 Jill Quilla Olinger

Jill Quilla Frantz has been a competitive athlete her entire life and began CrossFitting four years ago. She has an Exercise Sports Science degree from UNCG where she was a scholarship athlete playing Division I softball. She was the team captain and was awarded All-Conference her Junior and Senior year.

She was introduced to CrossFit in 2010 and registered for her first competition in 2011. CrossFit has since become her sport of choice. Jill’s passion for CrossFit soon collided with her entrepreneurial spirit. She saw the opportunity to bring CrossFit to Denver, NC and on November 15th, 2012, Jill opened CrossFit Allegiance.

When not coaching classes, Jill can be found with her daughters, Julia and Lily, on the softball field, biking in Jetton Park, or on a paddleboard on Lake Norman.

Kyle Baker

Graduated from Western Carolina University in 2010, majoring in Business. While at Western Carolina I participated as a walk on athlete for the football and baseball team. I found CrossFit in 2012 an have been addicted ever since. Coming from an athletic background I am always looking for a way to compete, after college I started lifting weights and competing in the sport of Triathlons but as we know lifting heavy weights and competing as an endurance athlete don’t mix. I was introduced to CrossFit while away on a business meeting and my first workout was “Linda”, immediately after that workout I never looked back and have been doing CrossFit ever since. As a coach I enjoy seeing people push their limits and getting in the best shape of their

  Shawn DeLuca

I am Shawn DeLuca and I am a competitive junkie.

After graduating high school in 1993, I Joined the U.S. army reserves to see if boot camp was as difficult as people said (it was).

After my 6 years I picked up and moved to North Carolina where I continued pursuing boxing, training and fighting for 10 years and started S. DeLuca Homes Inc. I settled down, started a family and soon realizing I was
getting too old to get punched in the face. It was time to find another way to get my adrenaline fix.

I ran into owner Jill Frantz and she said, “Why don’t you come try a workout at the box I’m opening, CrossFit Allegiance.” I said, “I don’t know what that is but I’ll be there.” I’ve been going everyday since.

CrossFit is a great fit for me and I’ve met some of the best people at CrossFit Allegiance. It is much more than just working out and going home. If you want to get in the best shape of your life, in a great atmosphere, with great coaches, I recommend coming to CrossFit Allegiance and giving CrossFit a try.

Russ Murr

Russ found the sport of CrossFit two years ago as a means to get fit. What he found was something that fueled his love of intensity and competition. After learning for a year he decided he wanted to help others find their way in the sometimes complicated “functional movements” that make up CrossFit. He completed his level 1 in December of 2013. A born leader, he was a Marine for 8 years, rising very quickly through the ranks. He first started Olympic Lifting in College playing football. Russ is now an insurance agent by day and a Race Car Fueler on the weekends! His change in day job has not damped a capacity for pain the rest of us envy and a tireless spirit he found and fostered while in the Marines.
