What do you think makes G6 so special?
- What makes G6 special to me is after doing my first workout and meeting the coaches and a few members, I immediately knew it was the box I wanted to be at. I've been part of a few boxes since starting CrossFit and while I've enjoyed them all, G6 was the first box I've been to that felt like family and since leaving my family and moving to Texas from California, that family feel at G6 has been one of the best things about moving here to Texas.


Corey has a love of CrossFit and a desire to constantly compete that is only surpassed by his passion for helping others accomplish their goals both in the box and in life. He sets a high standard for himself in all aspects of life, including his health and fitness, and expects others to do the same. He can often be found in the box outside of his coaching hours either working on a particular skill or pushing himself through a grueling workout. As a current student at the University of Texas at Arlington pursuing an MBA and Masters in Economics Corey juggles school, work, coaching, and his own athletic endeavors. However, as time consuming as all that may be, he never misses a chance to ask someone how their day has been or if he can help them work toward that first muscle up or handstand pushup (his personal favorite exercise). He strongly advocates not only consistent exercise but also a good diet, and also owns the meal prep company "WOD Market". Corey's hobbies include CrossFit, baseball, football, snowboarding, playing guitar for his friends, and grilling out by the pool.


My name is Justin Sibley and I grew up in and graduated from Midlothian. I have been lifting weights since I was 15 years old and have almost always had a passion for fitness.  I played every sport I could growing up but ended up sticking with soccer throughout High School.  I went on to get my bachelor's in Business Marketing from the University of Houston in 2007 and immediately moved back to DFW.  I did bodybuilding style workouts throughout college but for a long time I had been looking for something different.  I went through streaks in my life where I had stopped working out (fill in excuse here).  Then the breaking point finally came - I had become sick of going to the gym and went through the longest streak of not consistently going to the gym in my life.  About 6 months went by and I barely stepped foot in the gym and I saw myself getting more and more out of shape and unhappy about how I felt everyday.  I had heard about CrossFit from one of my younger brothers (Nathan) several years before but never gave it a chance.  Finally after some encouragement from my wife Toni (who had been wanting to try it for a long time) we decided to give it a shot.  We went to G6 at 6 AM in May of 2013 and did our first workout.  WOW is all I could say after I finally picked myself up off the floor after it was over.  I was hooked!  How do I sign up?!  We held on to our Globogym membership at LifeTime for about 3 months thinking maybe we would go there ever so often.  Nope! Only time we went back was to cancel our membership!  From that first workout on my wife and I have been obsessed with CrossFit (ask any of our friends or family - lol).  My only regret is not listening to my brother when he started CF.  I want to state that there is nothing wrong with the regular gym, zumba, boot camps, etc. if you are getting results and ENJOY it.  I got results for a long time and built up a strength base that has helped me in CrossFit and life but working out because you feel like you HAVE to and working out because you LOVE it are two different things! I now get to share my passion for CF and fitness with people everyday.  So far I have received my CFL1, CFL2, & CF Weightlifting Trainer Certificates.  I am going to continue to  pursue my training/coaching education and hope to start working on my L3 soon.

My name is Barbara Hampton, and I was raised here in Arlington, Texas. Growing up I played volleyball, ran track and cross country. Then in high school I swam for the varsity swim team at Martin High School. After high school I transitioned from swimming to working out at the gym going through leg, arm, and back bodybuilding style workouts. After a few years of that I had seen results, but I eventually became bored with my weekly routine. I had some friends and family that had been doing CrossFit for a few years and it seemed like something new to try out, so in March of 2015 I finally decided to give it a shot. After my first WOD, I was instantly hooked. I loved the competitive side of it, but I also loved the progress I had seen, and realizing what my body was capable of. In late August of 2015 I joined the G6 family, and received my Level 1 three months later. CrossFit and CFG6 has become a huge part of my life. The people that I met started out as my friends, and have turned into family. Everyone is there pushing each other and cheering each other on. I love being able to not only get in my own workout, but also to be able to coach our athletes and help them reach their own goals. The most rewarding thing to me about being a coach is having a member come up to you and tell you that they finally reached their weight loss goal, or witnessing someone PR a lift they’ve been working towards for months, or seeing the biggest smile on someone’s face after they get their first pull up! I couldn’t imagine spending my time anywhere else but G6, and I feel truly blessed to be apart of such an awesome community.
