Meet The Coaches
Our coaches take members through the warm-up together, then strength and skills, before finally moving onto the workout of the day. The whole hour is led and monitored by each coach. Each and every session you will leave feeling empowered and stronger.
A business owner, a firefighter, a husband, a father and a role model to many. I started learning about fitness and coaching over 10 years ago and have never looked back since. I moved to Cobourg over five years ago with a dream. A dream to create and be a part of something bigger than myself. Aside from enjoying a workout or two my other interests are any sport and the outdoors. Boating, fishing, camping, anything outside I am a huge fan of. Growing up I was the kid that played every sport I could be involved in. Moving from a small northern town, Cobourg is my home now.
Each and everyday I wake up and am so grateful for being able to coach and teach people about something I am so very passionate about. I coach because I love helping others. Seeing someone else’s success is truly an amazing feeling. When someone opens them self up and really recognizes what they are capable of it’s breathtaking. I am talking about life, not just in the gym. Moving your body is truly a gift, we all should do more of it.
My name is Bud Tinney. I am one of the co-owners at CrossFit Cobourg. I have been coaching CrossFit for 7+ years now. I fell in love with CrossFit from my very first workout. When I enjoy something whole heartedly I share it with every person I cross paths with. That is how coaching began for me. The reason I get out of bed each and every day is to share my passion for fitness, and to help blaze a trail for others to build the absolute best version of themselves.
I think there is something truly magical about moving your body and challenging its physical capabilities on a daily basis. CrossFit is just as much a physical workout as it is a psychological workout. If our bodies feel more capable, our minds become more capable. Helping others realize their true potential is the most rewarding feeling for me as a coach.
Fitness has been a big part of my life for over twenty years. The activity has changed with time from endurance sports, bodybuilding, powerlifting, olympic lifting, calisthenics to stretching. I have been an NCCP Level 2 Weightlifting Coach for eight years and am currently working on a Diploma in Holistic Nutrition. I adopted a simple three step approach to training that I like to share with people 1. Enjoy what you’re doing. 2. Train ridiculously hard. 3. Don’t care what you look like.
I have been a part of CrossFit Cobourg for 7 years. When Bud first told me about the gym I was a little hesitant. After some convincing he got me through the door. I have never looked back since. I am so glad he kept pushing me. Being a member at CrossFit Cobourg has transformed my life. I went from being the shy girl, who would hide in the back and barely say two words to a woman who is now at the front of the class helping others through their Crossfit journey. I coach because I love helping people, showing them that the possibilities are endless with hardwork and perseverance.
My name is Jubba, former owner of Jubba Sausage & Dogs. I am currently a Physiotherapist at Northumberland Hills Hospital and Coach at CrossFit Cobourg. I was introduced to CrossFit in 2009 by my high school math teacher, and loved it. Shortly after, I also began coaching CrossFit out of my backyard gym, and eventually did my CrossFit Level 1 Certification in 2013.
I train to feel good, healthy, happy, have fun with friends, and for the love of the odd competition. I coach because I enjoy helping others experience all of these benefits of CrossFit as well. I love helping people develop confidence and strength in their body so they can enjoy life outside of the gym even more as well. Apart from CrossFit, I love skateboarding, spikeball, golfing, slacklining, snowboarding, hanging out with friends, and visiting my family on Manitoulin Island.
I joined the Crossfit Cobourg team in 2016, and could not think of another gym to train at. Bud and Scott are two of the most knowledgeable people I have met, and help people achieve their goals. I am a very dedicated athlete, playing sports such as hockey, lacrosse, and rugby growing up.
When I found Crossfit in 2011, a new level of training entered my life; the atmosphere in the gym is like no other feeling, especially when your training to be the best person you can be alongside your teammates. I take great pride in my training, and am always excited to help others reach their goals. Whether you strive to grow in a sport, or just want to live a healthy lifestyle, I am here to help you achieve your goals.
My name is Jordan, I’m a husband and a dad of two little hooligans.
When I walked through the doors of Crossfit Cobourg in the summer of 2019 I never expected that I would end up as a coach 3 years later. I was looking for a way to get into better shape and after spending 16 years as a paramedic, my mental health needed some work as well. I was right in the middle of a much-needed career change when I walked into Crossfit Cobourg. Little did I know how much of an impact it would have on my life.
I was so used to the traditional gym experience where you show up, plug in some headphones, and move silently from one machine to another. I was extremely bored with that routine and craved something new.
There is a big misconception that everyone that does Crossfit is an elite athlete and that you already need to be in peak physical condition before attempting it. I learned quickly that there is something for everyone at Crossfit. Every skill and workout can be scaled to meet you where you’re at in your own fitness journey.
I was expecting to join a new gym and to try out something new and challenging physically. What I wasn’t expecting was to become a part of such an incredibly inclusive community where people get to know each other’s names and showing up and having fun is more important than hitting personal records in weights or times or crushing intense workouts.
I love this community so much and I felt like I owed it something back. I did my level 1 certification in November of 2021 and have really enjoyed my new role as Coach Jord! It’s given me the chance to share my enthusiasm for fitness with the athletes at Crossfit Cobourg. I find it extremely rewarding to be able to help others reach and exceed their fitness goals.
I have followed CrossFit for as long as I can remember, starting my own fitness journey in 2010 and having been a member at Cobourg Crossfit since Summer of 2021 when I moved to Port Hope.
I have experience in endurance training, bodybuilding, and powerlifting training and programming. I started my career in Nursing working mostly with geriatrics and palliative care, eventually ending up working in Nuclear Physics but after the birth of my son I realized my calling was elsewhere.
Seeing the passion in the coaches here at Cobourg CF made me want to help people however I could to be better versions of themselves and realize their full potentials.
I have 10+ years of practice in yoga, with a focus on breathing and mobility. Having had coached rep league football has lent to the knowledge base that a holistic approach to any training style is the best approach. With 8+ years of post secondary education I have realized so much of what we learn is outside of a classroom. I want to help athletes of any ability keep and enhance a healthy mind, body and spirit through teaching yoga and encouraging healthy behaviour inside and outside of the gym.
I have training in Hatha, Yin, restorative and maternity yoga and experience in post natal recovery. I am also certified in Rehabilitation and Restorative care. I am always open to learn new things and understand if you’re not learning you’re not growing.
The divine light within me salutes the divine light within you – Namaste.
