MATTHEW TUTTLE

Owner & Head Coach
Military service taught me many things but the biggest one it taught me is integrity. Integrity is a learned trait & I attribute where I am at now to that. Helping people reach points in their fitness is priceless & it is why I opened Gnardog CrossFit.
I do what I love & I haven’t worked a day since.

ANTHONY FLORES

Coach

I joined Gnardog CrossFit in 2017, I was in my Senior year in high school. I came in with the idea of "this is easy" and sure enough I met the Thruster. Making the effort to show up to the gym and making yourself better than yesterday is what is always on my mind. I love lifting heavy weight with friends. When I am not at the gym I keep myself busy with school, work, and my family.

ANA CORTEZ

Coach

I live in the fine community of Parlier. I started CrossFit through some friends in 2014. What I love most about CrossFit is the suffering and community. It’s been a great experience and personal journey to be pushed outside of my comfort zone. There is something about suffering and knowing that the person right next to you is going through the same thing and prevailing that makes you push harder. I’ve personally gotten to benefit from the community aspect, as it’s given me some of my best friends. My favorite lift/movement is power cleans and double unders. My favorite benchmark is Grace. During the day I am a hairstylist at a senior living facility. When I am not coaching you can find me lifting and cracking a cold one with friends. Through CrossFit I’ve found that I can achieve more than I ever thought possible and I look forward to helping you on your path to be better than yesterday.

EDWARD ECHEVESTE

Coach

I started CrossFit the summer of 2016.  I remember walking into Gnardog and grabbing a business card and introducing myself to some of the Coaches on that Sunday.  My favorite WOD is probably Fran. I enjoy the fire breathing and the more hurtful the workout the better.  I love the welcoming community.  This community can be push you to be a better person inside and outside of the gym.  What I like about Coaching is the ability to see someone push themselves.  I enjoy seeing people reach those limits because we are always capable of more than we think. Outside of the Box I work as a Wildland Firefighter.  Six months out fo the year I am usually unavailable and you won'd see me around as much.  I love my job.  My hobbies include traveling with my dog, skateboarding and hanging out with my friends and family.

DAWN HAGOPIAN-MCFALL

GDFit30 Coach

I started CrossFit in the summer of 2017.  I love any WOD with bikes or boxes and I do love HERO WOD MURPH.  The variety of CrossFit is why I love it.  Each day is different and each Coach brings something new to the workout.  A Coach can say one statement about a movement and suddenly I get it!  I improve my form or it inspires me to try a heavier weight. I love the people; helping them become comfortable, successful in the movements, watching their confidence and skills improve.  Fitness has so many effects on the body, not just physically but mentally.  Seeing members laugh and smile together while they sweat it out, makes coaching some much fun.  In my free time, I love to work out.  I love watching my son play football and basketball.  I’m also a part of the El Rio Reyes Guild, a fundraising guild for Valley Children’s Hospital, and a volunteer with the American Red Cross.  The Crossfit community is what makes Crossfit special.  The friendships and inspiration are amazing!  It makes me a better Coach, Athlete, and Person.
