Certified CrossFit Trainer Jordan Behler

“When I initially found CrossFit, it was simply a form of training to help increase my work capacity as a hockey player. But as I fell in love with CrossFit, it has become a huge part of my life. CrossFit is so interesting to me because it impacts people at such a personal level that’s difficult to duplicate elsewhere in everyday life. I take great pride in being an excellent instructor and getting the most out of clients. The privilege of being apart of people changing their lives for the better, and seeing “light bulb” moments in an athlete’s head when you can clearly witness them experiencing CrossFit movement epiphanies is worth every second. I have been exposed to many coaching style domains ranging from trainers with masters in kinesiology degrees to NHL strength & conditioning specialists. My experiences as a multi-decade hockey player are the backbone of my coaching style and structure.“

Ashtanga Yoga Teacher Ashlie Kosinski

Yoga Instructor Ashlie

Yoga Instructor Ashlie

Growing up Ashlie was a competitive figure skater, reaching USFSA level Junior Moves in the Field and USFSA level Free Intermediate. While in high school she took her first yoga class at the local gym and it piqued her curiosity. It wasn’t until 2012, nearly six years later after that first class, that her interest in yoga moved from yoga for fitness to yoga as a mind and body experience. 

Currently, she is in her 200 hour Ashtanga Yoga Teacher Training, deepening her knowledge of the traditional practice of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. When not on her yoga mat, she is an avid Crossfitter here at Grassfed, and can be found hanging with the 5am crew Monday thru Friday. This unique experience of both yoga and crossfit, allows Ashlie to tailor a yoga flow to include both the traditional aspects of yoga and to incorporate poses that will help crossfitters with their training. 

When she isn’t practicing yoga or training at Grassfed, Ashlie likes to indulge with Real Housewives marathons, participating in other athletic endeavors with her swolemate Candice such as Spartan races and hiking, inverting herself for Instagram pictures and contributing to Lift Heavy Stretch Deep, the yoga and crossfit blog she co-runs with Candice. Fitness is a way of life for this crossfityogi and she is excited to share her passion of all things yoga with the Grassfed Crossfit family.
