Coach Murray lives to inspire people! Jason was born in a fitness world. He competed in wrestling as a young adult and has thrived to train fellow friends and family. Working at a stand still job for 10 years, he decided it was time to work on a Fitness Regimen. He began researching Tabata, when he stumbled upon CrossFit in 2010. On October 3rd 2010, Jason went through a life threatening experience, involving rip tides in Bodega Bay.
By October 26th he turned his love for fitness into a career and became a CrossFit Level 1 Trainer. He started off in an apartment complex, shared garage. Where workouts were incorporating not only the safety of Athletes, but also the safety of his neighbor's car! Today he is finally a proud Coach with a box to call "HOME" - CrossFit RESTORE.
I am Mrs. Murray. I have had the privilege to work along side my husband. I was an Esthetician when Jason started our CrossFit life in 2010. Within a couple of years after juggling a full time job and managing the gym, I was able to dedicate my time solely to CrossFit Restore. I have been blessed with a job that I love, a community like no other, with a husband who is passionate about helping others, with a five year-old daughter named Camille and a 3 year-old daughter named Mia.

CF Level 1 Trainer
Hi! I’m Coach Matt, a Level 1 CrossFit Coach with CrossFit Restore since September 2020. I’m here to help others train hard to reach their goals and recover well so they can do it again! My favorite thing about CrossFit is that it is alive and evolving to deliver the best health and fitness modality. That and the feeling of being more superhuman like each week. My favorite thing about coaching is sharing the experience with athletes achieving new PR's. I have an athletic background in wrestling and football and like most athletes have personal experience with diet changes, training hard, fatigue, injury, and burnout. After being young, reckless, and athletic I started a family. I stopped exercising and started working, stopped eating for nutrition and started eating for convenience, and I went from getting restful nights of sleep to opportunistic napping day or night. When I re-emerged and found fitness again the first step was recovery. It started with yoga and meditation, then gardening and cooking, hiking, weight training, saunas, ice baths, AND THEN… CrossFit! If only someone had told me about it earlier;) My body, mind, and spirit has responded well to this new experience. I enjoy my time at Restore with a community made up of great coaches and athletes who are like friends and family.
CF Level 1, CF Level 2
I started doing CrossFit-like workouts in 2009 after hitting a mean plateau in my meat-head workouts. At the time, I didn’t think CrossFit was cool yet, so I refused to associate with the brand….silly pride. Eventually, I joined my first CrossFit gym in OKC in 2010 back when we were all wearing ultra-minimalist shoes and tiny shorts. After several deployments to the middle-east and trying to learn this CrossFit thing on my own, I moved to Roseville in late 2011 where I joined Rocklin CrossFit. One of the head coaches there may have had a big role in me becoming a coach later on. He cared about his athletes, he pushed them/us to discover new levels of fitness we didn’t know we were capable of, and he had a sort of effortless way of coaching that made his athletes want to follow his cues. Pretty sure I’ve subconsciously picked up some traits from him in my coaching. He also got me hooked on weightlifting. Fast forward to 2014, and I get orders to NATO Base Geilenkirchen in Germany. Luckily, there is a tiny military affiliate on base and about 8 coaches - one being a weightlifter on a local german team. Working out for 3 years with them, I decide to pull the trigger and get my Level 1 in Frankfurt, Germany. It was an eye-opening experience and lit a fire under me to start coaching. Not having structured classes in our little gym, it was difficult to get some really good coaching experience. We were able to put together some powerlifting and weightlifting specialty clinics which was a good opportunity to focus my new eagerness for coaching. I also coached one of our athletes through preparation and participation in her first local competition. At that point, I realized how much I LOVED seeing my athletes thrive, work hard, and see the results of their hard work. It’s hard to top the feeling that I get when I witness the joy of one of my athletes hitting a PR, seeing the light bulb come on when I’m teaching a movement, reaching a lifelong goal, or pouring it all out in a competition. I take extreme ownership in my athletes, can be very protective, but I also push them beyond their comfort zones when the time is right. Next chapter took me to middle Georgia where I was a member of two different CrossFit gyms. The first gym is where I specialized in weightlifting for a bit and ended up competing in a local USAW meet and placing 2nd. At the 2nd gym there in GA, I landed my first official coaching job running three classes a week. In January, I went to get my Level 2 at CrossFit Mayhem. Felt like I was being force-fed humble pie through a fire hose. It was a truly great experience, though. After that, the wife and I pack up and drive back to California. I told her I was going to try every CrossFit gym within 20minutes of the house before making my decision…and I did. After trying them all, I determined that I appreciated the accountability that Jason upholds in his classes and his brand. REstore has also been one of the most welcoming environments I’ve been in, too. Being a socially introverted person, I truly appreciated how easy the other athletes and coaches were to talk to. Making a long story short, Jason and Steph convinced me to start coaching and thus the learning began! I look forward to lots more coaching of our amazing athletes!
Best place to get a good work out in!! I get the best work out coming here, better than going to the gym. Jason is amazing and the other athletes are super motivating. I feel stronger just walking through the door! I don't think you will find a better place!
CFR changed our lives in so many ways! As a new couple to California, we were looking to switch up our normal work out routine and meet like minded people. We were new to CrossFit and slightly intimidated but since, have never looked back. CFR is so welcoming, you can scale anything to your abilities, and Jason and the other coaches as CFR are incredible, patient, and make sure you are safe. We have met some of our very best friends at this gym. Everyone is so encouraging, and cheers you on when hitting new PR's - it truly is a family.
I couldn't recommend it more, we have gained so much more than we ever imagined. Give it a try and I promise you will fall in love like we did!!
Crossfit Restore is everything you want out of a gym with the unique touch of a wonderful Crossfit community. Coming into the gym as a beginner I felt unintimidated by the workout. I can trust that Jason, the lead trainer, will have the best recommendations to keep me feeling challenged but safely moving through the workout for full success. The growth I have experienced within this gym both mentally and physically is unlike any other accomplishment I've had before. This box is the cream of the crop. Jason's coaching is top of the line.
