Alex and Katie Everywhere!!



CrossFit The Dalles and CrossFit Mt. Adams Athletes !!
We wanted to give a little insight on what to expect here in the coming days! As you all know, Coaches Chip and Katie will be leaving CFTD. We enjoyed having them while we did, and they will be missed.  Alex and I (Katie) have worked out an awesome schedule to keep all classes as is, and open possibilities of offering new class times in the future for both CrossFit The Dalles and CrossFit Mt. Adams!
What to expect:
As of September, Alex and I will switch our evening schedules. I will be at CFTD in the AM and CFMA in the PM. Alex will be at CFTD for PM.  Coach Justine Ziegler will be taking on CFMA 7am until I am able to return to take that class back on. Quick thanks to Coach Justine for taking on the 7am!! It will be very hard for me to not be in The Dalles in the evening with my regular crew, but Alex is an amazing Coach and I know we will switch off at times so I can see you guys, and vice versa for him and the Mt. Adams crew. I am excited to train with peeps I normally don’t see, that’s huge. So CFTD and CFMA get ready!    
A little Background:
A couple new faces!  Julie VanDeHey and Jeremiah Schulze.  Most of you have met them via WODS at either BOX, but I want to provide a little background just in case you haven’t had the pleasure of meeting them! Jeremiah is actively Coach Shadowing CFTD for AM and PM classes.  Jeremiah is a very great Coach and I am super excited to have him join the Coaches Crew. He has been training personal training, group classes, ect. for quite some time. He ran into the CrossFit Open online, decided to try a WOD, and drank the CrossFit KoolAide!! He has recently moved to The Dalles from McMinnville, Or. He will be getting married to his fiancĂ© here VERY soon, so congrats. (:
Julie VanDeHey will be taking on CrossFit Kids at CFTD.  Julie begins her first year at St. Mary's Academy in The Dalles. She has been teaching in Glide, Oregon for the past eight years.  She is originally from Hood River. Julie has a Bachelors of Science from the University of Oregon and a Masters of Education from the University of Oregon.  She is K-8 Certified with multiple Middle School Endorsements.  She has also coached at the middle school, junior varsity and varsity levels in a 3A school. Julie and her husband Zach have three children; Clementine, age 5, Phinneaus, age 3 and August, age 1.
Our Goal:
Alex and I have a priority to keep our affiliates in access of top notch trainers and provide programming that breeds success. Now, if you have ANY questions, just ask! You guys all rock and are our second family. Email Alex or I if you have anything I didn’t touch on, or things you are curious about. You guys make our BOX awesome. And it’s AWESOME! If you get a chance, visit CFMA or CFTD to check it out! We would love to see you train at the box you haven’t been to before and meet the rest of our peeps. (:
Cheers,
Katie Gunkel

PS: Big Thanks to all Coaches. You guys are all awesome and turn WOD time into PLAY time. Love you guys. (:
