Spencer Smith

Co-Owner & Head Coach


He who has health, has hope; and he who has hope, has everything.”
Thomas Carlyle

Spencer loves being a co-owner and head coach here at CrossFit Donelson. He is passionate about CrossFit because of the positive impact it has had on his life, so he founded this gym in 2019 to share it with as many people as possible. Since then, it has been his privilege to help change lives.

I don’t just train people to work out, I train them to create healthy habits. Whether it’s exercise, nutrition, sleep, or mental discipline, these habits have the potential to improve every area of your life. Although this is a simple process, it’s not easy, and my job is to guide you along the way.

Spencer has been coaching for over 8 years, and he believes that both functional movement and connection with others are equally important to our health. He is driven by the purpose of engaging with members and supporting them to achieve their goals, both inside and outside the gym.

CrossFit isn’t just about becoming fitter or looking better, it’s also about your outlook on life. If you approach the difficult things in life with the resolve to never give up, you cannot fail. The greatest adaptation to CrossFit takes place between the ears.

Spencer spends most of his spare time with his beautiful wife, Audrey, and their four exuberant children. He also enjoys attending church, playing drums, dancing, and anything that involves sharing a meal with friends.
