CF-L1, CrossFit Gymnastics
Phil started his CrossFit journey after meeting us at a local triathlon. Phil had recently gotten back in shape and was looking for a training program to compliment his offseason regimen. Since that time, Phil has completed a 1/2 Ironman, a marathon, and he has competed in multiple local CrossFit competitions. This made Phil a natural choice to head up our Firebreather Program. It quickly became successful and expanded to a second night each week. Phil handles all the programming for the program and can usually be seen at local competitions giving our athletes last minute advice.
Trey spent his whole life competing in team sports and missed that competitive aspect of his life. Add in his complete boredom of the traditional gym setting, and he was looking for a change. He found that change in 2013 when he walked into the nearby box and gave “Cindy” a try. Twenty minutes later his lungs burned, his legs wobbled, his head was pounding, and he was hooked. Since then he has competed in numerous local and interbox competitions, always looking for the newest skill to tackle. Already incorporating aspects of Crossfit into his coaching for football and track during his day job. In 2016 he earned his L1 certification and began coaching classes at our box. He tries to incorporate skills he’s picked up from his years of athletics and his science background to help motivate others and allow them to enjoy Crossfit as much as he does.
Jo’s story begins with being overweight years ago and deciding to make a change. When a chance conversation with friends lead to Fortitude Fitness, she decided to give it a shot and we have never looked back. Known for her smile, warmth, and positivism, Jo has a unique perspective on what is possible and what isn’t. She does not give up on her athletes and refuses to let them give up on themselves. If you need somebody to motivate you, Jo is your girl.
Since starting CrossFit in 2011, Deb has become an accomplished athlete, ranked 199th in the world in the Masters Women 60+ division. When she isn’t kicking butt as an athlete, she is helping other athletes find their own success. She typically teaches our Open Gym time on Sundays from 9-11am, but her impact far outreaches just those classes. Deb is responsible for many great ideas and innovations around the gym and also writes a funny blog about her experiences.
USA Weightlifting Sports Performance Coach
Mike “Deg” is a 25 year veteran weightlifting coach and leads the State Champion Girls Weightlifting program at River Ridge High School. Deg’s knowledge of the two Olympic lifts (the snatch and Clean and Jerk) far surpass anything CrossFit offers and we love that. CrossFit is about being broad, general, and inclusive whereas to become great at lifting requires a specialist. We are very pleased to have Mike train our athletes three times a week for the barbell club.
Fortitude Fitness has been an amazing addition to our lives. I am very thankful that it was recommended by a friend. The staff is very supportive and encouraging. I never thought I could do something like this. So glad that I found this great place to work out!Jenny Amsberry
I love this gym. I am new to the area and to cross fit. They made me feel welcome and part of the “family” right away. The New You Challenge left me feeling proud and ready to tackle cross fit. Everyone here is very supportive of whatever your skill level and goal is. I drive 25-30 min to come here and pass another gym because of the way Joe and Renee run their gym. All of the trainers are very friendly and helpful. I highly recommend Fortitude Fitness to anyone looking for a fun, supportive environment.
They also have a great kids area, my daughter loves coming going here almost as much as I do!Angela Whaley
Best box in the Trinity/NPR!!!! You will not be disappointed Joe/Renee are first class owners with big hearts and run a first rate box! Thanks for allowing me to drop in!!!! I will be back!!!!Anthony Perkins
Awesome Box! I dropped in for a couple classes while in the area for work and had a great experience. Owners, Joe and Renee, were very professional and very welcoming. I enjoyed my brief time there. The box has everything you’d need and is a good size place. It was clean and classes seem well organized time wise. I had a great experience and if I lived in the area, could say I’d probably be a member.Russell Early
