The Team

Berek Bryan

Started CrossFit due to boredom at the gym and lack of results. After starting CrossFit the results came and the boredom left. Helping others is another huge part that is fun and rewarding, the look when someone has that light bulb moment is wonderful.

Outside of the gym I enjoy spending time with my wife (Krista), daughter (Eleanor) and puppy (Ada). I also enjoy turn based RTS games (Total War: Warhammer), reading (sci-fi, fantasy, fitness), cooking, whiskey and cocktails.

I would love to take credit and say that I sought out CrossFit all by myself because I knew it would be a perfect fit for me, but I would be lying. I started CrossFit in 2012 when Equity officially opened its doors. I didn’t know it then, but this was the best thing that ever happened to me.

While I have been an athlete my entire life, CrossFit was something completely new to me and I had a major fear of sucking at it. I had just finished up my college soccer career, something I was fortunate to find many successes in. I was a two time All American, and leading goal scorer at Davis & Elkins College. I was coming off of what I thought was the peak of my athletic abilities. I owe many thanks to Berek, Krista, and the CrossFit community at Equity for filling that void that soccer left. Intimidated me, going from a competitive collegiate athlete to a newb and amateur CrossFitter has now turned into me being the fittest and happiest version of myself. I love everything about CrossFit and the positive changes and people it has brought to my life.

While CrossFit obviously takes up the majority of my time (and I wouldn’t have it any other way), I also love spending time with my family, friends, and my fur baby Mya. When I am not in the gym, you can likely find me enjoying a good cocktail, doing something outdoors, or enjoying a lazy Sunday watching football.

After first starting CrossFit in our garage, and then slowly joining a gym, the progress I was able to see with learning new movements and slowly getting stronger gave me the motivation to continue learning and grasping for more. I have been doing CrossFit for over 5 years now, and I can still see changes and growth. There are always new things to learn and to get better at every day; not just physical but mental challenges as well. Gymnastics and Olympic Lifting are my favorite things to do that require skill and technique which can always be improved. Coaching allows me to teach others how to move with a purpose and gives me the opportunity to watch them grow and progress each and every day.
Outside of the gym, I enjoy going on adventures with my husband (Berek) and dog (Ada). Spending time with friends having a nice cocktail, listening to music and eating some delicious food. I like to craft/sew/quilt on occasion and love baking the not so healthy desserts.

I started CrossFit after getting a noise complaint from my downstairs neighbor in the apartment complex I moved to right after school. I suppose there is no quiet way to do T25 without sounding like you are crashing through to the floor below. I didn’t want to go back to a traditional gym and that is when I found CrossFit Equity. I have always been an active individual and played soccer in college. This developed a competitive drive in myself and has always motivated me to continue to get better. After coming to CrossFit Equity, I was able to get back that competitiveness I was missing. Not to mention, I am able to compete alongside some of my best friends. The community at Equity pushes themselves and each other every single day to be the best they can be. Surrounding yourself by individuals with the same competitive nature is the best way to achieve results.

Outside of the gym I enjoy spending time playing sports, hanging with friends and eating. If there are drinks, sports and endless amounts of food, I’m there! I’m a sucker for a good craft beer and love exploring new beers. I also enjoy relaxing and spending time at the beach.

I started CrossFit in 2017 after needing a change in my life both physically and mentally. I am incredibly thankful for Equity and the community I have grown to love since joining the gym!

Even though I had been an athlete for most of my life, I played soccer in college and have also participated in competitive horseback riding on and off, working out in a gym was a surprisingly foreign concept to me. Walking into CrossFit Equity for the first time was absolutely terrifying. Luckily it only took a short time for me to notice the physical changes I so craved but I also found myself becoming more and more confident in my abilities in the gym and also life in general outside of the gym. The members at CrossFit Equity have turned into my best friends and I love everything about this gym that has had such a huge positive impact on my life!

Outside of the gym I love spending time with my family, friends, and my dog! I love checking out local breweries and trying craft beers and doing just about anything outdoors!

I never knew what CrossFit actually was until I attended a competition about 4 years ago as a spectator. I was equally intimidated and fascinated. I later reluctantly agreed to give it a try. I had never been the type of person someone would call "athletic". It only took a few classes to become obsessed. The more I did it, the fitter I got. The more I learned, the more I wanted to learn.

I always knew I wanted to help others so I pursued a degree in Psychology. But I found that CrossFit has improved my life and the lives of so many people I know in numerous ways that are not just limited to fitness. So I decided to learn how to help others using CrossFit and through the CrossFit community.

When I'm not in the gym I enjoy hanging with my husband Ryan and our friends. We like to do everything from wining and dining to hiking, snow boarding, biking, camping, and fires in the backyard with our pups Maggie and Dexter (and all of their dog friends).
