ALEX HASKINS

Hi!  My name is Alex and I'm the owner and head trainer here at CrossFit Alacrity. I was involved in just about every sport possible when I was younger, but didn't continue with any sports in college. I still needed a competitive outlet though, and so I took up weight training. This soon evolved into a degree in Exercise and Movement science and a personal training career.  After a herniated disc forced me to reevaluate my training, I found CrossFit. The emphasis on proper technique as well as constantly varied training (I get bored easily!) soon had me hooked as a way to keep training hard despite my injury. I quickly recognized it as a more complete method of training that is able to address everything the average person is missing in the gym! The physical fitness gained from CrossFit is only the beginning of the benefit. The community, mental strength, and improved well-being are really what makes it special, and I can't wait to share it with you!

JESSIE THOMAS

Fitness has been an important part of my life since early childhood, not only for my physical well-being, but my mental well-being too. Growing up in a small town, there wasn’t much to do besides playing sports. I played basketball, softball, volleyball, soccer and ran track. You could say I’ve always been somewhat of a gym rat. 

I pushed back when my husband suggested we give CrossFit a try back in 2015. I wasn’t too sure that group fitness classes would be the “thing” for me. Well, I was wrong! I fell in love immediately. CrossFit brought me back to my love of team sports, the amazing comradery it presents, and gave me the competitive outlet I’d been yearning for since high-school. Beyond that, I love how CrossFit can be molded and adapted for anyone!

I am beyond blessed that I get to experience helping people move better and feel better about themselves everyday. I love watching members, from all walks of life, grow and succeed in ways they never knew possible with CrossFit! Anyone can do this!

TIFFANY RONDEMA

Hey there! I am Tiffany and I am a trainer at CrossFit Alacrity. Growing up I played sports and danced and I knew I was destined to dance my life away, but early into my college years I got married and started reproducing :). Unfortunately, for me, that put an end to my dreams of dancing. I remember the day I decided to watch a YouTube video about CrossFit and it was the only thing that ever gave me the same feeling of passion, motivation, joy and raw emotions as it does to watch someone dance. It was emotionally moving and I was hooked. The physical changes quickly out-did my years and years in the traditional gym, but I can’t express enough about the emotional benefit I have gained from joining CrossFit in regard to dealing with PMDD, body image issues and social anxiety. I look forward to sharing in your journey of CrossFit and being part of the amazing moments that will come.

NOAH THOMAS

My name is Noah Thomas and I'm a grateful coach and member of CrossFit Alacrity.  Growing up I played every team sport imaginable and thrived in a group atmosphere.  After High School, I quickly found myself more and more isolated in my fitness journey and started working out alone in a traditional Globo gym. 

As I began to experience depression and anxiety into my 20's I knew I needed a change of scenery which led me to try a CrossFit class.  I immediately fell in love with the community and team environment while also being intrigued by the fact that I could not perform many of the functional movements. This realization lit a fire in me to become an athlete again and to be a part of something bigger than myself.  As my skills and fitness improved so did my mental health which led me to a natural desire to pay it forward to the next person who might walk in the door. 

I know the importance of leadership in my life and I continue to work very hard to cultivate the coaching and interpersonal skills required to be of maximum service to others.  I absolutely love CrossFit and can't imagine not having it in my life.  I have made life long friends and my overall health has never been better.   I look forward to being apart of your fitness journey.

SARAH DIBB

Joining CrossFit Alacrity allowed me to push myself in a way that would help me progress physically and mentally.  The relationships I have built have added to my success and kept me accountable. I found that the members are incredibly supportive and the coaches are very knowledgeable, patient, and really cared about my goals.  I had never been in a gym setting where people cheered on the other members as they finished the workouts. 

CrossFit challenges the body and the mind all at once. During every workout, I find myself pushing my body and encouraging my mind to make it through. With each day, I am improving and working on my form.  It is exciting to see and feel the difference. I am gaining more confidence in my abilities and am continuously surprised what my body can do. 

I became a CrossFit coach because I want others to experience this empowering sport and feeling. I am here to help every member reach their full potential, whether I am coaching classes, meeting with a member for personal training, goal setting sessions, or nutrition guidance, I am dedicated to optimizing each person's experience.
