Mitch Stout

CrossFit, Personal Training, Boot Camp


Grew up in Indianapolis, Indiana all my life playing sports starting around the age of 3. My competitive drive and father’s work ethic made me put full effort into every sport I tried growing up. I played soccer, baseball, wrestling, basketball, football, and track. I’ve been a traveling husband since August 2010. My wife, Jessie, is currently in Fellowship at UAMS. We have lived in Kansas City, MO / Columbia, MO / currently in Little Rock with all you lovely people.

You could call me an old man when it comes to doing CrossFit (since September 2009). Found CrossFit after being burnt out from long distance running and globo gym routine. I was trying to find that competitive edge & drive again I had when I played sports growing up. I’ve never looked back and have enjoyed the journey we call CrossFit.



Ever since I’ve found CrossFit in 2009, I have had the urge to spread the word of fitness to people every place I’ve landed. The influence it makes on us outside the box is what truly makes it special. The improved health and wellness CrossFit gives me and others today are an amazing feat. We have never seen this type of impact in the fitness industry. The simplicity and effectiveness is mind-blowing and coaching people to see them achieve what they never thought was possible is my true passion for coaching CrossFit.

Set goals. Set them high. You may not reach them, but I bet you accomplish something you never thought you could in the process. It never gets easier in CrossFit, but I can guarantee it gets less hard over time. I feel honored to join you on your journey here at WRCF and can’t wait to see you work your butt off every single day you walk into the gym.
