Meet Our Coaches
Coach Jeremiah Sloan
“Hi I’m Jeremiah. I am a CrossFit Level 2 Trainer that has been with CFNS for 1 year and I’ve been completely blown away by the awesome community we have here! Prior to CFNS, I was part of the CrossFit coaching staff at the Hanscom Warrior Training Center in Massachusetts. What I love about coaching is the opportunity to meet new people and to help them get more out of life by becoming healthier. There is something deeply rewarding about watching folks commit to and achieve their goals both in and out of the gym!”
Coach Aaron Webb
Hi I’m Aaron. I’ve been doing Crossfit for almost 3 years now. I’ve been here at Natural State for a year so far. I have my Level 1 Crossfit Certification and have been coaching for a year now. I love to help people achieve better health through Crossfit and try to do my best to make them feel prepared for every workout. I love the atmosphere and community aspect of Crossfit. I think it’s a very constructive environment for anyone that is seeking to better themselves. I’m a very loud and energetic person, but I promise I don’t bite! I’d love to help you to the best of my ability. All you have to do is ask!
Owner & Coach Aaron Headley
I believe that you can accomplish anything that you set your mind to. Hard work, determination, and a positive mindset will take you a very long way. Just go for it.
I started working out consistently, focusing on my health/fitness during college. I was going to school to be a high school English teacher (I have always had a desire to help others learn and make an impact). The more I fell in love with learning about fitness and proper nutrition, the more I realized that I was headed down the path of the wrong career choice. What didn’t change was my passion to help others. So, while working a full-time job, starting a family, and going to school full-time, I decided to start the certification process of becoming a personal trainer.
One decision lead to another and (fast-forward) I quit school and left my job to become the general manager of a personal training business inside a local health club. There were a lot of things that I loved about the job: meeting new people, being a part of their fitness journey, and making an impact by helping them learn more about becoming fit. Also, this position is where I was introduced to CrossFit!
One of my employees, Dylan Vangilder, and I had become good friends and started to workout together regularly. One day, we decided to give CrossFit a try. I fell in love with the intensity, the excitement, and most of all, the COMMUNITY that CrossFit Natural State brought to the table and was 100% bought in!
4 years later, with hard work, determination, and a positive mindset all backed by my strong, supportive wife, Vanna , I became a CrossFit Level 1 coach and the proud owner of Natural State. I believe that this was one of the greatest decisions of my life. I thank God everyday for blessing Vanna, Urban and myself with such an incredible community of like-minded , caring people. I love our box and we will never lose sight of its purpose. We are here to help you reach success by promoting a healthy lifestyle, educating in terms of fitness, nutrition and overall health, and keeping the members of our amazing community accountable. See you at the gym.
Again, you can accomplish anything you set your mind to.

Coach Chamy Keough
For the almost three years Crossfit has been a very important part of my life. I walked into Crossfit Natural State in January of 2017. Although I was intimidated at first, the comradery of the members and passion the coaches had for the sport hooked me immediately. Crossfit is a stress relief, a motivation, a push to live healthier, and a healthy way to test and improve both physical and mental limitations. Because of these changes that I have seen in my own life and Crossfit experience, I have now gained my CF-L1 allowing me to coach. I am very excited to continue growing with my Natural State community as we all strive each day to live more active and positive lifestyles. -Chamy Keough
Coach Will Oliver
I wasn’t the fastest, tallest, or most athletic kid growing up until I discovered the weight room. I began to see my athleticism increase the more I went to the gym and trained. I was fascinated by the phenomenon I was experiencing, it seemed like the harder I worked, the better athlete I became. I turned that fascination into a profession by learning the science behind exercise and thereby using it to create opportunities for others to improve their athleticism and fitness. I’ve recently extended that realm of opportunity to CrossFit Natural State as a coach, working with some the best people I’ve had the pleasure of coaching. The physical building itself has a super positive vibe that invites you in and makes you want to stay. Above all else though, in the same way a church is not a building, it is the community of people at CrossFit Natural State that makes it feel like home. Proud to be a part of such a (literal) strong community.
