Matt has his CrossFit Level 2 Certification and has been doing CrossFit since 2015. He is also a certified Personal Trainer through CanFitPro and has been training since 2010.
Matt has always been passionate about health and fitness from a young age. From playing several sports throughout high school and university to getting his personal training certification, and both training and teaching spin classes in Toronto, fitness has always been at the forefront of his life.

Zack has his CrossFit Level 2 Certification and Burgener Strength Level 1 Certificate, and has been doing CrossFit since 2018.
"As a kid I wasn't really into sports and didn’t get into training until 2015. I have been doing CrossFit since 2018 and when I first walked into this gym, I knew right away it was going to be my jam. I had some uncertainties, but something deep down told me to keep showing up and that’s exactly what I did.
I love CrossFit because of the continuous development. Every day there is something to work on and turning my weaknesses into strengths is very satisfying. Each day presents new challenges but I love pushing myself and reaching new limits. The best part of CrossFit is the community you become a part of. Being surrounded by supportive coaches and members makes the fitness journey so much better. I love seeing our members reach their goals and sharing my passion with others. I have made lifelong friends through CrossFit that I now consider my family. The time I spend in the gym is my favourite part of the day!"
Thomas has his CrossFit Level 1 and has been doing CrossFit since 2014.
"I found CrossFit years ago when I searched for something outside of the globo-gym atmosphere. CrossFit's unique ability to provide a competitive but also encouraging atmosphere has kept me engaged since. I have found that one of the best attributes that CrossFit has helped to develop is mental resilience, and I find it rewarding to help others realize this potential and all the other attributes that CrossFit can provide."
Brandon has his Crossfit Level 1 Certification and has been doing CrossFit since 2012.
"I found CrossFit in my first year of university when a roommate showed me footage of the CrossFit Games – I was immediately amazed by the combination of strength, cardio, Olympic weightlifting, and gymnastics that took place in the events (Froning is the GOAT!). I grew up playing hockey and rugby at a very high level, and CrossFit perfectly combined the aspects of training I had grown to love.
Not being local to the KW area, and being in the worst shape of my life, I remember being extremely nervous showing up to the first several classes…but that didn’t last long, as I was fortunate enough to meet some of my closest friends at this very gym. I find coaching extremely rewarding – whether it’s helping a member perform a movement they haven’t been able to do before, hit a personal record on a lift, or just simply put a smile on their face and improve their day, nothing makes me happier than seeing our members progress and succeed.
If you’re thinking about giving CrossFit a try, do it – it will change your life, if you let it."
TJ has his CrossFit Level 2, CrossFit Kids and Catalyst Olympic Weightlifting Level 1 Certifications. He has been training in CrossFit for 10 years.
"I started for the fitness and stayed for the community. If you let it, CrossFit is life changing."
Shaw received his CrossFit Level 1 Certification in 2020 and has been an active member of CrossFit Cambridge since 2018.
"Our CrossFit community is built on passionate, determined, and supportive individuals. After a professional career in cycling, I needed a new challenge and a new community. CrossFit Cambridge had everything I was looking for and more. CrossFit is all about being your best self and supporting others to do the same. It's rare to find such a supportive, driven environment, and I wanted to be a part of that.
Coaching has always been a part of my life, both personally and professionally. It forces me to hold myself to a higher level and push my limits. I became a CrossFit coach to give back to our community."
Kim has her CrossFit Level 1 certification and CrossFit Kids certification.
"I was introduced to Crossfit 10 years ago while in nursing school and I’ve never looked back! I have always been an athlete and played college soccer and Crossfit was the one thing I was missing in my life! Crossfit is so amazing as it is geared to every level of fitness, whether you are new to starting your fitness journey or an experienced athlete, young, or old, everyone is welcome and can do Crossfit!
I became a Crossfit coach because I am a dedicated individual who wants to unlock hidden potential from our members by believing, and encouraging them to reach their goals and never giving up, even when it gets tough, because well, that only makes us STRONGER!
Crossfit has created one of the strongest platforms so that girls & women are proud of not simply what their body looks like, but what their body’s can do. And that’s why I love Crossfit and why I love coaching!
Nicola has her CrossFit Level 1 Certification and has been doing CrossFit for 8 years.
"I started CrossFit at CrossFit Cambridge 8 years ago and never looked back. The community, atmosphere and program had me hooked! CrossFit has been so much more than an hour workout a day. It has brought so many friends that have become family into my life. CrossFit is forever changing, challenging and rewarding.
I coach because I want to help be the change in someone’s life no matter what their goal is. I want to make that one hour of their day the most positive and rewarding experience for them."
George has his CrossFit Level 1
Chelsey has her CrossFit Level 1 Certification and has been doing CrossFit since 2018.
"I started working out in 2011 as part of a weight loss journey. From there, I began to strictly strength train and competed in Powerlifting throughout 2016-2018. I decided that I needed more fitness in my life and that is when I turned to CrossFit, the perfect combination of strength and conditioning. I started at CrossFit Cambridge and fell in love with the community. I have always had an interest in helping friends and family with their fitness journeys so I jumped on the opportunity to coach at CrossFit Cambridge to broaden that horizon and help more people reach their full potential.
The thing I love most about CrossFit is that it is truly for everyone of all levels. Whether you’re just starting your fitness journey or looking for a change in your currently training routine, CrossFit is for you!"
