NCS has such a great community! I am in love with the coach-ability of so many athletes.
Having a personal background with weight loss, hormone issues, research into nutrition, and learning everything I can about lifting, programming and conditioning. I have a passion for working with a person’s strengths instead of working against weakness. I love being able to sit down one on one and figuring out how I can help you accomplish this!”
My favorite part coaching is being part of the process that can turn a hard day into an accomplished one or even a less than stellar mindset into something more positive. When an athlete finishes a workout and you can tell they are proud…I get to be a part of that!

Once Jeremy graduated in 2012 with his degree in Exercise Science and Human Performance, he began his career as a personal trainer. He was introduced to Crossfit by a friend in 2013, quickly swallowing the “kool-aid” and hasn’t looked back ever since.

As a kid, Mike was never someone people would call athletic; sports were not exactly his “thing.” He did do fairly well at high school wrestling (at 6’2” and weighing in at 112lbs). Being a scrawny kid he never really spent any time or energy considering his nutrition or physical fitness.
At 30 years old, he was larger in the middle than he liked, and very much not in shape. Then, he was diagnosed with a medical condition that causes occasional irregular heart rate. He knew that it was time to do something. In 2013 Mike discovered CrossFit and it has changed his life. He is now fitter, stronger, and healthier than he’s ever been.

CrossFit??? (Insert record scratch here). Wait, what? I get to learn something new? It’s 2020, so no one should be surprised when something new pops up. The surprise for me is that I really like it, and am kind of addicted to being dang sore and seeing what bruises pop up the next day.
My background is loving anything outdoors, anything athletic, working with people. When I was asked to come on staff at NCS, I couldn’t pass up meeting new people and skills and figuring out what all the buzz is about. I currently spend my athletic time kickboxing and learning all things CrossFit. I recover by hiking, petting my dogs and getting involved in shenanigans. I’m an Irish girl at heart!
