Tim Leblanc was born in New Orleans, Louisiana but traveled much throughout his youth with his dad working in the oil industry. Living throughout Texas for most of his youth, he finally settled in Houston and graduated from Woodlands, High School.
At an early age, Tim grew up playing T-Ball and YMCA swimming and eventually went into other sports such as soccer and baseball. Tim decided to settle on football, soccer, rugby and lacrosse in high school.
In college, Tim went on to walk on at Colorado State University as a punter. Colorado State soon realized that Tim could be better utilized as a fullback and so they asked him if he was able to put on an additional 40lbs. Tim gladly took on the challenge and finished his football career after graduating from Colorado State University.
After college, Tim had an immense passion to join the Special Forces in the military and began to focus his mindset and training to reach that goal. He had heard through a recruiter that CrossFit was being used as a type of training to prepare for the military, and he began to follow the CrossFit main site workouts for a while.
Soon his wife became pregnant and due to a hearing loss from birth, his chances at being allowed to join the military began to slip away. However, Tim’s passion for this type of training remained, and he continued to pursue CrossFit at a high level.
After researching many of the top programs in the country, Tim settled on using Brute Strength as his main form of training and fell in love with the team and specialty coach idea that Brute offered as opposed to the competitors.
Tim started as an athlete with Brute and was constantly helping out the Brute coaches by answering questions from the community. The team at Brute took notice and began to give Tim opportunities to grow within the company.
Over time, Tim took over the gymnastics programming and helps with video analysis of athletes technique on gymnastics exercises. What Tim loves the most about working with Brute is the wide array of athletes he gets to work with and help with their development, ranging from the elite to the weekend warriors.
Watching them progress through the sport of fitness and being able to celebrate those victories with them is why he is passionate about working alongside the Brute coaches and athletes.
