our story

Janice opened Bandit CrossFit in 2013, after spending two years leading an outdoor bootcamp program she called “Fergie’s Boot Camp.”

Her own fitness journey began in 2005 when she started CrossFit in her backyard in Texas after seeing some videos online. She is passionate about fitness and is still learning and improving her own fitness every day along with helping to lead others.

Janice has done everything from running 5Ks and ultra-marathons, to qualifying for the USAW Masters Nationals, CrossFit Regionals, to participating in extreme endurance events like the SISU Iron and GORUCK. She has competed in every CrossFit Open since 2011. She’s competed on American Ninja Warrior and Stone Cold Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Challenge. She’s also a World Champion Wild Hog Catcher with the belt buckle to prove it, and her latest hobby is endurance horse riding, where she has completed two 25-mile horse races on her Arabian, Saay No More.

Janice has worked with athletes of all ability, ages, genders, and goals: from cross country, track, weightlifting, CrossFit, basketball, and regular folks who just want to look and feel better.

Janice is married to her husband, Richard, for more than 20 years, and they have two daughters, who are both Division 1 collegiate athletes.

“I love sharing my sense of adventure and my love of fitness with my Bandit members,” she says. “They make me smile every day. I feel like the luckiest person in the world that I get to spend all of my waking hours and moments being around them and thinking about how to help them. I especially love cooking up the next fun adventure for us all to share.”
