When Brian Maro dared his friend Jeremy Yoder to come with him to CrossFit classes for two weeks, Jeremy wasn't worried. After all, he had been a certified fitness instructor for more than 15 years and had earned a black belt in tae kwon do, a national title in full-contact sparring, and an accreditation in advanced scuba diving. He could handle it.
But after his first session, the challenging workout had humbled him, and Jeremy had a new respect for the abilities of seasoned CrossFit athletes. Determined to improve, he threw himself into CrossFit five days a week, eventually earning certification as a CrossFit Level 1 trainer.
Today, Jeremy and Brian join forces to captain their own CrossFit gym—CrossFit Primal. Amid kettlebells, pull-up bars, and oversized tires, the duo of certified trainers and their staff lead students through CrossFit's signature high-intensity functional workouts. The coaches also slingshot students to their fitness goals with nutritional guidance that includes recipes and personal consultations. Committed to creating a supportive community, instructors provide their students with routine encouragement, host regular class parties, and devote every third class to faithfully re-creating scenes from Cheers.

A bodybuilder and former firefighter, a competitive runner, and a martial arts champion lead the workouts for Elite Body Boot Camp at Elite Edge Gym.

He has also structured the program for optimum results—ideally, his campers report to two days of kickboxing and two days of weight training per week, or one day of kickboxing in iron boots.
