Husband of Michelle and father of 3, Malcolm's fitness career began personal training at Bally Total Fitness in 1998, then 911 hit and Malcolm joined the Army feeling called to duty. Former SSG Cook proudly served 10 years of military active and reserve duty and gained an understanding of the importance of physical fitness readiness. While in the military in pursuit of a higher level of fitness, in 2011 his CrossFit journey began. Competing in two local competitions in 2013, Malcolm placed 1st and 2nd in the Mens Masters divisions and believes High Intensity Functional Training has allowed him to win at age 40.

His goal for the The Games in 2015 is not the main reason for starting LivingStone CrossFit, its the call to help people understand there body's potential, but more importantly assist his community in living richer, fuller, healthier lives.

Come to him, a LIVING STONE, though rejected by mortals yet chosen and precious in God’s sight, and like LIVING STONES, let yourselves be built into a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood... 1Peter 2:4

Coach Michael

NASM-Certified Personal Trainer
CrossFit Level 1 Trainer


Michael's love of fitness was a huge factor in his life since childhood, having participated in many sports growing up, and even writing group fitness programs through college as a member as the Texas A&M Corps of Cadets. After graduating college and entering the Marine Corps, he had planned to become a history teacher, but in the summer of 2015, a month from entering the civilian workforce, he realized that, deep down, teaching was not something he truly wanted. After a long internal crisis over the matter, prayer, and talking to his wife, he knew that fitness was what he wanted to do for the rest of his life, giving him the chance to make an impact in people's lives and change their health for the better. He joined LivingStone CrossFit in October 2015, and has dedicated himself to improving the health and well-being of people in the San Antonio area ever since through CrossFit, bootcamps, and personal and semi-private training.

Coach Roy

Hello my name is Roy Scavone.  My journey into fitness started as a young kid taking part in martial arts from an early age into my early teens.  Then, like many boys in Texas I played football and did some wrestling through high school.  After that, life took me in another direction which involved being in a signed touring band, getting a degree in music and then landing me in a friend’s (who happened to be L1 Crossfit certified) garage gym.  This is where I developed a true passion and interest in Crossfit and Olympic Weightlifting.  During this time I was also beginning my journey down a path towards physical therapy and making the undeniable connections between physical movement and holistic health.  I am currently a senior at UTSA finishing a degree in Athletic Medicine and will be a certified USA Weightlifting Sports Performance Coach in February.  I am a weightlifter at heart but  I love everything about Crossfit (except the burpees!), especially the diversity and all inclusiveness of it.  I have a strong belief that a body that is in motion will stay in motion and Olympic weightlifting and Crossfit can help anyone achieve that.  I also believe in the power of community and that we are all in this together.  As a coach at LivingStone I am dedicated to the safety, education and the lifting up of our athletes in any way I can.  LivingStone is about so much more than just adding weight to the bar, it’s about building a community together and sharing a bit of our lives with the people that we sweat with because that is the real beauty of Crossfit.
