Our Team


CrossFit Coach Dennis Bonnema
My name is Dennis. I am father of three and prior service member with over 12 years at Fort Bragg. I found a love for fitness during my time in Special Operations, where the need to be strong, fast, and able to endure became critical to mission success. I’ll admit, I was skeptical of CrossFit when first introduced, however after a couple months of training I knew it was exactly what I needed. I have since developed a second love for the sport of weightlifting. I enjoy the technical nature of the snatch and clean and jerk. It is my hope to provide a strong community, based in fitness, and dedicated to helping others create positive, lifelong habits of health and wellness.

CrossFit Coach Steffi Small
Hello, I’m Steffi! I began CrossFit in 2016. My objective is to coach and have fun with all of my athletes. I gained my CrossFit Level 1 certificate in 2018 and have coached over 150 people in how to properly practice functional fitness. I am excited to be a part of this community and share my love for fitness!

CrossFit Coach Ron Chausse
My name is Ron. I have been a part of the CrossFit community for just about 3 years, and I am so stoked to begin my coaching career at Haymount! My athletic background is largely individual sport like track and field; I love the pure competition of a 100 meter sprint or a one rep max deadlift. I also love the outdoors and can be found flinging myself down the mountains when the snow flies, or climbing up them in the summertime. It never ceases to amaze me how CrossFit makes me better at snowboarding or rock climbing or life. In “real life” I am currently serving at Ft. Bragg as a Religious Affairs NCO and I am also pursuing my associates degree in Physical Therapy Assistance. 

CrossFit Coach Emma Hensley
I’m Emma! I have been an athlete my whole life, mostly running track and field athlete in high school and college. After a decade of wear and tear on my knees, I knew I needed a change. I had heard of CrossFit through a friend and for awhile I thought, “it’s a cult, I don’t want to lift weights, and I definitely do not want to have big arms.” But, I reluctantly dropped into a class, returned the next day for more, and haven’t stopped almost 5 years later.
CrossFit and the community has made me a stronger person mentally and physically, it has given me some of my best friends, and it is where I met my husband. It continuously pushes me out of my comfort zone, allows to me workout and interact with athletes of all levels and abilities, and encourages me to be an overall better person.

I am excited to have found the Haymount community and be part of their awesome team!

CrossFit Coach Nick Rodriguez
Hi my name is Nick. I am from a small town, D’Hanis, Texas and i’mcurrently stationed at Fort Bragg. I started CrossFit in March of 2013 and have been doing it ever since. I played every sport I could growing up and used CrossFit to help me stay in shape. I obtained my Crossfitlevel 1 in May of 2017, coaching became a passion of mine because I loved seeing and helping people progress in their fitness journey’s. My message to anyone trying to get into CrossFit would be to trust your coaches and keep coming back because before you know it you’ll be doing things you thought you’d never be able to do!

CrossFit Coach Bobby Persun
I began Crossfit in 2012 and started coaching on and off in 2014. I love how challenging the workouts are and that every day is something new. My favorite thing about coaching is helping an athlete achieve a movement or accomplish a heavy lift that they didn’t believe they were capable of. My job is to make sure you never underestimate yourself, push hard during every workout, and do it in a safe way. We all have different personal goals, but together we can help each other towards the overall goal, which is better health and fitness. The community at Crossfit Haymount and I are here to support you in that pursuit.

CrossFit Coach Amanda Savage

I love helping others move well and seeing life change through fitness. I am proud to be a member and coach in the CrossFit Haymount Community.
