Josh West

Co-Owner, Head Coach

Josh is an owner and head coach at CrossFit Freeflow. A former Marine, he knows a thing or two about intense training and discipline. He began his coaching career by being in the right place at the right time. "I was a promising CrossFit athlete whose skills didn’t go unnoticed. My coach asked if I would be willing to earn my Level 1 and train others at the gym. I agreed and it was the first step in my fitness career."

To date, Josh has gone on to earn a Level 2 certificate and specializes in movement diagnostics and deficiencies. He’s passionate about helping athletes change their bodies and minds. He wants you to unlock your potential, by letting go of your limitations. You’ll be surprised by what you can do!

Jimmy Summer

Co-Owner, Coach

Jimmy is a coach and gym manager who grew up playing basketball and baseball. In 1996, he joined the Army and turned it into his full-time career. He’s attended multiple schools that have elevated his fitness level and tested his mental toughness. "I actually started CrossFit while deployed in Afghanistan. I was tired of the same old push up, sit up, 5-mile run routine. So when my commander asked if I wanted to try something new, I jumped at the chance."

"Once I returned home, CrossFit was a huge outlet for me. I was going through some tough times and the gym community stood by me every step of the way. I never let my circumstances get the best of me. Eventually, I was approached about a coaching position because of positive attitude and ability to motivate others. I happily accepted and the rest is CrossFit history!"
