Scottie Hubbard

CO-OWNER, CROSSFIT COACH

When Scottie started doing CrossFit, he never intended for it to become such a big part of his life. When he came together with the co-owners of CrossFit Protocol, he knew it was something worth pursuing outside of just as a fitness methodology. He wanted to be a part of building a bigger, better, stronger community. He is passionate about the box, the community, and helping each member improve with each workout they choose to do at CrossFit Protocol.

adam hill

COACH

Head Programmer and CrossFit Coach Adam Hill has so much respect for the people he coaches. “Our members are always willing to learn, listen, and try something new,” he says. “They are never afraid to step outside their comfort zone in order to become a better athlete.”

Adam got into CrossFit after a rock-climbing accident left him sedentary for two years. He chose CrossFit to get back into shape and, though it was challenging because of his now-fused right ankle, he kept at it and made it work. That was five years ago. His favorite quote is “Let the rough end ride and the slick end slide.”

Michael james

CROSSFIT COACH | aka “big red”

Big Red is a physical education teacher and his passion for instilling others with a lifelong love of fitness and being active is evident. As someone who has little athletic background pre-CrossFit, he believes that too many adults have not been empowered with a can-do attitude when it comes to athletics and fitness. Big Red wants to make sure that the members of CrossFit Protocol find that sense of belief in themselves, their bodies, and their abilities and talents. As an athlete, he enjoys strongman training — odd objects, yokes, stones, sleds, and the like.

kelli staudt

CROSSFIT COACH

Coaching came naturally to Kelli, so much so that the members at a previous box gifted her with money to fund her CrossFit Level 1 certification. When she came to CrossFit Protocol, she immediately found her new fitness family. She feels the community is the best, bar-none. She loves and appreciates every minute she has to spend at CrossFit Protocol, and to have the opportunity to coach the members of this awesome community.
