Welcome Joe!! Monday, 2-2-2015

We have a very exciting announcement to make:
Please welcome Alpine’s new General Manager and CrossFit Coach, Joe Baumann!!
A little about Joe…
Joe has managed a local gym in Denver for the past 2.5 years and travels the Southwestern US as part of the CrossFit Strongman Seminar Staff (in other words he teaches CF Coaches how to pick up, press, squat, and carry really really heavy stuff!). He also boasts a lot of knowledge to bring to Alpine (see below).  But most importantly, Joe is one of the friendliest, kindest, humble and hardest working people I have met within the CrossFit community.  We have known each other for about four years and now very excited to have him as a piece of our community at Alpine!
What this means for you….
Joe will become another great resource for you for anything you need at Alpine and on a full-time schedule.  He will be just as involved in the administrative side of Alpine and essentially will have the same authority as myself (ie membership inquiries, signing up a friend, training and nutrition questions, organizing and informing you on upcoming events, and picking up really really heavy stuff….which I can’t do anyways so don’t come to me for that =)
You may contact Joe directly at:
Gym Phone: 303-263-2997
And of course during hours he is scheduled at Alpine
Here’s an impressive list of Joe’s education and qualifications as well:  Undergraduate College Degree in Design Management; CrossFit Strongman Seminar Staff; CrossFit Level One; CrossFit Level Two (Coach’s Prep Course); CrossFit Level Three (pending); CrossFit Strongman; CrossFit Endurance; USAW Level One Sports Performance and Weightlifting Coach; Freestyle Connection Gymnastics Seminar; NASM Certified Personal Trainer; CPR & AED.
Oh and here’s a couple of Joe’s benchmarks too so ya’ll know he can produce some FITNESS too =)
3:04 Fran; 1:57 Grace; 1:30 Half Marathon Row; 3:03 1000m Row (Joe was the 2013 Colorado Indoor Rowing State Champion!)
Many of you have already met Joe as he has been doing some guest coaching and he has also spent some part-time training at our facility in the past.   Please take a moment this week to introduce yourself and welcome him as another addition to our incredible community!  
Oh and lastly, a big thanks to all of YOU out there for helping make this possible!!  #jobcreation
This calls for a celebration….TWENTY of them…
