Steve Goffman

HEAD COACH,
CrossFit Level 2 Trainer, CrossFit Level 1 Trainer, CrossFit Gymnastics, CrossFit Weightlifting

With over 2000 CrossFit coaching hours and numerous certifications, Steve is not only our Co-Founder with Tisha but also our Head Coach.  He plans and programs each workout with your fitness goals in mind.....even if you hate him for it after the WOD (Workout of the Day)!

Qualifications:

  • CrossFit Level 2 Trainer
  • CrossFit Level 1 Trainer
  • CrossFit Gymnastics
  • CrossFit Weightlifting

One of the things I admire most about Steve is his devotion towards his athletes. What also sets him apart is that he builds strong relationship with his athletes. He takes the time to know you in and outside the gym. You don’t need to be an elite CrossFitter; whenever you reach a new PR or achieve a movement you have never done before, he is just a proud of you as you are of yourself.

JOELLE MEDINA

CROSSFIT KIDS COACH - CROSSFIT LEVEL 1 TRAINER, CROSSFIT KIDS CERTIFICATION, CROSSFIT WEIGHTLIFTING

Joelle finally found her passion 5 years ago when Steve had her try a CrossFit class. This instantly propelled her to learn everything about CrossFit for kids, nutrition and fitness. Outside of the gym Joelle found that CrossFit helped her deal with the curveballs of life and daily obstacles. Improving every aspect of her life, relational, physical, mental, and spiritual. It was not only just another workout program, but it had become a lifestyle.

Joelle's experience with CrossFit was so impactful she needed to find a way to share it with as many people as possible leading her to open the Kids & Teens program at Coexiste CrossFit & Obstacles and coaching along side Co-founder, head dude and love of her life, Steve Goffman.

With Joelle's adventurous and creative spirit, contagious smile and kid-like qualities she’s hoping to give kids of all ages the confidence, the empowerment and the joy that CrossFit has brought to her.


SHAWN REBUGIO

COACH - CROSSFIT LEVEL 1 TRAINER, CROSSFIT WEIGHTLIFTING

Shawn joined as a member after completing his level 1 to train under Steve, knowing a certificate alone is not a pre-requisite to coach. He puts technique and quality ahead of his own personal agenda. He wants to be amongst his peers and opts to WOD with them daily over training “on the side”. He is not only humble and approachable but makes you feel like you are valuable; a quality crucial for building relationships. We’re ecstatic to have you on board Shawn! Here’s to a fulfilling journey to virtuosity! Together, let’s do the common uncommonly well.
