Owner and Coach
Ali Ott has done great things to help everyone in the area become fit and learn their true potential. Having founded CrossFit Zionsville in 2012, Ali has attended CrossFit for 13 years and has been a coach for 8 of them! Ali has lifted weights for as long as he can remember and he even made home-made weights and a wooden bench when he was younger so he could have a make-shift bench press! He has always been involved in athletics because he played soccer as a kid and ran track in high school, but he found his true passion for CrossFit. Ali was introduced to CrossFit in 2005 and realized that it was a perfect outlet for him. Ali moved to Indianapolis for college and got his degree in Biology with a minor in Chemistry, but he realized after he graduated that he wasn’t passionate about those things. When he was stressed about school and his workload, he would work out to ease this tension, and shortly after this epiphany, he started CrossFit Zionsville! Ali’s certifications include CrossFit Level 1 and 2, Kids, and Gymnastics. Over the years he has developed favorites and least favorite WODs, and he shared that his least favorite WOD was Jackie, consisting of rowing, thrusters, and pull-ups, while his least favorite is Murph, made up of running, pull-ups, push-ups, and air squats. Ali is very experienced with CrossFit and a great coach that helps people reach their goals!

Health and fitness have been an important part of my life ever since I can remember. I participated in competitive jump roping and ran my fair share of 5k’s and mini-marathons. I was a multi-sport athlete from my youth through high school and pursued collegiate soccer at IUPUI where I studied Biomechanics and Kinesiology. I have 9 years of personal and group training experience, 4 of those working with Division-I athletes. I am a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS). I hold a USA-Weightlifting Coaching Certification and am a certified Functional Movement Specialist (FMS).
An active lifestyle has always been a goal of mine that I hope to pass on to others. It becomes a healthy habit, an outlet for stress, a place to build self-esteem, and a foundation for a clear mind. My favorite part about coaching is sharing the confidence and mindset that comes from setting a goal and reaching it. Consistency is key to becoming the best version of ourselves!
Robb started CrossFit in 2008 while working for the Lee County Sheriff’s Department in Ft Myers, Florida. Shortly after relocating his family back to Indiana in 2009, he attended his CrossFit Level 1 and began coaching fellow Officers. After 15 years, Robb transitioned out of Law Enforcement and into the corporate world but his passion for seeing others reach their fitness goals has continued. Robb enjoys being a part of an environment that pushes people to thrive and exceed their own expectations.
I have now been participating in CrossFit for 2 years, and have been a member of CFZ since August 2016. As a coach I am excited for the opportunity to help members achieve their goals and improve their fitness.
