Aaron Lamey

Head Coach

Aaron Lamey was born and raised in Biloxi.  Growing up active and athletic, regular boring gym routines did not supplement his lifestyle.  He started CrossFit in 2011 and was hooked instantly to the training methodology, the competitiveness, and the community.  Being faced with a different challenge everyday by the workouts is what kept Aaron doing CrossFit consistently over the last several years.  Always trying to recruit others to come over to the dark side, Aaron was able to talk Coach Chad into trying CrossFit and the rest is history. Since helping Chad start Crooked Letter CrossFit in his garage, Aaron is proud of how far they have come.

Christy Radich

COACH

Christy Radich has been doing CrossFit for about four years.  She started because she always loved working out and staying fit, but found regular gyms boring and that finding a consistent workout partner was hard. Her husband, Chad, already did CrossFit and loved it, so she started with him.  She loves teaching others, so she decided to obtain her CFL1 certification to help Chad start his CrossFit gym.
Christy has a Bachelor’s in Early Education from the University of Southern Mississippi and is the director of Future Scholars Learning Center, so obtaining her certification for Kids CrossFit was a natural fit. She coaches the Kids Program and assists in coaching the adults when needed.  Christy oversees and operates the business portion for her and Chad’s two learning centers as well as Crooked Letter CrossFit.

Seth Conn

COACH

Seth Conn was born and raised in Southern California and grew up very active, playing football, wrestling, and track. Once he graduated high school, he decided to join the US Air Force and become a fireman. Seth always envied how firemen conducted themselves, staying physically fit, and always putting others before themselves, so the military was his way in.
Throughout Seth’s first few years in the service, he managed to stay in shape, but a traditional gym routine wasn’t giving him the satisfaction that he needed both physically and mentally.  He knew he needed a change, and that’s when he found CrossFit. A few months after getting stationed in Biloxi, Seth and some friends walked into the old Crooked Letter for the 2018 CrossFit open, and he instantly fell in love with everything about it… the workouts were extremely challenging and the community was awesome. Seth signed up for a membership immediately, and not long after that he knew that getting his Level-1 was something he needed to do! Helping people and motivating them to do better and reach their goals is one of the best feelings in the world and Seth is so thankful to be a part of it!
When he’s not at the fire department or at the gym coaching/working out, Seth enjoys playing his guitar, going to the beach, and most importantly, traveling!

Kourtney Kuehn

COACH

Kourtney Kuehn was born in Biloxi, Mississippi, but grew up in Fort Walton Beach, Florida, with her twin sister and grandfather. She was a competitive cheerleader throughout middle school and high school where helped her find her love for health and fitness. She moved back to the Biloxi Coast in 2011 and got into the sport of bodybuilding. 
After competing in her first bodybuilding show she realized putting on more muscle was key to win the sport. She instantly started Powerlifting to achieve more muscle mass and realized her strength was more exciting to her. She competed in her first Powerlifting Meet at the APA World’s Competition and won first in her weight class and all-around best lifter. For the next 5 years, she competed in 12 Powerlifting Meets and won pound for pound Best Lifter at every meet. After becoming top 3 in her weight class in the world and maintaining all Mississippi state records, she felt she needed a change. She wanted to try out Olympic Lifting and that’s when she ended up at Crooked Letter CrossFit! After 2 years of tough workouts and watching the community blossom, she pursued her CrossFit Level-1 and shortly after her USA Weightlifting Certification. After a year of Coaching, she felt it was time to expand her knowledge for the athlete at Crooked Letter CrossFit and obtained her CrossFit Level-2 Certificate. Being a Property Management Recruiter, CrossFit is her outlet and gives her the strength to work off stress and spend time with the community. When she isn’t busy at work or Coaching, she enjoys spending time with her family, wakeboarding, working out, and playing with her Golden Retriever!

Todd Wilson

COACH

Todd Wilson played football at The University of Southern Mississippi and graduated in 2009 with a Bachelors in Exercise Science. After college, he pursued football for a couple years and played one season of Arena Football. He knew about CrossFit after college, but delayed starting because he was focused on getting to the next level in football. Todd says that if he knew then what he knows now, he would have dropped football and got into CrossFit. He started his CrossFit journey in 2013 with Coaches Aaron and Chad at E-Fitness in Biloxi.
He had coached some classes there, but wasn’t certified and knew very little about Olympic Weightlifting. Once E-Fitness closed, and he started a new job at Ingalls Shipbuilding, he began doing CrossFit at home on his own.  In 2015, Coach Aaron asked him to do a competition with him and Chad. Up until that point, Todd just did CrossFit because it was fun and it reminded him of the workouts they would do for football.  After the three won their division in the competition, that’s when he made CrossFit a lifestyle. Todd joined the Crooked Letter family right after that. Todd is now going on his 2nd year of coaching at Crooked Letter. Last year, he started teaching and coaching football at D’Iberville High School. Outside of the gym, Todd spends time with his wife, Stephanie, and kids, Jacee and Rock. He also go to church at Ocean Springs Assembly where he plays the drums and bass on the worship team. Todd enjoys spending time with friends, watching football and the occasional cheat meal!

Cayla Breland

COACH

Cayla Breland grew up in the small town of Stringer, MS.  She grew up competing in dance and cheerleading.  After high school, she continued to cheer at Jones County Junior College, until she decided that her education was a little more important.  She then attended William Carey where she earned her Bachelors and Masters in Math Education.  She is also a wife and mom to her son, Paxton.
Her love for working out started with excessive running.  She then began competing in bodybuilding nationally for 4 years.  She quickly realized this was not the life for her and CrossFit seemed like a much healthier choice for her mentally and physically.  She and her husband joined Crooked Letter in April of 2018 and instantly fell in love with every part of CrossFit.  She found herself coming early and staying late for every class just so she could be a part of the atmosphere and motivating others.  She knew becoming a trainer at Crooked Letter is exactly what she wanted to do.
When Cayla is not at the gym, she spends her time teaching math at St. Martin High School.  She looks forward to helping you become your best self!
