Victoria Trosen, MS, CF-L1
Victoria is an exercise physiologist for Trinity Health. Earning her degree from The College of St. Scholastica, she interned in Duluth, MN and Wichita Falls, TX with high school and college aged athletes, CrossFit, and Powerlifting. Brought to Minot with her husband serving in the Air Force, Victoria now functions as a CrossFit coach, personal trainer, and strength and conditioning coach. The well-roundedness of CrossFit suits Victoria’s style of loving both strength/resistance and aerobic modes of training. If there’s a workout with handstand push-ups and pistol squats, you’ll likely see her in her zone doing said workout. Triathlons, running, and weightlifting are all up her alley. Victoria is passionate about helping others reach their health and fitness goals! Outside of work and exercise, she takes joy in spending time with her husband and loved ones, motorcycling, renovating their home, being in the great outdoors, and being involved in their church.
Liz Vibeto is your typical all-American, girl next door CrossFit coach and athlete who turned a love of fitness and competition into a passion for the sport of CrossFit. She is CFL1 certified. Liz has been coaching for two years and has been participating in CrossFit as an athlete for four years. She grew up playing sports.
When Liz is not at the gym, she is a wife and mom of six kids. She is also a registered nurse. Of Liz’s six kids, four of them are boys and after they came into the world, Liz wanted to be able to keep up with them and their activities (like throwing footballs, playing basketball, or chasing after them) and needed a way to maintain a solid level of physical fitness. A friend encouraged her to come to a CrossFit class and Liz found that she really enjoyed the competitive aspect of the sport, plus she loves the strong sense of community found within the CrossFit box. Liz loves that CrossFit is for every fitness level and for every age. She is not the stereotypical CrossFit athlete you see on TV like people typically think of when they hear the word CrossFit. It is functional fitness for everyday life movement for all people.
Liz’s favorite CrossFit workout is Grace, 30 clean and jerks for time. If you think you can’t do something during a workout, Liz will be there, by your side, with words of encouragement and motivation to help you through. She also will not hesitate to pick apart your squat or politely tell you to not “worm” your push-ups.
As a Firefighter Recruit in 2012, Jordan was part a of two-person crew rescuing a downed firefighter in a basement. The objective was to get a downed firefighter up the steps and out of the structure. Jordan was unable to complete the task due to a lack of physical and mental conditioning. In a real situation, firefighters would have died that day. From that low point, Jordan knew he had to make changes.
He quickly found CrossFit. Jordan earned the CFL1 certification in December 2016, in efforts to help his fireground crew be the best versions of themselves. He has the same desire to help anyone striving for better.
Jordan has been dealing with neck / back injuries for a couple years. His treatment plans from Doctors have involved quick fix solutions and the notorious “quit doing that”. Jordan has recently discovered a program that uses an active approach with functional movements, as with CrossFit. He is moving and learning how to get out of pain day-by-day. If you are dealing with pain, Jordan would love the opportunity to help get you back to doing the active things you love.
Adam found CrossFit while training for a race in 2012. After one CrossFit workout he was hooked and hasn’t looked back. He enjoys the constantly varied physical challenge CrossFit presents, and the camaraderie of competing with peers. His favorite WOD is Fran, and his favorite accessory exercise is the Turkish get-up. Adam is Level 2 certified. When he’s not coaching or working out, he’s working full-time for Ryan Family Dealerships as their CFO. Adam also enjoys spending time with his family, camping, fishing and hunting, and just being active!
Kurt Lilley, known among the North Plains CrossFit crowd as the Hurt Locker, is an avid CrossFitter and it’s a rare day that you don’t find him in the CrossFit box as either a participant or a coach. He is CF-L1 certified and has been a CrossFit athlete for 3 years and a CrossFit coach for nearly 5 months.
Kurt spent 16 years in the military across three different branches- the US Marine Corps, the US Army, and the US Air Force. He took a tour of Iraq and Afghanistan courtesy of the U.S. Government, serving in combat. Currently, Kurt is in the Air National Guard 219th Security Forces Squadron and holds the rank of Senior Master Sergeant. Off the battlefield and in the academic field, Kurt also graduated from the University of North Dakota with a BS degree in Criminal Justice with a concentration in Forensic Science.
Having served in the military and seen combat, it’s no surprise that Kurt brings a militaristic approach to training and coaching. He constantly strives to challenge CrossFit athletes, both mentally and physically, to reach their full potential.
CrossFit is both a hobby and a passion for Kurt. When Kurt is not coaching or training and referring to the CrossFit box as his House of Pain, he enjoys spending time at the lake and camping. He also enjoys golfing and spending time with family.
