ALex mueller - the boss
Alex has always strived to live a physically active, well rounded lifestyle. She participated in sports all her life including ballet, soccer, and varsity rugby at the University of Victoria. Alex came across CrossFit while rehabbing from a back injury and immediately fell in love with it. The variety of movements and workouts, as well as the camaraderie of the community were infectious. Alex quickly realized the positive affects that CrossFit had on her overall fitness, social life, and well-being and has since strived to provide others with the same positive experience she has had.

Sean Bruce - coach
Prior to coming to the Zone, Sean primarily participated in recreational sports and competed in the occasional triathlon. He considered himself to be in good shape and, like so many other athletes, thought that long distance races, like Ironman and triathlon, produced the fittest athletes. His wife introduced him to CrossFit and he soon realized that there is more to being in shape than long distance cardio. In fact, the completion of his first CrossFit workout , Sean came to the quick realization that this was a sport and lifestyle he wanted to pursue. Since then he has worked hard to become part of the Zone team coaching Classes and Gymnastics.
