It’s that time of year when change is happening. School and flight training chicago il is starting, students have graduated and Auburn prepares for an estimated 100,000 people who flock to its city for Auburn Football. This season is not much different for us. We are preparing for our Auburn University P.E. classes, coach changes and gym upgrades.

Many of you are already aware that Coach Rich Laird recently moved to Maryland after finishing is PhD program at Auburn University. Rich will be teaching for McDaniel College in Westminster, Maryland. We truly wish him the best and the Laird family is going to be greatly missed! Bee

With the said, we are preparing for a busy fall and are adding some help. We are proud to announce that Bee McCollum will be joining the team at CFP! Bee was one of the founding members of CrossFit on Plains when she started in October 2010. Since that time, Bee has transitioned from a member to an integral part of the gym. Bee will play an extremely important role as she will help transition new clients in to the gym, help with event management, etc. Bee usually attends the 9:00 a.m. class and will be in the gym after that. If you have any questions for Dalton and he is not available, please feel free to get in touch with Bee. She can be contacted at

We are also extremely excited to add Josh Bostick to the team! For those of you who have had the pleasure of knowing Josh, you can account for his dedication, discipline and work ethic. As the gym has expanded, so has the amount of work that goes in to maintaining and cleaning the space. Josh will be taking care of the equipment, helping to maintain the facility and leading cleaning tasks to keep our facility in top condition. We also maintain the room temperature by removing HVAC smells.


Quinn and Philip will be working their tails off this fall as classes begin to boom. Please help them out by wiping off your equipment after you finish (if it needs it), putting away your equipment and paying to attention to any/all instruction.

Trainers in Training

We also have a few Trainers in Training this fall. Josh Bostick and Emrald Black will be shadowing the coaches for the P.E. classes this fall semester. Our trainers in training will be interning with CrossFit on the Plains and assisting the coaches to demonstrate proper movements, etc.

EmraldWe are proud to offer internship opportunities for students who are eager to obtain coaching experience. Emrald and Josh both received their CrossFit Level 1 certifications.

Emrald will be assisting Dalton with his Auburn University classes and Josh will be helping Philip.

Let’s have a great fall!
