Our Staff

All of our coaches and the staff at Capstone CrossFit are focused on one thing... Helping you achieve your fitness goals. Our coaches are what makes Capstone CrossFit the best strength and conditioning program provider in Lubbock. Let's face it, there is a lot of noise out there telling you what you should do to get fit. With all of the gym offers, specialized machines, and infomercials, there can be a sense of skepticism and frustration about whom to trust and what really works. In all of the examples above, YOU have to research, identify, monitor, and modify your strength and conditioning program for it to be successful. And even if you consistently invest hours on your fitness, many of the programs, machines, and gym facilities simply cannot provide a program that produces full body fitness over the long term. At Capstone CrossFit, our coaches take care of all of this. All you have to do is consistently show up and push yourself in the workouts our coaches design. That is it. All of our coaches have completed various CrossFit training courses, and they are enthusiastic about motivating and instructing each of our members to achieve a higher level of fitness. Our coaches' experience and technical knowledge in applying the CrossFit methodologies will produce measurable results over time regardless of where your fitness level is when you start. Whether you are attending a scheduled CrossFit class, a CrossFit specialty class, or you have arranged individual personal training from one of our coaches, you will be receiving instructions, demonstrations, knowledge, and support that will take the guesswork out of getting fit. 


John Forburger - Gym Owner/Coach

CrossFit Level 1 (CF-L1) Trainer

CrossFit Level 2(CF-L2) Trainer


I am the owner of Capstone CrossFit. I fell in love with CrossFit back in 2011 and haven't looked back. I am a former Navy SeaBee, a husband and father. When I started here at Capstone, I was overweight, not happy with how I felt or looked. Over the course of my fitness journey, I have gone from overweight a depressed, to competitor, to janitor, to coach and finally, in January of 2017, the owner of Capstone! My passion is to see people do things they never believed they'd be able to do and CrossFit is my platform to make that happen! Let me introduce you to my team...

Geoff Lynn - Coach

CrossFit Level 1 (CF-L1) Trainer

Crossfit Endurance Trainer


Meet Coach Geoff! He is Capstone's original member from before Capstone was Capstone. He is one of the amazing pastors at Hillside here in Lubbock. He is also a great husband and father. Though he doesn't coach much anymore, he does our programming and is still active in our classes. 

Greg Gestes - Coach

CrossFit Level 1 (CF-L1) Trainer

Meet Coach Greg! He has been doing this for as long as I have and is an amazing technical coach. If you ever need to fuse 2 metals together or you just want to zero in on your form and nail a movement, this is the man to get you there!

Breanna Case - Coach

CrossFit Level 1 (CF-L1) Trainer

Coach Bre started as a member with her L1 a few years ago. She stepped in as our primary FIT coach since its inception and has absolutely crushed it. She's an awesome athlete but even better coach. She programs almost all of the core workouts in our FIT class and loves to challenge our members to push themselves!

Amy Ramirez - Coach

CrossFit Level 1 (CF-L1) Trainer

Meet Coach Amy! She is our vocal evening FIT coach. You can usually hear her coaching someone up from outside the building with the doors closed and music blasting. She is a great motivator and really likes to zero in on the technique that's going to help you move safely and efficiently through any workout. From a track coach to CrossFit and FIT, she's got a solid foundation to help build our community up. 

Davida Zant - Coach

CrossFit Level 1 (CF-L1) Trainer

Coach "David with an A" is another of our incredible members who wanted to do more than invest in only her own fitness. So she went and got her L1 and became a Capstone Coach. A wife and mother of 2, she works her butt off each day in the gym and always shows up prepared to help our community achieve whatever goals they may have. You can catch her coaching our noon class our refining her craft at various times of the day. 

Alec Jeffries - Coach

CrossFit Level 1 (CF-L1) Trainer

Coach Alec was the first coach I hired when we took over Capstone. He has been a great motivator and is great at making our members feel welcomed. He recently graduated from the Lubbock Police Academy and is now one of Lubbock's Finest. You can usually find him doing curls somewhere in the gym when he's not on duty. 

Caleb Schnieder- Coach

CrossFit Level 1 (CF-L1) Trainer

Here we have Coach Caleb. He's started here at Capstone around the same time I did. A former Tech football player under Coach Leach, he quickly excelled as a competitor and coach. CrossFit lead him to fall in love with fitness and he has spent the last couple of years branching out into body building. But don't let the muscles fool you,, he can still rep out some muscle-ups, run fast and lift heavy.
