Ken Urban - Coach

I am a husband to my beautiful wife Lacey, and a proud father of 4 wild and adventurous children who constantly keep me on my toes. I do not have a strong athletic background other than some triathlons and running events that I have participated in. However, when I discovered Crossfit it changed how I viewed health, fitness, and nutrition. In 2013 while on deployment, attached to Seal Team 5, I discovered this thing called Crossfit and was immediately hooked.

I have been with Crossfit Collective since January 2017 and I feel blessed to be a part of such an amazing group of people. I have traveled all over the world and have visited many Crossfit gyms and I have not found anything like CFC. The community is strong and the coaching staff cares deeply about the overall health of it’s membership. I love the people here and strive every day to meet the needs of everyone who walks in the doors.

He is a firm believer that a pursuit of a healthy life in the gym carries over to having a better life overall.

Mitchell found CrossFit during his college years and has been hooked ever since. He believes CrossFit is enjoyable and humbling because it is constantly varied and based on our relative fitness & skill levels; the daily challenge to be better than yesterday attracted him and fulfilled his desire to push himself outside his comfort zone in order to improve, both mentally and physically. He strives to instill a stronger and positive mindset in everyone he interacts with daily.

He possess a CrossFit Level 1 certification, but his fitness experience and intelligence gained over the years of being a coach, educator, trainer, and athlete go beyond his credentials.

Eric Roaring - Coach

I started my freshmen year of high school at 260lbs., after lots of struggles and finding wrestling, I finished my senior year in the 160lb weight class. Wrestling was one of the most intense workouts I had ever experienced and was my first look at what fitness could do for the quality of someone's life.

I had spent many years in a traditional gym and ran a few marathons before finding CrossFit in 2014, I thought I was in pretty good shape, I was wrong. Even though I was one of the last finishers of the WOD on my first day, I was hooked. The friends that you make the instant you walk into the box are like none other, the hard work we put in really brings us together.

During the day I work at an office, in the evening I am spending my time with my wife and dogs working on our business, in between those time, I am doing CrossFit. This sport continually improves the quality of my life and I am excited to be coaching something I am so passionate about.

Jeff Haas - Coach

Playing sports was a cornerstone of my childhood but it did not carry over into college. This is where I began to discover gym culture primarily through bodybuilding style workouts. In 2013, I had my first introduction to CrossFit by means of "Nancy" and was instantly drawn not just to the competitive nature of the class but most importantly, the community.

My full time career has moved me to many different parts of the country since then and provided me with opportunities to learn from high level performers. In this journey I discovered a passion for Olympic Weightlifting. I am fortunate to have been surrounded by coaches and mentors with varying experiences from working with Olympic hopefuls to living at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado.

My passion for weightlifting runs deep and am always looking to improve my own knowledge. I am a true believer that moving well with a barbell is essential to growth in CrossFit, whether you're at the gym for a good workout or competing in the sport of fitness.
