Scott grew up just down the road in Colfax, WA and currently resides there. While growing up he participated in a variety of organized sports as a youth and eventually settled on playing baseball, basketball and football during his high school years. After high school, Scott went off to play college baseball at Big Bend Community College for two seasons, followed by another two seasons at Central Washington University as a pitcher.
Since his playing days Scott has been heavily involved in the local youth baseball scene, running tournaments, helping at local camps and coaching at Colfax High School for the past four seasons and a total of nine seasons all together. Scott also had spent time coaching and working in the college ranks with Big Bend Community College as a pitching coach and with Washington State University as a graduate assistant.
It was during his time at Washington State where Scott got his first introduction to high intensity training, working out with several of the strength trainers and doing their own daily workouts. From that point on he began doing drop ins at as many of the nearby boxes until he became a full time member of Pullman CrossFit in March of 2015 and has been an active member ever since.
What began as a great way to stay in shape while being able to embrace the competition aspect offered by CrossFit, Scott formed a passion for CrossFit, the Pullman CrossFit community and being able to spread that passion to all those seeking a greater level of fitness.

Cory grew up just north of Spokane Washington in Nine Mile Falls. He came to Pullman to attend WSU where he graduated, with honors, earning a BS in Astrophysics. During his time as a student he worked part-time at the Pullman-Moscow Regional Airport as an Aircraft Rescue Firefighter. Although he loved learning about physics, astronomy, and the inner workings of the universe he decided a career in academia was just not a good fit for him and instead accepted a full-time position at the Airport after graduation. Now he is a Captain for the Airport Fire Department and an Airport Operations Specialist. Fitness has been also been a major component in Cory’s life for at least the last decade. He found CrossFit in 2015 and immediately discovered what his fitness life had been missing up to that point. CrossFit has been the backbone of his pursuit of health and fitness ever since. In 2018 Cory earned his CrossFit Level 1 Trainer Certificate in order to help others pursue health and fitness in their own lives. He also earned a weightlifting specialty certificate in 2019. Cory also strives to be competitive in the sport of CrossFit as well as other fitness competitions and obstacle course races. He is always seeking to better all facets of his physical capacity and ability.
