Group Fitness Certified :

Amanda came to one of the intro classes at Corps Fitness in October of 2016. After months of trying to achieve fitness goals on my own, she returned on June 10, 2017 for her first official Corps Fitness Class. Owner, Chris Kaag, made a bet with her and gave her until the end of June to attend a class. By July 4 that year, she was hooked. She started with the Corps Fitness program but soon developed a love for CrossFit as well. “I tell everyone that asks me about CFCFB that I would recommend this to anyone, no matter age or current physical ability. I was inspired by a current member that is in her 70’s. CFCFB is not a gym, it is a community of like-minded people that genuinely look out for each other.” Currently Amanda attends the early morning classes, every morning. In August 2018, Amanda earned her Group Fitness Certificate and began teaching weekday classes in addition to the Open Gym on the weekends.

Gretchen got her start with Corps Fitness in 2006 and has been hooked ever since. She enjoys pushing herself to the next level and the quiet competitiveness of a group class. Some of Gretchen’s favorite exercises include pull-ups and kettlebells. Gretchen is a CrossFit Level 2 Trainer and is currently teaching a few classes a week.
    Kevin first joined Corps Fitness on a punch card in 2008. Following some injuries he took some time away from the gym before finding his way back home in 2016. He grew up in Freehold, NJ before moving to Philadelphia to earn a bachelor degree from Philadelphia University. He moved to Reading when he and his family purchased Classic Harley-Davidson in 1998. Corps Fitness has become the Kodz family gym of choice as Kevin, his wife, Amanda and their 12 year old daughter, Maria are all members.
      Joe came to an intro class in August of 2017 looking for something new to challenge him. After doing at home workout programs, running numerous trail races, 5K’s, 10K’s, and Half Marathons, culminating in the Vernon Spartan Beast, he knew after 2 weeks, that Corps Fitness would never be the same workout twice and would be the place that could take him to the next level of fitness. Being the manager of Corps Fitness means that I have to set that example and get in fantastic shape and stay there. I’m excited to be helping people crush their goals and then set new, higher, loftier goals – goals that they may not have ever thought they could possibly reach.
