Nolan will be shadowing classes and getting a feel for our coaching staff and members over the next few weeks as he starts to transition into a part-time role here at Sanitas. You will see him jumping in WODs, shadowing, and then start to be put on as a secondary before taking over lead responsibilities of Main Class WODs if everything goes well. Nolan works full time at True Coach, an online coaching software company, so you will most likely find him at the early morning workouts, afternoon workouts, as well as weekend WODs!
Coaches are a big part of your experience at CrossFit Sanitas. So unlike many businesses, you all play a pivotal role in the hiring process for new coaches we bring on to the team. As you get to know Nolan in the gym, don’t be shy to give us feedback on what you think and if he’d be a good fit for Sanitas.
Nolan is an Air Force veteran and began his coaching journey in 2012 while studying nutrition at the University of Vermont. He interned as an assistant strength coach with the varsity hockey, soccer, and lacrosse teams. Around this same time he began training at a local CrossFit gym. He was instantly hooked as so many of us are after that first brutal WOD and signed up immediately. A few months later he began work as a coach at his local box and the rest is history. Nolan recently moved to Boulder after taking a job with TrueCoach, a software company for fitness coaches.
