Being a volunteer and career firefighter my entire life, I believe that the highest calling any of us could ever have is the opportunity to save another person's life. Whether that is during an emergency through lifesaving skills, or through the preventative measures of education in health and fitness.

Already an athlete? Perfect. We can improve the athletic prowess you already have. Not an athete? Perfect. You dedicate to improving, and this will become your missing link, whether you knew it was missing or not. Want to be a CrossFit Competitor? We have a prescription for that as well, putting you on the leaderboard as a top-tier athlete.

Invest in yourself. It may not be easy, but it will be worth it.

With over 20 years as a Fitness Instructor, my teaching experience is extensive in all forms but my fitness rose to new heights when I was introduced to CrossFit. I have experienced all the trials and fears and successes of our members so I can relate very well to those emotions. Combining my past experiences with continuing education, I am always looking for ways to make you successful.

Bobby Thomas - Coach

CrossFit (CF) Level 1 Trainer, CF Gymnastics Trainer

After serving in the Marine Corps and no longer playing competitive sports, I needed something to fulfill my drive and competitive spirit.  Although I was able to stay in fair shape from being in the construction industry after my service in the Marine Corps, I found myself in an office environment which adversely affected my health and fitness habits.  A visit to the doctor opened my eyes. My blood pressure was elevated, my muscle tone was depleted, and I didn’t like what I saw in the mirror. I drove by TrainTown CrossFit and walked in the doors. Three years later I have not looked back. 

Having coached youth baseball for 8 years, becoming a CrossFit coach was an easy transition. Teaching people new skills and watching their excitement is extremely rewarding. I love helping people of all ages improve their health, fitness and overall well-being. The CrossFit experience, especially at TrainTown CrossFit, has been the best decision I have made for both my mental and physical health. Come in and let us help you live your healthiest life.

Nick Ficarra - Coach

CrossFit Level (CF) 1 Trainer, CF Gymnastics Trainer

After 20 years of laziness and poor dietary choices, doctor appointments became more frequent, blood pressure was rising, clothes were getting tighter and my overall health was declining. With a lot of prodding, I finally agreed to join TrainTown CrossFit. Although I complained every day, I showed up and put in the work. I never would have thought I would still be doing CrossFit, improving my diet and sincerely wanting to help others do CrossFit. The TrainTown CrossFit community has literally saved my life and I can’t think of a better way to show my appreciation than to give back to them. If I can do it and stick with it and see positive results in my health, then anyone can. Let me help you get your fitness back and take you far beyond what you think you can do. You are worth it.

Karen PhauP - coach

CrossFit (CF) Level 1 Trainer

With over 20 years of experience working as a registered nurse specializing in eating disorders and nutrition education, I have always been passionate about helping and educating others. Now I get to combine those interests with my newly discovered passion for fitness. I am honored to be a part of the TrainTown Crossfit team. I especially enjoy working with our new members and seeing their confidence soar. I look forward to helping others discover real fitness while at the same time reclaiming some of their lost abilities.

Shannon Melton-weightlifting/olympic Lifting Coach

USA Weightlifting (USAW) Level 1 Sports Performance Coach

After working out at a globo gym for years, I discovered I needed something more. I found TrainTown CrossFit and quickly learned how much I loved to lift heavy weights. I am an avid CrossFitter but I have a passion for Barbells. Having been a member at TrainTown for several years and faithfully belonging to their Barbell Club, I gained the confidence and support to pursue the USAW certification. My enthusiasm for barbell work is so great that I want to share it with everyone! I don't want anyone to be intimidated by weight. The weight on the bar is the chase and the chase is the fun part. Let me show you how strong you can be by teaching you proper technique in a safe environment. You will be amazed with your results.

I am fortunate to be surrounded by wonderful people doing extraordinary fitness. My husband and my daughter make our gym adventures a family affair. I am proud of them and incredibly happy that we are now a healthy, strong family alongside the other healthy, strong families at TrainTown CrossFit. Join us for some real fitness and let me show you how fun a barbell can be!
