Coaching Philosophy: I relentlessly coach good form. Every movement has safe, proper form and I strive to make sure that my athletes learn & use it. Coaching excellent form is my primary goal each and every time I train. My secondary goal is to make sure you have FUN and laugh, at least a little bit. My jokes are not only dirty, but they’re also HILARIOUS. ;)
Name: Josh Eventoff
Certifications: Crossfit Level 1 Trainer (CF-L1), Personal Trainer - International Sports Medicine Association (ISMA), United States Professional Tennis Association (USPTA), Professional Platform Tennis Association (PPTA)
Bio: I grew up in Baltimore playing as many sports as possible where I eventually discovered tournament level tennis. By High School I was a state and regional tennis champion, and began competing nationally and internationally. I also spent a lot of time in the gym strength & speed training, and doing road-work for cardio.
For my freshman and sophomore years in college, I earned an athletic scholarship to Towson University where I was awarded the East Coast Conference (ECC) and East Coast Atlantic Conference (ECAC) Championship at the number one singles and doubles positions. I was also recognized for having the highest winning percentage at the number one singles position in the history of the program.
For my junior and senior years of college I attended and graduated from the University of Maryland where I earned All ACC honors and played in the number one and two singles and doubles positions. While in college, and for a short time after, I competed part-time on the ATP Tour, but had athletic injuries (two broken ankles) and several bouts of tendonitis that sidelined me long enough to finish my degree and start coaching tennis and fitness to as many folks as possible.
I still coach elite juniors and compete professionally and am currently working on a top 10 national ranking which is another reason that I have embraced crossfit…everyday is GAMEDAY!

Name: Morgan Orndorff (Trainer)
Certifications: Crossfit Level 1 Trainer (CF-L1), Crossfit Judges Course, Emergency Medical Technician and Mixologist
Bio: I started crossfit almost 2 years ago and fell in love immediately. You never finish last because there is always someone willing to work and push you to your physical limits to complete the workout. The community aspect is something else that is amazing about Crossfit. No one looks at themselves as better than the next and that in itself is amazing this day in age. I have become a better person overall thanks to Crossfit and the amazing people that surround it. I do not dread working out anymore because it is made fun and it is constantly changing. I enjoy helping and training people new to crossfit and bringing out the potential they have as an athlete.
