I discovered CrossFit over 6 years ago when my sister-in-law, Julie (who has several levels of CrossFit certifications), dragged my wife and I into a box in Northern Michigan. We immediately fell in love with this incredible fitness program. We spent several summers working out in our hometown of Ludington, Michigan, only to return to the Keys with no CrossFit. We returned from Michigan one summer 4 years ago to find CrossFit Key Largo had opened and met Jamie and Erin Hamilton and joined the gym. My entire family, Mary Jo, my wife, my daughters Erin and Katie, who is also a CF- Level 1 trainer and my soon on to be son-in-law Brandon, who is also a coach at CF Key Largo, workout religiously. I am Principal of Coral Shores High School and a resident of Key Largo for over 37 years. I decided to become a trainer after my first year working out at CF Key Largo to enhance my skills and it has been an incredible experience. I am a former college athlete and I have experienced a variety of fitness and strength programs over the years and none compare to the total fitness experience CrossFit provides. I will be 59 in October of 2017 and in the best shape of my life thanks to this amazing fitness program and my CrossFit family at CrossFit Key Largo.
