Here are your Oxnard MVMNT friendly and professional staff!
Hi I’m Kolby, and I am super passionate about health and fitness and would love to share my love for the outdoors with you. I am a teacher at heart and my goal will always be to add value to your life. I grew up around sports my entire life, but it wasn’t until my college years that I discovered my passion to share fitness with others and learned a lot about how I can best do that.
The past 9 years I have been building my passions and finding useful and relevant information to pass on to others. I graduated from Pepperdine University with a degree in Sports Medicine and have studied under Michael Anderson of CrossFit Malibu. I now run Oxnard MVMNT as General Manager/Director of Operations. I have also fallen in love with the ocean and surfing after playing water polo for Pepperdine. In addition to being a coach, I am also an Ocean Lifeguard for The County of Los Angeles in Malibu. Spending most of my summers at the beaches keeping an eye out for beach patrons and learning more about the awesome power of the ocean.
If you want to see more play in your life, follow me on the road to better health!

Hello! I am Brenda or you can call me Beeks. If you were to tell me five years ago, I would be Head Coach of a CrossFit Gym, I would have hid between my slumped over shoulders and laughed. Oxnard|MVMNT has changed my life; first as an athlete, then coach. Now as Head Coach, I am here to help you change your life in the best possible way.
While my main goal is to just simply make a difference in someone’s life, whether it be a smile or a laugh, I realized that I wanted to narrow it down and make a difference through fitness. I want to make sure people are moving well for their entire life; making an entire lifestyle change because they WANT to not because they HAVE to. I want to be able to keep athletes moving well for as long as possible but MOST IMPORTANTLY I want people to LOVE the body they are in.
Since I have started CrossFit, I have gone through almost all scaling options because nothing ever came easy for me. I’ve gained 20+lbs of muscle but more than that, I’ve added 150+ more friends to my life which means 150+ more family members to my life!
MY BACKGROUND! I played soccer up until the age of fourteen. By high school, my best friend convinced me to try Water Polo. Did I mention I had to learn to swim? After four years of water polo, I went to a globo gym as I entered college, with my very own dad as a gym buddy. As far as college itself, I took some classes to enhance my knowledge in different sports and eventually received my B.S. in General Sociology from California State University, Northridge.
With the guidance of the MVMNT staff, I went from athlete, to cleaning bathrooms, to intern, to full time coach. Today, I am Head Coach of Oxnard MVMNT AND Chiropractor’s Assistant with Perform Better Chiropractic. With these two under my belt, I am able to fulfill my passion and goals every single day.
I cannot wait to meet you & make you laugh!

My name is Jeff and I’m one of coaches at Oxnard|MVMNT. I first started CrossFit back in 2011 with my wife (then fiancé) to get into shape before our wedding. After the first class I fell in love with the methodology and lifestyle that comes with being a functional fitness athlete.
In the beginning it was all about crushing the workouts and lifting heavy weights. Now that I’m older, married and a father of two, I am finding that there is much more to being fit than how fast I go or how heavy I can lift. My focus now is to be able to take all of the groceries from the car to the house in one trip, beat my kids in a race until they are 18, and be able to pick up my grandchildren and throw them in the air.
My full time job is in the healthcare industry and I spend a lot of my time in hospitals and medical clinics. Many people become unhealthy and develop chronic illnesses from a lack of exercise and not eating properly. Don’t let this be you! Come see me in an early morning class and we can talk about how I can help you achieve your short and long term fitness goals.

Glad you made it here, I’m Madi! Throughout my life I have grown an intense passion toward health and fitness which has had a huge impact on the direction my life was headed in. Enough of an impact to pursue a degree in Exercise Science, Health Promotion, & Recreation. What I love about my field of study is that I get to teach others greater awareness of their body which is so important because we only get one!
I joined Oxnard MVMNT as an athlete soon after I graduated college in 2016. I initially chose CrossFit because I was looking for something to void my post athlete depression (it’s a real thing). I played softball for 17 years from t-ball through college. Over those years I also played basketball, volleyball, soccer, and water polo. I was always passionate about softball but loved how skills from other sports improved my performance on the field. I played college ball at Colorado State University-Pueblo where I was recruited as a pitcher but also played first base and loved to hit. I received my L1 in May 2018 and then began the intern process here at MVMNT. I have been a Coach since January 2019 and am so lucky to love what I do.
Favorite Food: Ice cream! The healthy kind, bad kind, yogurt version, popsicle, by the scoop; All of it!

My name is Samantha Latham, or SamBam if we’re friends! I am one of the coaches at Oxnard|MVMNT, as well as the Head Nutrition Coach on staff. I started my CrossFit journey June 2018 and had no idea that it would flip my world upside down. CrossFit has changed who I am and who I am becoming, for the better. I want to use what I’ve learned and experienced in the past 10 years of my life to help you become the best version of your self. You can never be afraid to take the first step to changing your life and as a professional coach I am dedicated to educating myself so that I can help you make that journey as meaningful and fulfilling as I possibly can. Nutrition is a huge part of that journey and I am passionate about creating the best program that fits for YOU. Life is too short to not become the person you were meant to be.
