CO-OWNER / HEAD COACH
Lindsey McDuffie is Head Coach and Co-owner at CrossFit Hendersonville. She specializes in the prescription of strength and conditioning through personal assessment. Individualization is the core of the training programs she develops for her athletes. "Of course no two athletes are the same – I believe their training program should reflect those differences. Many people come into CFH with an idea of what they want to achieve – I specialize in working with them to refine that goal into something that’s attainable and prescribed for their unique needs. I make sure there’s a good mix between what they want and what I know they need. That’s how we develop CFH athletes for life."
To say Coach Lindsey is passionate about helping her athletes be better versions of themselves is an understatement. She lives and breathes fitness and has a constant thoughtfulness and genuine care and love that she pours into her athletes. "I’ll make you sweat, but our relationship is more than that. I am always pushing my athletes to be better than yesterday. My passion is helping my athletes become better versions of themselves... at home, at work, in their neighborhoods, and in every aspect of their lives."

Ryan is the Co-Owner of Crossfit Hendersonville. Although he has been around the gym since day 1, he was working in corporate America while Lindsey started the gym in 2008. It was fun watching his better half do something that she was passionate about as the business continued to grow. Neither of them dreamed it would lead them into an opportunity of working side by side one day. But here they are! "Because of Lindsey's work ethic early on, and our incredible community, we get to do what we love together each day!"
One of Ryan's favorite things about our gym is the community. "It has become our 2nd family. I am sure most gym owners would say the same or similar things about their members, but this community is OURS and it is truly special." Ryan loves to make sure each member feels welcomed. "They are only here for a few hours each week, I want to make sure that walking into our gym is a highlight and something they look forward to each and every time."
Ryan oversees our corporate programs. He has coached and worked with the Ryman Hospitality Group since February of 2015. He has seen first hand what adding on-site CrossFit classes can do for a big corporation. It is fun to see the lifestyle changes those members have made in the last few years, and the lifetime benefits that have received in doing so.

Scott Batson started coaching at CrossFit Hendersonville in 2012. Scott buys in to the theory that the hour at CFH should be the best hour of your day. "I want people to come in to the gym and forget all of the craziness and business going on in their day. I want them to spend that one hour smiling, laughing and absolutely working their tail off. When people are having fun and working hard, they can accomplish more than they thought they could. To see that smile after a big lift, tough workout they completed, or a specific goal they accomplished is just awesome!"
Scott enjoys coaching athletes of all levels from beginners to the experienced athlete. "I love to laugh and have fun with athletes when they come in to the gym. CFH is a special place and I want to make sure they experience that."

Shannon was introduced to CrossFit in 2010 and earned her CrossFit L-1 in 2013. She’s married to Chad, and they share their love for CrossFit, but enjoy different coaching techniques (but they never coach each other).
She has a passion for working with athletes of all levels and abilities and being part of their fitness journey. She welcomes each athlete where they are, and moves them forward to where they want to be. Seeing an athlete grow and achieve their goals—first double-under or PR on a dead lift—makes her day!
Shannon is constantly thinking of her athletes and what she can do for them to make them better in the gym. She likes to discover what makes them tick, and she has a desire to constantly learn new techniques for an exercise that may work for that athlete.
She enjoys being on the water, traveling, spending time with her family, and hanging out with her athletes outside of the gym.

Chad is the 5am coach at Crossfit Hendersonville. He has been coaching for 3 years now. He is our go to, early bird, coach with a passion to motivate those that need a good workout before your workday. “I love utilizing my talents and being a part of other people’s lives to make them better as an athlete and the simple qualities in life. My passion is making my athletes feel like they have accomplished a great workout before leaving the gym, pushing them to do things (modifying where needed) they never thought they could do.
No matter your background or age, Chad has his athletes best interest in mind and passionate about coaching here at Crossfit Hendersonville. “My class consist of athletes ranging from 21 to 65 and I love having the opportunity to be a part of a program that enables people to become stronger, physically fit, and live a wonderful lifestyle.”
