Coach, Sports Massage Therapist




1 hour session: $100



Shane has been CrossFitting since 2005 and coaching since 2008. Once a Mechanical Engineer, CrossFit gave him health, confidence, and a level of fitness he had never been able to achieve before, and it wasn’t long before he decided that sharing that experience with others was his new passion in life. Shane moved to Boulder in 2010 to coach at Roots.

In 2015 Shane gained first-hand experience of the resiliency that a solid foundation of health and fitness provides when, while riding his motorcycle, he was struck by a truck that ran a red light. It was CrossFit that prepared his mind and body for the long fight to recover and it was CrossFit that once again pulled him back to a fully functioning athlete. Five months later he was back in classes doing workouts alongside his peers. He wrote an article for the CrossFit Journal about his experience HERE.

He has since taken a strong passion for gymnastics and has led many successful adult gymnastics clinics at Roots for athletes of all strength and skill levels. Shane is a Head Coach at Roots, writes Roots’ programming with Nicole, contributes to the blog, does personal training, and helps run special events. When not in the gym you can find him in the nearest river fly-fishing or hiking over mountains with his wife. He is a believer that we should all move because we can and because it’s part of being human and a well-lived life!
