Coach Shawn Wilson
Shawn is owner and founder of CrossFit Reflexion.
A multi-sport high school and collegiate athlete (he played football for Southern Oregon University), Shawn developed his passion for coaching, nutrition, and wellness as he experienced the benefits of CrossFit and sound nutrition personally, and for his family and friends. “People don’t believe me when I tell them I was a chunky kid, but it’s true. I vowed I would learn everything I could to become fit and healthy, a journey that continues today.”
Shawn is a firm believer in structured programming centered around strength and power, scaled to the abilities and conditioning of the individual.
“Too many people who get into CrossFit look at how the world’s best are working out and try to copy it. That’s crazy. They just get crushed or injured, worn out, and weaker.”
“If you haven’t PR’d a lift or WOD in a few months something is wrong. As a coach, I can control the programming, but the athlete has to work with me on the nutrition and rest. Like a three legged stool, each component is critical for progress.”
“At CRX, we pride ourselves in intelligent programming, proper nutrition (this doesn’t mean we’re selling you stuff – we believe in whole foods) and rest.”
“I’m so proud of our athletes, they’ve made huge gains, and continue to make them. My job as coach and programmer is to monitor our athletes and make sure they’re making gains and seeing results. This is literally life changing for many people. I’m so thankful for being able to share my passion for wellness and see the differences we’re making in peoples lives.”

Coach Ashley Arney
Ashley has always loved sports and all things competitive. She grew up playing every sport she could and really loved soccer. She went to Oregon State University and graduated with a degree in science education and biology. Her buddies and her stumbled onto CrossFit while deployed as CH47 pilots in Iraq in 2008. She was instantly hooked and has been addicted to CrossFit ever since, coaching most of those years as well. One of Ashley’s favorite parts of coaching is help people reach their full potential and achieving things they didn’t think were possible. As a CrossFit athlete, she loves that you can always find new ways to challenge yourself.
Outside of CrossFit, Ashley loves spending time with her hubby, two kiddos and dog. They love to camp, explore and do sporty things. She also really enjoys coaching youth soccer.
