Over the past 12 years I have been a personal trainer.  I graduated from NSU with a BS in Health & Exercise Science. I began my journey with coaching certifications from ACSM & NSCA.  My interest in CrossFit began in 2006.   I currently hold CrossFit level 1, CF Barbell, CF Kettlebell, CF Olympic Lifting, CF Mobility, CF Strongman, CF Kids, and CF Advanced Weightlifting Trainer Certifications.  I have learned from the best and use my knowledge to train like the best.  Aside from being a CrossFit Trainer and owner of the first Crossfit facility in Natchitoches, I am also a firefighter /driver for the Natchitoches Fire Department.   


Josh Pulley

I've been a professional firefighter for the Natchitoches Fire Deptment for 7 years. I have been
CrossFitting for 4 years.  In 2012 I obtained my Level One Certification and became a Trainer at CrossFit Natchitoches.  I also hold a CrossFit Strongman and CrossFit Mobility Certifications.  In the time that I have been at "The Barn" I have lost over 80lbs and have substantially increased my strength, fitness and overall health.  I decided to get trained to teach CrossFit so I cloud help others do the same.
