where friends come to train
Shianne Huffman. I grew up in Florida. I played volleyball, basketball, softball and ran cross-country in high school. Upon graduating high school, I enlisted in the Air Force for two years before transferring into the Army for five years. I started CrossFit in 2013. After I got out of the Army, I moved to Columbia, SC to be close to family. Once I received my A.S. in Basic Science from Midlands Tech, I transferred to USC Aiken for a B.S. in Exercise and Sports Science and a Minor in Professional Writing (Graduation May 8, 2019.). This put me closer to North Augusta, where I worked out at CrossFit North Augusta. In 2018, I received my Level 1 Certificate and started coaching. I realized I loved the weightlifting side of it more and got my Level 1 Cert from USAW. I love competing and CrossFit allows me to continue to compete.
Will Hedges. I'm originally from West Palm Beach, Fl. I moved to Augusta in January 2010. Literally my first night in Augusta I got talked into trying out crossfit. I was overweight and definitely out of shape. To paint a picture I couldn't even do a sit up. But off I went and tried crossfit due to my cousin's persuasion. And I was hooked. I lost 55 lbs that first year! I love crossfit and all it brings to the table. I got my level 1 cert in 2015. I love coaching. Helping people do things they never thought they could is great. I believe my journey helps me reach out in my coaching. Crossfit is definitely my passion.
Mark Strahler My background in fitness and coaching started in the 70's as a ring specialist on the University of Pittsburgh Gymnastics team. After graduation, I was an assistant coach for the team for 10 years. This is where I learned that I loved to help people accomplish gymnastics type fitness goals. Seeing the look on peoples' faces the first time they get a muscle up or string together 10 toes to bar for the first time is really gratifying. After years of working out on my own, I started CF after my son, Mike, got involved. I worked out and did initial training at his gym in 2013 and got hooked. I got my CF Level 1 certificate in 2015 and am trying to become a better coach in all areas, not just gymnastics. Hopefully I will add more certificates in other training areas soon. I own my own small business in the machinery and tool industry and spend my non gym free time rehabbing my older Craftsman style home.
Julie Miller Julieis a 15 year veteran teacher in the states of Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina. She is used to dealing with crying children, so CrossFitters aren't much of a change for her.

Casey Collins Casey is an Alaskan native and was a cheerleader in middle and high school. When she was 20 years old, she left Alaska and ended up here in Augusta. She has a wonderful boyfriend (Kerry) of 8 years and is a mother of 2 children, Brendan (14) and Lily (10). Before CrossFit, she tried traditional gyms, but became bored and never stuck with it. She learned about CrossFit through Groupon and after her third session was hooked.
