NATALIE CHADWICK

CROSSFIT FLOOD TRAINER

Natalie began her Crossfit journey long before stepping foot into a gym. For years she watched her father do home workouts from the main site, trying some variations herself. It wasn’t until 2012, however, that she started training consistently. Soon, she experienced various coaching styles and techniques. Having coaches help her specifically train her weaknesses inspired Natalie to do that for other people. After years of learning from coaches, Natalie got her CF-L1 with the goal to help every athlete realize his/her own barriers and experience the joy of pushing past them. If you ask her, she will say that as a coach there still is nothing more exciting than seeing an athlete learn a new skill or overcome a recent barrier, no matter how small.

RYAN WHEELER

CROSSFIT FLOOD TRAINER
Ryan found CrossFit after finishing his college basketball career at UC San Diego. After a few months of working out without the team atmosphere of college sports and having to figure out workouts on his own Ryan decided to try out CrossFit. After his first workout he was sold and became a member at Flood. Ryan was a member of our community at Flood for 5 years before he felt the tug to become a Level 1 trainer. Ryan’s favorite part of coaching is keeping a fun community oriented atmosphere in the gym where people can take joy in working out and push to accomplish their fitness goals. Ryan is easy to spot in the gym standing 6’10” tall and often being lapped by his wife Alex. Ryan and Alex’s free time is often spent at the gym or with their dog Trigger at the beach.

TAYLOR SOLORIO

CROSSFIT FLOOD TRAINER

Taylor, recently completed her Bachelor’s of Science degree in Kinesiology with an emphasis in Movement Science from San Jose State University. During her time at San Jose State, she was team captain of the Women’s Division I Swimming and Diving team. Furthermore, at San Jose State, she trained rigorously with her team doing Crossfit as part of their strength training. During that time Taylor grew to enjoy doing Crossfit and knew it was something she wanted to continue when she retired from swimming. While interning at Diablo Crossfit Moxie in San Jose, she got her CF-L1. Once Taylor moved to San Diego, she found the community oriented gym she was looking for, Crossfit Flood. Taylor is excited to be a part of the Flood community and help its members stay healthy and have fun.
