Ryan Jauch

Owner, Head Coach
CrossFit Level 2 
USAW Sports Performance

Education: B.A. Exercise Science, USAW Sports Performance. Ryan was first introduced to the world of strength and conditioning through wrestling. Wrestling landed Ryan at the University of Northern Iowa where he competed at the division 1 level. Wrestling at Northern Iowa is what ultimately led Ryan to CrossFit.

 

In order to graduate Ryan had to intern at a local gym, he chose to do it a popular local CrossFit box. Seeing the amazing  results that people of all ages and abilities were receiving from participating in CrossFit is the reason why Ryan chose to go down the same path when it comes to training clients.  Ryan's favorite part of coaching CrossFit is seeing someone perform a movement or skill that they never thought would be possible for them.

Fast forward to today, after being introduced to CrossFit, Jordyn is hooked and there is no looking back.

CrossFit has had an amazing impact on Jordyn's life.  From improved self- confidence to having much more energy and an overall greater outlook day to day.  Jordyn is a true believer, and she is now committed to coaching and working with the members to teach them the benefits of CrossFit and the positive impact that weekly routine of exercise can have on their lives.

She believes in pushing members to do their best at any level, but also believes in keeping each day fun and exciting to deliver long-lasting results.

Ilyse Palomo

Coach

CrossFit Level 2

RTY 200

Education: B.S. Early Childhood Education, M.E. Special Education

 

Throughout grade school and high school Ilyse did dance, cheer, and gymnastics. It wasn’t until college that Ilyse began to exercise on her own. At first she began to just run because she wasn’t sure what else to do. She eventually trained for and completed 3 half marathons and 1 full marathon. During this time she also found yoga and still maintains a daily yoga practice. It wasn’t until graduating from college that Ilyse found CrossFit at the suggestion of her father.  

 

Participating in CrossFit was Ilyse’s first exposure to weight training and it was a scary step to take for someone who had never touched a barbell in her life. After gaining some comfort with weight training, she began to realize there was no reason to be scared. She gained confidence and began to push herself more in her strength training. Through CrossFit she realized that she could be strong and your body can do amazing things when you care for it through exercise and nutrition.

 

After experiencing such a powerful and positive life change through CrossFit, Ilyse wanted to share her knowledge and help other people find positive changes in their own lives as well. Coaching allows Ilyse a space to truly help people and learn each day as she receives feedback from the CrossFit MFC family. She looks at each class as an opportunity to brighten someone’s day, help someone learn something new about themselves, and to learn something new about herself in turn.

Matt Shafer

Coach

CrossFit Level 1

Matt grew up the youngest of  five brothers which made him no stranger to a life of competition. He began his competitive career wrestling and playing football. Matt's senior year of high school he qualified for the state tournament. This left him the option to go to school to wrestle or continue working. Matt chose to continue working.

During this time Matt got most of his physical training through work and various activities. He fulfilled his competitive nature through local volleyball and softball leagues.

Matt started crossfit as a member that initially was not sure his body would be able to handle these styles of workouts. Years of manual labor had taken its toll on his body and he had frequent problems with his back and knees. After about 8 months of training Matt found his new passion. He was no longer in pain and was stronger than he has ever felt in his entire life. He was instantly all in. 

Matt now enjoys sharing his passion with the members at MFC. When he is not building custom cabinets he is either at MFC training or coaching. Matt aspires to one day compete in the masters division at the Crossfit games.
