Chris Shaffer is a man that I am and will be indebted to for the rest of my life. Before Crossfit Bezel, Shaffer was a volleyball coach for me. As a high school student, he would practice me and even put me through some of the most challenging volleyball practices to date. I remember those practices vividly. I had so much to work on and Shaffer was there to help me work on every aspect of my game. After my high school days, I began to dream of playing in college. I was a year removed from volleyball and told Shaffer about my dream of playing volleyball at the collegiate level. Shaffer helped me to raise my fitness level, build muscle, worked on my agility and plyometrics, and volleyball skills. I was a strong player beforehand however, Shaffer knew what it took to take my game to the next level. Shaffer pushed me to be better than I ever thought I could be. He motivated me and made me much more discipline as an athlete. Through Shaffers’ training, I was able to receive an athletic scholarship and compete at the NCAA level of competition for volleyball. Through my collegiate career, Shaffer continued to work with me over the holidays and over the summer. He made sure I never lost a step when I returned back to the court. Through the years I received many accolades for my athletic performance such as Libero of the Year honors during my senior season. None of that would have been possible without the help of Shaffer. He really helped me see how important fitness was to me developing myself as a player.

By opening the door to this aspect of my life, Chris Shaffer lead me to many opportunities in Bristol, TN. After graduating from college, I received numerous coaching offers where I could begin to apply what Shaffer had taught me over the years to my own volleyball athletes. I have coached a variety of levels from club, high school, boys, girls, and even at the collegiate level. I was the primary defensive volleyball coach for King University for three years. The experience I received from Shaffer combined with a few other life experiences has helped to land me in my current occupation. I’m currently the Head Women’s Volleyball Coach at King University where I am able to apply the volleyball skills, fitness level, agility goals, and overall player conditioning for my athletes here at King. Without Shaffer helping me to develop my own athletic ability, the door would have never opened for me to continue my volleyball development here at King. Shaffer is one of the most instrumental role players in my development as an athlete, coach, and person. If ever there was a volleyball coach that helped to mold me and develop me it was Chris Shaffer. The level that he cares about developing his athletes in all aspects of life is beyond reproach. Shaffer is committed to developing his athletes and preparing them for whatever level or challenge they are trying to tackle. Coaching at a variety of levels, Shaffer knows what it takes to make any athlete be able to perform in the arena of volleyball. I support Chris Shaffer wholeheartedly in any undertaking he tries to pursue. In the realm of volleyball, Shaffer can and will nurture any athlete to be successful.  For that, I will always be grateful and thankful for him and what he has done for me and my life.
