Brad Newbery

Owner, Strength & Conditioning Coach Sgt. USMC

I served my country in the United States Marine Corps from 1999-2004. I served three tours in the Middle East including Iraq during Operation Iraqi Freedom. I left the Marines as a Sergeant with a strong respect for the importance of physical fitness. After leaving the Marines I became a fire fighter and now work in Concord. As I took on different physical fitness endeavors  including men’s lacrosse, skiing, and the performance needed to be a fire fighter I found Crossfit and never looked back. With coaching from my wife Steph, Tom, and online videos I  spent the first year doing WOD’s out of my garage and in the basement of the firehouse. I quickly realized a need to better understand Crossfit and to pass on that knowledge to others. I have always had a strong desire to coach and teach leading me to become Level 1 Certified.

I am the proud father of two boys. Will has a mean squat depth, and Daniel has a future in Strong Man.  I truly enjoy working with people and sharing with them my love for the sport of fitness.

Ian Butman

A retired Concord Fire Fighter/Paramedic after 27 years, Ian likes to spend his free time hiking in the White Mountains. He played Soccer and Lacrosse in school, was an avid rock climber. Later, he went on to compete in many Triathlons including the Ironman qualifier held in Sunapee, NH.

In 2008 he had a catastrophic shoulder injury leaving his left arm paralyzed for 10 months. Although physical therapy helped he was looking for better results. In 2009 he began doing CrossFit on his own mixed in with traditional track workouts and found greater improvement in his shoulder from this activity. Today Ian likes to focus on CrossFit-Strongman and CrossFit-Rowing work. Both of his daughters are heavily involved with CrossFit, one as a coach here at White Mountain, and the other at a a gym in DC.

Skye Fierros

Strength & Conditioning Coach

After graduating from UNH I discovered helping someone do something they never thought possible to be my passion. I found CrossFit in 2011 and was immediately drawn to how much it pushed me outside of my comfort zone yet surrounded me with like minded and supportive people. Before CrossFit I was a runner and through CrossFit I found a love for Olympic weight lifting. Outside the walls of WMCF you can find me coaching children in gymnastics and ninja.

Nick began high school at Tilton School in 2012 as a freshman. In preparation for the high level of sports that are played at prep school, Nick began his fitness journey the summer before starting at Tilton. Nick was heavily involved in sports throughout his four years at Tilton, playing hockey all four years and lacrosse for three. After finding CrossFit in the fall of his sophomore year, 2013, he began introducing it to friends and teammates at school. By the fall of his senior year, 2015, Nick had attained his CrossFit Level 1 Certificate, using it to help coach friends and teammates at the school gym and the gym he has at home in his garage. After graduating from Tilton in 2016 Nick used his CF L-1 and volunteered with the strength and conditioning program at Tilton School working with the hockey team he had previously played on. Nick was also one of the assistant coaches for the hockey program that same year. Nick has been doing CrossFit for 5+ years and has been at WMCF for 4 of those years. Nick came on as a coach in the early spring of 2017. In addition to having his CF L-1 Nick also has his CrossFit Kids Certification. He enjoys working with all age groups and fitness and athletic abilities but has a real passion for having a positive impact on kids and teens through CrossFit.
