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.

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!

I’ve been working with Aliyah for over 18 months and the experience as coach/client has been amazing. She is very attuned to individual needs and focuses on injury prevention and rehab. As an “older” competitor, she has managed to use her vast experience and education to turn me from a middling age group competitor into someone that can compete well against people half my age! Highly recommend Aliyah for her expertise and her genuine care of her clients!
