More About Rich
I started CrossFit in the beginning of 2012 after my doctor told me that I had underdeveloped muscles in my back and If I didn’t strengthen them I’d continue to have back problems. I reluctantly walked into a CrossFit gym and almost 7 years later I’m glad I did. It has only changed my life for the better. It has become a lifestyle that I would never change. It has allowed me to grow as a human being and to be a coach to so many people over the years. I’ve been lucky enough to be a part of hundreds of transformations throughout my coaching career and I’m excited to continue to be a part of so many more here at CrossFit Muse.

More About Elizabeth
As a competitive wrestler and Olympic Weightlifter with a background in track and field and a BS in Sports Science, I thought that there was no fitness routine I couldn’t easily master. And then I tried CrossFit and hated it – it exposed so many weaknesses. However, it was the challenge to improve that motivated me and the CrossFit community that got me addicted. Since then, I have competed on an Elite Team at the Minnesota Granite Games 2017, and an Elite Team at Miami Wodapoloza 2018. Coaching since 2015, I love inspiring others to strive to exceed and welcoming them into the CrossFit family.

More About Mara
Never an athlete, I worked out over the years, trying everything from running to weightlifting to random cardio-based classes.  But until trying CrossFit about 2 years ago, I never found anything that improved my overall fitness level, not to mention continuously interested and challenged me. Yet what really hooked me on CrossFit is the community: I’ve been to boxes across the country and always welcomed and encouraged as though I were a long-term member. CrossFit has given me a way to get stronger and fitter while providing me with a support system, and I can’t wait to share that with everyone at CrossFit Muse.
