Aaron was born and raised in Norman, OK and graduated from the University of Oklahoma with a Bachelor of Architecture degree in 2002. “Growing up I was never athletically gifted, but enjoyed being active and playing sports.” During college, Aaron was a member of the University of Oklahoma Crew, and rowed for OU for 2 seasons, competing in both 2000m and 5000m races and gaining his first experience with a Strength & Conditioning program. After college, running replaced rowing and he competed in several 5k, 15k, half marathons, and completed a full marathon in 2006. Since and early age he has been an avid hiker and outdoor enthusiast, and in 2008, he took 5 months to hike the 2,175-mile long Appalachian Trail, starting in Georgia and finishing in Maine.

“I started CrossFit in a friend’s garage in 2007, and was quickly hooked. Aaron has been the owner and head trainer at CrossFit 405 in Oklahoma City since April 2011. “I always tell anyone that will listen, I may be biased, but I think we have the best community of CrossFitter’s around at 405! “My passion for coaching has continued to grow over the last 5 years. Being able to give my clients the tools to succeed and meet their Fitness goals energizes me everyday. Health and Fitness mean different things to different people and everyone has a journey and that is something we understand when you walk through our doors. Making that journey a fun and successful one is what we strive for at 405. I want to help you become the absolute best version of yourself.”

    Ryan Pratt
    Coach

    -CrossFit Level 1 Trainer (CF-L1)
    -CrossFit Gymnastics

    Ryan attended high school in Michigan and earned his bachelor’s degree in Packaging Engineering from Michigan State University.During his formative years, Ryan played virtually every sport you can imagine—baseball, football, track and field, ice and roller hockey, golf,snowboarding, and he was a 2-year Co-Captain on the Michigan State Rugby team.  “I’ve always loved the camaraderie and ‘shared suffering’ of team sports, and after college, I was never able to really find that and tap into the same feeling I had about activity and fitness as a younger person.”

    After college, Ryan moved to Chicago and worked as an engineer for about 6 years.  “I fell on and off the fitness bandwagon more times than I can count.  I would decide I needed to get in shape, find some fad diet, and go to the gym to run on a treadmill and lift weights without having any idea on what I was doing.”  Ryan then moved to Colorado to pursue his M.B.A. in sports and entertainment management, but…really just to snowboard 150days a year.  Shortly after moving to Oklahoma, Ryan drove past aCrossFit box, wondered what it was, and did some research.  “I was immediately intrigued by CrossFit—it spoke to everything I had been lacking since college. Someone told me what to do and how to do it safely, but more importantly, there was a team and competitive atmosphere.

    But, it was still a year before I was brave enough to walk in the door and give it a shot, and thank God I did.  It’s where I’ve found my true calling.” Ryan has been participating in CrossFit for 3years and coaching for 2.“I love to talk about and teach the methodologies of CrossFit and ho wit can better your life in any number of ways.  It’s not about being the best or the fastest; it’s about YOU being better than YOU were a day ago or, a week ago, or 5 years ago.

    I get more joy in seeing and helping others reach their goals than I do in my own accomplishments. Nothing makes me happier than seeing a person who has worked hard and achieved something they never thought they could do."

    Joshua Groves has been an active part of the CrossFit community since 2008, when he discovered CrossFit while looking for ways to streamline strength and endurance training. At the time, Joshua was racing cross-country mountain bikes and spending umpteen hours training.  Implementing CrossFit allowed him to reduce his total hours of training while still improving overall fitness and performance on the bike.  Using the gains he picked up from CrossFit, he raced his way to a fourth-place finish at the USAC National Championships in 2009.

    In late 2009, Joshua got certified as a L1 trainer and hasn't looked back since.  His passions for fitness have waned from focusing exclusively on competition and are, currently, more focused on helping others to have a better quality of life while developing healthy movement and establishing long-term behavior modification that puts them on the path to a more enjoyable life.  However, he still loves to program for sport performance and loves to see his athletes thrive.

    In addition to his passions for fitness, Joshua is also a full-time employee of the University of Oklahoma, where he works in the Office of Graduate Admissions.  At the university, Joshua is able to give back to his alma mater, where he obtained a Bachelor of Science with a focus in Health and Exercise Science, and help develop a state that is more educated, informed, and open to discussion for new ideas.

    In the interest of always learning more, Joshua is currently pursuing a level one certification with Precision Nutrition.  He hopes to use this to improve his service to clients, offering one more tool to pursue health and fitness.

     

    Joshua lives in Norman with his wife and three cats.  He enjoys being outside, CrossFitting, classic cars, coffee, and puns.
