Brooks enjoyed a true Montana childhood, immersed in rafting, backpacking and fishing in the summer, snowboarding and pond hockey all winter. He was also lucky enough to be involved in agriculture growing up and is proud of his family's background, carrying the name of his grandparents and the N.D. Cowboy Hall of Fame-inducted Brooks Ranch. Having a love and talent for all sports, Brooks was introduced to CrossFit while still in high school, from there he started exploring the endless opportunity, methodologies, training styles throughout the strength and conditioning world. Throughout his competitive career he qualified for the USA National Weightlifting championship. Brooks also has experience in coaching at the national level, as well as sport specific training for local athletes and teams. With this diverse background he developed a program for the betterment of his hometown, Great falls, MT.
Volta athletics (formerly Crossfit 406) was founded in September 2011. Over the years the staff has grown and the community has flourished. Our gym is now operated by a team of professional coaches in a premier 4,800 square foot facility.
Our values are contagious. COMMUNITY. FITNESS. LIFESTYLE. In that order. COMMUNITY is first because every person who steps through our doors is welcomed as family and will be treated as such. We want this to be the best hour of your day where you can be yourself and be amongst friends working towards a common goal. This community will hold you accountable and motivate you on the days you feel your worst and cheer for you the days you feel your best. FITNESS will be a byproduct of any decent workout regimen, but we believe our method to be tried and true. Your results will be measurable over time, whether your goal is weight loss, lifting more weight, or improving your conditioning – if you show up and put forth the effort, the results will happen. LIFESTYLE is our third value because we believe health is something you take with you wherever you go, whenever you go there. We want fitness and nutrition to become something you prioritize over the course of your lifetime, not just for a few months at a time. Your health is a lifelong journey that starts with you and is influenced by every decision you make and joining Volta athletics is a huge step in the right direction!
