Fitness and Gymnastics have been a huge part of Natalie's life. She started gymnastics at the age of 4 and continued through the levels earning a scholarship to the University of Iowa. After two years at the U of I, Natalie transferred to UCLA, one of the top gymnastics and academic schools in the nation. They were the 2007 Pac-10 Champions and made it to the “Super Six” team finals every year at the NCAA National Championship. After graduating with a degree in Psychology, focusing on Health Psychology, Natalie fell into stunt work where she started working on the gymnastics TV show “Make It or Break It” doubling one of the main actresses. She now trains in all stunt areas such as driving, martial arts, gymnastics and continues to work on numerous TV shows. She currently coaches CrossFit Gymnastics classes at DogTown CrossFit in Culver City, CA. Natalie hopes to inspire others to love fitness and gymnastics as much as she does.
After finishing his post secondary education at the age of 23, his passion and talent took him in a very different direction. Sean began his training with very minimal gymnastics experience, to dedicating every moment of his time to researching and learning proper form and technique. His investment in the work organically grew as he completed the NCCP Gymnastics level 1 & 2 and becoming a competitive gymnastics coach. A couple of years later, Sean was accepted into one of the top circus schools in Quebec. Here Sean specializes in two disciplines: Straps (which are like rings) and Hand to Hand (Lifting and throwing a person into handstand). Honoured to be a part of the Crossfit Gymnastics team, Sean is excited to share the knowledge he has gained to help others pursue their gymnastic goals.
Julie Barnes Maurer
Julie Barnes Maurer started her gymnastics career after watching Mary Lou Retton win gold at the 1984 summer Olympics. Unfortunately (or fortunately), she had to attend her first lessons with a broken arm due to monkey bar shenanigans on the playground. The good news is this laid a foundation and appreciation for strength, conditioning and flexibility for the rest of her athletic and coaching career. In 1992 immediately after high school graduation she took her first coaching position as a part time college job. Unable to get the gymnastics out of her blood she would spend the majority of the next 20 years coaching all levels of gymnastics, from toddlers to state champions both men and women. This depth of experience allows Julie to understand the basics of gymnastics movement and have a vision for where strength and skill can lead. Enter CrossFit. In January 2002 Julie walked into her first On Ramp class at Oakland County CrossFit and was hooked. It wasn’t long before friends and owners Andrea and Matt encouraged her to bring her gymnastics knowledge to the box setting her on the path to CrossFit Gymnastics with Jeff Tucker and allowing her to bring her enthusiasm and knowledge to a new and hungry audience. Julie is thrilled and honored to be a part of the CrossFit community and appreciates her good fortune of being able to spread her love of gymnastics!
