CrossFit Cibolo

Alyson Braden
CrossFit Level 2 Trainer
Certified Nutrition Coach

Aly grew up in Schertz and now currently resides in Cibolo. She is married with 3 children. Her oldest is 16 and the youngest are 3 year old twins. Aly was training for a marathon when she was introduced to functional fitness 6 years ago and was instantly in love. There was no going back to running for her!

Aly enjoys being able to help others reach their health and fitness goals. One of the many things she loves is being able to see women gain empowerment through fitness. There is beauty in strength. She also loves seeing athletes hit new PRs inside and outside the gym. "There is nothing more rewarding than seeing someone's self-worth, confidence, and self-esteem grow," she says.

Before becoming a trainer she was a nurse in a family practice office and then a stay at home mom.

Aly is passionate about Jesus, her family, friends, nutrition, and fitness! One of her favorite verses is, "So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God." 1 Corinthians 10:31 ESV.

Daniel Braden Jr

Daniel is a Christian, husband, and father that grew up and resides in Cibolo. Daniel is Aly's husband! When he's not on the road working as a pipeline welder to support his family, he is in the gym (or working on a project)! 

Daniel has always enjoyed working out and enjoys being able to assist others in their daily workouts. Daniel says, "form is more important than how much weight you have on the bar. Once you get the form right, then we can worry about progressing with weights!"

Daniel graduated from Samuel Clemens High School in 2001 and from Texas Lutheran University in 2005 with a BA in Kinesiology. 

Like Aly, Daniel is passionate about Jesus, his family, friends, nutrition, and fitness! One of his favorite verses is, "For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love, and self-discipline." -2 Timothy 1:7
