BJ Cauley 

Owner/Head Coach

 

"I have been a fitness and gym junky for over 20 years.  My career before CrossFit was working as a firefighter and Paramedic for over 10 years.  I have always thought I was in great shape until I tried my very first CrossFit workout.  I instantly fell in love with it after I picked myself up off the floor 30 minutes later.  It was perfect for what I needed with its functional movements and high intensity.  It prepared me to be an all around fit individual and helps me to accomplish everyday life.  Since then I've pursued as much knowledge and education in CrossFit as possible.  I decided the city of Terrell and the surrounding communities should benefit from such a great avenue of fitness and so I opened CrossFit Terrell.  I'm dedicated to improving the lives and fitness of the citizens of the surrounding communities".
