Owner/Head Coach George Keklik is a personal trainer and specializes in Olympic weightlifting, gymnastics and nutritional guidance. He has been a CrossFitter for six years—and besides being very passionate about fitness and living a healthy lifestyle, is also very passionate about building strong relationships with the members of the gym. "If there is no trust, it makes reaching goals very difficult," he says. "I love seeing members progress. Day in and day out we see them coming in consistently just to challenge themselves every day. They walk in anxious and focused, and they leave with a smile on their face with a feeling of accomplishment. When members feel accomplished, you know you did your job right."
George played soccer from the days of his youth into the collegiate level, and it was his other passion until CrossFit came along. "Health and fitness was always a part of my life, and I can thank my parents for that," he says. "My fitness career started as a Personal Trainer at a commercial Globo gym. I knew it wasn’t where I really wanted to be, so I got my CrossFit Level 1 and started coaching classes at the CrossFit Gym I was attending for a few months. That CrossFit gym I once walked into to sign up for my first class, is now mine. I would have never thought five years ago that the business would actually be mine. I’m thankful every day and happy I do not have a 9-5 desk job."
When not in the gym, George loves to play golf (when it’s in season), and during the colder months is usually up north on the weekends snowboarding.
