Meet Coach Brett!

Check out Brett’s full bio below:

First Name: Brett
Last Name: Schack

Certifications: Crossfit Level 1 Certificate

Years CrossFitting: 1 ½  years

What do you specialize in?: 

Goal oriented programming, corrective exercise drills, and training preparation

What are you passionate about?: 

Helping people manage a healthy lifestyle, accomplishing their goals, and improve their performance

What do you love most about coaching your members?: 

I mainly coach the adult and teen CrossFit classes.

The adult classes are skilled and outgoing. Each class has its own personality but they still put in the work from the programming scheduled and still have fun at the same time. For members coming in after a long day at work, come to relieve the built up stress. Seeing how they come out of class ‘refreshed’ or more lively lets me know I made a difference in their day.

The teen classes are very structured and full of energy. Considering this is the peak time of physical development for these adolescents, it is really great to see how much and how fast they grow and adapt to the ‘up-beat’ environment. Knowing that I can contribute to improve their health and well-being that will help them succeed now and later in their life gives me much gratitude.

Two different of atmospheres, but love coaching both types.

What is your athletic background? Any notable accomplishments?: 

Military fitness background, fitness enthusiast, and participate in obstacle course races

I have rucked a marathon with sixty pounds on my back in an extreme heated climate.

How did you end up as a CrossFit coach? What path brought you here?:. 

I was judging an event for the CrossFit Games open. After the event, the person who I was judging complimented on my motivation and advice during the event that I should consider looking into being a CrossFit coach. At the time I was looking into being a personal trainer, but CrossFit soon gained my interest. I met up with a good friend that was opening up a CrossFit box in my town, and he presented me an opportunity to coach CrossFit. Couple months later during my internship at CrossFit Aestus, I received my CrossFit Level 1 certificate.

The CrossFit Aestus community and mentorship has led me to the path where I am in now.

What’s your favorite quote?: 

“Motivation is the key to success”

Is there anything else you want people to know about you?

Still serving full-time in the Army National Guard. Currently working on my Bachelors degree in Sports Health Science. When I have time, I enjoy spending time with family, cooking, exploring outdoors, and reading fitness related topics. And reside happily in Fuquay-Varina with my wife and daughter.
