Hey Everyone! I’m very pleased to announced that we have found a new Head Trainer to take over Crossfit Sunnyvale. His name is Evan Mathis and he comes from Georgia. He was the Crossfit Director for Crossfit AGX and both Stephanie and I have had the opportunity to talk to him a number of times now and we think he will be an excellent fit for Crossfit Sunnyvale. He arrives this week and will begin training as of tomorrow Monday night! He is very passionate about Crossfit and helping people achieve their goals. Evan will take over the Monday/Wednesday 6/7pm evening classes as well as all Head Trainer duties. I hope you can all give him a warm welcome when you see him in class.

On a quick side note, this may be one of my last blog posts (Coach Devin), so I wanted to take one last moment to say goodbye just in case. I hope everyone keeps hittin’ it hard in the gym and trains safe and smart. If you are ever near Crossfit Los Gatos or Crossfit San Jose stop in and say hi! Have a great Sunday!
