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 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.

Kelsey

COACH
CrossFit Level 1, USAW Weightlifting

When asked why she wanted to become a coach, Kelsey responded with a simple “I knew I wanted to coach when I saw that although life will knock you down 10 times, CrossFit will help you stand up 11.”

Kelsey has years of experience in and out of the gym helping people. When not coaching, Kelsey is a Clinical Research Coordinator at University of Cincinnati where she helps run studies that allow us to learn more about disease processes, improve treatments and help save lives.

Mike Whalen

COACH
CrossFit Level 1, Previously a licensed school counselor. Starting a double masters program in the fall at Mount Saint Joesph University for Organizational Leadership/MBA

Mike has been doing CrossFit for about 2 years and has always been active in sports for as long as he can remember: football, baseball, basketball, track, racquetball, golf, and now Crossfit and Powerlifting!

He is passionate that fitness can be anything we want it to be, from a simple walk down the street to muscle up training. There is always something we can work on to get better. People who accomplish something they didn’t believe they could do, that look of pure joy in the moment the goal is met is what inspires him most.

His favorite quote is “I guess it comes down to a simple choice, really. Get busy living or get busy dying.” Tim Robbins – Shawshank Redemption -Any interesting facts about yourself? I share a birthday with my wife and my dad, November 14th.
