Coach Scott Lager joined CrossFit in 2018 when his daughter signed him up for a CrossFit Boot Camp.  After that first session, he was hooked!  He loves that CrossFit is a great combination of Fitness, Health, Mental Stamina and Community. 

Scott is passionate about connecting with people and helping them achieve their personal health and fitness goals. Our CrossFit Petroglyph Community is incredibly supportive, fun, accepting and truly is like a family.  We welcome anyone and everyone to come check us out. CrossFit is for Everybody!

CrossFit Level 1




Coach Brian Pankratz served 23 years in the Air Force and was a regular gym goer, but just doing the regular weightlifting for that many years was getting boring and lacked a real challenge. After deciding to try CrossFit and finding Crossfit Petroglyph he realized that he had found what he was looking for, a mental and physical challenge that pushed him to his limits. 


“Crossfit has taken me to a physical and mental fitness level that I didn’t know I could get to. I may not be strongest or fastest at the box, but I am personally in the best shape I’ve been in and at 47 and two back surgeries later, that says a lot. After I saw the results Crossfit had on me I knew I wanted to coach to help others improve their physical fitness. It has been an amazing experience coaching others and seeing them succeed in their fitness goals.”

Coach Phil Brown started his CrossFit journey in 2016 when he grew tired of the same old repetitive exercises at any of the local globo-gyms. "I found it easy to avoid any exercises or cardio I didn't like (pretty much all of it) and therefore I was stuck in a rut."  Enter CrossFit and its constantly varied movements and one class was all it took for Phil to be hooked. 

Now as a coach, Phil enjoys seeing the smiles and the motivation the members create within each other when they do something they didn't think they could do.  "Our Petroglyph Community is what sets us apart from any other gym and coaching here is a privilege."

Coach Teresa Brown loves to lift heavy weights and see “the face of success” when her athletes achieve something new. Teresa grew up as a dancer and has now added a 365 deadlift to her moves.


“I joined a few classes and really loved the environment. I love the support that other members give each other. After about 6 months I could tell I was hooked. It has quickly become something I am passionate about and what better way to celebrate that than by coaching others!?!” Teresa says.

Coach James Cobb served in the Marine Corps and struggled for years to find an exercise regimen that would work for him. But, after attending a two-week CrossFit Boot Camp class, and discovering that he could exercise and socialize at the same time, he was all in. James loves the community of CrossFit. He enjoys seeing changes in people’s health, wellness, and fitness.


“What other workout insists that you lift things, carry things, throw things, hit things, jump on and over things, and climb stuff?  It made me more energized and actually excited to go workout.  The best part is that you really can start CrossFit at ANY fitness level and still challenge yourself and see your skill level increase. If I can help people see this for themselves, it is something that I want to do."

Coach Keli Boucher joined the Army in 2000, and he got into CrossFit as a way to meet the Army's fitness standards after he got bored with the Army's training methods. His most notable accomplishment was competing in Undisputedly Strong, a local strongman/functional fitness competition, in 2015. He completed a 575-lb. yoke walk during that competition, "Which made my day," he says. "I came in last but had a total blast doing it."

He’s totally addicted to bunless burgers, and says if you ever need to bribe him, just invite him over for a BBQ.
