The Team

Chris Elmore


Chris is an endurance athlete with over 20 years of competitive swimming experience and 8 years of running and triathlon training, racing and coaching experience. He has competed in endurance events of all distances including Ironman Coeur D’Alene, Ironman Lake Placid, Ironman Arizona, World’s Toughest Mudder and Transrockies Run. Chris began training with CrossFit in 2008 when he realized that the years of long slow distance (LSD) training commonly practiced by most endurance athletes had significantly decreased his muscle mass, strength and power.

 David Montano

Creative Director / Director of Production

David was born in Long Beach, California, and credits his passion for design to drawing gobs of architectural structures as a kid. He ventured into his first business at 22 specializing in printing, graphic design, and marketing. When he’s not developing the visual presentation of our content he’s a father to three “awesome people” and searching for excitement somewhere around the globe: riding dirt bikes, mountain biking, skiing, or boating. Eons ago, he thrived competing in biathalon, triathalon, 5K, and 10K events.

Geoff Smith


Geoff started CrossFit in 2010 as a way to get back in shape after “retiring” from adult rec-league soccer. Always ready to try something new, he signed-up for the fundamentals class at CrossFit Brea, and it was love at first burpee. That first day lead to many other first days conquering Olympic lifts and chalking up PRs. He is constantly testing his training outside of the gym.
