Bobby Yocum

Coach Robert Yocum specializes in bootcamp classes and bringing new members into the CrossFit family. “I really like to see athletes surprise themselves with a new PR or getting a new movement down,” he says. “Also, when I see an athlete push the last 15 seconds of a WOD to get a couple more reps rather than stop early, or finish it up a minute after the cap, that’s awesome.”

Robert is obsessive about constantly improving himself, both inside and outside the gym. When he discovered CrossFit, he immediately fell in love with the style of working out and the culture. “Coaching wrestling was something I always envisioned myself doing, but it soon changed to CrossFit,” he says. “Luckily, right around the time I was considering getting my certification, Dave was taking on a few more coaches, and I was able to get certified and start at our gym.”

His favorite quote is “Look in the mirror. That’s your competition.”
