With that in mind, we'd like you to get to know our team a little bit better - keep reading to learn more about Coach Leon!

Leon Uptegrove - Head Coach


We are very excited to bring Leon on as a full-time member of the CrossFit Aevitas coaching team this year! Leon has been involved in CrossFit for 5 years, both as an athlete and coach. He's a CrossFit Level-1 Trainier and has attended the CrossFit Olympic Lifting, CrossFit Gymnastics, and CrossFit Kids Certification courses as well.

We asked Leon to tell us a little bit about himself so that you can get to know him better, and here's what he had to say:

Favorite WOD: any 21-15-9

Least favorite WOD: I don't really dislike any WOD’s but open WOD’s usually roast my tatters as they should.

Favorite cheat food: A big fat burger loaded up with some fries

Overall goal as a coach: I really just want to push people to a level they didn't know they had in them. To help find the athlete inside themselves and to stay feeling young and healthy as long as possible.

Interests and Hobbies (outside of CrossFit): Food and Cooking, Carpentry, Cars, Motorcycles… basically all dude things.

Welcome to the team, Leon!
