs. After getting back, she evaluated what was important - being be able to play with Rainer, and walk up stairs without feeling like dying. Changes needed to be made: starting with changing her diet a little, and then let a friend talk me into trying CrossFit here at Bladium. She couldn’t do a full squat, let alone even knew what a burpee was and she’d never even touched a barbell before. Jackie fell in love with CrossFit, the community, the intensity, and the empowerment. CrossFit, coupled with solid nutrition, made it possible for Jackie to lose 120 lbs.

Soon she realized that she needed to coach: to give back to the community that had given her so much, and to pass on the knowledge that fitness can be fun, nutrition doesn’t have to be a “diet”, and that your mindset is where everything begins. She’s excited to be coaching at Bladium, where it all started for her! Jackie no longer tries to blend in, but loudly and unapologetically his herself, and inspires others to do the same. She truly believes that fitness can help strengthen the mind, body, and soul, and is passionate about helping teenagers and adults unleash a great untapped power they hold inside themselves.

Chandelle.jpg

Chandelle Stone

My love for health and fitness started over the course of my military career. While serving overseas, I first experienced CrossFit on Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan. It was a whole different level of challenge for the body and mind that I never before experienced, and I was instantly hooked. Over the course of my military career I sustained a couple of minor injuries that have turned into the best gifts allowing me to develop greater techniques for recovery, mobility, and overall functionality. It is now my passion to teach others how to live healthy, happy, and fit lives. Outside of coaching I am a full-time student at CU Boulder studying physiology. My plan is to continue my education by applying for medical school in the next couple of years- ultimately I’d love to go on to complete a Phd and MD in neurology. 

I enjoy learning to the max and tell everyone I’m the coolest nerd you’ll ever meet. I listen to lots of Podcasts to discover esoteric and controversial topics that challenge and expand my own beliefs and consciousness.

I’m an open book, please ask me anything! Look forward to helping everyone on their fitness journey!
