I have always been active and competed in some type of group sport growing up. After starting a family and staying home with small children I really began to miss the social aspect of team sports. That when my husband dragged me to a CrossFit class…I was immediately drawn in by the community, there were so many friendly people, which I discovered was not unique to that gym but almost every CrossFit gym I have stepped into since. After starting my journey as an athlete, I found so much joy in it that I got my Level 1 Coaching certificate and haven’t looked back. That was in 2016, and I have since taken many more classes to further my knowledge to give my athletes the best coaching, the most current information, and the latest methods and training techniques.
General Manager / Coach
I am a lifelong athlete. I have played most major sports at the youth and high school levels. I played collegiate football at West Texas A&M, prior to getting an Engineering degree. But I never lost the love for health and wellness. After beginning a professional career and becoming bored with traditional gyms, I found CrossFit. This changed my life, I found the community that I missed from team sports and I developed an understanding of functionality in fitness. After over 5 years of being an athlete, I decided to start coaching as well, this gave me a platform to spread health and wellness to the greater community.

My passion for fitness started while I was in the United States Army. After 6 years leading soldiers I decided to continue doing what I am passionate about and become a personal trainer. Then one day I tried CrossFit for the first time at OpenRange CrossFit and loved it! I have been doing CrossFit for 1 year now and have been coaching for about 6 months! I love seeing people do things they never thought they could do, sometimes they just need a little encouragement!

Hello, my name is Jarvis Smith and I am a coach here at Open Range CrossFit. I have a passion for motivating others to achieve their goals as well as holding myself accountable to achieve my own. CrossFit has become a huge part of my life, I currently train for competitions such as Wodapalooza, Granite Games, and local comps. Being active has always been a part of my life, being an ex-baseball player I continue to have that drive to compete and working in group settings. Also, a fun fact about me is that I always have gummy bears with me during training.
Hello, My CrossFit journey began in the Spring of 2018 when my mom talked me into signing up for a 6-week challenge and I ended up falling in love with the sport (Thanks Mom!). I now train competitively and have participated in local comps with the intent of progressing to larger scale competitions. My previous sporting endeavors include wrestling, football, and powerlifting. I'm currently a nursing student at Amarillo College and want to eventually work as a flight nurse. I wanted to share my passion for the sport, so I started coaching in the spring of 2019. Fun fact- My favorite lift is the Snatch!
My name is Jon Solis, I started CrossFit on a 6-week challenge back in 2018, and it changed my life!! All of my life I have been an athlete, playing football for over 15 years and wrestling for 12. Sports have always been my life. I kind of lost my way for a while and then found CrossFit! It totally changed my physical and mental well-being and I couldn’t be happier. I love coaching others in the way of fitness and strive to make others a success story like I was.
