Just like most of us at first, Coach Brian Farrell was skeptical about CrossFit. A good friend of his
challenged him for a good year to try a class. He finally did a drop-in at CF Petroglyph, and everything
else is history. The way he thought about fitness changed forever. His passion for the sport, love for
the community, and fire to become a better athlete and person just continue to grow. He understood
having good coaches was very important for the affiliate side. He earned his CF-L1 shortly after. He is a
firm believer in Learn One, Do One, and Teach One. He continues to strive to become a better athlete,
coach, and person. And he has zero plans on slowing down or stopping.

served his country in The United States Navy (2003-2011). He is currently employed as a Licensed
Physical Therapist Assistant since 2016. He started his CrossFit journey in 2019 and hasn’t looked back.

enjoys coaching all levels of fitness, from elite athletes down to day one beginner athletes, and of course
the everyday CrossFit athlete.

Coach/Licensed Massage Therapist
The foundation of my training and treatment sessions is the belief that movement is medicine. This all started in 2018 when I graduated from the Costa Rica School of Massage Therapy. When I returned home, I started my massage therapy career in a CrossFit Box in West Michigan It took about 8 months, but I was soon converted to the love of CrossFit. After being a college athlete, I finally found something that made me excited to challenge my body again. Training hard and Recovering Harder. They say love what you do and you'll never work a day in your life... well I sure as heck love what I do. If you want to have a dance party during your class, I'm your coach. If you want to feel better and maybe gain some mobility, I'm your therapist. If you're looking for unique personal training, I'm your trainer. LFG

"Find a fitness program that challenges you, that you'll consistently show up for, and you'll see results." That's what I tell anyone looking to improve their health. It's how I found CrossFit. At first, it sounded intimidating and scary to me until my wife had begun trying it. I was curious, and found myself following her programming, performing the workouts at our gym at work. I quickly found that the workouts were fun (translated: I could see myself doing this everyday and enjoying it). That was it, I joined CrossFit Petroglyph in 2016 and soon discovered that not only was I going to be able to balance strength training with cardio, but that many of the movements were directly related to how we move outside of the gym, It all made perfect sense and I now believe this is the most functional way to exercise. The varied movements and workouts kept it exciting and the community is amazing.
Coaching allows me to share the passion, and knowledge I have gained over the years, and hopefully inspire all of the athletes that walk through the door.
