I am from the area – went to high school in Newport WA. During that time I played a full schedule of sports (volleyball, basketball, track) for all 4 years. After high school, I took an academic scholarship to a small private college in North Dakota. There I took on a full load of classes and worked a bunch of “get me through college” jobs, my favorite of which was head coach of a basketball team, K-8. After 4 years I graduated with a major in Business Communications and moved to Seattle where I started a job as a graphic design recruiter. While in Seattle, I caught up with a good friend from high school who had just gotten out of the Marines and after dating for a while, he asked me to marry him. He also did me the favor of convincing me that CrossFit was awesome and I started my on-ramp in the beginning of 2012 at a wonderful gym in Lynnwood WA. After a while, we realized that the Seattle life, while amazing in some aspects, just wasn’t for us. We also realized that we shared a similar passion for fitness and CrossFit and needed to do something with that. So, we decided to move somewhere that felt a little bit more like home and once we got there decided to take a plunge into making people healthy. We opened CrossFit Post Falls and couldn’t be happier about what we chose to do and the difference that we’ve already made. Our community is amazing and is so supportive of each other. I believe that everyone has the capability to better their lives and be healthy, the question is whether or not they have the motivation. The magic happens outside of your comfort zone, drop the excuses, get in here and make it happen!

Justin
CrossFit Level 1 Trainer (2014)
The Brand X Kids Certification

Growing up in Coeur d’Alene, ID, Justin Knight was an active youth. Pursuing his addiction to adrenaline rushes he was consumed by extreme action sports, as well as organized sports. He began lifting at an early age, where he was able to hone his craft via great weight lifting programs at his middle school and high school – which led to great success on the gridiron providing him the opportunity to play for the Carroll College Fighting Saints.
He continued to stay fit and play outdoors after finishing up his time on the Carroll squad. Thriving in a fast paced environment is what originally attracted him to CrossFit. After dabbling with some WODs he, surprisingly, decided that he was not in peak physical and mental condition. Quickly thereafter he plunged head first into the CrossFit realm in 2014 and found immediate results that solidified his decision to stick to the methodologies. He is now eager to share his plethora of knowledge to others and is committed to expanding this knowledge to provide the utmost elite level of training – as he hopes to help anyone achieve his/her fitness goals. Recently, Justin has received his Bachelor of Arts in Health & Physical Education: Sport Management, and plans on pursuing a career in Physical Therapy. He completed his CrossFit Level 1 Trainer course in May of 2014, and intends to expand his coaching credentials in weightlifting, gymnastics, kettle bell, and mobility.
