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 Sarah. I was invited by a friend years ago to try out a CrossFit class, and has enjoyed it ever since! I was drawn to CrossFit because of the community, and stayed for the challenge (and the fun). I am a CrossFit Level 1 Trainer as well as a full-time dance teacher and yoga instructor. I love getting to know new people and I am excited to be part of the staff at CrossFit Haymount.
I am an Electrical Engineer by day and a CrossFitter by night. I began my journey with CrossFit after hearing about how some of the local Firefighters were using this training to better prepare themselves for their profession. I started out by attempting the 300 workout at the local gym that I belonged to, and fifty-four minutes later realized that I needed to do more of these workouts, learn how to deadlift, and find a place where if you drop a barbell people don’t stare. Soon after, I joined a CrossFit affiliate, completed my Level 1 in 2012, and Level 2 in November 2017. As a coach, I have truly enjoyed being able to help others learn about and participate in “the sport of fitness”!
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’ve been doing Crossfit since 2014 and competing since 2015. So far I’ve only obtained my level one but that’s only the first of many. I’m extremely passionate about the entire idea of functional fitness and health. Although I do enjoy competing, I’m much more worried about improving member’s health through increasing strength, metabolic conditioning, and developing coordination with new skills.

I found CrossFit as a supplement to my physical fitness training in the Army in 2010. Over the past 8 years, CrossFit has had a huge impact on my fitness, health, and overall wellbeing. The constantly varied functional movements quickly me addicted to the sport and I decided to attend CrossFit Level One in 2013. I became a coach to share everything I love about CrossFit with athletes of all fitness abilities. CrossFit has recently led me to the competitive sport of weightlifting. Not only am I passionate about sports, but also the nutrition habits that fuel athletes. I hold the importance of proper nutrition just as high as technique, mobility, and body mechanics. As a coach, I strive to develop well rounded and humble athletes who take pride in their fitness, health, and community here at CrossFit Haymount.
My name is Dennis. I’ve been in Fayetteville since 2006, started in the 82nd Airborne and finished my service with 3rd Special Forces Group. I have been passionate about fitness my entire life but was skeptical of CrossFit for a few years. I have friends to thank for getting me into it. Eventually I dove in and haven’t looked back. My favorite aspect of CrossFit is the “measurable and repeatable” workouts. Anything measured can be improved and if our effort isn’t measured – its just spinning our wheels. I am passionate about seeing life change and creating lasting, positive fitness habits for all ages.
I was drawn to yoga in 2010 while working as a spin and fitness instructor. I found yoga to be physically, mentally, and emotionally beneficial as it provided an escape to my busy life. I completed the 200-hour yoga teacher training in 2013 hoping to gift others with a dose of yogic revelation and have been teaching and learning ever since! I am a fitness and nutrition fanatic, but also a mother of two young boys. Knowing the complexities (and chaos) of motherhood, I appreciate wellness practices that are simple and effective. This is my approach to all things health, food, and fitness. I am eager to help you reach new limits and increase your body awareness and function – with a smile!
