BCF CrossFit (Commonly know as "The Farm") represents your gym, coaches, and support group. Whether you choose to receive personal training from us or become a member of our group classes, we pride ourselves in providing quality individual instruction.
Unlike other training services, our goal is to make you as self sufficient and knowledgeable as possible. Our members fall in love with the support and challenge that our classes offer. Our unique setting is much more like a group of friends than a business. The Farm is a lively, fun, and challenging atmosphere that forges elite fitness. No longer will you have to force yourself through the same tedious workouts that you have done repeatedly on the same day of the week for who knows how long.
Our gym members are extended members of our family. We are as passionate about you reaching elite fitness as we are our own kids! The BCF CrossFit family has grown to expect personal attention, intense and effective workouts, nutritional coaching, support from us and our members, fat/weight loss, increase in lean muscle mass, and most importantly RESULTS.
Finally, we love what we do, thus we live fitness each and every day. This is not a job, it is our lifestyle. We practice what we preach! So you can feel comfortable knowing that we have real life experience in applying the methods we teach.
After college, Trevor dabbled with playing professionally in Germany before deciding to hang them up and move onto a new phase in his life. This decision left Trevor with a void in his life, which he tried to fill with traditional weightlifting, men's leagues, etc, but ultimately he found himself bored until he found CrossFit in 2008. CrossFit satisfied that competitive desire to challenge himself both mentally and physically.
Trevor loves the camaraderie that develops with CrossFiters and the respect that develops between the athletes. He believes that becoming a CrossFit athlete does more then just put you in excellent overall shape, it changes your way of life; testing you both mentally and physically everyday, but more importantly giving you a sense of confidence that is undeniable.
For about ten years Bethany was in and out of the gym, dabbling with different fitness programs, but always struggled with the time commitments required away from her family for suspect fitness results. In the Spring of 2012, Bethany fell in love with CrossFit. Her fitness gains have been borderline spectacular, often times out lifting her male counterparts, but even more important to Bethany she had the ability to train with her entire family. She loves the fact that CrossFit is not all about her, but instead something the whole family can enjoy and benefit from.
Through CrossFit, nutrition became Bethany's second passion. First she learned to cook with real food by eating Paleo. Second she learned how to encompass Paleo with the The Zone Diet. Bethany has mastered this nutrition for her and her family, but always geeks out on new ideas and information. The art and the challenge for her was and is cooking for picky kids and while maintaining a crazy lifestyle. Bethany loves to share her knowledge and experience with others, and to aid them in rethinking and restarting their thinking as to what proper nutrition is.
Finally, Bethany is our behind the scene Jedi Master. She coordinates, directs, and is the mastermind behind all of BCF's marketing, apparel, products, events, and social functions at the box. Plus she is the slave labor counterpart to Trevor;)
After having 2 kids, supporting her husband while he went to college Alise became acquainted with an actual gym for the first time. She instantly fell in love with group classes, lifting and running. Alise joined BCF in April of 2014 and realized that everything she was missing was in one place on the farm. She continued to workout during her 4th pregnancy and came back with a new fire under her.
She is our go-to Weightlifter excelling in almost anything she puts her mind too. Alise has become a remote athlete with Eastside Barbell Club in Springfield, Oregon to pursue her love of weightlifting and become a better athlete herself but also to become a better coach at BCF. Since then she has competed at State placing both years, 2019 and 2020. This past April, she competed at her first National Level meet in Orlando Florida placing 2nd, won bronze in the Nike Online American Open, won Best Female Lifter at her most recent local meet, competed in her first Masters Worlds competition virtually placing 7th overall in her age and weight class. Her most recent meet Masters PanAms in Orlando Florida where she also placed 2nd.
Alise is a CrossFit Level-1 trainer, and USAW Level 2 Coach. She been coaching classes at BCF CrossFit since 2017 and is also our weightlifting coach running 6 week courses with the goal to run a full-time barbell club in the near future.
When Anika was 13, she joined the first ever kids class at BCF with some of her friends. She instantly fell in love with CrossFit and all it had to offer. She loved the community, she loved lifting weights, and she loved that she could compete with herself and always see improvement in her performance. Plus, she got to do it with her friends right alongside her. Soon after she joined CrossFit, she put up her ballet shoes and became fully committed. Throughout her teen years, she competed in various teen competitions, and always looked forward to the time she got to spend in the gym.
The years Anika spent doing CrossFit lit a fire in her and were a strong influence on her decision to pursue a degree in Kinesiology. Her goal is to help people develop a love for fitness just like her coaches at BCF instilled in her.
Anika will graduate from Pacific University with a Bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology in May 2022. She is excited to start her full circle moment of coaching at the very place where she grew up and her passion for fitness blossomed.
Finding CrossFit gave Mark the confidence he needed to join the Army and serve his country. He has served 4 years of his life as a 68W Combat Medic, with most of his time spent at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Washington. He then spent 4 months in Thailand and the Philippines training foreign medics. While in the Army, Mark received his Level-1 certification.
Currently, Mark is in the Oregon National Guard. He is pursuing a Master’s degree in Physician’s Assistant studies at Pacific University. He is thankful for the opportunity to coach at his childhood gym, where he hopes to instill confidence and passion for health and fitness in others while continuing to grow and learn the sport.
Fitness has always been a part of Jess’s life in some shape or form. Prior to discovering BCF in April of 2015, she played school sports like volleyball and softball, played slow pitch softball as an adult, and enjoyed running, traditional gym workouts and group classes. CrossFit and the BCF Community filled her with a newfound sense of capability, and overcoming physical and mental challenges in the gym has crossed over into every aspect of her life. She loves having the opportunity to help others discover that same sense of empowerment as a coach. We can do hard things.
One day out of not where he says “I saw a bunch of people working out and it caught my eye. I memorized ‘BCF’ and as soon as I got home, I googled it. I called Trevor and now here I’m doing burpees for fun.”
After several years of doing CrossFit Jesus decided to get his Level 1 and started his journey as a Coach. His goal is to help athletes to move efficiently and to move heavy loads. Proper technique is essential in order to lift heavy and stay healthy. Jesus wants to be able to help anyone improve their physical capabilities for their daily life or weekend sport. Besides CrossFit, Jesus also coaches soccer with a Hillsboro club. Combining both sports is a plus because it is an unique opportunity to help young athletes to get strong and stay out of trouble. In the near future Jesus has goals to achieve his CrossFit L2, and have some fun programming workouts to keep our community healthy and sore.
CrossFit brings him back to those days on the baseball diamond cheering on his teammates during the big game. That camaraderie he felt during games is what he believe makes CrossFit, and specifically BCF, so unique.
Becoming a Level 1 trainer was his goal after completing my first year at the CrossFit box. Mickey's own personal experiences made him a believer as to how this sport can help people change their lives, there’s nothing more rewarding than to be a part of someone else’s journey along the way. Mickey believes BCF is the best gym, for more reasons than he can list in this bio and he looks forward to every chance available to help others achieve their goals no matter how big or small, achieving them is what’s matters!
Ray also holds his CFL1 as well as his CPR, AED, lifeguard and WSI (Water Safety Instructor) certifications. Outside of school he worked at the Forest Grove Aquatic Center lifeguarding, teaching swim lessons, as well as water aerobic classes.
What Ray loves so much about BCF and CrossFit is that everyone is uplifting and supports each other at their lowest and highest points alike. Whether you just hit a massive PR or you are coming off an ankle injury, BCF is always there to support its members. Both of Ray’s parents also attend BCF and he loves that even though they are all at different levels they all workout in a fun and safe environment together.
Outside of the gym Ray loves to hang out with friends, split a big ol basket of fries, and play games with his friends and travel. He is also finishing up his undergraduate degree in music education where he has a scholarship at Pacific University to play the tuba which he has been performing on stage for 13 years and counting! He has performed in numerous state and international bands and knows that things like developing musicianship and fitness is a slow process that takes hard work and dedication. These are some of the reasons why he is so dedicated to making a difference in the lives of the people he coaches.
