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.

Matt has always had athletics in his life - soccer, baseball, etc. His true passion became swimming at a very young age. His swimming career ended after college and he began coaching. Matt also found himself in the typical globo gym scenario, becoming a "master" of the elliptical machine and incline bench press. This continued for many years, with limited results and boredom. In February of 2013, his wife signed him up to take an intro CrossFit class at his local box in California. The rest is history. Matt discovered his athletic passion again in CrossFit. He loved being coached, receiving technical tips, the competition and the community of the box. Coaching CrossFit was a natural fit since he enjoys passing on his knowledge and enthusiasm for fitness to the rest of the community.
Matt is a graduate of Steinert High School and is an Exercise Science student at Mercer County Community College. He has been lifting weights and competing in athletics his whole life. Matt found CrossFit in 2015 and has never looked back. Matt loves the community and the promotion of wellness and nutrition that CrossFit provides for people.
Tori has always been a competitive athlete, and will continue to be throughout life. She found her competitive nature at a very young age through soccer. Tori's passion for the sport really took shape during her high school career playing varsity at Steinert High School. This foundation allowed her to pursue her dreams of playing D1 soccer at Rutgers University. She feels humbled at what she has accomplished thus far, and is ecstatic that she can continue to express the love for the game by competing in a Semi-Pro league with the NJ Wildcats. Tori has learned that with success, sometimes there will be setbacks. She had her first ACL tear in high school. She began lifting and strength training, however; like any one new to the strength training world, she had a lot to learn. Her second torn ACL in college showed her that she needed to find something different, and that is when she found CrossFit Hamilton. Tori has now been involved with CrossFit for over 5 years and has never looked back. CrossFit keeps the healthy competitive drive alive, paired with a welcoming sense of community that keeps her coming back for more. Tori truly believes that no matter where you are in your fitness journey, CrossFit has no limitations and can benefit anyone and everyone.
I’ve been involved in sports and athletics all my life so being able to perform as best I can was important to me. I was in and out of globo gyms not really having any direction. Once I found Crossfit in 2011 I was sucked in. Being around other people that push you to be better is something I’ve always thrived from. Soon after I started Crossfit I knew I wanted become a coach and learn as much as I could about Crossfit methodology. My love for coaching and Crossfit led me to Crossfit Hamilton and the incredible community around it. What I’ve been able to accomplish as a CrossFit athlete and coach has changed my life.
