  • Bradley Schneller

    FOUNDER / HEAD COACH

    Bradley was a musician in his past life who always had a passion for sports and athletics. An LSU grad with a love for high-endurance sports, Bradley found CrossFit as a perfect fit to his lifestyle. He discovered during his personal fitness journey that his passion for sports and athletics carried over to coaching and training people in becoming stronger, healthier and happier versions of themselves. So CrossFit Roux was born.

    Bradley shares his members’ joy in their first “a-ha” moment – he loves celebrating that significant moment when a member reaches their first goal. To him each goal met is monumental and looks forward to being a part of many more of these moments.
