Will JohnsCoach
Will has been a fitness enthusiast from a very young age. While growing up, Will participated in sports like baseball and football, to outdoor activities like hiking, hunting and camping. Will enlisted in the United States Marine Corps at age 18 and spent the next eight years of his life fighting the War on Terror. After 2 years as an Infantryman, Will tried out for and passed the rigorous selection process to become a Force Reconnaissance Marine.

During Will’s time in the special operations community, he tried many different workout routines in search of the best fitness regimen for the “tactical athlete”. Will realized one day, during a training mission, that the “tri-athlete fitness” routines he was used to doing, were not serving him well in his assigned profession. Although Will could move long distances quickly, he lacked the explosive strength to lift and firemen’s carry a 230lb teammate, with a simulated wound, covered in body armor, from the living room of a house to an awaiting medevac vehicle outside. Thus, began Will’s relationship with Crossfit.
In mid 2006, Will participated in his first Crossfit workout, with a few of his teammates and instantly realized that Crossfit was the exact type of fitness regimen he’d been searching for. CrossFit’s programming of constantly varied, functional movement and consistantly striving for workouts that are, broad, general and inclusive make up a fitness regimen that is not only perfect for the tactical athlete but the average person trying to achieve lifelong fitness habits. Within a few short weeks of doing CrossFit, Will immediately began to see results; a stark contrast to other fitness programs he has done in the past. Will was not only becoming stronger, but also becoming faster, harder, and more explosive, all of which are invaluable tools for a special operator. In 2008, Will attended the Crossfit Level 1 trainer Course, where he became a certified Crossfit instructor and spent the next couple of years training and instructing special operations and infantry personnel from all branches of service.
In 2009, Will married LV and introduced her to CrossFit. After 8 years of service, he transitioned from the military to public service. Will and Lv now have a son and look forward to his future growing up with the Built ATX community.

Arlin Pruitt
Arlin PruittCoach
Arlin was born and raised in West Texas. Anyone that is around him for more than five minutes will likely hear about it. He is a stereotypical Texan and is proud of his great state. Arlin grew up playing sports in high school and signed a national letter of intent to play baseball in college. After his playing days were done, Arlin decided to live a sedentary lifestyle that saw him tack on an extra 60 lbs. It took an honest conversation with his then girlfriend…

… (now wife) to make Arlin decide it was time to hit the gym. He tried the standard weightlifting regime of segmented body parts on specific days ad nauseam. His brother and sister-in-law bought him a 3-month membership for a CrossFit gym in Lubbock. Arlin was hooked.

4 years, 55 pounds, and several biomarkers later and Arlin is still loving the CrossFit methodology. Arlin has his CF-L1 and is also working on earning his Doctorate in Physical Therapy at the University of St. Augustine. Arlin is married to his high school sweetheart, Mandi, and has an adorable daughter, Ava. He said he must continue getting after it to get bigger, faster, and stronger so that he can ward off potential suitors for Ava as she gets older. Arlin believes that movement is the best and most underutilized medicine in the world. He has a passion for helping others around him get better and wants to help you achieve your goals!
