Coaching is critical. 

Your coach helps you focus, corrects your mistakes, and always encourages you. Our coaches care.  They are knowledgeable, approachable, and devoted to your success.

I believe that everyone is an athlete, regardless of current ability or past experience. I do not tolerate subpar movement in my classes and work to inspire my athletes to become the best possible movers. CrossFit is more than just a fitness program for me, it is a way of expressing our true potential as human beings. I have coached CrossFit for 10 years and I am one of only a handful of Certified CrossFit Coaches (CF-L4) worldwide. When not in the gym, I travel the world as a CrossFit Seminar Staff member teaching both the Level 1 and Level 2 Seminars. 

"There are few coaches that are able to effectively blend technical ability, passion, and the capacity to understand and address an athlete's weaknesses as well as Coach Hollis. Hollis Molloy is a coach's coach."

I've been coaching for years, and as a coach, I enjoy working with entry-level athletes because they have everything in the world to discover about CrossFit. I apply the positive coaching methods I enjoyed as a young athlete to my CrossFit coaching style. Prior to CrossFit, I had a gymnastics-coaching career that spanned 15 years. I coached ages 18 months to 22 years in both recreational classes and competitive teams, with many of my athletes competing in state, regional and national competitions.

I'm a CrossFit Level 3 Trainer (CF-L3) and have attended CrossFit seminars in Gymnastics, Olympic Weightlifting, Nutrition, and Mobility and Recovery. I've been coaching since 2009 and have been a part of the CrossFit HQ Seminar Staff since 2012, where I travel the world instructing CrossFit Level 1 and Level 2 Seminars. I've competed at regionals six times and at the CrossFit Games five times. I love CrossFit—not only for what it can do for the body, but even more so for what it can do for the mind. I love seeing people achieve something they never thought possible, then taking that confidence and mentality into their everyday lives.

After seven years of CrossFit, I am still continuing to learn and improve in anything from Olympic lifting to endurance to gymnastics. There's something magical about Coach Glassman's vision of group training and intensity that allows this improvement to continue.

I began working for CrossFit HQ and attended the CrossFit Level 1 Certificate Course in 2012. I then moved to San Luis Obispo to attend Cal Poly, where I completed my B.S. in kinesiology. I immediately joined CrossFit Inferno where I soon began their intern process and eventually became a CrossFit coach. Over time, my passion to share CrossFit with adults expanded to kids. In October 2013, I participated in the CrossFit Kids course, which trained me to safely teach CrossFit to kids.
