CrossFit Level 1 Instructor :

Ed started 2 years ago came in weighing 250+ lbs, out of shape. Being a former athlete he didn’t like how he felt.  He came into Corps Fitness, did his first workout and during the lunges he couldn’t keep up but the person next to him kept him moving.

It was at that moment I knew this was a different gym. Family mindset, leave no one behind.  I was hooked, as I progressed I saw changes in my mind and body.  My goal is to help others feel better about themselves and have them know all is achievable.

Working from home meant we could vary snack and coffee breaks, change our desks or view, goof off, drink on the job, even spend the day in pajamas

I went into the Marine Corps right out of high school as an overweight football player and returned lean, fit and able to take on any challenge. The philosophy that was ingrained in me changed my outlook on fitness and being active. I started Corps Fitness with the philosophy of exposing people to the motivation and self realization I experienced in boot camp. I was pushed beyond what I thought was my limit and that redefined what I knew I could accomplish. In 1998 I was diagnosed with a degenerative nerve condition and as a result of my Marine Corps experience I only became more determined to make the best of my situation. My goal with Corps Fitness and the IM ABLE Foundation is to inspire others to look inside themselves to push forward despite their challenges. No Excuses…Just MOVE!
Age: 34 Certification: NETA – Group Fitness Instructor; ASFA Kettlebell Instruction Hobbies: All outdoor recreation including hiking, camping, snowboarding, canoeing. Cooking and EATING!!! Why I workout at CF: The Philosophies of accountability, teamwork, motivation, and adaptability strike the same cord as my ideas for living my life. Being a lifelong athlete is one of my goals and being surrounded by like minded people will not only help me achieve that goal but will also make me a better person in the end.
    ​I will never forget the first time coming to a CF class. I remember thinking "this isn't working out" and this isn't for me. But by then it was too late. A fire had been lit on the inside, my natural instinct to continue the fight with an obvious weakness had kicked in, so I came back. I was more of a drop in athlete for many years until last year at the All out in Berks challenge.​ Even after being gone and training at other CrossFit gyms I knew that with all the warm welcomes and a few hugs that Corps Fitness was my home and I needed to come back. So its been almost one year and I love it. We are a family. We train together, eat together, share in our achievements, and receive help with our weaknesses. CF is my home and will be for as long as possible. If I can share one thing with anyone in regards to training it would be: Never give up, even after you fall or fail, keep showing up and continue to put in work because one day its going to pay off.
