He continued his education at Texas A&M – Commerce under Dr. Ken Alford, PhD. In 2006, Mycal graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Health and Human Performance, Kinesiology.

As an Officer of Marines, he spent time developing remedial fitness programs for the Marines in various units boosting performance in annual Physical Fitness Tests by more than 25%. In 2009 and 2011 he developed offseason strength and conditioning programs for the Gila Ridge High School Football team, helping them reach the 2011 Arizona State Playoffs for the first time in school history. This programing helped a number of players move on to play at the college level. Mycal now regularly competes locally and regionally in CrossFit competitions.

Sloane Thomas - As a coach, Sloane wants to inspire you, to lift heavier weights, to get more reps, and to laugh more than usual. She works to bring out your competitive drive and help you attain your goals. Sloane doesn’t care if you can only make it to the gym one day or 4 days, you’re still an athlete and still have that competitive side that keeps you coming back.
Sloane has been an athlete her entire life, but until she found CrossFit, she had never truly found her sport. After she stopped playing basketball in high school, she began equestrian and participating in competitive show jumping. In college, she started competing less and less, once she graduated from college she was unsure of what she wanted to do. Sloane knew one thing, she had always loved going to the gym, so she went on to become a personal trainer at the National Personal Training Institute. There, her coach introduced her to CrossFit and the love of the sport was formed. The workouts were painful, but very fulfilling because of Sloane’s competitiveness.
Sloane learns something new each and every day while at the gym. Sloane’s competitive nature pushes her to never stop learning or being inspired.
