Certified Coaches


Dave Eaton

is a Level 1 Certified CrossFit coach. I have been CrossFtting since October of 2009 and this has become a passion of mine. I join Leiftime Fitness and trained with them along with garage training at home. I quickly discovered that this is something that I love and something I wanted to share with others. I knew it would take time to learn the movements and that it would take time to get to where I needed to be physically to be an example of how CrossFit can change someone. I was level 1 certified in late 2011 and in the beginning of 2012 I began training others. I quickly had a lot of people in my garage and I knew I needed to take this to the next level. Join us and we will help you discover what you are capable of, like I have. This is a lot of fun!!!

Mike Klintberg

Mike Klintberg is a Level 1 Crossfit Coach.  Mike was one of the first people that walked through the doors here at Build Up when we first opened.  His excitement was not contained at the fact that a CrossFit location has opened so close to house and he has been nearly every day since.  After a year of learning everything he could about CrossFit he had a desire to get certified and coach.  Mikes passion for CrossFit and for Build Up can not be measured.  His willingness to do anything and everything to help members progress is evident in his daily coaching.


Geoff Turley

Geoff Turley is a Level 1 CrossFit coach.  He was born in Mesa and has always been very active in sports; swimming, football, wrestling, baseball, anything that needed a competitor/player.  Geoff started CrossFitting in 2008, pulling a Workout of the Day (WOD) off the internet and dragging anyone he could out into the backyard or to the nearest retention basin to complete a WOD.  Geoff has always felt compelled to be prepared for any situation so the functional movements of CrossFit fell right inline with his “prepper” personality.  He loves that CrossFit can be scaled for any fitness level and that it helps strengthen the entire body with WODs that are varied everyday. He loves working with people and helping them meet their goals.  Geoff is a firefighter/paramedic and enjoys camping, hiking, snowboarding and finding new places to explore with his family.








Kristi Rogers

is a Level 1 Certified CrossFit coach. She was born in Phoenix and from the age of 6-18 she played tennis and softball. Unlike her husband Ricky she did not enjoy the competition. She loved playing but she wanted Everyone to “WIN”, no losers. After high school, Kristi moved to Utah for school and worked with a trainer at a gym. She really enjoyed lifting weights but it took too much time to get in her cardio and lifting when trying to excel in school. After marriage and 5 kids she found CrossFit. She enjoyed the sense of community and the only true competition was with yourself. She has found that CrossFit gives her what she likes, everyone can win.

 B.C. Smith

B.C. Smith is a Level 1 certified CrossFit Coach and he caught the CrossFit fever a little over 3 years ago out of Dave Eaton’s garage.  After struggling with air squats and PVC pass throughs for the first 3 months, B.C. found his inner athlete that he hadn’t been in touch with since high school.  He enjoys working out, teaching others the things he’s learned over the last 3 years and mostly watching progress while they sweat together.  B.C. has 3 kids that he loves spending time with and enjoys and passes his time doing all things related to fitness, sailing, and other entrepreneurial ventures.
