Vision: To provide health and fitness services as a foundational component of all people’s lives.
Susan played Division 1 field hockey for The Ohio State University. While she was there she trained under the watchful eye of a strength and conditioning coach where she developed a love of lifting. The birth of her first child in 2009 compelled her to find a fitness program that fit her new lifestyle when her and her husband discovered CrossFit. The love of CrossFit grew from an interest to a profession and they have never looked back since.
Michael Metzger has been coaching CrossFit for 9 years. he has been involved with sports and athletics all of his life. From a young age he was bike racing and competing in triathlons as well as high school wrestling and track and field events.
After college CrossFit became a large draw due to it’s short intense training regimen which fit nicely into his home/work life schedule. “In doing Crossfit I found that the workouts had big crossover into regular life, something that I didn’t expect. Becoming stronger at CrossFit helped me engage and perform better at other difficult and uncomfortable tasks.” This realization helped Michael make the switch from High School teacher to CrossFit gym owner.
The power of CrossFit lied in struggling through the workouts, the struggle made you stronger physically and more importantly, mentally and psychologically. Helping others achieve this strength is the true passion in coaching CrossFit, and running our gym.
