Kurt Keiser, Coach

Kurt resides with his wife, Katie in Morris County. He has always had a passion and drive for competition. Throughout his life Kurt has had many different interests in the fitness world. He grew up playing baseball, then switched to cross country running, and then to OCR racing. After a knee injury, Kurt started CrossFit and found his true calling. Originally intimidated, Kurt dove in head first and realized this was the path for him. It gave him the confidence, the structure and the support to accomplish anything in the gym and also in his life.

Kurt decided to give back to the community by becoming a trainer himself to share his passions. Kurt constantly persuing further education that will not only benefit his clients’ fitness but their lives outside the gym. The same passion and drive Kurt puts into his own training regime translates to his coaching strategies. He believes that a little progress each day adds up to big results! Everything is possible!

Freddy Ruiz, Coach

Freddy grew up in Morristown and has played baseball, basketball, soccer, football, wrestling and track. He then went on to play football in college as a starting linebacker for all 4-years. Competitive Friday mornings started his passion towards high intensity training, which led him to CrossFit. He was trying to train for the CFL and found CrossFit to maintain the competitive mindset and fitness level required for such a high level of performance. 

After 1 year of CrossFit and competing in local competitions, he found a new passion to spread his knowledge and love for the sport to others. He takes his unique perspective of coaching sports to his CrossFit classes. "You'll usually see me grunting, but don't be afraid to say hi!"
