I started CrossFit in 2008 and opened CrossFit Deep the following year. I have dabbled in plenty of athletic hobbies ranging from skateboarding, martial arts, running, and mountain biking. CrossFit was an instant attraction for me because of how varied every workout is and the vast amount of areas to improve. The longer I use CrossFit as my main training program, the more I love how it brings out the best in people. Helping people get stronger, healthier, and more confident every day is something I never take for granted.

Madison Taylor

Cooper Institute Certified Personal Trainer
USAW Sports Performance Coach
CrossFit Level 1
OPEX Assessment & Program Design
FMS Level 1

I’ve spent my entire life being active by playing sports, getting outside to hike, climb, or camp, and traveling anywhere I could to experience something new. Throughout all of the activities I’ve tried I’ve found that the two things I love most in life are learning and helping other people to reach their goals. The world of fitness and athletic performance gives me the opportunity to fulfill both of my passions on a daily basis! Even better, being a part of CrossFit and Olympic Weightlifting communities at Deep gives me a place to strive to be better at what I do every day surrounded by people working to do the same. What more could I ask for?

I’ve always loved the camaraderie and competitive aspect of playing sports. I also love the cathartic nature of exercise and general body movement. Growing up I played many sports and began coaching baseball in college. Today I play recreational basketball, soccer, tennis, softball, golf, and volleyball, and anything else I can have some fun with! My personal fitness helps me stay sane from the grind of everyday life. Throughout my life I’ve enjoyed weightlifting, running, yoga, HIIT, but ultimately fell in love with CrossFit for the diversity of exercise and the community. The reason I coach is because I love being a part of people’s journeys to improved health and fitness.

Rowing Instructor

I picked up my first barbell when I was 12 years old and haven’t set it down, (cheesy metaphor, I know) BUT it’s true. Having a solid strength and conditioning background gave me the foundation to excel in all my athletic endeavors, especially rowing. After “retiring” from my rowing days, I found CrossFit. CrossFit has become a great outlet for me to keep up with my training and competitive spirit. I love having the opportunity to grow, coach, and share this sport with this community!


Jeff Bowden

Strength & Resistance Training

My life has always been full of competition, whether it be trying to best one of my three brothers, beat my friends in a bear crawl race, or participating in a variety of different sports. At one point in high school, I was involved in powerlifting, track, baseball, and the golf team. We only had 25 or so athletes in the school. So we did it all. I went on to The Ohio State and stopped competing allowing the “college life” to take over. I ended up with a B.S. in Health Sciences and a severe case of “I don’t move enough”. After college, I moved to New Orleans and worked as a personal trainer at a local fitness club. In 2010, I stumbled into a CrossFit gym in Nola and knew this was it – I was home. The CrossFit community is amazing and makes me want to be a better person, brother, friend and ultimately help others in any way I can. I love this community and am thrilled every day to be a part of it!

Growing up, I played every sport that my parents would allow me to, baseball, soccer, basketball, roller hockey and football. Anything I could do to go out and compete was a passion of mine. As I got older, I narrowed it down to Football which I continued through High School. I was fortunate enough to have an opportunity to play at the Collegiate level but decided that it was time to hang it up. During my college tenure I really let myself go and did not focus on my health or staying as active as I was accustomed to. Due to this, I put on a considerable amount of weight which I eventually determined was not how I wanted to live my life and something had to change.

Olympic Weightlifting
Slack Line

My family never participated in anything physical, and always believed in being intellectually athletic.  However, since being born here in the great country of Texas, my mom and dad took full advantage of the opportunities and enrolled me in a myriad of sports to go along with my studies.  I grew up mainly swimming and playing tennis, but that activity level receded quickly once I moved on to College Station.  Then, in February 2012, I discovered Crossfit, experienced a new level of “ouch”, and began a masochistic addiction with the sport.

Since coming to Deep, I've given myself wholly to understanding the science of everything olympic weightlifting.  I have found a passion that has made me realize my mental and physical potential, and I truly want to help others achieve the same.
