Our Team My name is Candy and I have lived here in North Carolina for almost 4 years now. I have been a nurse for going on 8 years but actually left that career field last year to pursue coaching CrossFit full time. Born and raised in TN, I was a competitive athlete my entire childhood and young adult life. Between gymnastics and cheerleading I trained year round and began coaching once I graduated high school. Fast forward through a few years and a couple little humans later, I was looking for something to rekindle that “fire” inside. I found exactly that in CrossFit in October of 2016 and just never looked back. I’m beyond excited to share my love for this sport and just overall wellness with the CFH athletes! I have been a part of the Crossfit community since 2010. For the past four years, I have coached at boxes in both Connecticut and North Carolina, as a Level 1 CrossFit Instructor and a USAW Sports Performance Coach. I compete regularly in both local Crossfit competitions and Olympic weightlifting meets. I attended Methodist University as part of the Professional Tennis Management program, and my professional coaching experience includes nearly a decade of collegiate, high school, and country club tennis coaching. My name is Amanda. I am a full-time fire fighter and have a passion for fitness. I have been doing CrossFit for several years and have coached at multiple gyms. I love helping others move well and seeing life change through fitness. I am proud to be a member and coach in the CrossFit Haymount Community. I have been a part of the CrossFit community for just about 3 years, and I am so stoked to begin my coaching career at Haymount! My athletic background is largely individual sport like track and field; I love the pure competition of a 100 meter sprint or a one rep max deadlift. I also love the outdoors and can be found flinging myself down the mountains when the snow flies, or climbing up them in the summertime. It never ceases to amaze me how CrossFit makes me better at snowboarding or rock climbing or life. In “real life” I am currently serving at Ft. Bragg as a Religious Affairs NCO and I am also pursuing my associates degree in Physical Therapy Assistance. I began CrossFit in 2016. My objective is to coach and have fun with all of my athletes. I gained my CrossFit Level 1 certificate in 2018 and have coached over 150 people in how to properly practice functional fitness. I am excited to be a part of this community and share my love for fitness! My name is Noah. I am an active duty soldier with a passion for fitness. I love the way CrossFit pushes me to give my best effort in every workout. CrossFit has been life changing for me and it is my hope to help others through coaching find passion in fitness and healthy living. My name is Maria Micca. I am originally from Pennsylvania and in 2015 I graduated from Bloomsburg University with a degree in Exercise Science. Prior to going Active Duty Army I worked as an intern at Bucknell University with their Strength and Conditioning Program. I was also a personal trainer and a Gymnastics/ Cheerleading coach. I was a cheerleader for 10 years and I was a sprinter/hurdler in Track for 5 years. Fitness has always been my passion and I am very excited to share that passion with others and be a part of the CFH team! I started CrossFit in the spring of 2015 and have never looked back. I fell in love with the competitiveness and community aspect that CrossFit offers no matter what box you find yourself in around the world. I want to push myself and those around me to our limits every single day in order to reach our physical and mental peaks. My favorite Crossfit workout has to be Diane because it works on raw strength as well as throwing in a complex movement like handstand Push-ups. My name is Dennis. I am father of three and prior service member with over 12 years at Fort Bragg. I found a love for fitness during my time in Special Operations, where the need to be strong, fast, and able to endure became critical to mission success. I’ll admit, I was skeptical of CrossFit when first introduced, however after a couple months of training I knew it was exactly what I needed. I have since developed a second love for the sport of weightlifting. I enjoy the technical nature of the snatch and clean and jerk. It is my hope to provide a strong community, based in fitness, and dedicated to helping others create positive, lifelong habits of health and wellness.
