Our Coaches

We are fitness trainers. Our practice is more than just a job; it is our passion. Our clients are our top priority and their successes are our life's work—we are professionals. On the surface, our job is to shepherd our athletes (We view all of our clients as athletes regardless of their age or ability) toward physical prowess, but we recognize a purpose to our efforts and an impact on our athletes that transcends the physical.

Amanda’s Bio

I discovered CrossFit in 2012 when I was a sophomore in high school. At that time, I was looking for an exercise program that would best prepare me to play softball at the collegiate level. I was fortunate enough to attend a high school that had an incredible physical education program. The program ranged from every freshman performing a biathlon to participating in a school-wide Fitness Challenge where the fittest in the school were crowned. My physical education teacher owned a local CrossFit gym, so I decided to give CrossFit a try. After experiencing the high energy atmosphere and the comradery of the other athletes, I realized CrossFit was more than just a training methodology. The passion I developed for fitness lead me to study Exercise Science at Slippery Rock University and play Division II softball. The capstone of my Exercise Science degree was completing an internship at Reebok CrossFit One where I was able to work under world-class CrossFit coaches.

CrossFit has changed my life, and I am confident that it can change yours too. Health and fitness are multifocal and are meant to enhance all aspects of your life. True wellness stems beyond physical wellness including facets such as social and spiritual. Personally, CrossFit has set a tone for how I build relationships, my walk in faith, and how I approach my career. My experiences have allowed me to develop a passion for health and fitness which have positively influenced many areas of my life. It is my goal to use my passion and strengths to motivate and inspire those around me to live healthier lifestyles and be a positive change in our rapidly developing community.
