Bret Bartholomew

  • CrossFit Level 1 Trainer / Owner

I grew up in Dunkerton, IA where I played all of the school sponsored sports. After that I attended Iowa State University where I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Health and Human Performance. After graduation, I attended Palmer College of Chiropractic and have been a practicing Doctor of Chiropractic in Ames since 2009. Lindsey and I own Platinum Chiropractic, formerly Bartholomew Chiropractic here in Ames. We have 2 children, Bethany and Joe, who love being around the gym and replicating some of our CrossFit workouts off to the side!

I started my CrossFit journey the end of 2014. Being a small town athlete, exercise has always been a part of my life, but when I finally found CrossFit, I knew I was home. I really enjoy the workouts being constantly varied as I don’t like the same routine week in and week out. I just enjoy celebrating the small and HUGE milestones with people, whether it’s in the Box or at our Chiropractic office.
