OWNER/COACH

Fitness has always been an important part of my life, and so has helping others reach their own goals. When I first tried CrossFit I fell in love immediately. I knew this was this perfect place for me to be competitive, and to push myself beyond what I thought I was capable of. I spent time as a personal trainer in the past, so having the opportunity to coach at Crossfit was a given. Nothing beats the community, atmosphere, and intensity.

 

CERTIFICATIONS/EDUCATION:

  • CrossFit L-1
  • B.S. Exercise Science and Fitness Leadership

Jerrad Christopher

COACH

I was always active and playing sports, but after leaving the Navy I struggled to find a fitness routine that I enjoyed. A friend mentioned CrossFit and I decided to give it a try; from there I was hooked. My dedication to improve myself turned into my passion for helping others with their fitness goals. I have some injuries from the past that I haven’t let stop me, and I think it’s super important to set an example for my kids and our athletes that you can overcome any struggle or diversity. I like that CrossFit is for anyone, no matter their age or fitness level. Basically, I’m a rad dude with a bad ‘tude and I like to do stuff and things. Oh yeah, and I really love coaching people.

Mike Holt

Mike Holt

COACH

Mike is the elder statesman of the group. He has been involved in weight training longer than our other coaches have been alive. There is not a fitness program he has not tried and CrossFit is the method that hooked him for good. He has a passion for fitness and the success of our athletes. His main goal is to bring the best out of each and every athlete he coaches.

He has been teaching science at Muskegon Catholic Central high school and coaching athletic teams for 20 years and has recently turned his attention from high school athletes to our Box Crossfit athletes. He has always loved training and developing workout programs for his friends, wife Cathi, and sons, Nicholas and Coby, who are both athletes at the college level.

If you can’t find him in the gym (doubtful) then you will most likely find him on a Spartan Obstacle Race course somewhere in the US. He has developed quite a following of masochistic individuals who show up every Saturday for a special no time limit-no holds barred WOD (or WODS) experience. He is also our daily WOD programmer so if you come in and get beat down by one of our WODS then you know who to thank (curse). In either he will most likely say “you’re welcome.”

Chris Cross

Chris Cross

COACH

Growing up as a shy, small kid, Chris had a lack of confidence and faced bullies multiple times. He gained confidence in wrestling. Learning how to work hard, get stronger and face difficult situations head on created a love of fitness in Chris. After high school the love remained as he spent a year wrestling in college. After college he fell in love with bodybuilding and triathlons until he found crossfit as the perfect fit for his love of fitness. Not only for himself, from team captain of his team to now as a coach, Chris enjoys passing on the experience he has gained and knows the only thing better than surpassing his own goals is seeing others he has helped surpass their own.

I have been an athlete my whole life, swimming competitively in high school and University of West FL college. I swam for a year round team in Miami, FL but then moved to Michigan. I started CrossFit in 2016 to improve my strength and conditioning while looking for a swim team to join but ended loving madly in love with the sport of CrossFit. I have competed in several competitions; I love the feeling of competing. Now I am passionate about Coaching our awesome athletes!
