SideYard started off as a single car garage gym in Middleton, Idaho in 2013. It was a way to help reach people who desired to be proactive about their health rather than reactive. Sharene, the owner, was an ICU nurse and saw day in and day out the repercussions of inactivity and poor nutrition either from lack of understanding or lack of opportunity to learn. Sharene found CrossFit in 2012 and fell in love with the mindset of nutrition, physical activity, and constant variance. She had previously tried the typical globo gym, personal training, online video fitness routes but would burn out on these repetitive and single focused activities . CrossFit challenged her in areas she felt she was strong or skilled in and constantly gave her new goals to strive for. She couldn’t help but want to share this opportunity with as many people as possible so she dove in head first to learn as much as she could as both a CrossFit athlete and as a coach. In 2019, Sharene decided to commit becoming a CrossFit affiliate and incorporate a full-time schedule as she expanded her space in the “sideyard” of her home. In February 2020 she was again able to move toward an even larger space to call home and bring on more coaches to both deepen the quality and quantity of what SideYard can offer. All of the coaches are committed to new learning opportunities, improving their skillsets and moving towards continuation of an amazing community of individuals who just want to be healthy, stay active, look and feel the way they want, and have fun doing it.
