Cory is  passionate about one main thing, HELPING OTHERS! He has been in the fitness industry for over 5 years now and credits crossfit and his healthy lifestyle for his growth as an individual and a coach. He prides himself in being able to take someone completely new to the sport, and put them at ease to achieve whatever their fitness goals may be. Coffee is his guilty pleasure, especially local coffee. You'll often see him nursing a mug of thou mayest brewed java while coaching the morning wod.

Josiah is the newest coach at Brookside Crossfit. He's been a crossfit athlete for over four years, but He received his l1 crossfit certification and in 2017 started his coaching career with us. He is a patient coach with an emphasis on safety and correct movement. his welcoming and calm demeanor exemplifies Brookside Crossfit. His favorite snack is an apple with peanut butter, and when he isn't at the box coaching your classes you can find him hiking, biking, watching vine compilations, or performing in his new wave band: ghost chant. 


Mike is 50 years young and has been doing Crossfit for 12 years; coaching for 4 of those 12. He doesn't eat much in the way of processed foods although he will occasionally indulge in a decadent dessert. His favorite meal of the day is breakfast which is almost always a green smoothie weighing in at about 800-900 calories. his hobby, surprise, surprise, is fitness of all kinds; including biking and hiking. He loves to camp and, of course, Crossfit. His favorite thing about Crossfit is seeing other people embrace the challenge and break through physical and mental barriers using the Crossfit program.
