At Renew, our goal is to give anyone and everyone who walks through our door -- from the former collegiate athlete to the young professional to the stay-at-home mother of four -- a preparedness for life; to build a foundation strong and smart enough to fight sickness with fitness. And we believe firmly that thoughtful programming, intentional coaching, and a community of accountability are the keys to achieving that goal.
When you become a member of the Renew Crew, you become a priority. Whether through group classes, personal training, nutrition coaching, community events, or specialized workshops and tracks -- our team of highly qualified coaches work with you to meet you exactly where you are, to help get you where you want to be.
Justin, or as everyone calls him, “Hroch”, has been CrossFitting with Renew since its inception in 2012. In 2016, he got his L1 and took the leap out from ministry and into gym ownership and became the captain of the Renew ship. When he’s not at Renew, Hroch helps families find their forever homes with Pearson Realty. He is married to Tara, has four awesome kids, and a dog. He enjoys barbells and bourbon - in that order. So it may not come as a surprise that his favorite benchmark workout is Isabel (followed by a glass of Woodford Reserve).Justin HrochOwner & Coach; CF-L1
Becky has been an athlete at Renew since 2013 and a coach since 2015! Becky began her career in child welfare, working with foster and adoptive families but as the gym has grown, so has her role and she became the General Manager of Renew Fitness in 2020! If she had to change her career entirely, she would become a marine biologist. Becky lives with her husband, Jon, who has also lived in Austin for over a decade. She loves Jesus and believes He offers hope in this hard world. Her favorite benchmark workout is Nancy — though she hates running she loooves her some overhead squats!Becky WickesGM, Owner & Head Coach; CF-L2
Sadie, who's been coaching at Renew since 2016, is a former collegiate athlete with a penchant for power lifts. So, unsurprisingly, her favorite benchmark workout is the lovely Linda. As a mom, Sadie is passionate about pregnant and postpartum fitness and wellness, and works hard to help women take care of their bodies before and after birth. When she's not trying to get you to learn a new game or forcing her 90s alternative music beliefs upon you, you can find Sadie outside somewhere or at a brewery with her husband and their two ridiculous kids.Sadie FlynnCommunications Director, Personal Trainer & P&PA Coach; CF-L2
Brett, who’s been coaching at Renew since 2014, played sports throughout his adolescence, and has competitive baseball to thank for his shoulder problems. Being 6’4, Brett loves all the Tall Guy things: rowing, biking, wall-balls, and anything with a barbell. So it feels right to say that his favorite benchmark workout is Grace. In the gym, you’ll never find Brett not listening to rap music. Outside the gym, Brett loves to spend time at home with his lovely wife and three little kiddos, or wrangling other people’s kiddos as the Student Ministry Director at the Austin Stone Community Church.Brett MylesCoach; CF-L2
Tim has worked in the fitness industry as a personal trainer and CrossFit coach since 2014. Though he’d dropped in a number of times at Renew over the years, in May of 2022, Tim formally joined Renew as both an athlete and a coach! When he’s not helping people hit their fitness goals, Tim enjoys going on adventures with his family and riding around Austin on his e-Bike. Though there are many barbell benchmarks to choose from, his favorite is Isabel.Tim DancyPersonal Trainer & Coach; CF-L1, USAW-L1
Though he had been in and around the CrossFit community since 2013, due in large part to his 8-year service in the United States Army, Chris joined the Renew Crew in 2021 as a member looking for a new gym home after moving from Georgia to Austin. And in 2022, while pursuing his Masters in Business Administration at the University of Texas, Chris got his CF-L1 and officially joined the team as a coach! Chris is originally from Guatemala City, Guatemala, enjoys traveling and learning new languages, and outside of the gym you can find him paddle boarding on Ladybird Lake. Chris’ favorite benchmark workout is Murph, and when he’s short on time, Chelsea.Chris TabushPersonal Trainer & Coach; CF-L1
