Ryan is a founding member of Sheyenne River CrossFit and also one of the Owner/Coaches. He was one of the very first members at the gym and purchased the gym with another member in September of 2020.

Kerri is our resident warrior. While the warrior term is related to her fight with breast cancer, it can be used in almost every phase of her life.

Mike started at Sheyenne River CrossFit during one of the Nutrition Kickstarts and has been a staple member since then. He’s a former athlete and has a great gift for socializing with any member. He got into coaching at Sheyenne River CrossFit because of his love of CrossFit and his want to help others, but his biggest passion is working with our student athletes to help them improve their skill-sets related to their sport.

Hillary also started out as a member and converted into a coach. Coaching is in her nature as she’s also one of the coaches for the West Fargo Packatahnas. Like Mike, she loves coaching all our classes, but has a special place for our student athletes. When you don’t see her coaching, you’ll see her taking amazing photos as she’s also our resident photographer. Certifications: CrossFit-Level I Certification Preferred Class Time: 9:00 AM Coaching Class Times: 9:00 AM Passion: Working with student athletes. Hillary brought in the Packatahnas group and loved working with them to improve their explosive movements and mobility. Seeing the evolution of her athletes always brings a smile to her face.
Just like all our other coaches, Ashley started out as a member and then took on a coaching role early in 2021. She has a gift for working with our 6:00 PM class and anytime our coaches are goofing around. With a background in behavioral science, this isn’t a surprise. Ashley loves helping people understand the why behind what they do (both in the gym and out) and plays a big role in our nutrition and goal setting areas. Certifications: CrossFit-Level I Certification Preferred Class Time: 6:00 PM Coaching Class Times: 5:00 PM, 6:00 PM Passion: Helping people understand their “why”. Exercise and nutrition can be complicated fields to navigate and Ashley wants to help all our members be their best and understand that being their best doesn’t mean ALWAYS being their best.
