Tim Bell


When did you start doing CrossFit?

July 2016

What were you doing before Crossfit?

I was just a member of a local health club and I ran between 10-15 miles per week.

Tell us something we might not know about you.

I have an unlimited amount of phrases I repeat. One of my most famous: here’s the deal.

What advice would you give someone just starting at Coyote?

Leave your ego at the front door give it your best effort!

Do you have any special memories/achievements during your time at Coyote?

The Steven Sahler vs Tim Bell bench press competition(I lost miserably), my first open workout, rowing a marathon and TTB!


Has CrossFit affected your life outside of the gym?

Definitely!!  Crossfit is more than just a workout, its community and family.  The relationships that I have developed because of Coyote are invaluable to me and my son. Most everything were a part of is because of Coyote.


Tell us a little about yourself (family, job, sports, interests, etc.)

I have a 4 year old son named Brooks. You will most likely see him at the gym on Saturday mornings leaving chalk drawings for Chris Allen to admire before he cleans the floor (Sorry Bro).  I’ve been in food sales for 7 years and I work for Sysco in Jackson. I played most sports growing up and after I realized I couldn’t hit a curveball and I was not that great as a goalie in soccer, I settled on football.  I was fortunate enough to receive a scholarship to play at South Carolina for Lou Holtz.  I enjoy hunting and fishing during my down time, which is not very often these days.  I stay pretty busy with my son, work, and the gym.


What were your thoughts after your first WOD?

Why did I let Steven Sahler talk me into this? And did I really sign up for a year?

What were your goals when you joined Coyote?

At first it was just to prove to myself that I could do Crossfit and improve my overall physical health.

Have you achieved any of these goals?

I believe I have reached some of these goals .  When I started this year, I wanted to do the Open Rx and not scale any of the workouts and I did accomplish that this year.

What is your favorite cheat meal?

Milk and Cookies (Oreos)
