Basile Beaty

I ran cross country, indoor track, and outdoor track at Amherst College in Amherst, MA, where I graduated with a dual degree in 2008. In 2010, I received my first master’s degree in curriculum and education from the University of Mississippi, Oxford. I taught 10th-grade English for 3 years at a small high school in Mississippi, where I also coached track and field and managed to train several state champions in the short time I was there. I took a position at university in Moscow, Russia, in 2011, and began learning Olympic lifting. In 2012 I began working on a PhD in comparative literature at the University of Southern California, during that time I travelled to Russian again to work on Olympic lifting. While in SoCal, I began to study CrossFit. I began in October of 2011 and qualified for the OC Throwdown a few months later. I trained at CrossFit Mean Streets and qualified individually for SoCal Regionals 2012, 2013, and 2014. In November 2014, I founded Verdant CrossFit in Boise. We qualified for 2015 West Regionals and went to the CrossFit Games in 2015. In 2016 and 2017, we qualified for West Regionals as well. In February 2017, I began staffing CrossFit Refinery and operating it under my training system.
