Coaches

Jeff Tait

Owner, Coach

My wife and I have two girls, Avery and Lauren, whom you’ll see a lot of here at HSC.  Wanting my daughters to be surrounded by positive influences was a major factor in my decision to pursue CF HSC.

Backing up a bit, I haven’t always valued a healthy lifestyle.  I was active in wrestling through high school and then pretty much ate and drank whatever I wanted for the next 12 years or so. By my mid 20’s, I had gained 75lbs.  I was lazy, I made excuses, and I couldn’t stick to an exercise routine for more than a few days.   I finally realized that I could no longer live this way.  I spent some time in various gyms, biked and ran, but when I found CrossFit, everything changed.  Fitness was fun again.  It kept me coming back.  I started to prioritize my fitness and took accountability in my nutrition.  The community of people was amazing and we have some of the best people you’ll ever meet here at HSC.  Now in my 30’s I’m fitter than most 20 year olds.  We refer to that era of my life as “Old Jeff”, and I can tell ya, he ain’t coming back!

I have a job I love in the medical device industry that has taken me to around 35 CrossFit gyms across the country.  You could say HSC has parts of what I love best of many of those places.

Why I coach

I do this because I love to help others improve their quality of life.  To see people grow fitter, stronger, and confident is pretty friggen cool to me.

Tim Maluski

My name is Tim Maluski:

When I am not coaching Crossfit, I am an Insurance Agent for American Family Insurance, father to Lucas and Mac and husband to Katie.I have always enjoyed coaching and have coached several youth sports over the years. I have been involved in Crossfit for 2 years and became a Level 1 Crossfit Trainer in Januaryof 2014. Coaching brings me joy when I watch people develop and reach milestones they didn't think were attainable, I love every minute of it. I think of myself as a positive and outgoing person, although I have been known to have a sense of humor too! The things I love most in life are my relationship with God, my family and friends.My favorite workout is Helen.

Jake Evans

I'm Jake, the endurance coach here at HSC. This is my story.

I first found crossfit while reading an article in triathlon magazine. It talked about a new kind of endurance athlete, one that was not only fast and efficient but strong and durable. I immediately drank the cool-aid.  I logged on tocrossfitendurance.com and chose a workout I could do in my basement. Up until that point I had been riding my bike a few hundred miles a week, running about 65-70 and swimming twice, I thought I was in pretty good shape. The basic crossfit workout destroyed me.  I began to do more crossfit than cardio, went to a seminar and received my level 1 in crossfit endurance and my racing results were astounding. I was pr'ing mile times and staying injury free.  I trained like this, out of my basement for two years, toward the end of this time I was losing motivation and drive, this is when I found crossfit HSC.  I walked in and immediately felt like I belonged. The people that make up HSC have brought the best out of me and I love coaching there. I love watching someone improve there running technique, or squat. I love all things crossfit and mobility.

HSC has made me a better athlete all around, and coaching has a lot to do with that. I went from being a slight triathlete at 155 pounds (two years ago) to being a durable all around athlete now at 185. So come check us out, the combination of coaches and members can help you obtain any fitness goal.

Eric Chapman

Madi Cook 

My Name is Madi Cook and I am going to be a college freshman in the fall. I started CrossFit almost a year and a half ago and time has flown by! Before CrossFit I tried a handful of high school sports, but I never really enjoyed going to practices every day and wasn’t very committed. After my aunt Tracy introduced me to CrossFit I have been hooked and more driven than ever! I feel so lucky to have met some of my closest friends, as well as grow as both an athlete and now a coach. I plan to do something with health/fitness with my major in college as well as my professional life afterwards. I also love to compete in CrossFit competitions as often as possible, and I am very excited to see where that takes me in my future. When I am not doing CrossFit I like to spend time with my two younger brothers, and hang out with my friends from school. It is amazing how much I have changed in just over a year and I can only imagine how much different I will be this time next year. I love the process :)

Why I coach: I started coaching because I wanted to be able to help people change their lives as much as Jeff, Eric, and Tim helped me when I first started.The joy it brings to watch people push limits they didn’t even know they had is an incredible thing.

My favorite workout: Grace
