Rachel Thompson

Director of Operations
I remember my passion for fitness starting as young as 14 years old; when I walked into a Gold’s Gym for the first time. Most of my adult fitness life was spent in traditional style gyms, where I would workout anywhere from 45mins to 3 hours, 4-6 days a week. During this time, I only made a few gym friends, spent most of my time with my headphones on; isolated and quite frankly bored. I had my routine, my schedule, and my independent workouts but not only was I bored, I wasn’t seeing great results.

Then in August 2012, it happened, a break from the cycle. Once I found Crossfit, I knew I had found not only my passion but my fitness home and a second family. Every WOD leaves me wanting more, knowing I can do more and having a community standing behind me the whole way. CrossFit is more than just a gym. It only took me ONE year of attending classes to realize I wanted to make CrossFit a bigger part of my life. In August 2013, I quit my job and took my love for Crossfit to the next level by becoming a Level 1 Coach. In addition to coaching, I have helped open a brand-new box, managed a box for over 4 years, remodel and expanded a box, have organized as well as participated in several Paleo and fitness Challenges, performed in the Crosfit Games’ Opens, completed 3 half-marathons, competed in a tough mudder, all while training under some of the best Crossfit Coaches. I believe fitness should be a well-rounded sport and as long as you are moving I’m happy!
I have the CrossFit Level 1 Certificate, CrossFit Level 2 Certificate, CrossFit Kid Certificate, CrossFit Gymnastic Certificate, and USA WeightLifting Certificate.

Fitness is my passion, Crossfit is my lifestyle. 😊

Mason Consoli

Coaching is my paradise. I have been involved in coaching one way or another with different forms of exercise since I was 16 years old. I began just training family members at a local power lifting/body building gym in Virginia Beach. Then as I moved on to college, I trained friends, dorm neighbors, and outside clients. After college I found Crossfit and I have enjoyed the constant gaining of knowledge that it offers, and also the perks of becoming stronger, faster, more efficient in everyday activities. After about 6 months of CrossFit, I got my Level 1 training certificate and immediately started coaching. I soon became the manager and a head coach of a box. I was fortunate enough to coach along side two of the best coaches I have ever met, and learned so much from both of them. From Crossfit I became a big fan of Olympic lifting. I began studying and then had the opportunity to work in the same building as Olympians and Olympic lifting coaches--Literally, the best in America. I was able to pick their brains, watch their meets and workout with them. Taking classes with these individuals was an amazing experience. I took multiple non-certified Olympic lifting classes and also got a certificate in Crossfit Football, which broadened my horizons much further than I expected, because of their focus of explosive movements. What I enjoy the most about coaching at Rock Life Crossfit is giving people cues, tips, suggestions, and watching them gain from it. Seeing a smile on a members face and knowing I helped them reach a goal is my ultimate reward as a coach. If you have any doubts as to your abilities in fitness, please understand that we are all in this because we enjoy it as a challenge. Come speak to one of the coaches here, and we will help you feel at home and comfortable in the environment. Everyone is challenged in their own ways each day as they walk into the gym. The best part is that we all want to see each other do better, and reach those goals... together as a community. We are all here to cheer each other on. Looking forward to meeting you soon!

Lauren Blanks

I was never very active growing up and had trouble finding a fitness program that gave me the results to keep me interested. The excuses and reasons why I'd never be in shape kept piling up--as did the pounds! When I found CrossFit back in 2012, something in me came alive and after I (barely) made it though my first workout, I knew that I wanted more! Eight years later, I can honestly say that CrossFit has improved my strength, stamina, and life for the better. CrossFit became such a big part of my life that I knew I wanted to be a coach and have others see the fire that could be ignited within themselves. I love to see people come into the gym and accomplish things they never thought they would be able to. Inevitably, this confidence and desire to succeed carries over into multiple facets of every athlete's lives. CrossFit has helped me complete multiple mud runs, trail and road races, local competitions, and helps me be generally better at life. It also inspired me to dive really deep into nutrition and how we can use it not only to fuel our bodies in the most optimal way, but sustain our health to live our best lives.

I truly believe that CrossFit goes beyond fitness and is a way of life that can benefit everyone. I am the epitome of "if I can do it, anyone can!" As one of your coaches, I want to harness your strengths, attack your weaknesses and help you (safely) push past your comfort zone. Rock Life CrossFit--Come for the sweat, stay for the awesome community! :)

Andrea Myers

I grew up in Wisconsin on the St Croix river. When I graduated High School I went into the Coast Guard and served for 4 years. Bobby and I met in California and were friends for a long time then started dating. We got married September 2013 so almost 6 years! We then moved to Coos Bay Oregon in 2013 I became a Dispatcher for the ambulance company and bobby still worked for the Coast Guard as a Surfman. we love to go camping, surf, hike, mountain bike, and sailing. Bobby started CrossFit in fall 2016 with a buddy of his in the CG. Hayden came June 2017 2 days after Bobby got out of the CG after 10 years of service. We moved across the country in July 2017 to Brunswick Georgia. That's where I started CrossFit.  We then moved to St Thomas April 2018 and have had a blast enjoying island living and showing Hayden all the stuff we love to do. 

Bobby Myers

I discovered CrossFit in the Fall of 2016 through a good friend of mine while I was in the Coast Guard.  I still remember asking him, ” What’s a snatch again?” and ”a Clean?” as he would try to explain the workout to me.  We were stationed in the Pacific Northwest far from any CrossFit gyms so we did our best to make do with what we had.  Shortly after CrossFit became a passion.  I would anxiously wait for the programming we were following to release the next day’s workout at 8 p.m.  I left the Coast Guard after 10 years of service for a career as a First Responder when I joined my first CrossFit gym as well as introduced my wife to CrossFit in Brunswick Georgia.  The community of the members and the mentorship of the coaches further deepened my passion for CrossFit.  I then moved to the Virgin Islands. We quickly found a CrossFit Gym that had an awesome community and prenominal coaches.  After 3 years of CrossFit I aimed to obtain my Level 1 CrossFit Trainer Certification and was given the opportunity to Coach.  I enjoy coaching for it allows me to play a small role to make a huge impact on people’s everyday life.  For 1 hour a day I can guide folks through a WOD allowing them to escape their day to day stressors and drastically improve their overall health and well-being.  I enjoy seeing the smile of accomplishment on others faces as they achieve feats they didn’t think they were capable of.
