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.”

    Joey Borelli
    Manager/Head Coach
    • CrossFit Level 1 Coach

    Joey started CrossFit to try something new. “I was tired and bored of the regular gym routine. Once I walked into 405 I was hooked. I saw it as a way to compete again since I have grown up playing soccer and basketball.

    After that first class that I took in the heat of the summer, I was sweating from head to toe, breathing heavy and knew I had to come back for more.” That was 3 years ago. Now, CrossFit means more to Joey than just a workout. “ It's my stress reliever, it's my home away from home.“

    Joey’s passion for coaching starts with his drive to help teach and motivate everyone on a daily basis. “I enjoy seeing results of every member who steps in the gym. Coaching is very rewarding now that I am helping develop our clients here at CrossFit 405.”

    Joey has competed in several local CrossFit events over the years and has now turned to running CrossFit events and judging over the past few years as well. Look for him to be leading the judges group at most local events here in OKC.

    Alex Ashoff
    Coach
    • Crossfit Level 1 Certification
    • Crossroads Adaptive Athlete Coaching Certification

    Alex grew up in Mount Airy, Maryland, a small railroad town near Baltimore and Washington DC. After attending school in Pittsburgh for 6 years, he moved to OKC where he's completing his Prosthetic Residency at the OKC Veterans Affairs Center.

    When he's not building and fitting artificial limbs for amputees, Alex enjoys hiking and pretty much anything outside. In addition to going on adventures with his fiance and his Golden Retriever, he's passionate about cooking most of their meals to make sure they're eating right.

    After completing a bicycle excursion in 2013 to raise money for his friend, a Crossfit coach, who had been in a severe car accident, the owner of his friend's box let him train for free. After that, Alex was hooked. Alex has been coaching for 2 and a half years, and joined the Crossfit 405 family in 2016.

    Some of his proudest moments have been helping athletes accomplish new things, "whether it's getting that first muscle up or finally getting double unders." He's especially proud of the adaptive athletes he gets to coach, "these athletes present various challenges in their programming and helping them achieve their  fitness goals is very rewarding."

    For those considering Crossfit, his best advice is two-fold, "don't be intimidated, Crossfit is infinitely scalable and Crossfit 405 has some of the best coaches I've ever worked with. Second, if you are an experienced athlete, I'd say leave your ego at the door. Be open to learning and start slow, master the fundamentals. It will serve you better in the long run."

    Ore Adesina
    Assistant Coach | Photography
    • CrossFit Level 1 Coach
    • USAW Sports Performance Coach

    Looking for something that required more engagement and more of a challenge than the group exercise classes offered at her local gym, Ore started researching different exercise methodologies. She learned about CrossFit from her research, and took the plunge in 2012 by joining a local CrossFit gym near her home.

    She eventually ended up at CrossFit 405. She loves the knowledgeable staff, close knit community and workouts that get her out of her comfort zone and provide lasting results. After 3 years as a member, she wanted to take the knowledge that she had learned over the years to help others achieve their goals, and obtained her Level 1 CrossFit Certification in 2014.

    Ore has competed in local competitions, but her real passions are powerlifting and weightlifting. Ore hopes to share her passion for CrossFit and lifting heavy things with others. You can usually find her near the squat rack or with a barbell and plates practicing Olympic lifts.

    Ore also has a passion for photography, so you will see her behind a camera, taking action shots of our CrossFit 405 members during workouts. When she is not at the gym, she is keeping our fitness community in the know as our social media director and whipping up delicious recipes for her clean eating blog Bacon Wrapped Barbells (http://bacon-wrappedbarbells.com).

    • Crossfit Endurance

    Growing up in Oklahoma City, Ryan attended Oklahoma State University where he received a degree in Marketing  and has been working in the digital marketing arena for various banks, credit unions, non-profits, and Universities since 2007.

    Ryan is truly an outdoorsman. In 2014, he rode his bicycle from Vancouver to San Francisco, camping and cycling all the way down the Pacific Coast.

    In 2011, Ryan first started Crossfit as a member and then became a coach in 2012. He joined the Crossfit405 family and has been a integral part of our coaching staff since May of 2016.

    When asked why he became a coach, he said, "I came from an endurance background, having ran 9 marathons and completed a full Ironman. I had many people help me along the way that I wanted to pay it forward. I was able to create my own CrossFit Endurance class and have since have had a hand in helping over a hundred people complete some sort of the OKC Marathon course (relay, half and/or full) since my first year as a coach in 2013."

    In addition to training athletes, Ryan loves to see the interaction between the members at the gym. "We all have different personalities and experiences and are in the gym for different reasons yet because we all are there to sweat on purpose, everyone is able to bond in some way. I also really enjoy being a part of someone's fitness journey, sharing my knowledge with people in hopes that they reach their goals."

    When asked for advice to those considering Crossfit, he says, "Come in and have fun. Don't take it too seriously. It's only working out."
