Exercise is challenging. How do you keep clients motivated and engaged?
Our environment is founded on community- competitive athletes, physicians, engineers, students, stay-at-home moms, business owners- who have dedicated themselves to a higher standard of fitness. In our group classes, we connect with each other and push each other to do more than we could ever do on our own!
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Dr. Greg Skelly and his wife, Caroline, led CrossFit classes for free in the church and community for a long time while working regular day jobs. Now, they're full-time fitness coaches that inspire and guide their CrossFitters all day, every day.
What do you love most about your job?
The most rewarding thing about what we do at CrossFit Edwardsville is seeing people achieve things they could never do before- a personal best on a lift, a first rope climb, a first unassisted pull-up, a first victory at competition, etc!
