Rj Smith - Coach/Founder

Rj is a former DI soccer player (Davidson College/University of Denver), who started CrossFit in 2009 in Denver.  The competitiveness and push he got from CrossFit reminded him of his glory days on the pitch.  A year after starting he got his Level 1 and started coaching at CrossFit LoDo in Denver.  His passion for the sport led him to open his first gym in Denver in 2011 which he owned through 2013.  30 days after selling his first gym he opened CrossFit Omnia.  Within 5.5 years he was able to grow Omnia to one of the premier gyms in the state and country.  During his tenure, CrossFit Omnia made 3 CrossFit Games appearances (2016, 2017, 2018) with the highest finish of 13th in the World.  

Outside of the gym Rj enjoys anything active (minus hiking), traveling and hanging out with his wiener dog, Hugo.  Hobbies include playing golf, poker, camping, wake boarding, surfing, etc.  You might find him on the course, surfing on some foreign beach, or in Vegas doing god knows what.
