Our coaching family

Meet the intensify coaches



Owner + Head Coach

I began my coaching career in football following success in high school athletics, but have truly found my passion for coaching through CrossFit. After finding CrossFit to help improve my own personal fitness I knew that I wanted to share my life-changing experience with as many people as possible. In 2010 I helped found CrossFit Intensify in a garage. Since then our business has grown into Intensify Strength and Fitness and I’ve had the pleasure of coaching hundreds of people in CrossFit and Olympic Weightlifting and helped them achieve new personal heights.

General Manager + Head Coach

My passion for coaching is rooted in my desire to help people reach their fullest potential. As a coach, I truly believe that I have the best job in the world and each day I have the opportunity to make a positive impact with each person that I work with. After a decade of coaching I still consider it a privilege to serve my community and help shape stronger, healthier and happier humans. Outside of the gym, I enjoy playing golf, cooking and searching for the best spots for delicious food, and spending time with my close friends.

Hi friends! I’m KP! I have been a part of the Intensify Strength and Fitness family since my first day of CrossFit in 2015. After three years training as an athlete, I joined the coaching staff in 2018.

I enjoy having the opportunity to help people make positive improvements in their lives by being a coach at Intensify Strength and Fitness. One of my favorite things is watching people challenge themselves and reach milestones that they never thought were possible!

In addition to being a Strength and Fitness coach, I am a Precision Nutrition Level 1 Certified nutrition coach. I found so much value in seeking help with my nutrition during my fitness journey that my desire to help others with their nutrition became a priority for me. My goal is to help people live a healthy lifestyle with a sustainable approach to nutrition that allows them to reach their goals.

Prior to CrossFit, I played soccer for 17 years and finished my career as a college athlete in 2014. I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Psychology, Communications, and English and then earned my Master’s in Business Administration.

Outside of the gym, I love spending my time outside (in the sun) or reading a good book. I enjoy hiking, backpacking, and most water activities! Most importantly, I like to spend quality time with my family and friends.

I found CrossFit in December of 2012 and joined CFI that following summer. Initially, CrossFit filled a void that was left after concluding my time as a high school athlete. I loved the daily challenge and the idea of constantly having something to work on. I have been doing CrossFit for almost 7 years now. I have experience in competitive level training as well as two years of focused and competitive training in the sport of Olympic Weightlifting.

I have a Bachelors of Science in Human Physiology from the University of Oregon and spent 6 terms teaching and assisting in the human cadaver lab. Coaching and teaching has always been a passion of mine, so coaching CrossFit came as a natural progression to my curiosity and desire to learn and pass that knowledge onto others. Another motivating factor that pushes me in my coaching is the ongoing problem of sickness in our country with regards to chronic disease and unhealthy lifestyle. Coaching is my way of contributing to my community in hopes of improving it one squat at a time.

As a part of the Intensify coaching staff, I hope to continue to bring value to everyone I work with! Outside of the gym you will likely find me spending time with those closest to me, cheering on my favorite sports teams, and maybe mixing a cocktail or two in the process.

I look forward to working with each and every one of you as you start your journey towards health and fitness!

Starting CrossFit in 2016 was one of the best things I have done for myself. From what I have learned doing CrossFit I am not just a better athlete, but a better husband, father and person. Knowing the impact it had on my life, I felt drawn to share that life-changing experience with others. Coaching felt like a natural part of that progression and in 2018 I became member of the Intensify coaching staff. I love the opportunity to work with people who want to be better and do better. Being able to give something back to my community is a huge reason why I love coaching.

Outside the gym I enjoy camping and playing soccer and basketball. I also do some gardening, but most of my time is spent helping raise my one year old son!

I would consider myself a life-long athlete. Mostly through playing soccer from the age of 3, and continuing into a collegiate career. I started training at Intensify and immediately fell in love with Crossfit and its community. After training at Intensify as an athlete for two years, I wanted to become a more involved member of the community. Becoming a coach and having the opportunity to share my love for fitness and healthy lifestyle is something that I truly enjoy.

When I’m not at the gym, I’m usually off doing something active. I still love playing soccer, as well as running, biking and swimming. When I’m not being physically active, I enjoy reading and movie nights.

Coach Matt grew up playing hockey in Ontario and Minnesota. His 25+ year hockey career closely came to an end as his passion and love for CrossFit grew. Matt started CrossFitting at CFI in October of 2012 and joined the coaching staff in January of 2017. His favorite part of being a trainer is watching athletes grow in confidence and perform a movement that was once considered impossible, and of course the high fives at the end of WOD’s!!

Coach Jan joined CFI in 2013 and fell in love with the methodology and camaraderie of the CrossFit community. As a competitive swimmer and an avid downhill skier in her schooldays, she was not unfamiliar with exercise, but was struggling to find a program that would support her health and well-being yet still fit into a very busy work schedule. She found it at CFI.

Coach Jan is strongly motivated to support any athlete, or potential athlete, looking to join this community, regardless of fitness level, body shape, experience, or age. We are here to support your goals.

My love for living an active lifestyle began early in my life as a young athlete, playing soccer and competing in track as a 4 year varsity sprinter. I have a great love for the sport of track and field, and still enjoy running.

My role as a coach started 20 years ago, coaching all 4 of my children in soccer, basketball and track. Over the years of coaching and cheering on my kids, I’ve embraced the sports mom role and love it! Stepping away from coaching to focus on my family business, I realized just how much I loved and missed coaching.

This lead me to renew my love for coaching with the phenomenal coaches and athletes and Intensify and I could not be more excited to share my love! I value the connection with the members as much as providing positive coaching. The phrase “Progression not Perfection” is something I believe in and try to instill in every athlete I work with.

Coach Brooke has been an athlete her whole life. She is also a proud vet of the United States Army. She found her passion in CrossFit at CrossFit Intensify. She quickly became one of CFI’s most competitive female athletes and began coaching shortly thereafter. She especially loves learning how to improve in her own movement and coaching beginners to help set them on a path to success. When she’s not training or coaching CrossFit, she’s a proud mom and manager at the Spine Surgery Center of Eugene.
