Who should CrossFit?
CrossFit is for everyone from elite athletes to grandparents! CrossFit practices functional movements that everyone does on a daily basis. The only difference between the training needs of an elite athlete and a grandparent is weight, volume, and speed. What does that mean? Essentially it means that all the movements we do in CrossFit are universal in their ability to improve performance. Making an adjustment in a workout for a beginner (something we call ?scaling? a workout) means reducing the total reps or rounds, reducing the distance, eliminating the clock, reducing the weight, and/or reducing the complexity of a movement.

Carly “Carzilla” Neilson is a Level 1 certified Crossfit trainer and a Crossfit Olympic Lift certified trainer. She developed an interest in Crossfit while pursuing her degree in Exercise Science at MTSU. As a competitive athlete in high school, she had a work ethic that pushed her beyond her limits and she encouraged others to do the same. It was between high school and discovering Crossfit that Carly found out how difficult it can be to juggle all the tasks of being an adult and found herself 100 pounds heavier than she is now. She knew she had to take action and tried Crossfit. When she started out, she was barely able to do a push-up, but kept at it and went on to compete in the Crossfit Regionals as an individual. Crossfit not only changed how she looked and felt, it also changed the way she thought about exercise. She is enthusiastic about helping others achieve their goals and firmly believes anyone is capable of doing anything if they have the will to do it.
Misty is a CrossFit Level 1 certification holder, is an ACE certified Personal Trainer as well as CPR/AED certified. She studied Sociology, Nutrition and Spanish and played softball at the College of St. Benedict in MN.
Sports and fitness have played an essential part of her life. She has run half-marathons, participated in duathlons, adventure races and 24+ hour races in Iceland, Colorado, Georgia, Arizona, Oregon and Tennessee.
CrossFit has provided a great outlet for improved performance and high intensity competition. She placed in the top five in several recent local competitions and during last year’s Open in the top five percent regionally. She feels that whether you compete or not, CrossFit makes life better.
CrossFit is for everyone from elite athletes to grandparents!
