She was reluctant to try CrossFit due to being so used to working out in a gym almost completely by herself. But once she started, she quickly fell in love with the sense of community that comes along with being part of Three Danes CrossFit. Nicole believes that Three Danes CrossFit is more like a family; one full of laughs, love, and lots of hard work.
Nicole loves pushing people and seeing them be amazed by their new-found abilities. She believes that people have so much to offer and are capable of great things; and that sometimes a little extra encouragement is all that is needed to help them attain their goals. What she loves most is that CrossFit is a never-ending challenge and each day you show up, you have a chance to grow, change, and become better! Plus, it gives her the strength to survive the dog pile snuggles every night on the couch.
Nicole can be found at the box; just look for someone eating, barefoot, holding a Starbucks iced coffee, or all of the above. She loves helping people feel comfortable and can’t wait work out with the next new member.
CrossFit Level 1 Trainer
A military buddy introduced Carl to CrossFit 4 years ago and he has been hooked ever since. The level of difficulty and attention to detail that it required fit well with his, ahem, slightly obsessive-compulsive personality. Upon retiring from the police force in 2015 Carl’s innate drive to both improve himself and help others pushed him to get his Level 1 certificate. Having the role of a CrossFit Trainer allows him to share his love of CrossFit (as well as good food) with others on a daily basis. His goal is to continue his CrossFit education so that he can become an even better coach.
You will quickly find out that Carl loves a neat, orderly CrossFit box and he can often be found organizing things or straightening them up. However, this also allows members the opportunity to drive Carl crazy by moving things around or mixing them up. It’s all in good fun, and just another reason why Carl loves the sense of community that CrossFit brings to fitness and how everyone 'suffers' together during a WOD.
