Kairina Perez Coach & CF2 Pregnancy & Postpartum Athleticism Coach

CrossFit Level 2 Trainer, Pregnancy & Postpartum Athleticism Coach

Kairina first discovered CrossFit in college and immediately fell in love with the methodology. The top two things that drew her to CrossFit back then and still do now are: (1) The community; and (2) The focus on what your body can do - there's always room to progress and work towards new goals, regardless of your fitness level. After the birth of her daughter, Kairina struggled physically and mentally in her return to fitness and realized there's a huge gap in women's health and pregnancy and postpartum fitness. This grew a deep passion to bridge that gap and led her to get certified as a Pregnancy & Postpartum Athleticism Coach. Kairina now runs Mama Strong classes for moms and moms-to-be at HGX in addition to coaching CrossFit classes. Kairina also offers 1:1 personal training and one-time consultations for pregnant/postpartum women and those experiencing core and/or pelvic floor dysfunction (e.g., pelvic organ prolapse or "heaviness", incontinence/leaking, and diastasis recti). With both CrossFit and Mama Strong, Kairina loves spending time in the details and seeing progress unfold in the athletes -- after all, small adjustments, performed consistently over time, will result in great improvements.

Shane Stent Coach

Crossfit Level 1, Aerobic Capacity course by Chris Hinshaw, Spin Instructor, Mobility WOD 101

After injuring my leg playing volleyball for UC Davis, I got introduced to the bike, which led to road racing, adventure races, and events like the Death Ride (16.000 feet of climbing over 129 miles) and LotoJa (200 miles, three states, no problem). Many hard lessons in the endurance world have created a foundation for my passion for fitness.
From 24 hour adventures to road races, and from Murph to yoga, I bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to my coaching and personal training. If I'm not coaching at HGX, I can be found with my wife and two kids, selling homes as an agent at Compass Realty, coaching for the Academy Volleyball Club, or with my three dogs. In between all that, I still find time to sleep, train, and ride my bike.
I just love the variety and high intensity that can prepare you for the unexpected, whether that's tubing with the kids, a 12 hour ruck event, or just moving stuff around at your house. HGX satisfies that personal desire to improve and also provides a competitive and supportive community. Having been involved in HGX for years, I am ready to impart some of that knowledge to you in a class or private session.
