Meet Our Team

Rich Ward, Owner

I have been a CrossFit athlete for 12 years and a CrossFit coach at CFLO for the past 4 years.  I love helping people and working with them to achieve their personal goals.  I love CrossFit's community, which is the biggest reason my wife and I purchased the Gym in February of 2021.   Amy and I believe in this community and are excited to see it grow year after year.

Jean Thorson, Coach/Trainer

Jean brings passion, fire, and energy to the gym floor. One of her favorite motivations as a coach is taking someone from a beginner’s level and helping them discover that anything is possible. She believes in hard work, determination, and a never-give-up mentality to accomplishing goals. And at the young age of 40-something, she will remind you that age is just a number. She discovered CrossFit in 2010, thanks to a friend who encouraged her to check it out. After four years of playing around with the sport at CFLO, she was encouraged to take it to the next level and get back into the arena of competing and coaching. She enjoyed being a part of the Invictus Master’s Athlete community since 2016, with her greatest accomplishments of placing 4th at the 2016 Granite Games Masters 40-44 division, participating in the 2015-2017 CrossFit Master Qualifier 40-44 division, and being a member on the 2015 and 2017 CrossFit Wilsonville West Regional team. Jean is a Certified CrossFit Trainer (Level 3), ACE Certified Personal Trainer, and has attended several seminars along the way. She has been a part of the CrossFit coaching staff at CrossFit Wilsonville, Invictus Fitness San Diego, and Nike World HeadQuarters. She is happily married to her husband, Eric, of 24 years. They stay busy traveling and discovering new golf courses and CrossFit gyms wherever they go.

Scott Bossert, Coach/Trainer

I have been participating in CrossFit since early 2009 in some form or another. I started coaching CrossFit in 2016, and have been enjoying it since. I have a teaching background and enjoy sharing knowledge around fitness and health for life.
The COVID19 Pandemic resulted in several changes for all of us.  Some of those changes were some fantastic opportunities for me.  One of those changes was remote coaching.  This has been a blessing for us.  During the past year, we also started OPEX CCP, which is a coaching education started by the first CrossFit Games Champ.  Plus, I started working on more knowledge with the Precision Nutrition Level 1.   I believe in the philosophy of TEACH - LEARN - MOVE - CREATE.   I consider myself lucky to work at those things each day with my clients.
Little on the personal side. My wife and I live in the thriving metropolis of King City with our fur baby, Lexi. Tara and I have been married for 9 years. When we aren't working, we get lots of dog walks with our energetic dog. We enjoy finding good little spots around town to eat and trying new things (typically BBQ or tacos). I enjoy expressing my fitness with outdoor activities and participating in some local comps here and there.

Rob Bozada, Pers Trainer

Rob Bozada is a NIKE Trainer at NIKE World Headquarters in Oregon, USA. He is a Human performance Optimization expert that specializes in joint and tissue mobility protocols, strength, speed and power development, neuromuscular coordination patterning, the psychology behind success, and overall enhancement of the human experience.

Bozada has created his own certification process, which launched in February of this year (2020) throughout Italy.

Bozada Performance Systems will conduct this event twice per year from now on throughout Italy. The certification process is composed of three levels; each focusing on imperative, dynamic principles of coaching, training, and optimization of one’s performance. The first level focuses on breath work and mindset; as well as how both of these interface with the nervous system, and unlock untapped potential. From there, these principles are applied to increasing one’s mobility and movement quality. Level two and three increase in complexity; offering more elaborate details regarding performance, nutrition, and the aspects of life that potentiate our sense of well-being and health. Whether you are looking to rehabilitate, rest and recover, fuel your inner athlete through positive psychology, gain strength or lose weight, live a pain-free, capable life with access to your full movement potential, or wanting to compete against the most

elite athletes (or business leaders) in the world, Bozada has the expertise to enable you.
