Evan is a CrossFit Level 2 trainer and NESTA Certified Personal Trainer. He is a veteran of the United States Army and served 6 years as a Combat Medic. He was introduced to CrossFit in 2005 while in the Army and realized the application of fitness for combat and life required conditioning more diverse than just running and lifting weights. Evan views all of life as potential training exercises, and understanding this, Evan seeks to advance North Louisiana's understanding and expression of movement to a degree of virtuosity previously unrealized.
Evan and his wife Lauren also own Bossier City CrossFit, and the methods and philosophy taught at both are the result of years of training, education, and proven metrics of success. Our mission has always been to make you save money on healthcare, learn to use your body and avoid injury, look better naked, and become harder to kill.

Tina was born in Norway and competed in Country Line Dance(waltz, smooth, cuban, novelty, funk) as a teenager. She became the Norwegian champion and placed 4th in the World Championship before she moved to the U.S. After having her son in 2009 she started working out at home and at a local gym where she got stuck in a routine and seeing little results. She found Crossfit Ruston in 2015 and couldn’t wait to join with her best friend. Three years later she is loving everything about CFR, how it makes her feel, the family she gained, showing her son a healthy way of life. Her goal is to help other people feel good about themselves and achieve their goals.
