Anne LundyCF Coach
Anne is a proud mother of one daughter, Alia, age 25 who is an aspiring film producer. She was raised in the Bay Area, mostly in Vallejo and went to college at UC Davis.
Anne received her CrossFit Certified Level 1 in May 2013. She remembers doing her first Crossfit WOD on Feb 8th, 2007; it was a Tabata of pull-ups (in which she did ring rows), push-ups (which she did on her knees), sit-ups (she did crunches), and squats (or not so much squatting, more like a slight bend at the knee).
3 years later, at age 40, she was able to do all of these movements and more!
Anne loves CrossFit and all the wonderful, positive affects it’s had on her life: her improved health, strength and new physical skills. She especially loves the community (or communities). “I’ve lived in a few counties the last 7 years and in each one, I’ve made lifetime friends through my boxes. In just this last year since I’ve moved to Marin County, I’ve met so many amazing people at TCF, that I feel at home. I’m very fortunate and grateful, I have found my passion through CrosFit and it is my commitment as a part of the TCF family to help others improve and to always improve myself and be the best coach I can be.”

Collin HildenCF Coach
Collin was born and raised here in San Francisco. Throughout his life he has participated in wide range of athletic activities such as gymnastics, baseball, and backpacking. Collin found his passion for CrossFit right out of College. He began coaching soon after and continued to explore the realm of stability and mobility with the help of Kelly Starrett.
He believes in having a great time in the gym and helping clients leave the gym feeling better than they did when they walked in.
Collin decided to dive deeper into the world of soft tissue body work. He received his certification in Structural Integration (Rolfing) in 2013 and has been working with clients of all athletic abilities. His goal with body work is to use applied pressure with movement repatterining to “iron out” all the aches and pains that impede us from performing our best in and outside of the gym.

Rye OConnorCF Coach
Born and raised in Marin, Rye O’Connor ran cross country and played baseball competitively growing up. When he rediscovered working out and fitness, something was missing, the fun of group settings and camaraderie. Rye fell in love with CrossFit his first WOD. Which was a bear complex with running with Coach Anne! That was over 5 years ago.
“CrossFit has really changed my life, the community coupled with the quality workouts create a positive environment that is second to none. My goal as a coach is to show people that they can have fun, while improving mobility and strength.”
When not at the gym he can be found traveling the United States as a professional race car driver in Formula Drift. “CrossFit helps so much in racing as we are often put in harsh conditions and asked to perform at the highest level.”
Rye obtained his L1 Certification in March of 2022 to expand his knowledge of CrossFit and to be able to share his love of CrossFit with others.
