Sam Sanchez

Crossfit Trainer and Nutrition Coach


My Crossfit journey began in 2015 while trying to lose weight after delivering my 3rd child. I was so inspired by my coaches that I eventually decided to pursue training others as a career. In 2017, I became an ACE Certified Health Coach and enrolled at the National Personal Training Institute here in Colorado Springs. While attending school, I became a Crossfit Level 1 Trainer and USA Weightlifting Sports Performance Coach. In July 2018, I graduated with Honors from NPTI and became a Certified Personal Trainer. I also competed in my very first weightlifting competition at the Rocky Mountain State Games so, needless to say, 2018 was a big year.

Prior to becoming a trainer, I worked in many aspects of healthcare (medical billing, EMT-B, Ortho Tech, etc.) as well as the Colorado State Patrol as an Administrative Assistant. I am a 14 year veteran of the Oklahoma and Colorado National Guard with 2 tours of duty to Iraq. I have been married for 12 years to my husband, Rusty, and have 3 beautiful children.
