Elite Coaching Staff

Manuel Trujillo - Co-Owner & Coach

Manuel Trujillo has been a part for the Crossfit Loveland family going on four years. The community and team in addition with the competitive nature made him feel right at home. Having an athletic background growing up and playing College football at Adams State, Manuel always had a strong desire to share his athletic and strength experience with any and everyone. He played football, wrestled, and ran track all 4 years in high school, receiving all state athletic honors while also receiving Male athlete of the year at his High School.
 
He has been a coach here at Loveland for just short of three years and has enjoyed digging through the latest information on anything related to health, nutrition, and exercise. He received his Crossfit level one certification and as head coach and head of programming currently working on many more certs including his CF level 2.

Ever since his younger days, manuel always had a strong desire to help individuals and athletes achieve their goals. Once given the opportunity to live out his dream, he hopes to take it and run with it, implementing his own ideas and beliefs for creating strong, healthy, functional athletes. It's never been about aesthetics but more about making people the best version of themselves.

While he is not coaching his favorite athletes at CFL, he spends his off time creating memories with friends going camping, fishing, hiking, professional sport games, and of course eating at all the local diners. He is a proud father of his 6 year old pit bull Koda, and an amazing uncles to his dog niece Mila and dog nephew Rufus. Also, serves as a great role model to all the toddlers at the gym and has been identified by some as "Uncle Manny".

Ryan Martin - Coach

I have been an athlete ever since I was old enough to be enrolled in organized sports. Once I was finally old enough to play football, we realized it was a better fit for my clumsiness than soccer. I could fall down and look like it was supposed to happen! Football became my passion. I played offensive and defensive line in high school, and earned a scholarship to play for the University of Nebraska at Kearney as an offensive tackle.

Once football was over, I decided that I needed to give up the awesome lifestyle of eating anything and everything just to maintain a playing weight of close to 300 pounds. I spent YEARS after football was over (six to be exact) trying to find the "right fit" for a workout program, with no real luck. I was sick of my 30-minute-cardio-followed-by-a-little-bit-of-lifting routine. I was not seeing results. While training for a big obstacle event in 2012, a friend of mine casually asked if I had heard of CrossFit. I hadn't, so we decided to give CrossFit Loveland a shot. I was hooked! With my athletic background, this is what I needed. After doing CrossFit for about a year, I became a coach. I wanted to share the thing I loved that had changed my life with others, and wanted to be a part of something bigger. I love watching lives change right before my eyes!

I am passionate about helping people reach their goals, whatever they may be! I love the new athlete, and I love the competitor. I was asked once by a fellow athlete, "If you're not training for competition, then WHAT are you training for?" My answer: "To be a better father and husband." I truly believe in helping you become the best version of you that you can become, whatever that may be!

Brett Sall - Coach

Brett Sall discovered CrossFit Loveland in 2014 and instantly felt drawn to the simplicity of the gym, the genuine and caring community of people and of course the WOD’s (the workout of the day). Along with the encouraging community of people, it was the variety of movements (weightlifting, gymnastics and metabolic conditioning) that kept him challenged, intrigued and coming back for more.
 
When Brett is not coaching at CrossFit Loveland, he works alongside his wife, Brittany, slingin’ houses at C3 Real Estate Solutions. He spends his days off enjoying mountain adventures with his two best companions—his wife and his dog, Uncle Gary.
 
Brett enjoys keeping the mood light and is always looking for ways to have fun. He has even been known to do some unicycle muscle-ups or handstand-twerking when not taking his workouts too seriously!
