SUSY ORTEGA

COACH

Movement to me is the exploration of time and space, a beautiful ability to encounter our surroundings and being able to respond. The fascination to move began early on in childhood. Many of my early days were spent chasing the sun, building tree houses and jumping over the fence to play with neighborhood friends.
 
As I grew up I began my journey into a more disciplined form of movement through martial arts. Through Tae Kwon Do and Krav Maga, the foundation was set for me to tackle challenges and push my limits beyond what I thought they could stretch. I enjoyed both so much that I decided to start teaching. Through teaching I found a greater freedom to explore the different facets of what we are capable of doing as humans. I truly enjoy interacting with students and friends who are aiming to make a positive impact in their lives.
 
Now a days, you can still find me chasing the sun (and the wind) sailing in Lake Travis, hiking, climbing trees and doing anything else that satisfies my childlike curiosity.

ASHLEY LOMBARD-SELF

COACH

Ashley is a mom of five and has been married to her husband Jeremy for nineteen years. Her first priority is setting an example of a healthy lifestyle for her family. Ashley started CrossFit back in 2012, and in 2017, she wanted to pursue further education about fitness and CrossFit specifically. She loves coaching at CrossFit Lakeway because not only does CrossFit Lakeway help people to pursue their fitness and health goals, but CrossFit Lakeway has an incredible community of people.

She believes the CrossFit community is what encourages clients to keep coming back, getting better, and applying what they learn in CrossFit to their everyday lifestyle.

ENRIQUE CALDERON

COACH

In the Military, I found my love for CrossFit. I was a Reconnaissance Marine and we did exhaustive fieldwork. We would have to go on long missions carrying a ruck of 80lb through all types of terrain. Sometimes we’d have to swim with that ruck to shore in the middle of the night. There was never a mission where we truly new what we were going to encounter.

I fell in love with CrossFit because it was the only thing truly able to prepare me for the rigors of our unknown missions. Our community focused heavily on strong swimming, distance runs/rucks and strength. We often combined them into one workout making hard days to prepare us for the unknown.

I had always wanted to get my CrossFit Level 1 Certification and after getting out of the militarI finally did April 2015. I love being able to help people with CrossFit because like me, I want them to be prepared for what ever life challenges them with both physically and mentally.

DEBBIE KAHLER

COACH

Debbie had been searching for a challenging workout that would not leave her bored and deflated. She found Krav Maga and Crossfit in 2011 while training for a mud run and was hooked.

She fell in love with the sense of empowerment, encouragement and community that defines Lakeway Elite Fitness. She was so inspired by her coaches and the people around her, she became a coach herself.

She loves to help people push through their reservations and self-doubts - watch them give it all they have – and then smile in the aftermath. Her goal is to help instill that level of empowerment and sense of accomplishment to athletes of all sizes and abilities.

Debbie’s favorite part of Lakeway Elite Fitness is the sense of community, more like family, that is felt within the gym. “It’s not just a place to workout – it’s a family. We feel each other’s pain and we feel each others joy! And we are ALWAYS there to support and encourage each other!”
