BRIAN SCHOPPE

COACH

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.
