COACHES

  • Michael Gordon

    I grew up in Mesa, AZ and played football growing up. I am pretty sure that every single bone in my body is competitive. I think it is important to find an avenue that helps to push you to be the best you and Crossfit was just that for me. Crossfit has added so much to my life but not just on a fitness level. The community and sense of camaraderie has been a pleasant surprise. Everyone, regardless of the experience or fitness level is supportive and encouraging of each other. More importantly, to be able to surround yourself with like-minded people just makes sense.

    My better half, Angela, is very much a part of the business and helps facilitate behind the scenes logistics of our business. She and I have 6 kids between the two of us and we do our best to be role models to our children. We are very fortunate to be able to show them an active lifestyle is a great way to live and push yourself.

    Owning Crossfit LT has been one of the most rewarding decisions I have ever made. To be able to coach the members, encourage them and see how much dedication and hard work pays off is why I get up every day. I do my best to create a positive environment for our members and our coaches. At the end of the day, if I help one person feel better and become healthier than that is all I can ask for.

  • Erich Reinheimer

    Growing up in Maine I would say I was athletic but not overly fit playing football and basketball in high school n doing just enough in the off-season to make the team n play decent. After high school I missed the team and competition feel team sports give you. I disliked basic gyms and kinda became a runner to stay in shape n not much else. In 2005 I moved to AZ and got a job in corrections. Although I could usually hold my own in there I had some close calls n needed to put on some more muscle. My wife introduced my to CrossFit Leiftime in 2009 just after they moved to the current location and I was hooked after my 1st week. Been lucky enough to coach at LT from 2012 to 2015 when I moved back to Maine for two years. Coached in Maine at Back Cove CrossFit which helped me grow as a coach n person greatly. Moved back in February of 2018. Glad to be back where I started. Excited to help, learn and be apart of this awesome community again!

  • Kat Calaway

    In 2013 I found my love of Crossfit, I had joined Captain Crossfit in Prescott with my then husband in hopes of finding a way we could enjoy working out together. My now ex-husband and I had both gained 60 plus pounds while at the Bethesda military hospital, he had been recovering from wounds he had received in Afghanistan while on patrol with his unit. Like a frog put in warm water on the stove with the heat slowly rising, I had not noticed the weight creep onto me.

    In 2011 we moved to Prescott Arizona, and in 2012 I was diagnosed as having become a type 2 Diabetic. When the YMCA wasn’t cutting it for keeping my ex motivated to workout, he suggested we try out Crossfit. I was very leery of all the lifting, but wanted him to workout with me so I went and did the free trial. Needless to say I have been hooked on Crossfit ever since. Due to Crossfit and diet I have lost 60 pounds, worked my way out of being a Diabetic, I have kept the weight off and absolutely love lifting. I have my Crossfit L1 and my Crossfit Scaled instructor certification. I am also a I certified myo-fascial “Stretch to Win” stretch therapist. I am a certified EMT and was a Deputy for Yavapai County.

  • Mike Monge

    Howdy, everyone! I’ve been a bit of nomad for the past few years of my life. I’ve moved around between Arizona and California a good amount the past few years. I grew up in Prescott Valley, Az, and as a kid, my friends and I got into anything and everything we possibly could in a small town. We were constantly outside exploring every nook and cranny of our town. I played soccer in a youth league and later played in high school as well. I also ran track, but later had to stop soccer and track due to getting foot surgery my junior year, which led me to become a swimmer my senior year.

    After high school, my athletics took a halt while I was studying music in college. I stayed in relatively good shape but didn’t like that I felt like I had lost my athletic edge. I found CrossFit as a class offered by the college. Once the class started I was hooked! It felt incredible to feel like a part of a team again and have a coach. The workouts were challenging and I loved the opportunities to PR and aim for the Rx side of WODS. I had to put in a ton of work as I’ve never been the biggest athlete and hadn’t ever touched a barbell before CrossFit.

    After a few adventures in a forest, I got my CF-L1 and started interning at Captain CrossFit. Sometime later I moved to Cottonwood, Az on a hunch and opened up my own CrossFit gym. CrossFit Glide was such an amazing adventure! I got to spend every day with amazing clients and friends living out a dream of getting to coach. After two years I decided to part ways with the gym take a few more adventures in the forest and on the road learning how to use a camera and now I’m back into the CrossFit scene. You can find me behind the camera or under a barbell. I look forward to meeting you!
