Team

Steve ShawSteve Shaw

Originally born and raised in Toronto, Canada, a lifetime of athletics and involvement in sports has come full circle with the discovery of CrossFit. A current resident of Peachtree Corners, I am married with 2 beautiful children. The methods, theories, and scientific approach to CrossFit are what attracted me and the results have followed easily. I have been CrossFitting for over 5 years and with years of coaching youth hockey and lacrosse, I decided in October of 2014 to become a certified trainer to share my love of the sport and to simply, improve lives.

As a 19 year law enforcement agent and former United States Marine, the need for being physical fit goes without saying. But CrossFit is also about life. The ability to live life to its fullest and be physically prepared to accept any challenge that your day dictates with confidence and strength. CrossFit develops not only ‘abs’, but relationships, confidence, self-esteem, and provides a path for both physical and mental toughness that doesn’t come in any other program. I love coaching and assisting athletes in reaching their goals.

Trevor WoodwardTrevor Woodward

Trevor is a CrossFit Level 1 Trainer. Now in his mid-20s, Trevor started his health and fitness journey in early high school after years of wearing “husky” sized jeans and taking the appearance of a bowling ball. The light bulb went off one summer afternoon watching Drake & Josh with one hand in the bag of Cheetos, and he never looked back. Running, weight lifting, body building, gymnastics…he tried it all. He combined (and varied) these modalities as often as he could to become the fittest, pound-for-pound athlete he could. During his senior year at UGA, he found CrossFit, realizing this was what he had been looking for the whole time.

Since CrossFit, his life has changed. He now can wear tight shirts, snapbacks and girls love him. You can find him on weekends trolling Ponce City Market asking strangers what their “Fran” time is. On a real note, Trevor reiterates that CrossFit is for everyone. It has given him confidence, years on his life, and loads of fun.
