“We love seeing the changes people make when they join CrossFit Lynchburg. Not just the physical changes, but changes in confidence and they way they feel about themselves. Amanda and I know what people are capable of. Average house moms, dads, and countless “non-athletes” have come to CrossFit Lynchburg and accomplished amazing things. It’s the most rewarding part of owning CrossFit Lynchburg” – Jerrod Ruhl, Owner, CrossFit Lynchburg
CrossFit Lynchburg is owned by Jerrod & Amanda Ruhl. They have owned CrossFit Lynchburg for 5+ years and have a background rich athletics and experience around elite level coaches.
Jerrod Ruhl loved athletics from a young age, playing a variety of sports. While he enjoyed the variety, baseball became his favorite and he eventually acquired enough skill to play at the collegiate level at Liberty University. It was during that time that he was introduced to the world of strength & conditioning. Under the tutelage of Hall of Fame strength coach Dave Williams, Jerrod learned both basic and advanced weightlifting techniques. He credits these years training under Coach Williams for his love of exercise and how to be an excellent strength & conditioning coach. Jerrod’s credentials: CrossFit Level 2, NSCA CSCS, USAW Sports Performance Coach, FMS Level 1.
Amanda Ruhl had a similar background, playing sports of all kinds growing up, but especially having a talent for speed. In college she earned a spot on the Liberty University track team, running the 100m, 200m and 400m races. She too was an athlete under Coach Dave Williams, which also helped forge her love of exercise. Amanda’s credentials: CrossFit Level 1, CrossFit Kids Certified, FMS Level 1.
Together, Jerrod and Amanda have a passion for exercise and for helping people meet their fitness goals. In 2007 they discovered CrossFit, and found it to be the best method for general strength & conditioning. They started coaching people in their garage- friends, relatives, anyone interested in exercising at all was invited over to the garage for “the best workout you’ve ever had”. They also started coaching at CrossFit Lynchburg, helping founder Ryan Marano with group classes. After a couple of years Jerrod and Amanda had the opportunity to buy CrossFit Lynchburg, and more than 5 years later the business is thriving.
Utilizing the CrossFit methodology of fitness and nutrition, they strive to teach functional fitness to anyone willing to work hard and learn. Moms and Dads, grandmothers and grandfathers, Special Forces, expectant mothers, high school and college students, military members, police officers, fire fighters, and regular folks like you and I, can all benefit and be positively impacted by our training regimen.
