COACH / CO-OWNER
Brian spent almost 10 years as a law enforcement officer before deciding to make his passion for fitness into a career.

His passion is derived from helping others achieve their fitness goals. "Seeing a person achieve what they thought impossible is one of the best feelings as a coach or trainer you can experience."

BRIAN SCHOPPE



COACH / CO-OWNER
Brian was born and raised on the Texas coast and moved to College Station to attend Texas A&M University in 1999. He loved the community so much that he chose to make his home here, settling down with his wife, Ginna, and raising their two children, Laelia and Kyle. After graduating from A&M, Brian tried a few different career paths from restaurant/bar management to working for the City of College Station. It wasn’t until he made his own health a priority that Brian discovered his passion for fitness. At the heaviest point in Brian’s life, he topped the scales at well over 300 pounds. Being that he was only in his mid 20’s, Brian chose to make a change. He worked diligently to lose over 130 pounds, on his own, before seeking help at a local gym to learn how to exercise and diet properly to look and feel the way he wanted. Fortunately for Brian, the young man that would coach and train him introduced him to CrossFit. After hearing Brian’s story and seeing his passion for fitness and helping others, the owner of the gym convinced Brian to learn how to train clients and coach classes so that he could help others make positive changes in their lifestyles. Starting out only part time, still working for the city, it did not take long for Brian to decide to make fitness his new career path. Brian has been coaching classes and working with individual’s full time now for five years. Brian is a CF L-1 trainer who is hoping to continue to grow as coach and earn CF L-2 and eventually CF L-3 certifications. After realizing that the CrossFit methodology was the absolute best path, Brian struck out with his two brothers, Brian Healy and Terrance Smith, to open and operate Sawed-Off CrossFit.

JONATHAN ORTIZ


COACH
Jonathan was raised in Nevada, TX where he spent most of his early life. During 2012 he moved to Bryan, TX where he started to pursue a bachelors degree at Texas A&M in Allied health, hoping to attend a Physical Therapy Graduate School after graduating in 2017. Jonathan has always had a passion for fitness and the benefits someone can persevere through effective exercise. He's been a CrossFit athlete since 2014, and enjoys the fact that everything is measurable when it comes to how well you perform a workout. His specialty in CrossFit lies within Olympic Weightlifting which includes gearing an athlete towards a competitive CrossFit environment. Jonathan's experience comes from years of training to be a competitive athlete. He was also apart of the Texas A&M Weightlifting team for a short period of time. "CrossFit is amazing to me because no matter how old or young, big or small, unfit or fit, you can still increase your fitness. Knowing that alone is extremely motivating. The culture of CrossFit defies the stigma of just going to workout at any old gym. In all the sports I've played, CrossFit does not just praise the fist person to finish, but actively motivates everyone to finish the workout. It's a sport that promotes education, patience, and hard work through an immeasurable amount of exercises to accomplish ones goal, to be ready for any situation that life throws at you. Watching a person go through vigorous training, and realizing their potential is magnificent. I adore this sport, and my CrossFit community.
