Coach Chappie started Alpine Ranch CrossFit inside his home garage in 2013. He received his CrossFit Level I Trainer certification and started small by training his wife, Arlene, and her two friends. Within 6 months he had 15 athletes training 3 days a week. By 2015, 15 turned into 50 and he was running 3 classes a day 5 days a week out of their 3-car garage. Chappie expanded his coaching knowledge receiving several more certifications to include his CrossFit Level II Trainer certification. Arlene was hooked and received her CrossFit Level I Trainer certification. In 2016, Chappie & Arlene went all in. They closed down the garage and moved to a 2600sqft space inside the beautiful Viejas Outlet Center! Within one week, the gym exploded to 100 athletes.
