Hello I am Aaron Conklin owner, head coach, but most importantly, I am a fellow athelete! I spent 24 years on Active Duty Navy. My largest achievement in the Navy was making the rank of E-9, Master Chief Petty Officer. I walked into CrossFit Fort Vancouver in Feb 2012 and never looked back. The Exagora means redemption, and I am redeeming my days back through fitness and wellness. As I was the first athlete I had to coach in CrossFit I know what it is like to reverse years of unhealthy living. I want to do that for you. I started CrossFit Exagora not to grow a business ,but to grow a community that is helping make better human beings through fitness and wellness. I challenge you to redeem your days back, gain your youth back, and be part of the fasted growing fitness methodology on the planet.
I found my life’s passion Aug of 2012, when I finally got the nerve to walk into a CrossFit box. I was unfamiliar with the jargon and all the acronyms, but was very familiar with the team work, brotherhood, and no quit attitude that everyone displayed. I said to myself I am home. After spending 25 years in the military I missed the bonding that occurs when people are faced with a little adversity. This happens every day in CrossFit boxes around the world and the bond that is forged through that adversity is priceless. Take away the kettlebells, the med balls and all the weights and you will find a family that extends way beyond the Box. That is why I CrossFit!!!!!
