While pursuing a professional golf career post-graduation, Austin got into CrossFit in 2012. His then fiance, now wife, took him to class and he instantly fell in love with, not only, the sport of CrossFit but the community that surrounds it.
Austin played a handful of sports throughout high school and college where he played on the Furman University golf team for 4 years. Austin was able to grow and strengthen his coaching skills as the Assistant Men’s Golf Coach at Furman from 2013-2015. One of Austin’s best coaching attributes is learning how to coach each individual athlete, knowing everyone has their own individual style they prefer and will best respond to.
Austin is also an NCAA Division 1 Men’s basketball referee and uses CrossFit to help stay in shape to run up and down the court and get into position to make calls (correct calls of course!)
Grace signed up for CrossFit in 2013 and had no idea how that choice would impact her life, she was immediately hooked. The community, competitive atmosphere and healthy influences were all things she was looking for and didn’t realize that she needed. In 2015, she decided that she wanted to be even more involved and educated and decided to sign up to get her level 1 certification.
As a previous competitive gymnast and Clemson cheerleader, the fear of “getting bulky” was real. It is probably one of the biggest reasons that females don’t think they should lift heavy or even try CrossFit. One of her goals as a CrossFit gym owner is to debunk that idea and show people the impact it can have on your health – both physically and mentally.
Oh ya, that life choice also led her to meet and marry the love of her life and open a new business. Never know what life has in store.
