meet our team

All of our CrossFit trainers are CrossFit Level 2 Certificate holders (or soon to be!) and both owners are Certified CrossFit Trainers (CF-L3) and Seminar Staff Trainers for CrossFit Home Office. Our trainers embody the CrossFit ethos and know what it takes to dedicate a life to fitness. They realize that not everyone takes the same journey, as they themselves come from different backgrounds, and are ready to lead you on your own path towards health.

CrossFit Kids Coach

Certified CrossFit Level 1 Trainer
Certified CrossFit Kids Trainer

I’ve been doing CrossFit for close to four years now and found a love for it right at the start of high school after I ended my competitive gymnastics career. Like many CrossFit newcomers, I immediately fell in love with the energy of the community and the “fun” edge CrossFit brought to fitness and exercise. CrossFit Kids joins together my passion for working with children and my love of CrossFit. As a new coach, I am eager to continue learning more about the CrossFit methodology and hope to continue coaching throughout my young adulthood.

Certified CrossFit Level 1 Trainer
Master’s Certificate in Personal Training

Tyler has been doing CrossFit since early 2016. Originally only doing it “for fun” to hangout with his high school friends, he soon realized there was much more to it. Within his first year of training he had competed several times, and knew he was exactly where he was supposed to be. It was only a matter of time before he took to teaching others, and had been coaching at an affiliate prior to moving to Ottawa for almost 4 years. Coaching has been the most fulfilling thing he’s ever taken on, and has no intentions of ever stopping.
