We are more than just a gym at Flatland Crossfit. We are a community creating the fittest people in Lubbock, TX. It is no secret that Crossfit training is hard work. It can look overwhelming and daunting but the truth is anyone can do it. Just like with any kind of skill, it takes time and practice to develop talent and mastery. And, that is why we are here. We are here to help you realize your true potential, that you can do Crossfit.
All of our coaches at Flatland Crossfit are at least Crossfit Level 1 Certified Instructors, ready and devoted to helping you improve and achieve your fitness goals. Each Crossfit class is managed and monitored by a Flatland Crossfit Coach to give you the encouragement and personal attention you need.
It is important to us to focus on proper technique before increasing the difficulty of any exercise. Every movement and exercise is scalable to meet your individual level of fitness. It is because of this core concept of Crossfit that makes our members so diverse. We have elite athletes to those that have never stepped inside a gym. We have members who are young and members that are more on the grey-haired side. We even have members working out that have had previous existing injuries. Each member works out to his or her current level of fitness.
Getting fit in 20 minutes or less…
We pride ourselves in programming broad, general, and inclusive Crossfit WODS that are constantly varied, functional movements performed at high intensity. Meaning what? We, at Flatland Crossfit, arrange workouts with different combinations of movements that the body was designed for and performs daily, such as squats, and execute them at a high level of intensity and speed. The results are much more effect than the two hours spent at the gym doing the same thing. And not only can you get it done in such a small amount of time, but you will also never ever get bored working out again.

Kick out that two-hour same ole routine. Join Flatland Crossfit and get the same benefit in 20 minutes or less with workouts that are different every day.


Tobias Sultan

Owner of Flatland CrossFit and CrossFit Coach

I am CrossFit level 1 certified, Crossfit Olympic Lifting certified, and CrossFit Mobility certified. I have been doing CrossFit consistently since December 2011. I got CrossFit Level 1 certified in January 2012. Before I did CrossFit I thought I was in great shape, but after I did my first WOD I realized I didn’t know the first thing about fitness. Since then I have gotten in a lot better shape and I am continuing to learn about fitness and getting better at CrossFit. CrossFit has changed my life and has given me so much more confidence in every area of my life and I know that it has the ability to do the same for anybody who wants to try it out.

Carleigh Latham

CrossFit Coach

I started CrossFit in June of 2011 and have never looked backed. I got my CrossFit Level 1 Certificate in August of 2013 and been coaching ever since. I got my Mobility Certification in January of 2014 and have applied it to all my coaching. I started out as a ballet teacher and taught for 7-8 years but now I enjoy coaching CrossFit at Flatland CrossFit.

Manny Ramirez

CrossFit Coach

I was introduced to CrossFit in September 2012. In November 2014 I became a CrossFit Level 1 Trainer. I initially came to Flatland in support a friend who did not want to try CrossFit alone. After a couple of WOD’s, I was hooked. CrossFit has changed my perspective in health and fitness. The immense love, support and encouragement from the Flatland community made me become more passionate about CrossFit. I have built lifelong friendships through Flatland. I CrossFit because I want to be able to keep up with my daughter. I CrossFit because my wife and I push and support each other within our health and fitness lifestyle. I am blessed to be a part of Flatland CrossFit.

Emily Holt

CrossFit Coach

I was introduced to CrossFit in 2009 and decided it just wasn’t for me. But I still did it off and on because deep down I knew there was something awesome and life-changing about CrossFit, I just didn’t want to admit it. In 2012, something triggered and I began to see the positive effects it had on both my physical and mental health. I saw how showing up and giving 100% effort every day empowered me and everyone else in the gym, and how that empowerment carried over into day-to-day life. I found Flatland in July of 2015 and got CrossFit Level 1 certified soon after. The fitness aspect of Flatland is superior, but the community, support, and acceptance I have found here is even better! I can’t believe I found such a great place and am so excited to get to be a part of this team of coaches and athletes. Come see for yourself how CrossFit at Flatland will change your life!

Jonathan Kouts

CrossFit Coach

I was raised in a small farming and mining community in southeastern Arizona. I graduated from Safford High School with both academic and athletic recognition. I then attended a local community college on a full academic scholarship where I earned an Associate’s degree in science and graduated with honors. I interrupted my education for two years to serve an ecclesiastic and service mission in Santiago, Chile where I became fluent in Spanish. Upon my return, I resumed my education and attended a university in Hawai’i from which I graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Pre-Professional Biology and a minor in Biochemistry with hopes of attending medical school. During the last semesters of study I met the woman that would become my wife. We courted and later married in Lubbock, Texas where she had been accepted to finish her undergraduate studies at Texas Tech. I am currently employed by UMC as an anesthesia technician in the operating room. I am also studying and continuing to apply for acceptance into medical school. I found my love for CrossFit after returning from South America. From the first day that I tried it, I was hooked and never looked back! I loved being involved in competitive organized sports I high school, but I knew that I would not be able to both play a collegiate sport and maintain a competitive scholarly performance. Crossfit more than satisfies my craving for a physical challenge as well as my competitive nature. I have found that it also serves the role of being a teammate as part of the CrossFit community. I enjoy challenging myself as an athlete but I prefer helping others become their best self, as a coach. I thrive on gaining new knowledge as a coach and being able to convey that knowledge into easily understood cues while continuing my education within physical fitness.

Ashley Sewell

YOGA Instructor

I am the “Yoga Coach” here at Flatland. I’ve held a Primary Yoga Certification and Advanced Yoga Certification through FiTOUR® since 2012. I also hold a Group Centergy certification through a company called MOSSA which I received in 2007. I’ll be honest…I NEVER thought I would be one of “thoooooose” Crossfit lovin’ people. I’m a busy mom of two toddlers, a wife, AND 4th grade teacher. It was never really my thing until my husband (a former “gym hater”) joined Flatland in 2014. I watched Crossfit literally change his life in a matter of months. He convinced me to try a class with him, and I haven’t looked back since. Okay…so Yoga?? It is the PERFECT complement to Crossfit! I can’t tell you how many times I hear people say things like, “I’m SO not flexible, or dang I’m sore!” Luckily I can help! The Yoga I teach is designed for the hesitant “what have I gotten myself into beginner” to your hardcore athlete and everyone in-between. So, no matter where you are in your fitness journey, you will benefit from Yoga. We work primarily on the fundamentals that will increase your flexibility and mobility, which will take your WOD to the next level. (Seriously, I could talk about more benefits ALL day…but I’ll stop here!) Oh, and here at Flatland, we are SUPER laid back, we have fun, AND the music is great!
