Nate and Snow met in 2011 while both were members at CrossFit Providence in Rhode Island. At the time, Snow was pursuing her Master of Arts in Teaching while Nate worked as a full-time Pharmacist, holding a Doctorate of Pharmacy.
In 2016, the couple moved to Oregon and began coaching at a CrossFit gym in Ashland. They eventually purchased the gym at the end of 2020. Given their primary clientele, middle-aged everyday individuals looking to stay in shape, Nate and Snow adapted the Level Method programming for their gym's community, naming it Iron Haven.
