Owner/Coach

Owner/Coach Chris Cordova is passionate about CrossFit and how it helps other people’s lives. "It not only helps with overall health and fitness, but it pours over to so many other aspects of your life," he says. "I have seen tremendous life changes in people from boosting confidence, losing weight, gaining muscle mass, building mental toughness, and developing good social skills with other people."

At his first official affiliate, he met awesome people that allowed him to intern as a coach and taught him what CrossFit coaching was all about. "From that moment forward, I knew I wanted to run and own my own CrossFit gym someday," he says. "As Iconic continues to grow, I want to provide that same opportunity for coaches looking for a career as a CrossFit coach. "

The thing he loves most about coaching is watching people set a goal and then work really hard to achieve it. "I love being a part of the process, by helping steer them in the right direction and provide the coaching and support they need along the way," he says.

Coach/Kids Coach

Coach Kaylee Shroyer specializes in CrossFit Gymnastics and Olympic weightlifting. "I really enjoy being able to help our members accomplish their goals and do things that they never thought they would be able to do," she says. "I especially love watching their confidence grow. There is nothing more rewarding then helping someone believe in themselves."

Kaylee was a cheerleader in high school and started CrossFit after graduation as a way to stay in tip-top shape. "I fell in love with it," she says. "I loved that there were so many skills to learn and really liked how strong I felt. I soon started staying after class to try to master the skills and found myself helping others as well. It wasn't long before I realized that I really enjoyed helping people learn and that I was pretty good at it. About a year and half after starting CrossFit, I began coaching the youth classes, and now I coach both youth and regular classes."

When Kaylee isn’t at the gym, she’s in class at California State University San Marcos or at the beach soaking up the sun.

Emily Wing

Coach

Emily has been CrossFitting for 6 years and describes herself as #readyfoanything. She loves to create a fun class environment so Iconic athletes can accomplish their goals. She has a deep love for the Iconic community.  One of Emily’s secret weapons is she started at the beginning. When she started CrossFit she couldn’t do a pull up or a push up. Over time her skills improved and her confidence and knowledge grew. Today she has a love of helping others on their fitness journey.

Outside the gym Emily loves to go camping, off-roading in her Jeep, kayaking, and spending time with her family and dogs. She even will enjoy a treat meal every once and a while!
