I’m happiest when I’m coaching. I’m motivated by the fact that I can take somebody who walks into our gym with a low fitness level and make them better, fitter, and happier.  I work diligently to get people to believe in themselves. Nothing compares to the joy of coaching someone through the toughest workout of their lives. email: mario@crossfitnaples.com

Since day one I have always loved working with kids. I strongly believe that kids need to be active and begin playing sports at a young age to truly develop a love for exercise. There’s no better feeling in the world than seeing one of your athletes so happy after PR-ing in a workout and knowing you helped put that smile on their face. I take pride in taking your average child and coaching them into reaching their full potential as a person. email: ashley@crossfitnaples.com

I derive great satisfaction from coaching and training in the gym.  I’ve been an athlete for most of my life and I enjoy participating in athletic and fitness experiences with other people.  It is my hope that my knowledge and motivation will inspire others to not only be a more well-rounded athlete, but also a better person. email: luke@crossfitnaples.com

I have so much fun working with teens. Having three children of my own, along with teenage siblings I feel like I can connect easily with young adults.  Watching them get motivated to get in shape is truly rewarding!  I have clearly seen how physical fitness can help in every aspect of my life; physically, mentally and spiritually.  I have the opportunity to work with these teens at a great stage in life where extra confidence is what they need and I feel CrossFit can do that. It brings me great joy to see them challenging themselves to surpass even their own expectations! email: cassie@crossfitnaples.com
