Beau Armentor is co-owner and head trainer at Ole Glory CrossFit. Throughout his life he was a competitive athlete, playing baseball, football and hockey. Fitness was always a top priority in his life, but more so when he joined the Army. He always adhered to a typical gym routine while supplementing running for his cardio.
Soon after high school Beau joined the Louisiana National Guard and headed to Basic Training. After basic, he attended the University of Louisiana at Lafayette and joined the Reserve Officer Training Corps. After graduating with his Bachelors of Science in Psychology and pinned with the rank of 2nd Lieutenant, he then went on to obtain his Masters Degree in Applied Psychology in December 2009. Shortly after receiving his graduate degree, Beau deployed with the Louisiana National Guard to Iraq. It was during this deployment that he discovered CrossFit. His first CrossFit style workout was the 300 workout which totally kicked his butt. The workout humbled him and it was then that he realized that 100 sets of bench press and jogging 2 miles did not mean you were in shape. He accepted the challenge to take his fitness to the next level with CrossFit.
The CrossFit addiction began in Iraq and with his innate ability to work with people he quickly found his passion. What better way to help people than by educating them on proper movement and nutrition. Soon after returning from his deployment, Beau obtained his Level 1 CrossFit Trainer Certification. Beau and his wife, Natalie, opened Ole Glory CrossFit in May of 2011. He has since obtained his CrossFit Kids, CrossFit Powerlifting, CrossFit Weightlifting, and USA Weightlifting Level 1 Sport Performance certifications. In April 2014, Beau, along with Daina, attended the “Can You Hack It?” Seminar at UTE CrossFit in Salt Lake City, Utah. During this seminar he trained with CrossFit Games competitor, Tommy Hackenbruck.
Beau spends most of his time training classes throughout the day, conducting 1 on 1 personal training and finding time to squeeze in his own training. He continues to serve in the Louisiana National Guard as he has for the past fifteen years. He is currently a Captain and serves as the Company Commander for Charlie Company 199th Brigade Support Battalion in the 256th Infantry Brigade Combat Team.
