OUR coaches

Shawn Dooley

OWNER/COACH

Certifications:
CrossFit Level 2 Trainer, USAW Level 1, Adaptive Athlete, The Gymnastics Course Level 1

Shawn has always found himself involved in sports and fitness. He enjoyed playing football, basketball, and his favorite; volleyball. While serving in the Air Force, he spent much of his time in the gym or on the courts.

In 2012, he was invited over to his neighbor’s to do a workout. Little did he know that this would be the beginning of a new endeavor. This workout was quick, dynamic, intense, and rewarding. From that day, CrossFit has been a staple in his fitness journey.
Shawn, his wife Becky, and his neighbors eventually decided they wanted to open up their own gym. This came to fruition in 2013 when they purchased East Cost CrossFit, now CrossFit 611. The mission: Faith, Family, Fitness and Fun!
The best part about owning a gym is being able to lay the groundwork for an accepting environment and being able to carry out our Christian Ministry just by the way we live our lives and interact with people.
Shawn’s favorite part of coaching is putting smiles on faces. It could be a funny joke, a new skill, or helping someone achieve something they didn’t think possible.

Becky Dooley

OWNER/COACH

Certifications:
CrossFit Level 2 Trainer, CrossFit Scaling, Anatomy, Spot the Flaw, The Gymnastics Course Level 1

CrossFit has been a part of Becky's daily routine since 2012. She has been a CrossFit Trainer at CrossFit 611 since 2014 and has coached all levels and ages of athletes, from children to adults. Being a trainer helps her to get to know athletes and to help them find their place in our community.

It also allows her to teach, encourage, and help athletes practice safe movements. Becky believes that CrossFit is about health and longevity, fitness and strength, and a community like no other.

Being a gym owner has given Becky and her husband, Shawn, the opportunity to make a difference in their community. They have been blessed with an amazing group of families and individuals to help, mentor, and guide on their fitness and health journeys. CrossFit 611 allows Shawn and Becky to share their love of Jesus through fitness and community.

Certifications:
Level 1 CrossFit Trainer, National Registry Emergency Medical Technician - Paramedic, CPR Certified

Kelsey Bowman

COACH

Certifications:
CrossFit Level 1 Trainer, National Academy of Sports Medicine Personal Training (NASM), ACE Fitness Nutrition Specialist

Kelsey's coaching experience is very different than most. She started her career in the health and fitness industry in late 2013 by following a non-traditional path. This path led her to work remotely for a small business in Colorado from 2013 to 2018 doing online programming and nutrition coaching.

Kelsey had an incredible experience coaching online and loved working with individuals across the country, however, she did miss the relationships that develop when you see someone on daily basis. She decided to incorporate in-person coaching again in February of 2018 and became a part of the incredible community at CrossFit 611. One of Kelsey’s favorite things is to see an athlete hit a goal and celebrate afterwards!

Kelsey’s passion for health, fitness, and recovery is evident in her own life. Kelsey believes if she can help just one person hit a fitness goal, master their nutrition, or avoid an injury by prioritizing recovery through massage therapy then she has done her job. Kelsey looks forward to seeing you at the gym!

Britt Miller

COACH

Certifications:
CrossFit Level 1 Trainer

Britt is a single mom of an 8-year-old little girl. She has been an animal nurse since 2006 and is heading to school for massage therapy and nutrition coaching.

Britt became interested in CrossFit while going through some things in life where a global gym just wasn’t cutting it – her life was at a standstill and it seemed she had lost everything. Becoming a part of the CrossFit community about 3 years ago has changed her life, saved her life, and has opened up a world of family she never thought she would have. The very reason she decided to become a coach was because of the training she received from great coaches along the way. “They pushed me to do better and be better because they saw something I did not see at the time.” Britt loves talking to people and helping, teaching & educating. CrossFit has not only been a constant but it has drawn her so close to God and all the wonderful people she has had the pleasure of ever knowing. She cannot wait to make a difference and see where this road leads.

A friend recommended CrossFit to her while living in Japan and ever since that day, she was in love! Ashley became a trainer because CrossFit opened up a passion inside of her to help others, especially women, feel proud and confident no matter the number on the scale. Ashley believes that strong is beautiful!

Jeff Sauter

COACH

Certifications:
LEVEL 1 TRAINER

Jeff has been coaching at CrossFit 611 since November 2021.

Jeff retired after 20 years in the US Army as a Senior NCO. Throughout his career, he led and developed Physical Training programs at multiple levels. However, it wasn't until 2015 that he was first introduced to the concept of functional fitness by SOF community team members, who invited him to their workouts.

Later, in 2016, Jeff discovered CrossFit at a box in Camp Arifjan, Kuwait. During this time, he came to understand the community component of the program. His improving fitness and sense of belonging supplemented his program of recovery. It helped reinforce the idea “where the body leads, the mind will follow.”
He continued to be a “CrossFit-er” while stationed in The Netherlands. As a member of a CrossFit gym in Heerlen, Jeff was able to assimilate into the culture, develop lifelong multi-national friendships and even earn his Level 1 Trainer certificate in 2020.
Jeff became a coach so that he can reach out to others who are still struggling. Also, to give back to the community which has done so much for his own physical and mental well-being.
