Ben Olin

Certified CrossFit Trainer (L3), CF Weightlifting, CF Gymnastics, NASM CPT, MobilityWOD Specialist

I was born in Toledo, attended Toledo Christian, and graduated with a Bachelors in Business Administration focused in Marketing.

Historically, I have not been an athlete—or even a fit person in general—but about 6 years ago I made a lot of changes in my life and taking care of my body was one of them. It’s for this reason I can empathize with those struggling to get started with such an important commitment and is also the very foundation on which The Standard was built.

Today, I’m a longevity advocate and believe fitness can push off the nursing home, improve an individual’s daily life, and reduce the incidence of preventable chronic disease.

I coach and compete regionally with CrossFit, enjoy running Tough Mudder and Spartan Races with my brothers, and love helping others!

sam woodring

CrossFit Level 1 Trainer

Born in Cleveland, Ohio and spent most of my life in Toledo. I have been doing CrossFit since 2017 and received my Level 1 Certification in 2018.

Outside of the gym I enjoy spending time with my Wife and Friends and watching Cleveland Indians baseball. 

I fell in love with CrossFit because of the community and the constant variance in workouts. I love helping people reach their goals and I’m encouraged daily by the awesome members we have at The Standard.

I was born in Toledo and graduated from UT with a High School Mathematics Degree. I am passionate about education and personal growth. 

My athletic experience includes both hockey and track. I’ve coached youth sports, personal training, and group fitness. I was first introduced to CrossFit in 2009 by my history teacher who is now a lifelong friend. I was instantly hooked! CrossFit has broaden my scope of fitness and health. Love to celebrate all types of fitness. I hope to be working out in my 70s like my Poppy (who you’ll find in our noon class).

kayla genson

CrossFit Level 1 Trainer, CF Weightlifting

Fun fact: I was born in Germany, but have no recollection of it because I was raised in the Toledo area since I’ve been one year old. I currently live in Oregon, and love being so close to our downtown area. 

I graduated from Bowling Green State University with a bachelors in Medical Laboratory Science. Currently, I work full time as a Microbiologist for Toledo hospital. My next venture is working toward my nutrition coaching certification.

I started my CrossFit journey back in 2013 when I was trying to lose my freshman “15” weight. Even though I did lose weight, it isn’t about the weight loss anymore. CrossFit taught me that my body is strong and capable of much more than I give it credit for. I also learned that I have the best dance moves during warm ups and between lifting sets, which you will see me do regularly while I’m in class. 

CrossFit has turned into a lifelong journey for me, and I am excited to help our members and future members on their journey.

Logan Genson

CrossFit Level 1 Trainer

I was born in Toledo and currently attend the University of Toledo where I will be obtaining my bachelors degree in History, and then transitioning to education. 

My athletic background includes football and track. I am passionate about educating young athletes, as I have been doing it for eight years! I was introduced to CrossFit in 2009 when my favorite teacher started an after school workout program following CrossFit.com workouts. After completing the workout Fran in about 20 minutes I was hooked! I love seeing the positivity and sense of community that CrossFit creates, as it has created lifelong friendships inside and outside the gym.
