Claire Talley
Operations Director/Coach
CrossFit Level 1
CrossFit Kids

Claire is a native to the area, attending The Woodlands High School, and returned home after graduating from Texas A&M University in 2009.

After a consistent push from friends, Claire started at CrossFit Town Center in February of 2013. As it goes for so many, CrossFit was intimidating and seemed an unlikely fit for her and her current fitness level. And as it goes for so many, it took one WOD to get her hooked. “I can’t tell you what my first workout was, but I can tell you what I felt like when I was done. I felt like part of a family. That’s what makes CrossFit and CFTC different than anything else.”

After five years in education, teaching dance and junior high math, Claire has joined the team full-time to oversee our younger Townies in our CrossFit Town Center Kids Program, and serve as our Director of Operations.

 

Amy Law
Outreach Director/Coach
CrossFit Level 1
CrossFit Kids

Growing up, sports and exercise were not Amy’s thing. She had a brief stint as a cheerleader but quit once she realized practice did not work well with her social calendar. As an adult, Amy mastered the art of wearing her favorite colored workout pants to the gym, without breaking a sweat. This quickly changed when she joined CFTC. She realized that the more she sweats, the more fun she has, and kept coming back. Long story short, colored pants have been retired.

Two weeks after her first WOD, a friend encouraged Amy to register for The CrossFit Open. The encouragement, excitement, and enthusiasm she felt from the CFTC community had her hooked. It didn’t take long until both of her boys were involved in CrossFit Kids.

Amy took it upon herself to be a CrossFit Town Center ambassador, which made her the perfect fit as our Outreach Director. Don’t be surprised when you get an email or text from her, just to check in! As a former elementary school teacher, Amy loves to see her athletes master new skills, and build confidence each day. Teaching CFTC’s Foundations program to new CrossFitters was a great way to bring her experience in the classroom and passion for CrossFit together.

When Amy is not at CFTC, you will find her spending time with her husband, Matt, and their boys, or traveling back to her beloved Scranton, PA to visit family. You might even catch her driving through Sonic for an un-sweet tea.

Dania Hook
Program Director/Coach
CrossFit Level 1
Freestyle Connection Gymnastics Movement
USA Weightlifting

With a background as a competitive gymnast, Dania found her passion for CrossFit after having her two girls (now 4 and 3) 16 months apart. Although she was initially intimidated to try CrossFit, she took the plunge and tried her first class. She was immediately drawn to the sense of community CrossFit provides and found a new way to channel her competitive nature. In addition to her training, Dania made adjustments to her diet and quickly found herself in better shape than she was pre-pregnancies. She competed in her first CF competition just months after beginning her training, and took 2nd place.

Her confidence reached new heights, and Dania found herself wanting to share her love for CF with her friends who were amazed at her progress. Having now left the corporate world in favor of being a full-time mom, Dania pursued her CF Level 1 Certification and began coaching at CFTC.

Dania’s philosophy on health and fitness was a perfect match for the values of CFTC. She believes that the goal of exercise and nutrition is not vanity, but a healthy lifestyle that empowers people with strength, confidence, and a stronger sense of self. She takes pride in living this lifestyle and most importantly, setting an example for her children.

Loren McElmurry
