Bio Coming Soon!
Rachelle DeLeon: CF-L2, PN1
Rachelle walked into a CrossFit gym in 2012 and never looked back, fully submerging herself into the CrossFit methodology ever since! She lived & breathed functional movement at high intensity training by performing in local CF competitions, being a consistent member, thriving in the community of CrossFit for 7 years before pursuing her L1 to begin coaching. Now with almost 5 years of coaching experience, from various age ranges and fitness levels, she’s looking forward to honing in on her craft. Specializing in improving human movement to help people become better humans will always be her mission.
“It never gets old when I listen to members say they NEVER thought they could do something then end up achieving it -OR- when they aren’t having the best day and I get to see them leave the gym with a smile!”
Rachelle is married to John, who was enveloped with the lifestyle his wife had created through the CrossFit methodology. Currently training together at CFB. They have 3 children and 4 fur babies. Every day they are blessed to help & be apart of our fellow members journeys & CFB community.
Her certifications include: CrossFit Level-2, Precision Nutrition Level-1, Teaching Movement, Lesson Planning, Scaling Course, Spot the Flaw, CF-L1 (2019), Judges Course (‘19-’22-’23).
Justin Phillips: CF-L1
Justin began CrossFit in 2013 while in the U.S. Army and after an off and on relationship with it (due to Army assignments and requirements) he began focusing on CrossFit as his means of fitness and wellbeing after his last deployment in 2019. Since that time he has continued to fall in love with the methodology, ultimately leading him to pursue the Level 1 Certification in April 2021, just one month prior to his retirement from the U.S. Army after 20 years and 28 days on May 31, 2021.
Justin loves coaching and witnessing people get better both physically and mentally. He also enjoys watching the growth that can take place when someone believes in themselves and is surrounded by supportive people. CrossFit Burkburnett is the epicenter which allows him to take part and witness all three.
Justin has been married to his wife Eron since 2001 and has three children.
Nick Brits: CF-L1; Lvl 2 Fitness Instructor
Nick played competitive Rugby in England for 14 years but found CrossFit 4 years ago and the rest is history. He knew early on, after discovering CrossFit, that he wanted to get more involved and so he became a CrossFit Level 1 Coach and a Level 2 Fitness Instructor. His favourite thing about CrossFit is the scalability and the strong Community worldwide. He is now working towards his CrossFit Level 2 and USA Weightlifting Certification.His coaching style is to maintain standards and help each athlete to reach their own personal goals while have a good time doing it!
