About Traci CaricoPhysical fitness became a consistent part of Traci’s daily life as she prepared for Air Force basic training. During her adolescence, she participated in the individual sports of gymnastics, swimming, and track and field. Traci continuously encourages people to join race teams or groups, and supports others to take on their first 5K. She has a passion for motivating and encouraging people to do things they didn’t think were possible, and strongly believes in the power of teamwork and camaraderie. She found this camaraderie within CrossFit in 2011, along with a broad, general fitness program that will accommodate anyone’s current fitness level.
About John ChampneyStaying healthy and keeping fit has always been a high priority in John’s life, whether it’s going out for a run, a bicycle ride, or playing ultimate Frisbee with friends. For years, John trained using a very sport-specific methodology. Though he had good results, he never felt as if he was reaching full potential. When his business partner, Traci, introduced him to CrossFit, John knew he had hit on the missing link in his physical and mental well-being. Through coaching and personal athletic experience, he believes that every athlete’s needs are similar. CrossFit addresses the need for core strength and conditioning regardless of one’s ability level.
About Stephen WaldrepDedicated to promoting fitness in their own lives as well as in their community, this family found the philosophy behind CrossFit to make perfect sense. After pounding the pavement for years and training specifically for running events, Stephen and Tessa were immediately intrigued by and drawn to CrossFit’s focus on variation. CrossFit is saturated with constantly varied functional movements that are performed at appropriate levels of intensity. Stephen and Tessa felt this type of training would align seamlessly with the health and fitness goals for their family. “CrossFit makes sense to us. Life is varied, not specific. We choose to train for life now.”

About Matthew MartinMatthew was always an active person growing up be it high school sports, mtn. biking, snowboarding, or just anything fun outside. He found CrossFit in 2012 through some good friends and was hooked. Matthew believes in positive results from CrossFit not only in the physical realm, but mentally and emotionally. CrossFit is not only something you do in the gym; it spills over into the rest of your daily life, and Matthew loves to help people achieve their goals and realize those changes.
About Ken MooneyKen has played sports and been involved in athletics from an early age. Over the years he used running, cycling and countless gym memberships as a way to stay in shape but always became bored with the same routine of upper body days, lower body days, and endless hours on the treadmill. Ken was introduced to CrossFit in 2012 and was hooked after the very first workout. The competitive nature, encouraging atmosphere, and constantly varied workouts completely changed his outlook on fitness and health. Ken appreciates being part of the encouraging community at CFS and the opportunity to help others improve their quality of life. “CrossFit has changed the way I exercise & train, the way I eat, it has improved my energy and health, and I get to be part of great community of athletes that are all about encouraging each other to be the very best each can be.”
About Grant HaynesAfter years of different workout programs, gym memberships, and diet plans, Grant found Crossfit in 2012. Ranking as one of the biggest lifestyle changes in his life, Grant loves to help other members find their true capability. He has performed several “firsts” at Crossfit Shelby from a simple pull-up to heavy olympic lifts. Always trying to bring a positive attitude is what Grant strives for every time he is coaching or participating. The family atmosphere in CrossFit is a key component that sets it apart from other programs. There is always someone to cheer you on, whether it is a coach or a fellow athlete.
About Clint BridgesIn his “younger” years Clint was active in many sports but concentrated on baseball. During college, Clint made a commitment to fitness. After several years of heavy strength training that led to injuries and surgeries, he decided to try CrossFit. That was almost two years ago, and he has not looked back. Clint enjoys motivating and teaching others the importance of health and fitness as well as proper movement techniques.
