Owner/Trainer Jarrett Baston has been CrossFitting for nearly a decade and specializes in Olympic lifting and gymnastics. His passion for fitness, wellness, and self-improvement all boil down to the same thing: pushing beyond the limits of what was previously thought impossible.
When coaching his members, Jarrett is inspired by their willingness to learn and their sincerity in working hard to reach their goals. His favorite quote is “Brought into this world without my consent, and I’ll be taken out against my will.”
Owner/Trainer Mark McCain became a personal trainer while attending the University of Cincinnati after transferring from West Liberty University, where he was attending on a baseball scholarship. One day he “Got dragged to a Saturday CrossFit class, got my butt kicked, and the rest is history.”
When training his members, he loves to “Reach deep inside and pull out a person that they didn’t know existed.” It’s building members’ confidence and helping them reach their goals that he’s most passionate about in the gym. “I am humbled daily by the CrossFit community and the amazing people it attracts,” he says. “I feel super grateful for this opportunity to do what I love.”
Coach Derek Kidney got into coaching because “The more I did, the more I wanted to learn, the more I wanted to teach.” When this “huge nerd” is coaching, he love watching his members make positive changes, not just in the gym, but in multiple aspects of their lives. They have more confidence and more strength both mentally and physically.
His favorite quote is “Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing themselves.”
Coach Chris Lemmel is a lifelong, multi-sport athlete that always knew he’d have a career in health and fitness. He chose CrossFit for his coaching career because “I felt drawn to the interaction that CrossFit facilitates.”
Chris is fanatical about constantly improving his coaching skills and connecting with his members in a way that motivates them to achieve more than they ever believed they could. In the gym, he says the relationships he builds with members help him grow as a person as he helps members grow as athletes.
