CJ Studstill


  • CrossFit Level 1 Trainer (CF-L1)


CJ has been a CrossFit Level 1 trainer for 2 years at Steel Monkey CrossFit and is a great example of the multifaceted ways CrossFit can impact peoples’ lives. CJ’s job has kept him moving around the country, and CrossFit has always been there to help him meet new people and develop friendships. CrossFit has also allowed him to continue competing as an adult after playing sports and competing as a kid. 

CJ is a seasoned CrossFitter after having done it for 10 years, but one of the things that he still finds so great about the sport, is it’s infinite scalability. He loves that no matter your level of fitness, CrossFit can be there to keep you active.

When asked why he chooses to coach, CJ stated, “Besides the fact that I love the atmosphere, coaching for me is twofold. First it helps me stay active in the gym and strive to get better each day. Secondly, coaching allows me to help others get better and teach what I have learned or what has worked for me. I am just as excited to see someone putting in the work to get a lift or movement for the first time as I am for myself.” This selflessness is part of what makes CJ such a great coach!

Fun Fact: CJ started playing Cello when he was 3 and he does not love long walks on the beach.
