Rob truly believes that fitness is a lifelong journey. Rob has been playing various competitive sports his entire life ranging from soccer to baseball. He has experienced many types of fitness programs and training routines throughout his high school and collegiate athletic careers. None of those fitness programs compared to the positive results he found with CrossFit in 2010. He was mostly surprised by the mental and physical challenges that CrossFit gives athletes every day. He also liked the fact that CrossFit supports a healthy and active lifestyle. Rob currently lives in Hamilton where he is heavily involved in the community as a high school teacher and athletic coach. He has years of experience coaching baseball and soccer at the high school level. Rob knows a lot about teamwork and the amazing accomplishments that can be reached with it. “CrossFit Hamilton is my team. It doesn’t matter who you are, when you walk into the door of CFH you are greeted with smiles and constant support for reaching your goals. It is the best fitness community around and I’m so proud to be a part of it.”
Barry has competed in organized sports all of his life including football, baseball and rugby. It was not until he found CrossFit Hamilton though, that he truly came to understand what it is to be fit. CFH reignited Barry’s passion for fitness and introduced him to a new passion, nutrition. Further, the impact of CrossFit has been so noticeable in his everyday life that he cannot help but want to share these passions with everyone he meets. The next logical step in Barry’s CrossFit evolution is coaching and he cannot be happier to be able to share what he has learned about fitness and nutrition with the community at CFH, the place where it all began for him. Barry is also an attorney. He and his wife live in Robbinsville with their two little boys.Qualifications:

Lisa has had a very active life having played softball, basketball, cheerleading (yes, it is a sport), collegiate level softball and college intramurals. As an adult, Lisa has done everything exercise....an extensive list of endless hours in and out of the gym.
Lisa, having needed a change, discovered CrossFit. Four years ago, after her first class, which included burpees, Lisa was captivated. Lisa’s CrossFit journey has impacted her in ways she didn't think were possible. Lisa is very grateful for the extensive role CrossFit Hamilton plays in her life.
In July 2012, Lisa obtained her CrossFit Level 1 Certificate. In October of 2012, she took the CrossFit Kids Course and became a CrossFit Kids Instructor. In addition to being a mom of 2 teenage boys, Lisa has been a teacher’s assistant for nearly 15 years at Pennington Montessori School. While at Pennington Montessori, Lisa started a physical education program for the students, as well as 2 youth fitness programs in Hopewell, NJ. Lisa’s greatest success comes from being involved and participating in someone's achievements and triumphs. Whether she is teaching a child to write his name, watching a teen fearlessly jump on a 36-inch box for personal record, or motivating an adult to lift a barbell over their head; this is where the true joy lies for her. Lisa enjoys teaching, coaching, motivating and experiencing the growth and possibility in one's ability. Impossibilities are replaced with endless opportunities, and she feel privileged to be apart of such awareness.
