CrossFit Coach
Drew Shepp


  • CrossFit Level 1


Drew, a former collegiate basketball player, was first exposed to CrossFit in 2017. It was a humbling but exhilarating experience. As he put it “I was simultaneously crushed and addicted at the same time!”

Over the next four years, Drew became a student of human performance and movement: attending different CrossFit gyms, kettlebell centers, and the local YMCA. In early 2021, he joined CrossFit Southpaw and dove headfirst into the world of CrossFit.

Outside of the gym, Drew is a pastor at Substance Church. He is fascinated by the interdependent nature of the body, mind, and spirit. He believes that the physical challenge we are confronted with while exercising helps build us into more resilient human beings – in all aspects of our life.

Drew earned his CrossFit Level 1 coaching certification in early 2022 and is now able to share his passion for fitness, his humble leadership, and strong work ethic with our members.

Drew lives in the Twin Cities with his wife, Erikka, and his four children. As he puts it: “In my free time I like to read large books, drink strong coffee, discover new ethnic restaurants with my wife, and hang with my amazing kids.”
