Lisa

COACH
CrossFit Level 2 Trainer

Lisa has a Community Health degree from St Cloud State University. She has been in the fitness world in some capacity all her life – from a three-sport high school athlete to marathons, duathlons, triathlons, and eventually Ironman. Looking to bring a new aspect to her training, she started her CrossFit journey after finishing the Ironman. Lisa fell in love with the community and the strength she gained, which fueled her passion for helping others. As her youngest son started kindergarten she began coaching CrossFit where she’s been evolving her coaching skills for over eight years.

As her experience and knowledge of what it took to help clients be successful for the long-term grew, she started to look for additional resources to help her clients get the most out of their training. Lisa has continued to pursue coaching education through OPEX and uses their individual program design model with personal training and individual program design client to help them reach their true potential. She’s also currently studying for her CF-L3 which is held by just 1% of CrossFit trainers worldwide. She enjoys both the individualized aspects of coaching clients one on one and the fun and energy of working with our group CrossFit classes. For Lisa, there is nothing more rewarding than joining someone on their fitness journey.

Lisa and her husband have two very active sons. When she is not in the gym, you will find her at various sporting events cheering them on. As a family, they stay active biking, wakeboarding, skiing, and taking the dogs for walks.

Dr. Frikken

COACH
Crossfit Level I Trainer

Dr. Frikken recently graduated from Physical Therapy school in May of 2020 after working to reinvent himself in order to help people become more fit. In addition to coaching, he helps people work their way through injuries in order to stay active. He has actively CrossFitted for most of a decade and he coaches classes through Hybrid Farm St. Cloud. If you are an active fitness practitioner looking for a DPT that “gets” what you do, Dr. Jon now offers Physical Therapy by appointment at Hybrid Farm.

“I originally graduated with a Master’s degree in Construction Management from NDSU in 2009. Searching for more to my career than just a paycheck I found Crossfit in 2012 and worked my way up to becoming a coach. While coaching, many people would come in with various issues such as a hurt shoulder, hip, knee, etc. Instead of simply helping people work around their issue, I chose to change careers, become a physical therapist, and help people reclaim their abilities to enjoy life while pursuing better health.

I enjoy going for walks and hiking with my wife Jessie and dog Kit. I also like to read, so feel free to let me know if you have any book recommendations!”

Nikki

COACH

Nikki’s love for chalk started at age 7 and only grew stronger as she started crossfit in 2018. Nikki spent 7 of her 10 years in gymnastics competing either through USA Gymnastics or the MN State High School League. She started giving back to her sport and coaching in 2005. Nikki has coached toddlers to teens at various levels of ability through community education programs, MN State High School League, and Midwest Amateur Gymnastics Association. With the pandemic, gymnastics coaching was brought to a halt so she decided to venture into coaching in Crossfit. She obtained her Level 1 certificate, with the hopes of helping adults and youth seeking to improve their fitness and gymnastics skills as a CrossFit coach and certified Functional Gymnastics Trainer.

In the day hours, Nikki is a full time social worker assisting elderly in the community. When she isn’t in the gym, she is most likely with her boyfriend and two dogs, Bowser and Draven. In her free time she is likely covered in dirt, saw dust, or paint as she enjoys all things home and landscape DIY.
