Brandon Simpson – CCFT
“I got into CrossFit because of the challenge, and stayed because of the people.” Brandon has been coaching CrossFit since 2009 with time spent outside of the CrossFit gym as Head Strength and Conditioning Coach for Shannon Forest Christian School for 2 years. “I like to think of myself as more than just a trainer, anyone can give you sets and reps and say go. I want to know why you’re here, what are you training for? What are the biggest lifestyle factors that are getting in the way of you achieving your goals?” Brandon coaches with a disruptive, holistic style, where he digs into what is most important and guides athletes towards their real goals.
He also does limited speaking engagements on the intersection of life, business, and fitness for entrepreneurs.

“The coaching and training that I’ve received from Brandon has been invaluable to my progress as an athlete. Not only have I seen obvious results with regards to strength, but I have also gained a lot in terms of knowledge of proper form and nutrition.
Brandon has the qualities that I value in a coach—he is thoroughly knowledgeable, patient, considerate, and effective at instructing. He values your concerns, and takes the time to educate you on how to be most effective.
I cannot stress enough how educated Brandon is on all things fitness and nutrition, and how beneficial that is for me personally. At a time when one can find immediate answers to almost anything on Google or YouTube, it is still priceless to have access to an actual human who can accurately answer specific questions, and apply the knowledge he has gained through studying and experience to you personally.”

“Brandon is a down to earth speaker and really engages a crowd with fun, great questions, and examples you can relate to. Though he is an expert in personal transformation and health, his reading on subjects like history, philosophy, and entrepreneurship really shine when audiences ask him questions. I can’t wait to have him back to our group!”

“I’ve been working with Brandon for a year to help me reach personal goals both on specific lifts and CrossFit skills. It’s great to be able to work with him on specific movements in more depth than is possible in a group class. Brandon does a great job of breaking movement down to the details without letting you lose sight of executing with power and timing. It’s amazing how quickly you can make progress with a coach who focuses on your personal strengths and weaknesses. Also, as a business owner and a mom of two, I appreciate that Brandon helps me set goals that are realistic considering the amount of time and effort I can devote.
I love learning to move more efficiently so I can lift heavier and Brandon helps me do just that, plus we have a lot of fun along the way. I’d highly recommend personal training at SRCF and with Brandon if you want to take it to the next level.”- Christina H., Entrepreneur
