Vaughn Brotton isn’t just a co-owner and head trainer at Axiom CrossFit, he’s the friendliest and fun-lovingest battle tank in disguise you’ll ever meet. His fitness foundation built around the typical muscle-hypertrophy paradigm and honed in the usual “global” gym environment, he truly hit his stride as a trainer after being introduced to CrossFit by his own sister Melissa, Owner of CrossFit Newport Beach. All it took was a couple sublimely devastating CrossFit workouts, and Vaughn was hooked! A holder of certifications spanning the exercise spectrum—CrossFit Level 1 Trainer, CrossFit Gymnastics Trainer, CrossFit Endurance Trainer, CrossFit Strongman Trainer, NASM Certified Personal Trainer, USA Weightlifting—he is a walking (running!) encyclopedia of fitness. Vaughn has also served his country with distinction in the U.S. Marine Corp. A scout certified in combat first aid.
