Art Campos

Owner/Coach

Owner Art Campos Jr. has been Crossfitting since 2009. He studied martial arts for 20 years and discovered CrossFit on his third combat rotation in Afghanistan with his Fire Team Leader. ``We used to do workouts in the middle of the day, and our platform was a baggage pallet,`` he says. ``I loved every minute of it, and the rest is history.``

Art joined the military at 18 years old and served 10 years in 2nd Ranger Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment, in every capacity from Rifleman to Weapons Squad Leader to Sniper Section Leader. He accumulated over 40 months in combat across 10 deployments in support of the Global War on Terrorism.

Currently, Art is serving in the Air Force (R) as an Air Force Security Forces Fire Team Leader, and is a recent graduate of the Basic Law Enforcement Academy. He works as a Police Officer for a local police department.

While Art is passionate about CrossFit, serving his country and community, and loves shooting and time with his son, Dominic, is his favorite pastime. He also enjoys his pups, Daisy and Dmitri (named after Klokov, of course).

I started doing CrossFit May of 2014 after my husband proposed and I realized I needed to get in shape for the wedding. My roommate was obsessed with CrossFit and finally convinced me to try out a class. My husband and I joined the next day! I love CrossFit and feeling strong. I was not very athletic growing up so feeling in shape is so fun.

I got my CF Level-1 July of 2018 and have fallen in love with coaching our amazing members at Iron Legacy Fitness.

I am a Registered Dental Hygienist and my husband, Caleb, is an officer in the Army. We have two dogs, Rainier and Louie, who are often hanging around the gym. We travel around with the Army a lot, but hope to get back to family in Virginia at some point!

Jaquelyn Calton

Coach

How did you start CrossFit?
I started CrossFit 7 years ago when a client of mine at the time was opening Puyallup CrossFit at the Edge and suggested I come check it out. CrossFit had been something I was hearing and seeing more of and wanted to see what the hype was about. I tried it and was hooked!

Fitness goals:
My fitness goals are to be the healthiest version of me, to always grow mentally and physically. To never settle but always strive for more. To be a good example to my kiddos.

Fitness accomplishments:
I would say my biggest fitness accomplishment would be being pregnant for 9 months x2 and was still able to CrossFit daily. It kept me sane, kept me going and definitely made for a quicker recovery. And I can deadlift over double my body weight love me some deads!

Michelle Cordsen

Coach

How did you start doing CrossFit?
I started CrossFit in 2013 after my brother had been crossfitting for over two years and was in the best shape of his life. He kept telling me I would love it—finally I joined and was, of course, hooked from day 1 and have never looked back.

Do you do any other sports?
I have played all kinds of sports forever but CrossFit is the one that has stuck in adulthood…other than hiking. Does hiking count? LOL.

I love that this place feels like home and that the people are like family. There’s always something new to learn and always someone willing and able to teach it.

Evangelyn Major

Coach/IronKidz

How did you start doing CrossFit?
Embarrassing for me, but I was very depressed after having second baby and moving to a new duty station where I didn’t know anyone. My husband suggested I try Crossfit since I had talked about it so much when I was pregnant. I am thankful he pushed me to go to one whole weeks worth of classes before I was allowed to cross it off my list. It only took two classes to realize how much I was enjoying it. The community and support I have experienced has been amazing.

How long have you been doing CrossFit?
Five years and counting

Do you do any other sports?
Does hiking and being outdoors count? I enjoy being in nature whether on the water or in the woods. Seeing my kids appreciate the beauty around us makes it worth it.

I want to one day be able to do pull ups/muscle ups.
Dial in my nutrition, I want to learn more and use it to fuel my fitness.

Catie Adams-Campos

Administrator/Coach

In early 2015, I started CrossFit here at the young age of 38, having never touched a barbell. Without exaggeration, it changed my life. Being pushed outside my comfort zone, time and again, getting comfortable with being uncomfortable, accomplishing goals I would never have considered after 40 - it has all challenged and grown me physically, mentally and emotionally. Age truly is not a factor...I invited my dad to try CrossFit in 2018 on his 67th birthday, and he has been my workout partner ever since! My two teenage daughters are yet to be convinced, although they will still join me climbing and thrift shopping in my spare time.

I earned the CrossFit Level 1 Trainer certification in October 2019, and have completed the CrossFit courses in Judging, Scaling, Spot the Flaw, Running, Dumbbells, and Lesson Planning. I am an educator at heart. I taught elementary school out of college, and then enjoyed a career as a corporate trainer before leaving the business world to run the office for my family construction company. My love for teaching never faded and it’s a privilege to pay it forward and serve the members here at my happy place.

Along with fitness, I highly value clean nutrition. How we fuel our bodies determines how well our machine runs, in every aspect. I have found success with Paleo, Primal and Whole30 guidelines for many years. I practice meditation and can attest to the benefits of mindfulness in physical and mental health. I also believe tacos and cheesecake are nourishment for the soul!

Val Kelly

Coach

Hi! My name is Val. I’ve been doing Crossfit for over a decade...oh my how time flies. My Crossfit journey began after a big weight gain and knee surgery. From the first class I was hooked. Hard work, dedication, and a supportive community helped me lose about 80 pounds and get full range of motion back in my knees. About four years ago, I got my Level 1 Crossfit certification and have been enjoying coaching ever since. I consider it an honor to be part of other people’s fitness journeys.

Outside the gym, I enjoy spending time with my wife and our two adorable dogs. I also love spending time with my family and friends, especially my adorable nieces and nephews! I’m a huge Seattle Storm fan and go to as many games possible. To share a little secret...I will admit to watching some trashy television shows, but I’m not bold enough to name them.

After moving out to Puyallup about two years ago, I found my way to ILF. My favorite thing about ILF is the community. Everyone is so friendly and welcoming. I also love how supportive the ILF community is, because everyone’s accomplishments are celebrated!

Wayne Dew

Coach

Bio coming soon!

How did you start doing CrossFit?
I started doing Crossfit after a deployment in 2006. I started going with my wife who had begun Crossfitting while I was gone. I loved the intensity and the daily challenge, and have been hooked ever since.

Do you do any other sports?
Not currently anything other than Crossfit

Fitness goals:
My goals are mostly to maintain my mobility and continue to learn new skills. My specific goals for this year are to get the handstand walk and bar muscle up.

Fitness accomplishments:
This is a hard one because it is subjective to who you are talking to. Some consider accomplishments as hardware (trophies) where as others see small wins as accomplishments. I am one of those who consider small wins as something to be proud of; like being 49 years old and still being able to do full range of motion squats and other movements.

Certifications:
Crossfit Level 1

Are you married?
For over 25 years

Do you have kids?
Halee (26) and Kayne (24) and my son-in-law Kohner (26)

Do you have pets? Names? Type of pet?
No pets

Do you have a job other than being a coach at ILF?
I am still on Active Duty in the Army and planning to retire in 2021 after 25 years

Favorite quote:
“Be miserable. Or motivate yourself. Whatever has to be done, it’s always your choice” - Wayne Dye

What is something unique about you?
Absolutely nothing
