Stacy Swiney – Coach

In 2009 Stacy reached an all-time high with her weight.  She decided to try something different when she received a copy of an article from the CrossFit Journal. It was about The Zone diet. After 3 months of The Zone Diet and running she lost 30 pounds.  She wanted to take her fitness to the next level so she hired a personal trainer and in less than a year she lost 70 pounds and 7 dress sizes. She was hooked! From that point on, health and fitness became a permanent point of purpose for her life and a passion that she loves to share. In 2012, she decided to try out CrossFit.  Immediately upon walking into the box, she found what she was looking for: community, competition, and constantly pushing to be better.  Seeking knowledge in mobility Stacy went to get her Mobility 101 and 102 certifications from MobilityWOD.  She is a great addition to staff and we greatly appreciate her amazing story and awesome coaching!

 Brian Justusson – Coach

Fresh off completing his second half marathon in fall of 2012, Brian decided he wanted to stay in shape during the cold Michigan winters by trying something new with a couple friends. Unlike many CrossFitters, he had no athletic background and had not competed in team sports since elementary school. As a mechanical engineering PhD student at the University of Michigan, the CrossFit methodology was of high interest to him. Six months later, his friends had quit, but Brian was hooked finding himself studying movement patterns, force generation principles, and programming in his free time. With nearly 6 years experience, Brian naturally transitioned in to coaching and continues to help athletes of all capabilities with his unique perspectives and experiences and his inclusive personality.
