Meet Our Coaches

Amy Lease, Head Coach, CF-L1

I started CrossFit in 2010 while attending Liberty University for my undergraduate degree. After graduation, I continued CrossFit wherever life placed me on the east coast. My husband and I moved to North Carolina in 2014, and it wasn't until 2016 that I decided it was time to take fitness to the next level and turn it into a career. I earned my CrossFit Level 1 in May, and am currently completing my Health and Fitness Science Associates degree from Wake Tech. I am passionate about seeing people's lives transformed by fitness, and I believe CrossFit is the answer for anyone willing to work hard and have fun while doing it.

It was February 2009 when I first started at Triangle CrossFit. Previously, I had been training for triathlons but was beginning to get bored with that.  CrossFit was the missing link to the kind of applicable fitness I was looking for.  In April 2011, I received my level 1, and began coaching soon after. I have also attended the CrossFit Mobility and Goal Setting Coaches Seminars. Outside of CrossFit, I love hiking, paddling, and participating in the occasional race or CrossFit competition.

Nick Doyle, CF-L1

I have been interested in sports and  fitness for most of my life, and graduated from UNC with a B.S. in  Exercise and Sports Science. I began CrossFit in 2012 and was blown  away by what the human body was capable of, and how quickly those changes became evident. I obtained my Level 1 in 2015 and love seeing the positive affect that CrossFit has on people's health and lives in general. Efficient movement equals stronger, faster, and safer movement. 

Travis Warburton, CF-L1

My interest for physical activity in sports began at an early age. Throughout school, I was involved in football, baseball and track. After many years of lifting weights at a globo gym I was introduced to CrossFit, WOW! In July 2012, I joined the CrossFit community and felt the positive energy. This led me to truly understand the philosophy of CrossFit and earn my CrossFit Level 1 in August 2017.
