Coach Jimmy Hall    Co-Owner/Head Coach    About Me:  I was born and raised in Grand Junction, Colorado. I grew up playing all sports but my main love was basketball. I spent a few years in Los Angeles doing volunteer service then moved to Utah for a few years. I moved to Arizona in !2006 to help start a business. I have two amazing kids!      CrossFit Journey  While in College I started a sales job that I happened to be good at. With my job I sat around a lot and ate a lot of fast food. I quickly went from 145lbs to 235lbs. In late 2011 I started having a bunch of health issues. I had high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and insulin resistance syndrome. My doctor gave be two choices, start working out and eating right, or start on medications and I would most likely be a diabetic within a couple years. The next day I woke up early, went running and ate salads. I hated it! I hated running, but I wanted to get healthy so I kept doing it.    I started CrossFit in January of 2012 and was instantly hooked! I loved how different it was every day and I loved getting to lift weights. Only a few months of doing CrossFit I went back to the doctors and all my blood markers were healthy. After that I knew I wanted to help other people change their lives through CrossFit the way mine was. I started studying like crazy and a year later I got my Level 1.    I started CrossFit Unwavering in August of 2014 and have loved every minute of it!    Certifications  CrossFit Level 1 Trainer (2013)  CrossFit Level 2 Trainer (2016)

Jacqui Seidel  Occupation:  Physical Education Teacher  Crossfit Kids Coach    About Me:  I was born and raised in Illinois, I grew up in St. Charles, a suburb of Chicago. After college, my boyfriend and I decided to make the move out to Arizona to begin our careers! We have a dog and a cat that are our fur babies!  CrossFit Journey  I grew up interested in a lot of sports, especially soccer and volleyball. Throughout high school my love for volleyball grew and I was fortunate to receive a scholarship to play volleyball at Ball State University in Indiana. After college I was really missing competition and at a loss for what to do for exercise. My boyfriend gifted me a Crossfit membership so I decided to try it out while student teaching. I LOVED it and was immediately interested in learning more.  However, I went back to my first love of volleyball and stopped doing crossfit. Once we moved to Arizona I knew I wanted to give it a try again so I convinced my boyfriend to give Crossfit Unwavering a try. We felt so welcomed to the family and have learned so much the coaches the last two years! I’m so excited to lead our Unwavering Kids program!    Certifications:  Secondary Education-Teaching  Physical Education- K-12  Favorite WOD: Grace

Coach Dave LeClaire    Occupation: USAF, Chief, Network Operations Section at Luke AFB     About me:  I'm from Columbus, OH (AKA – God’s Country), but have lived all around the world because of the AF.  I'm a huge Ohio State Buckeyes fan!! Saturdays during College Football season you’ll only find me hanging with my family watching the Buckeyes. Other than that, I love training and coaching folks.     My CrossFit Journey:  It began in 2009 at CrossFit Omaha in Nebraska. I was at the point where my uniform bearly fit me and I was getting winded walking up a flight a of stairs. I walked in CrossFit Omaha and told owner, Ricky Frasto not to let me leave until I signed up. I loved every second of it ever since. I do CrossFit to personally see improvements in my fitness and to help expand this great community.  When the call went out in 2011 for volunteers to begin a Functional Fitness-based program for Offutt AFB, I jumped at the chance to help. What we started became CrossFit Team Offutt Tactical Fitness. This allowed me to get my CrossFit Level One cert. I was the head trainer for TOTF until 2014 when I got orders to Luke AFB, AZ.  When I first got to Luke, my biggest concern was finding a gym for my daughter, Emily to continue her new CrossFit experience. After bouncing around a few places our first year, I got lucky and contacted Jimmy and came out to CrossFit Unwavering. It was the best decision I could have made. Not only does my daughter love working out here, but I now have the opportunity to get back to what I love doing, helping people improve their fitness on a daily basis.    Certifications:   CrossFit Level 1 Trainer (2012) CrossFit Mobility Certified (2012) USAW Level 1 Sport Performance Certified (2013) CrossFit Football Certified (2013) CrossFit Powerlifting Certified (2013) (and hopefully after Sept 10-11th) CrossFit Level 2 Trainer    Favorite WOD:   “Elizabeth” 21-15-9: Cleans (135), Ring Dips

Coach Stephanie Colton  Occupation:  Co-Owner/Coach CrossFit Unwavering  Southwest Airlines Flight Attendant    About Me:  I was born and raised here in Arizona! My husband and I have four fur babies, two English Bulldogs and two cats. I love any extreme sport and want to try everything twice. I'm super competitive and love a good challenge! But my favorite things in life are traveling and CrossFit!    CrossFit Journey  I started Crossfit in April of 2011. Before that day, I was on my way to a healthy lifestyle. Trading in cigarettes and laziness for an attempt at exercise and becoming fit. I was running, a lot, and hating every minute of it.    During my "running" years, I must have done 10 or so 1/2 marathons and multiple shorter runs and fun runs. But, I never enjoyed it. That was when a friend mentioned CrossFit.  She took me to a class, and I was hooked.    After two years of CrossFit, I decided I wanted more. So, I got my Level 1 Certification and began shadowing coaches. That was when CrossFit Unwavering opened right near my home.    I dropped in to check it out and was blown away by the community and the owner, Jimmy Hall. It took me only a few short weeks to leave my box of 3 years to join Unwavering. I just knew it was where I belonged. Joining Unwavering was the best decision I've ever made!    I came to Unwavering in October 2014 and began coaching in January 2015. I've continued my CrossFit education with my L2 Certification and look forward to adding more.

CrossFit Journey

I started Crossfit in April of 2011. Before that day, I was on my way to a healthy lifestyle. Trading in cigarettes and laziness for an attempt at exercise and becoming fit. I was running, a lot, and hating every minute of it.

During my "running" years, I must have done 10 or so 1/2 marathons and multiple shorter runs and fun runs. But, I never enjoyed it. That was when a friend mentioned CrossFit.

She took me to a class, and I was hooked.

After two years of CrossFit, I decided I wanted more. So, I got my Level 1 Certification and began shadowing coaches. That was when CrossFit Unwavering opened right near my home.

I dropped in to check it out and was blown away by the community and the owner, Jimmy Hall. It took me only a few short weeks to leave my box of 3 years to join Unwavering. I just knew it was where I belonged. Joining Unwavering was the best decision I've ever made!

I came to Unwavering in October 2014 and began coaching in January 2015. I've continued my CrossFit education with my L2 Certification and look forward to adding more.
