Hope Smith, Head Coach Hope has been in the fitness industry for over 8 years and was introduced to CrossFit 5 years ago. Hope is married with three children and they all lead a very active lifestyle–including baseball, dance and more. As a child, Hope’s mother was always ill, which has encouraged her to be consistent in healthy living. She coaches others with that same passion and hopes that each individual she trains makes consistent lifestyle changes to be better. Dr. Eric Richards, Co-Owner Eric is passionate about healthy living. He has been CrossFitting since 2006, co-owns three other CrossFit Gyms (Garage, Silos and Towne Lake), is the founder of The Garage Games and The Fire Breather Challenge. He is a Maximized Living Chiropractor and owns HealthSprout Chropractic and Wellness. Eric is also a devoted husband to Laura and very-involved father to daughters, Brooke and Ansley. Joe Drury, Coach Joe is a software engineer, husband, and father of three. He was an athlete in High School but by the time he turned 40 in February 2012 he had packed on 50 pounds and was living a sedentary lifestyle. Concerned about how his lifestyle was affecting his family, he took matters into his own hands and began CrossFit in May 2012. After 4 months of doing CrossFit his ekg and respiratory responses were that of a sprinter and none of the markers in his blood work indicated a need for medication. Now Joe enjoys CrossFit with his son and wife, making them a dedicated CrossFit family. Les White, Co-Owner Les began his CrossFit journey in 2012 after being diagnosed with diverticulitis. He has embraced a healthy lifestyle that has changed his body and his entire family’s lifestyle! Les is an entrepreneur at heart. He’s done everything from church work to roofing and is now excited to be a part of CrossFit BridgeMill. He’s become officially addicted to CrossFit and loves the community he’s found there. He can’t wait to get his wife, Amanda involved and is already leading WODs with his two children, Lydia and Asa. Francisco Molina, Coach Francisco loves to encourage athletes when he’s not pushing himself to achieve his next PR. Yes! He can do muscle ups and Yes! he will smile as he passes you in any running WOD that comes up. He has a passion for CrossFit and wants everyone to live life to their full potential....
Let Me Tell You About CrossFit… CrossFit in 100 Words… “Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat. Practice and train major lifts: Deadlift, clean, squat, presses, C&J, and snatch. Similarly, master the basics of gymnastics: pull-ups, dips, rope climb, push-ups, sit-ups, presses to handstand, pirouettes, flips, splits, and holds. Bike, run, swim, row, etc, hard and fast. Five or six days per week mix these elements in as many combinations and patterns as creativity will allow. Routine is the enemy. Keep workouts short and intense. Regularly learn and play new sports. ” ~Greg...
1. Is CrossFit for everyone? Or just former super-athletes? CrossFit is for everyone! It might seem intimidating to see someone running with a 100 pound sandbag on their shoulder or throwing a 50 pound ball up against a wall 400 times but CrossFit is all about meeting you where you are. We scale workouts for your fitness level–and then push you just a bit. No matter your fitness level, CrossFit is for you! 2. Isn’t CrossFit kind of expensive? Isn’t a nursing home kind of expensive? Seriously, we believe our bodies can and should be strong for your entire life. We believe the CrossFit methodology can get you strong and keep you there. Because of our attentive coaches, small classes and attention to good form and correct posture, we charge more than your average get-on-our-treadmill-and-watch-a-movie gym but less than a come-to-your-house personal trainer. Email us to schedule a free intro class and we can talk pricing and plans together. 3. I’m a girl. Am I going to get so bulky I could win the Miss Universe pageant? No. CrossFit is not about bulking up or getting big muscles. CrossFit is about getting strong. (Unless you want to win the Miss Universe pageant. We might be able to help.) 4. I’m nervous about being in a class with lots of really fit and strong people. Will someone hold my hand? Figuratively, yes. Our coaches are attentive and will work with you to help you succeed at every workout. You’ll also find the rest of the folks in your class want to see your nail the workout, too. In fact, your class just might start to feel like family. 5. What is a WOD? WOD stands for Workout Of the Day. Each day we have a new workout. We believe workouts should be constantly varied, high intensity and include functional movements to help you be at your best. Our latest WODs will be posted here. 6. What about my kids? Can I bring them? We don’t have a babysitters but we do have a nice little room with some toys along with a desk for your big kids to do homework. We’d love to have your kids see your commitment to health and watch you get fit! See our Safe Child Policy here. 7. Will you help me with my diet, too? We certainly believe the way you eat can hinder or enhance what you do in CrossFit. We do not ascribe to or prescribe a certain “CrossFit BridgeMill approved” diet, but we will recommend and give resources to help you understand how to nourish your body. 8. What are all those crazy acronyms and girl names I keep hearing about? What? Like AMRAP? RX? Nancy? Fran? Don’t worry. You don’t need to...
