Our Coaches

Shawn McQueen


Traditional stats will tell you I served in the Air Force for 4 years. I've been a Coach for 12 years and a gym owner of Railroad CrossFit for 10 years. That I'm pretty fit, love my dog, Myla Rose and in the spring to summer months it might even be hard to catch me with a shirt on. What the stats won't tell you though, is who I am. I'll do my best here to paint a picture below but one interaction with me and you'll feel my presence and understand the man behind the words.

I lead my life each day by these three things: integrity, intent and impact. Driven to be an agent of change. To create environments and experiences like no other. Wherever I go, I aim to make it better. I study communication and psychology and learn from the best to continually add tools to my skill set as a leader. With a beneath the surface communication style that develops meaningful relationships. I change peoples states and energy levels by presence, asking questions and genuine care. Once there, there are massive opportunities to dramatically improve other human beings’ lives. I live for this. I am committed. If you’re on my team, come to me for help, to grow, expand or learn, you can guarantee it is a personal mission of mine to increase the quality of your life. To be a guide to help you get you from where you are to where you want to be.

Abby Puca


Your first week at Railroad, the question you'll usually ask after Coach Shawn yells "Gail!!" across the room is, "I thought your name is Abby?"

Yes, it is. Gail is my alter ego.

Just kidding, just my nickname given to me many years ago : ) Outside of Coaching and fitness, dance is a huge passion of mine, I grew up watching old movies, a big influence being my mother and father who I thank every day for getting me involved in dance classes at age 2 …my heroes : )

I’ve been with Railroad for 12 years, 6 of them as a Coach. One day, before I began coaching, I looked around the gym and saw all of the Coaches working with someone, helping them get out of pain, adding vitality to another human’s life, making someone smile; right then I knew I wanted to do the same, I wanted to become a Professional Coach.

Being a member of Railroad changed my life, and each and every day my mission is to give that back to everyone who walks through the door.

Some will say I’m an empath. I strive to understand the experiences and feelings of others outside of my perspective.

I’ll sense and feel emotions as if they’re part of my own, meet people where they’re at and change their state to make their experience at Railroad the best part of their day.

When I hear someone say, “I cannot believe I just did that”, it is music to my ears.

To take someone from not knowing what to expect, to a place where they couldn’t ever imagine they’d ever be, and be their guide along the journey is something I live for each and every day.
