"Tina is an amazing coach! As a beginning coach, I see Tina as a role model. Her athletes love her because she is so darned encouraging! She is hard on them for sure, but they all love her for it! Top notch coach; always trying to be better; that's what makes her an awesome crossfit coach."
“Tina is amazing. There is no other way to put it. Not only for her dedication and constant support for her team but also for her service to our country. I have the utmost respect for her commitment to hard work. As a coach she has helped instill a sense of confidence in myself and in my body that I haven't had in a long time and I no longer thought was attainable. She pushes me, helps me accomplish things that I never thought I could do. It's like she sees things in us that we don't let ourselves see because our own negativity and doubt. She always roots for the underdog while simultaneous helping people at all different levels of fitness. She sees who needs that little extra motivation and always goes the extra mile for them. Tina is much more than a coach, she is a friend. The genuine care and concern she displays for the people around her is tremendous. She whole heartedly believes in everyone and wants us to succeed. Tina makes workouts fun, always smiling, joking and encouraging. No matter how hard or scary it seems, you know she will be right behind you 110% with a joke, a smile and kind words. Sincerely, this woman is an inspiration and a life changer and I am exceedingly grateful to have her in my life and on my journey towards a healthier me.”
"CrossFit was foreign to me before coming to Turnagain. When first starting out Tina was patient and took the time to make sure I was getting the technique down - once she saw me improve my technique she pushed me to get better, stronger, and faster. When she saw me struggle she'd take her time to give me the encouragement I needed! She told me she knew I could do it and to believe in myself! I honestly wouldn't have continued with CrossFit and enjoy it as much as I do now if I had started with a different coach! She is the epitome of what a coach should be! Supportive, patient, challenging, and an all around cheerleader for those she coaches. She truly cares about those around her and celebrates our accomplishments no matter how small they seem to others. She recognizes each of us for who we are and respects our limitations while still managing to make sure we are challenged to get better. I truly appreciate everything she's done and her coaching will always stay with me! ❤️"
"Dedicated. Inspiring. Passionate. These are some of the first words that come to mind when I think about Coach Tina. She is always looking to improve her knowledge and skills so that she can teach and motivate her students. She gives every person she trains individually tailored instruction and support and pushes her students to do and be their best."
“Tina is an amazing coach and athlete! She is a great role model for my 11 year old daughter, who absolutely loves coach Tina. Becca is always excited to come to the gym and work out. Tina is attentive to make sure she drills the fundamentals first and is always encouraging her as she makes progress. I've never been so proud and thank Tina for teaching her that being active and fit is fun :). We love you coach T!!!!”
"Tina is a very motivating coach. She is able to reach people at their level with modifications from beginner to Rx. If you're struggling with something, she is able to suggest ways to work through it and get to the next level. She is unfailingly positive and genuinely wants to see people succeed, and that comes through each time I've been at one of her classes."
"Tina is one of my favorite coaches at the gym. First, she isn’t just a coach, she pretty much lives and breathes fitness. She always seems to be stretching her limits and taking on new challenges and opportunities to better herself in ways that will improve others. I like that she runs a tight ship and naturally commands attention during her training sessions so that it doesn’t become distracting with too much side conversations with members. She is a solid person and is genuine, and I appreciate that. She makes me want to do my best and reminds us that is what our focus should be. She doesn’t tolerate the judgement or comparison of yourself to others and instead pushes your focus on setting goals and work towards reaching them. I stand behind her and support her as a coach. She keeps it real by keeping fitness fun and safe."
“Tina’s reliability and dedication to those she trains is second to none! She consistently is trying to improve herself to better serve those she comes in contact with. She is able to reach her athletes on a personal level and understand when, and how, to encourage and make people stronger, mentally and physically. You will enjoy training with her as she will keep moving your forward with any goals you set.”
