Under this guidance, Adam also began coaching strength and conditioning to competitive athletes, which would eventually lead him into the world of CrossFit, in 2012!

Damion grew up a multi-sport athlete earning the opportunity to play both Division I football and baseball. In December 2014, Damion decided to try Crossfit after his usual gym workouts began to lack focus and intensity.
The competition and the community support of Crossfit is what kept Damion coming back. A little over a year into beginning Crossfit Damion began coaching classes and found that helping to push others to achieve their goals is equally as rewarding as any personal achievements or accomplishments. Don’t be surprised to see Damion throwing around a barbell and suffering through a WOD with you in the mornings.

William served 8 years in the military as a Marine. During his time he focused on fitness and was a black belt in Marine Corps Martial Arts. After eight years of service he chose to get out of the Marine Corps. Staying fit in his transition as a Veteran into the civilian world was a struggle. He missed the Marine Corps community. Over the span of a year he gained 35 pounds and that’s when he had enough. He was really down on himself because he was so heavy and missed the feeling of being part of something. In 2013 he tried out Crossfit and along with healthy dieting, he managed to lose 30 pounds over the span of two months. Since then, he hasn’t looked back. William’s favorite quote that he applies to his coaching is “Strength gets you started and heart makes you finish!”
