Elijah J. Bishop

PT, MPT, FST-L2, CF-L2 (Owner)

CrossFit Experience: 7 years

Throughout my entire life I have always been a physically competitive person and athlete. I have participated in many sports including, soccer, track and field, Tae Kwon Do, basketball, cycling, and triathlons. I have always strived to be the best that I possibly could at any sport in which I participated.

Although winning is great, improvement in personal time or performance was always more important to me. It was the “process of progress” that made me feel like a winner. Functional fitness allows me to witness that “process of progress” in myself as well as my athletes. It is the best feeling to help others achieve fitness goals that were once only unattainable dreams.
