Sloan McBee

CrossFit Lvl 1

Sloan was a one sports athlete in high school playing football at North Gwinnett. After graduating high school in 2010 his drive for athletic performance didn’t stop there. Quickly after getting a job in Lawrenceville at a transportation company, he joined a Crossfit gym right across the street to offset the long desk hours he was working. Through extensive plyometric and barbell training from high school athletics he quickly caught on to the movements and intensity that Crossfit demands.

After 7 years of Crossfit training, Sloan obtained his CF Level 1 in September of 2017. Earning the CF Level 1 was a something he had wanted to do for several years as coaching and teaching Crossfit’s movements had become one of his passions through seeing the effects that the training methodology had on people in regards to physical change and community/friendship. These inherent traits of the sport of Crossfit are what have helped mold Sloan into the coach and athlete he is today.
