About Our Coaches

We want to take a moment to write about the League of Xtraordinary Fitness coaching staff. We believe that coaching is critical to your experience and is something that differentiates LXF. Anyone can become a Crossfit coach by meeting all the requirements of a Level 1 Certification seminar. That certificate is only the foundation for our coaches at LXF. We strive to hold our coaches to a higher standard. Each member of the staff is chosen for their ability to engage with athletes of all levels, their ability to teach athletes to perform movements safely, their enthusiasm for building the LXF community, and their passion for learning and building their own technical expertise.

Each of our Coaches have come up through the ranks as members of League of Xtraordinary Fitness. Most of our coaches have been learning exclusively from at LXF for 1 to 3 years. They’ve become proficient in our exclusive techniques that have brought success to all of our athletes. This experience is invaluable and is the key ingredient in the application of our coaching techniques. Our coaches engage in continuing education through regular clinics at CrossFit Proven. These clinics focus on the development of their technical expertise.

Each coach goes through an inclusive and intensive apprenticeship under the direct tutelage of Matt and each have demonstrated a complete proficiency and efficacy as a coach before they are able to lead classes at CrossFit Proven. Our coaching staff also participates in seminars and receives certifications outside of LXF’s in-house program like; CrossFit’s Olympic Lifting Certification and CrossFit Mobility.

I recently had the opportunity to drop in at this CrossFit gym for a few classes, and the experience was nothing short of spectacular. From the moment I walked in, I was struck by the warmth and welcoming nature of the entire community, from the regular members to the staff. The coach stood out in particular with their approachability and expertise. Each session was structured in a way that not only challenged my fitness level but also ensured that I was executing the movements safely and efficiently. Their constructive feedback and encouragement made the tough workouts feel more manageable. The owner also deserves a special mention. Their dedication to creating an inviting and inclusive environment was clear. They went above and beyond to make sure every individual felt seen and supported, regardless of their fitness level or experience with CrossFit. In conclusion, this CrossFit gym is a gem. The potent combination of a great community, excellent coaching, and warm hospitality make it an ideal place to achieve your fitness goals. Whether you are a seasoned CrossFit athlete or a beginner looking to start your journey, I highly recommend dropping in for a class.

Crossfit Proven has been awesome to me. Their trainers are exceptional, the overall vibe is great and I have had nothing but good experiences. I definitely recommend them to my friends and family. Proven is clean, well kept, and growing in leaps and bounds! Coaches are extremely knowledgeable, enthusiastic and engaged. Great location. Easy, convenient parking. Hands down, best choice I’ve ever made training at Crossfit Proven. VERY friendly team who make me actually want to go workout. I look forward to walking through the doors and always feel amazing when I leave!

Aliyah is an unbelievable trainer. Proven in Downingtown has got me working out safer and harder. After only three days I feel my muscles getting more toned and my posture is better. The gym is very clean and organized and they make it easy to track your progress and pay with Venmo app. Highly recommend if you’re new to CrossFit like me! The 6am classes fit my lifestyle perfectly.

The trainers are great, positive and really push you! But the best part is that everyone training is super outgoing and welcoming..it's like a community! Everyone knows each others names and supports one another. As a newcomer to Cross Fit this was really important for me since I felt uncomfortable with almost all the moves. Highly recommend....and you will get fit!
