Our Owner


James Evertsen

Owner/Head Coach
Coach, CF-L2, USAW L1

I have worked with people for over 20 years and when I found Crossfit there was no turning back. I wrestled in High School and my first class felt a bit like I was back on a wrestling mat and I have not stopped since. I am  a nerd when it comes to human movement and always try to ignite the floor when I am coaching. I love watching people do things they thought they would never be able to do. The smile is EVERYTHING! Welcome to the best hour of your day with the best people

Coach, CF-L1 

I came to CrossFit because my husband talked me into it. I was super nervous to even attempt most movements. A couple months in, the owner suggested that I get my L-1 and I thought he was crazy! Turns out that Im pretty good at this CrossFit thing and the owner and community at CFMW has helped me become the coach I am today. I have realized that I am capable of doing hard things and love being a part of other athletes’ processes.
