Our hearts are bursting with joy to announce we are bringing back resources to help our Cove parents, kiddos and new/expecting moms! This place is has always been about more than just fitness — it is about creating a space that allows for meaningful human connection.
And we feel these two additions will allow us to do just that for a group that arguably needs it most:
1. We are opening up the kids room again! It might be in a different location (in the back room now) but the love will be the same! Right now we only have child care coverage for the 9:30 AM on Tuesdays (with the dreamy Jessica Sharp starting THIS Tuesday!) but we are looking for another sitter to fill at least 2 more hours a week. We will soon be charging a small fee per child to use the kids’ room and we are working through a reservation system, but not this week as we test things out. And if you know someone who might be a good sitter candidate, let us know!
2. We are THRILLED to announce Coach Maddie is joining the staff and will be covering several of the kid coverage hours at 9:30 AM. In addition to being an experienced CrossFit Coach who can help ALL our athletes, she is also a postpartum expert and will be a great resource to many of our mothers and expecting mothers who attend daytime hours. She is amazing and we are thrilled to have her. Here’s a little bio and please give her a HUGE Cove welcome!
Crossfit Level 1 Cert
Pregnancy and Postpartum Cert (Brianna Battles)
“When I found Crossfit in 2014, I was seeking a workout routine that embraced my body type, get me stronger, and where I could be a part of a community. The year after I graduated college, I was lonely, running on my own and attempting to lose weight to be the stereotypical “skinny girl”. However, I have been an athlete all my life and my body is not supposed to be skinny! I loved joining Crossfit because strength over aesthetics is emphasized and I got addicted to getting stronger and stronger!!
I have done several local competitions and love partner workouts. My favorite barbell movement is overhead squats (even though I’m not great at them!). My favorite girl WoD is Karen. I am a workhorse, I love longer, endurance intense workouts like Fight Gone Bad. And I absolutely love benchmark workouts where I can continue to measure my fitness.
Coaching is a passion of mine and have been doing it since 2015. Last year during Quarantine I became pregnant and wondered more about how to workout safely while carrying a little human in me, so I became certified in Pregnancy and Postpartum. I gave birth to my sweet baby Jane just before Christmas. Now I am starting a new chapter of my fitness journey as a postpartum mommy.”
