As a Gainesville native, Adam grew up in town where he attended school at the University of Florida to pursue a Bachelor’s in History. While in school he fell in love with CrossFit and the methodology behind the madness. It’s now 6 years later and nothing has changed. Shortly after graduating from the Santa Fe EMS program in 2014, he began to build his dream of becoming a CrossFit Affiliate.

Established in 2015, CrossFit 352 has become, as he says, “the reason to wake up every morning with a smile on my face knowing that I get to help my friends and family by teaching them CrossFit.”

“Rise and rise again, until lambs become lions.”

On my first day of CrossFit, my fitness level could have been described as “naturally athletic enough to fake it through most sports.” I was approaching my 30th birthday and finally decided this was not good enough. Mostly I wanted to feel better about turning 30, look better in a bikini, have abs, -insert cliche thing people say before they learn about how fitness actually works-. I had never lifted a barbell. I couldn’t do a pull-up. My squat looked like a swim start.

I quickly learned that these were things I needed to fix but certainly never thought they would become some of the things I’d look forward to doing on a daily basis. I started CrossFit for superficial reasons, but I stayed because I fell in love with getting stronger. I met my best friend at CrossFit, who I proudly own this gym with now. I made great friends I never would have met if not for our wild, addictive, painful, wonderful common interest. I am stronger, have better mobility, am happier and healthier at 34 years old than I was at 20. Becoming a CrossFit athlete has made my life better in more ways than I could have imagined. I now have the opportunity, along with Adam and Pablo, to allow this to happen for others. We want people to make their lives better, their skin tougher and their appetite for strength insatiable. And we want them to do it here.

My name’s Grant and I’m an 11 year veteran of the U.S. Navy. I graduated the U.S. Naval Academy in 2006 and spent my career as a pilot operating in multiple locations around the globe to include Japan, El Salvador, Greece, Bahrain, Iraq, Djibouti, and Qatar. I started CrossFit in October 2013 and immediately fell in love with it.

I love the challenge every day provides as well as the camaraderie developed in the box amongst the members. During my second tour in the Navy I was a flight school instructor pilot and between that and mentoring at the local high school I realized I thoroughly enjoyed teaching and wanted to do more, so I got my CrossFit certification upon leaving the Navy. I’m passionate about helping people realize and achieve their goals, all the while motivating and encouraging them to do so. CrossFit has had such a positive impact on my life, and I enjoy having the opportunity to do the same for others.

What’s up fitness fanatics! My CrossFit journey started way back in 2011 in a steamy tent in Kuwait. The group of guys and girls I had the pleasure of meeting really made my second endeavor (my initial encounter was a disaster) with CrossFit a great experience! So much so that I began shadowing classes and hanging out after class to find out all there was to know about this new fitness craze that was sweeping the country.

Long story short that experience drove me in the direction of wanting to become a coach and giving back to masses that same initial love of fitness that I encountered when I was introduced to CrossFit for the second time. Shortly after returning I joined a local box. After some time I began an apprenticeship and have been coaching for the past seven years.
