Courtney Ford

Owner / Coach

I have been a part of the CrossFit Community since 2011 and have been on the floor coaching and dedicating my time to inspire and motivate athletes since 2012. I've led large groups of Bootcamp, Strength & Conditioning, CrossFit and Private Programs--and my main mission to to get people to move for the longevity and to do cool things outside our 4 walls. My goal is for each member to walk out of the gym with confidence and pride on their fitness performance. If I can make it the best hour of their day, put a smile on their face and challenge them to be their best? I've done my job.

Tori Pierce

Coach

My love of movement started early in life. I began to dance in my mother’s studio at the age of 3 and went on to compete and perform through high school. This passion continued once leaving my home in Appleton as I went onto a dance career in Chicago and New York. After ten years as a professional commercial dancer for performers such as Beyoncé, Kanye West, Jennifer Lopez, Selena Gomez, and Madonna, I parlayed my love of movement and teaching skills into a career in fitness. Finding Crossfit in 2015, I quickly realized that my unique background and love for teaching movement could reach a broader group of people outside the dance world. My goal is to create a fun, inclusive, and supportive environment for all, prioritizing long-term health and fitness over short-term gains.

Courtney Thorne

Coach

I started weightlifting consistently in high school to prepare me for Track and Softball and was formally introduced to Olympic Style Weightlifting mid-college when I met my former Coach Jinping Ma. With him I trained and competed at the National level for multiple years and was able to travel to China to train with the Beijing National team. While training I found a passion for coaching, obtained my MA degree in Kinesiology, and began working as a strength and conditioning coach at the University of Northern Iowa. Weightlifting has forever changed my life and has rooted itself into my heart. It has allowed me to make many life long friends, introduced me to my husband, and lead me to Green Bay, WI. I joined Crossfit One Shot to find a new family to share my experiences with and to grow as an athlete.

Ashley Grant

Coach

I started playing competitive sports at a young age and continued throughout high school playing Varsity Basketball, Cross Country & Soccer. I then continued soccer in college. After, I was lucky enough to be a Varsity Soccer Coach at Bay Port High School for four years. During my third pregnancy I wanted to get active again. Courtney and Chase Ford told me about CrossFit and how they could scale it for my growing body! I started 4 months pregnant and fell in love with the sport and community -- and haven't stopped since!

Casey Vannes

Coach

As a Coach at One Shot, it's an honor and privilege to be able to train people and help them become the best versions of themselves through fitness. I have a deep passion for fitness and CrossFit in specific because of what it's done for me in my personal life, what I've seen in doing in our members lives and how it prepares you for life outside the bay door. My full time job is as an Automotive Technician, fixing cars and trucks, and CrossFit definitely helps me outside of the gym everyday I go do my job. I've been doing CrossFit since 2014, and coaching in some capacity here since 2015. I'm thankful for this gym and community every single day. It's my ultimate goal to help our athletes become better and more effective in everything they do in an out of the gym through my expertise and experience.
