Our Coaches

Chelsye Quinn

I grew up in Plymouth, in sports fueled family with two competitive older brothers pushed me from a young age to always be the best. This drive fueled me to beg my parents to drive me to the gym  and compete on the soccer field at the varsity level.  After college, when I received my associates degree in business and a licensed dental assistant, I began to look for that same drive that fueled me when I was younger and took a chance on CrossFit.  What I expected when I joined CrossFit was to get in better physical shape.  Those first few months were some of the most intense hardest workouts of my entire life. However, within four months I came in first place in my very first competition.  I was in peak physical shape, and what I failed to realize was how much it changed my mental shape. When I joined I did not realize the community this sport builds and continues to build.  I have made lifelong friendships inside these doors and those people don’t just push me to be a better athlete, they push me to be a better person.  As a coach, I will make sure that anyone who walks through that door grows not only physically, but mentally.   This gym builds bodies, molds minds, and strengthens spirits.
