A Family Fitness Approach to CrossFit Training

A Family Fitness Approach to CrossFit Training

There will be days you won’t want to come in, there will be days when no matter how hard you try, the PR just doesn’t happen.

But that won’t deter us all from picking each other up, dusting ourselves off and striving for our best. The only competition you need to have here is the one within yourself. You dictate how far you want to go and we will support you the whole way.

A Family Fitness Approach to CrossFit Training

We want our gym to be your favorite place to go, we want you to stay as long as you’d like and we want you to feel at home while you’re here.

Our hope is that you find a new fitness family here. A family that will not only help you physically improve, but be there to cheer you on in those moments when you’re tired and just want to give up … because you can always do ONE MORE!

Craig Hoolahan, Owner

CrossFit Level 1 Certified / Burgener Strength Weightlifting Level 1

Craig Hoolahan is a father of two incredible children, whom he teaches that being spontaneous and impulsive isn’t always a bad thing. He thrives when he’s told something isn’t possible or is too risky. From Tough Mudders to MS150 bike rides to CrossFit, he’s learned that mental grit and heart are every bit as important as strength.

Brett Horchar, Coach at CMX Athletics

Brett Horchar, Coach

CrossFit Level 1 Certified / NASM-CPT

Fitness has always been a part of Brett’s life. When diagnosed with MS in March of 2018, he remained headstrong and believes the only limits he has in life are the limits he places on himself. He lives by this message and teaches with a passion to make members feel the same way. He loves nothing more than when he can help someone accomplish what they once thought was impossible. Brett was crowned the Fittest Man on Earth in the 2021 CrossFit Games in a new Men’s Neuromuscular Division for adaptive athletes. He hopes he can continue to inspire other adaptive athletes.

Tracey Weaver, Coach at CMX Athletics

Tracey Weaver, Coach

CrossFit Level 1 Certified

As a former first grade teacher and reading specialist, teaching is Tracey’s passion. Since leaving the classroom to raise two boys (Max and Jack), she has turned her focus to teaching health and wellness. Over the years, she has earned her Fitness Nutrition and Sports Nutrition certifications from International Sports Sciences Association (ISSA), as well as a Level 1 Precision Nutrition certification. Most recently, she earned a Personal Trainer certification through ISSA, as well as her CrossFit Level 1 Certification.

December 2020 marked eight years since she began CrossFit. Her first workout was “Death by Burpees”. Shocking she went back for a second day, and was hooked. The constantly varying workouts that the sport had to offer, kept her interested and made her feel alive! The workouts also gave her a competitive edge for other sports she loves, such as running, biking and softball. Coaching has always appealed to her. Over the past few years, she has volunteered each spring season as a Girls on the Run coach and brought her coaching abilities into a CrossFit setting.

She is excited to share her knowledge with the athletes of CMX Athletics. CrossFit is unique. There is something for everyone aged 10 to 105, no matter what the workout is on the whiteboard. When they walk through the door and into her class, a weight can be lifted … and she doesn’t always mean on the barbell. She wants athletes to feel at home, to be themselves, and teach them to make the most of their hour of fitness. We all have good days and bad days. And that’s ok! She wants them to know that they can meet and surpass any goal they set. They just need to trust the process and enjoy the journey.
