Coach Rita Kellogg
is a Texas native, and grew up right down the road in Boerne, TX. She attended the University of Texas in Austin, where she earned a BA with Honors in Psychology and Speech Communications along with a Secondary Teaching Certification. While in Austin, Rita met her husband (married for 14 years now) and started a family.

 Prior to becoming a CrossFit coach, her career spanned from coaching Middle School girls' volleyball & basketball to working as a very successful Advertising Account Manager in radio. After she had her second child and her husband’s career brought her back to San Antonio, she was fortunate enough to be able to take some time off to spend with her two daughters (now 6 and 8 years old). During that period, she discovered CrossFit, and her new journey began!

 Rita’s passion for fitness and nutrition runs in her blood – her father owned several health food and vitamin stores here in San Antonio for 30 years. Then, she stumbled upon CrossFit several years ago, and it changed her life. Like most CrossFitters, she was amazed at the level of overall fitness she was able to achieve and made life-long friends with members. She became a Coach and has been helping others achieve their fitness and lifestyle goals ever since!

Coach Kevin Walker,
 w
hile not a Texas native, has lived the vast majority of his life in the Lone Star state since his parents settled in San Antonio in 1978.  He is a West Point graduate who spent 10 years on active duty prior to leaving the service in 2002.  Kevin struggled with maintaining a consistent exercise regimen following his departure from the military until he decided to try CrossFit in April 2011. 

Kevin didn't realize that CrossFit would have had such a profound impact on his life physically, mentally, and emotionally.  From learning new eating habits that helped him shed over 70 lbs in 2 years, to fine tuning his lifts and movements, he truly has embraced the CrossFit community and all it has to offer.   Kevin's friendly personality and journey with CrossFit and nutrition makes him relate-able to many and motivating to all. He continues to work hard towards hitting new PRs.  Having spent many years coaching his now grown children in various sports, Kevin is excited to be able to bring his love of coaching to the CrossFit community to help others reach their goals.
