Head Coach

Chet first found a second home in the gym at an early age to improve his performance in sports such as hockey and baseball. When his competitive sports days were over, he continued at the gym focusing more on bodybuilding. He received a Fitness and Health Diploma from Durham College and began a career as a Personal Trainer. After a few years of working at common fitness facilities, he was approached by a box owner to become a CrossFit Trainer. Having never done a WOD in his life, Chet accepted the position and went to complete his Level 1 Certification. Assuming he was already in great shape, having trained his whole life, how hard could it be right? The first workout performed was FRAN and it wasn’t long before Chet found himself the last one with the rest of the class cheering him on to make it under the 10 minute cap, which he did not. As strange as it might sound, it was at this moment, that he fell in love with CrossFit. The competitiveness, the atmosphere and the challenge to improve every day has change his outlook on fitness. Now, Chet has been training in CrossFit for 3 years and is a Certified Level 1 Trainer, with, a 2:37 Fran time.
