You have a couple of options in Huntington. Crossfit thunder is the established box that has been open since around 2008 with most coaches having years of experience training, coaching, and nutrition. There is another box opening next year that appears to have some pretty good athletes that will be coaching but have little to no experience coaching others.

I think as far as your comment as little coaching experience may be misinformed. The lead coach Darian has coached and trained people before even though young and is second in the state. Tom Nay is the top male in the state

and a force to be reckoned with. So unless familiar with Crossfit and the athletes I'd advise you not respond. You can't be a top athlete without knowing what to do!

I respectfully disagreement about assuming top athletes are top coaches. Many times the best coaches are not the best athletes but they understand technique and how to teach. Just because Tom and Darian have ranked in competitions doesn't assure that they will be great coaches. Maybe they will, maybe they won't. Only time will tell. I just stated they are inexperienced coaches, which they are. Nothing regarding their ability to excel themselves. Calm down chief!

Keep in mind these "Top Athletes" at the new CF trained at CF Thunder, so the coaches at CF Thunder must be pretty good. And yes , Darian there lead coach, is 19.

Just found out that Crossfit thunder charges people different amounts based on your job and what they think they can get out of you. Ask your neighbors what they pay.

Absolutely true Steve. There are some people at our box that pay less. I myself pay full price but I'm happy that Jeremyabf Drew provide an opportunity to some really good people to work out that couldn'totherwise afford it. Those athletes do some extra stuff around the box though to compensate for their reduced membership cost.

Agree. Just because you are a good athlete doesn't mean you will make a good coach. I know however ever that Tom and Darian have helped me learn many movements that other coaches were unable to help me with. Also just because you have experience in coaching, that doesn't mean you are a good coach either. Let's not make this a bashing battle on two fine individuals who have probably been nothing but nice and helpful to any of you.

Both Crossfits in Huntington have great coaching staffs. You will be in great hands either route you take.

Rob-

Used to xfit in other gym as across WV. There are many top athletes in this state from Hootie, Dillon, Hunt, Harvey, as well as many more including Tom Nay. I have met many of these guys and they are all talented athletes.
Shocked

Was very shocked by people's responses to the coaches at the new box. I understand why those are upset, but I know these coaches personally and they have done nothing wrong. They were asked if they wanted a coaching position. You can be upset with the owners, but these folks are smart, passionate, and determined. Figure out who you are upset with. They did no harm.
CFT watch out

Gettin in good with the CFT coaches is the only way theyll help you. Soooooo many moody and bipolar coaches. They love the young girls so flirt on.

Most are jealous haters. I have worked out both places. Can say nothing bad except no one in Huntington is as good as Tom and Darian. The people posting are just envious. Both boxes have good people. Darian's step dad helped her and Tom a ton. The rest never gave her a shot. I came in town and worked out and competed with them they are legit. The rest need to get over it.
As far as I can tell

Crossfit Huntington owners did nothing wrong either. CFT doesn't "own" Crossfit in Huntington.
