MORE EYES ON THE FLOOR
We are always seeking ways to improve the athlete experience at the Cove and that starts with providing the safest environment and most effective coaching possible.
We’ve asked you all to sign into Wodify with each class you take (not to check your times and scores) but to track regular attendance for each hour of the day as this helps us make critical management decisions. Even though several of you still do not sign in (tsk tsk!) it is clear that certain hours draw bigger crowds than others — and we are making some changes to accommodate that.
We are thrilled to announce we are adding Assistant Coaches to several classes on the schedule. Starting Monday, we will have an assistant coach on the floor for most 5:30a classes and during select evening classes. So keep an eye out got two faces you know and love taking on new roles at the box.
Drew V. and Katie R. are not only CrossFit Level One Certified and experts in movement, but are experts in terms of understanding the Cove community. We are lucky to have them help us all become the best athletes we can be.
Drew is a former box owner himself and has been CrossFitting since the dawn of time (in CrossFit years, that’s almost 10 years). Not only is he an incredible athlete, he’s a beautiful mover and puts form above all else. He coached at CrossFit CSRA in which he helped found.
Katie’s growth is nothing short of extraordinary, and now she’s applying her passions to her profession considering a career as a PTA (Physical Therapy Assistant). In addition, Katie is one of our first members and truly embodies what it means to be a ‘Covie’. She has been serving as an assistant coach for our CrossFit 101 classes and also has helped out with our Fresh Start Challenge. Her deep connection to this community, combined with the fact that she wants to make the art of movement her full time profession, makes her the perfect fit for this role.
We hope you are as excited for this evolution as we are. Please welcome Drew and Katie to the Cove team. Give them a high five… and maybe a cup of coffee… when you see them!
