SETH SCHUBERT
Coach - (CF-L1)

Graduated from The University of Northern Colorado in the May of 2005 with a Double Major in Speech Communication and Journalism with an Emphasis in PR/Advertising.

I have Over 9 years in the Fitness Industry I first started to work at LA Fitness as an Operations Manager for two years in Bellevue, and then as an General Manager for their North Seattle location for another 4 years. During that time I helped them grow as they expanded fast opening more the 21 locations while I was with them.

Started doing CrossFit about 3 years ago received my Level -1 CrossFit Certification 2 years ago and never looked back. To me building a better athlete versus building a bigger body just makes sense in what I was looking to get out of my training program.

Growing up playing basketball and football for my high school I started Olympic Weight lifting at the very young age of 14, but like so many other CrossFit athletes was exposed of my many weaknesses as I was learning all the movements especially the gymnastics as it was all very new. Just LIke me all our athletes will constantly grow and become more proficient at all of the movements of course there is always room for improvement.

For me the best part of starting this CrossFit Gym has been building the CrossFIt community here in North Seattle. I think that has been the biggest difference from moving from the big box with LA FItness to where your clients were just a dollar sign and then now coaching our athletes they are not only your client but your friend has you see them conquer their goals. Seeing each one of our members reach their athletic potential is the best part of my day.

Let us help you reach your potential 3...2...1 GO!

I first heard about Crossfit in 2010 from an ex-girlfriend, at first I was a hater, I was currently working as a Personal Trainer at L.A.Fitness for the last 5 years and doing functional training with my clients. I loved my job but one thing, it was just to expensive for most people to get the help that they truly needed, seeing people walk in with all the motivation in the world only to be told that I couldn't help them because of financial limitations was just frustrating. Fitness is a lifestyle and first you have to learn what to do all the fancy machines and equipment at the big box gyms don't help if you don't know how to use them or how to push yourself to achieve results. Crossfit is different we don't have you work on machines you are the machine and you are an impressive one at that.

It has been two years since we opened Crossfit North Seattle and in that time Seth and I have been lucky enough to see SO many goals achieved from a first pull-up to running a 5k for the first time. Crossfit varies so much that at first it is humbling experience, but after you drop your ego and just have fun with it results come from every direction. Olympic Lifting, Gymnastics, Power Lifting, Kettle bells, Rowing, and Running the improvements just keep coming and with that motivation/attitude to accept that average is just not gonna cut anymore follows, I couldn't be happier!

So if you're not seeing the results you want and can't afford a full time trainer come in and give us a try. We built ourselves a little community of people that have one major thing in common. They are not afraid of hard work. The class is set up like a practice, we meet warm up go over the movements and 3,2,1 go we are fierce! everyone going at the same time scaled to everyone's personal needs. All the respect in the world follows!

Little bit about myself, I have always been involved in sports from an early age I did Gymnastics to being taught Tap and Jazz with my Mother to early Football, Baseball, Wrestling, Water Skiing, Snow Skiing, Mountain Biking, and Rock Climbing. I've been working with people for Close two 15 years and still get just excited as they do when I see people achieve something for the first time. I love my Career and wouldn't change a thing.

Hope to see you sweating soon!
Coach Dan Leinonen
