WOD’s for the Week of 5/20…. and a special announcement!

Your Springfield CFE Coaches are very excited to announce some additions to our coaching team. Jen C. and Leslie Gloe will be stepping in as new endurance coaches for both the daytime and evening classes as KT takes a little LOA to open up Crossfit Kids Springfield and I prepare for my move to Cali :(. Both Leslie and Jen have been training with us from the very beginning of CFE and have proven themselves as both endurance athletes and coaches. CFE is my “baby” at the gym and it makes me so sad to leave you guys but I could not think of two better people to pass things on to. Please help me in welcoming these ladies as our newest coaches. – Elizabeth

Jen C

I am a CrossFit Level I certified coach, and have been utilizing the CFE method since the program’s inception at CFS last year. I am a firm believer in the CFE methodology for injury prevention, and have appreciated significant personal gains since adopting its proposed form recommendations and programming. I love the sense of tranquility and accomplishment running brings, and am elated to have recently completed my first half-marathon. I am thrilled for the opportunity to share my passion for running, nutrition, and overall health with our community.- CFE Coach Jen C.


My running background began in my 30’s with a Couch to 5K app and my puppy, Olive. Shortly thereafter, in February 2011, I was introduced to CrossFit. I quickly embraced the CrossFit Endurance method of training that same year and I know that I would not have accomplished finishing many races & CrossFit competitions without it! I am a CrossFit Level 1 Trainer as well as a CrossFit Endurance Certified Coach. For my day job I am a Certfied Registered Nurse Anesthetist, but I love to come to CrossFit and watch people transform their lives in the gym as well as in the kitchen. I have enjoyed watching CFE awaken the endurance athlete in myself and am passionate about assisting others to safely and efficiently train for endurance events, CrossFit, or life in general!- CFE Coach Leslie Gloe

  1. So excited for Jen C.and Leslie to take over the CFE torch! You guys will be great, and I won’t be far away if you ever need a sub or I may crash a class, like I did tonight! Great class, Chad! 7:40 on the short interval workout!


  2. Congrats Jenn C. and Leslie.

    Burpees and 100 m sprint. Wasn’t too fun.
    Think it was 8 something. And no injuries so a good night.

    Barb ran it in like 5 minutes cause she is super woman 😉

    Good job Kirk. You brought it last night.


  3. Also Elizabeth you will be missed. You helped me in adding another aspect to my success I have had a Crossfit and I really do appreciate the efforts in getting the Endurance class going.

    You and Andy will be missed not only as good coaches, but will remember you as gracious and humble people who were willing to help out anyone. You will be missed by Endurance peeps.

    Ok I need a tissue 😉
