Mathies Long is a CF-L1 certified coach who has a passion for coaching. A passion that shows not only inside the Crossfit gym but in his personal life as well where he works as a High School Teacher and Wrestling coach for Frisco ISD. As a kid, Mathies always knew that he wanted to be around sports in some shape or form, whether it was playing, athletic training, or coaching.
Coaching has allowed him to make an impact on the lives of all those that he has coached whether it be via Crossfit, wrestling, or in the classroom. To him coaching is more than just watching people hit PR’s or teaching kids how to do a double-leg takedown, but it’s about building those relationships with those individuals. One quote that has stuck with him since he was started coaching is by President Theodore Roosevelt who said “People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.”Mathies was introduced to Crossfit by a friend, not too long after he moved back home from college. After walking on and playing football collegiately at Oklahoma State (Go Pokes!), Mathies needed something to fill that competitive void, and lifting on his own at the gym wasn’t working. Crossfit not only filled that void but has opened so many doors for him and introduced him to a wide variety of people from all aspects/backgrounds of life. Crossfit has allowed Mathies to push himself to see what his body is truly capable of, but it was also how he met his beautiful wife, Tiffany. To him, Crossfit is not just fitness, but it is a community. A community that no matter what people’s individual’s goals they are all there for the same reason, to get better at their fitness and to push those around them to be better. Mathies is always trying to improve his knowledge of movements, nutrition, and everything in between to make himself a better coach not only for himself but for his athletes as well. Just like with his fitness, he strives to be the best coach possible as he can be.

Janessa Brindza was born and raised in Port Angeles, Washington and grew up playing competitive softball and soccer. She went on to play softball at the University of Missouri graduating in 2006 with a business degree. Her and her husband (Will) missed the culture and community of playing team sports, and it was their love of being challenged and part of a team that drew them to CrossFit in 2010. It was their passion to help educate and inspire athletes both young and old to achieve things they might never have thought attainable that pushed them to open CrossFit Wilsonville, in Wilsonville, Oregon in 2012. Having the privilege to serve as a positive influence that might lead to improving someone’s health is incredibly satisfying. Their family is 100% involved in the CrossFit culture and when they are not in the gym you will find them outside on the golf course or throwing some type of ball around.
