Our CrossFit Coaches

Our highly trained and certified coaches discourage unsafe and sloppy technique.  Our trainers are carefully screened to insure they have an experience level that allows them to adapt their instruction to any level of athlete from the absolutely sedentary beginner to the elite competitor.  It’s not a race of who finishes first, it’s a matter of working hard.  And that’s why at CrossFit MKG we stress the importance of scaling workouts to each individual’s ability.

I didn’t start my fitness journey until my early 20’s when I went to college and gained the freshman “40”. I started running and eventually started running marathons, and half marathons before discovering Martial Arts. In my 30’s I started competing in amateur kickboxing and boxing. To help improve my conditioning, a friend suggested CrossFit in 2009 and I was hooked. I love all types of fitness and continue to Cross train.

Tammy is the co-owner of MKG Martial Arts & Fitness and the manager for the CrossFit @ MKG program. Tammy has an extensive teaching background in everything from group fitness, Boxing, TRX, bootcamp, Muay Thai, self-defense, CrossFit, to coaching competitors.

She holds the rank of Level 2 Instructor under Sifu Rick Faye in Martial Arts, White Glove in Savate Kickboxing under Professor Salem Assli and an Full Instructorship in Thai Boxing under Ajarn Chai Sirisute.

I came to CrossFit after having “tried it all”. I played sports growing up and the need to be active continued into adulthood. I’ve played on adult women’s and co-ed basketball, soccer, volleyball and softball teams.

I’ve also taken about any class that’s been offered, from trapeze to hot yoga to boxing to zumba. When I decided to try CrossFit in 2010, I found my home. I have never once gotten bored or felt the urge to move on. In fact, I feel more invigorated and dedicated to the sport than ever! The constant variety and ability to see real progress towards personal goals motivates me every day. I recently decided to become a coach and am so happy to share my love of CrossFit with members of all ages and fitness levels.

Scott Hildebrandt - Head Crossfit Coach

Crossfit Certified Level 1 Coach

At the age of 39, I was a husband, father of two young boys and working a full time management position. It was noticeable the past few years of failing to prioritize exercise took their toll. This was very difficult for me both mentally and physically, as I was always active in sports. I wanted

to get in the best shape of my life by age 40, but had no idea how. Then my wife suggested I should try crossfit. I joined a local affiliate soon thereafter and it has been a passion of mine ever since.  It was amazing how the crossfit workout methodology yielded the physical results I was looking for. What I didn’t expect was how motivating mentally it would be. To walk out of class each day with a sense of accomplishment provided my soul such an uplift. The best part was being able to share it with multiple people. The positive community vibe you get to experience is unlike anything else. I recently became a coach to make a difference in people’s lives. I want to see other individuals achieve their fitness goals and experience the other positive benefits of crossfit.

I started doing CrossFit in 2012 in preparation to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro and I was immediately hooked. The variety of workouts, and the friendly competition has really pushed me to a new level of fitness. I also enjoy the support and camaraderie that comes with working out in a group. I decided to become a coach in 2018 in the hope of helping others achieve their fitness goals.

Really happy with MKG CrossFit! I started with their On-Ramp class this January, and so far it's been exactly what I was looking for. I've never been a big gym person, and was looking for something varied where someone told me what to do =). The coaches and community here are great - they focus on making sure you can do the movement correctly / safely, and scaling things to people's abilities. Very welcoming and friendly environment for newcomers.
