CHG COACHES
ADAM HENBY - HEAD COACH
"Don't stop when you're tired. Stop when you're done."

Adam started CrossFit in 2007. While working out in a globo gym he was asked to try a CrossFit workout. Thrusters and pullups. Sounded easy. Well after 15 minutes Adam was lying on the floor wondering what happened. He was hooked.

Within a few years Adam quit the globo gym, got CrossFit certified and opened up a garage gym. Now it was time to combine CrossFit and Chiropractic. With his knowledge of the human body the concept of functional fitness and high intensity just made sense. Catalyst Health Group was born (CHG).

CHG has been the business Adam had always dreamed of owning. Adam has also found a community of people who share his passion for fitness and helping people. Truly a blessing.
MELISSA MCKERNAN
“Whether you think you can, or think you can’t – you’re right.” - Henry Ford

Melissa started CrossFit in August 2012 after experiencing a tragic, life changing event. She was looking for something positive to occupy her time – something that would make her feel good and give her a sense of accomplishment. She found what she was looking for in CrossFit and was immediately hooked. She had always worked out in her life, but nothing ever made her feel like CrossFit did, nor had she ever seen the results she’s gotten. She pursued coaching because the principles of CrossFit make sense, the workouts are challenging, the sense of accomplishment is amazing and the community aspect of it is supportive and encouraging. She can be heard saying that CrossFit saved her life, and it did. She is passionate about the sport and wants to help each member achieve their goals and experience functional fitness in its truest form. CHG allows her to be her best and give her best – it’s her home away from home.
KATE BLACK
“If there is no enemy within, the enemy outside can do you no harm.” - African Proverb

Kate started CrossFit in 2013. Having enjoyed being a three-sport athlete throughout high school and dedicated to various challenging workout programs, Kate found herself quickly addicted to the athleticism and team atmosphere of CrossFit. A year later she began coaching because she genuinely enjoys being part of the small and big wins of her fellow athletes. Kate believes elements of CrossFit’s programming, including the nine basic functional movements, transfer directly to movements of everyday life and lead to longevity. In addition, she believes CrossFit’s holistic approach to wellness and sense of community are two things that can change your life.
GABRIELLA PARRINELLO
"Preparation and failure feed victory."

Gabby started CrossFit in 2013 because she was tired of feeling stuck in a body she didn't love for most of her life; she wanted to learn how to treat her body well and be happier (and she'll tell you that it just so happens that she is fitter, more confident, and has left her old self in the dust). Gabby became an athlete to experience what it truly means to push beyond the limits of her physical and mental self - she became a coach to share this experience with you. Gabby is passionate about this sport: the rush from challenges endured, the positive changes in mind and body, the achievement of goals, and the inspiring, connected community. Even more, she believes in the atmosphere, the fitness, and the family at CHG.
RYAN SPERRY
"When your mind is telling you you’re done, you’re really only 40 percent done." - Navy SEAL

Ryan started CrossFit right out of college in 2013 and hasn't turned back since. Always a rec league athlete, he was looking for something to do after college that was beyond the typical gym routine. CrossFit not only checked all the boxes, but it changed the way he viewed fitness forever. Everything in CrossFit made sense - movements that translate to everyday activity and goal-oriented training with a little competition and sense of community thrown in for good measure. It also taught him that the mental aspect is just as important to develop as the physical. He decided to pursue coaching after three years, driven by the desire to help others achieve their physical goals and to show them that they are capable of much more than they ever thought possible, both physically and mentally. CHG and the community that surrounds it provides the perfect place to do just that.
BEN SMITH
"Practice, endless practice, fueled by love." - Chris Moore

Ben found CrossFit after a few years' wandering around more traditional gyms. He dabbled in the occasional mainsite WOD at the YMCA, and eventually put all his chips in a membership at a box where a friend worked. Not too long after, Ben found himself mostly working out the garage instead of at a box. From there, the transition to coaching was almost accidental. Ben started programming the workouts, looking up ways to improve and stay safe, and as part of that helping everyone working out with him. After Ben moved his workouts from his garage to CHG, he found himself missing that piece of the experience and decided to pursue coaching. Ben met CHG when he dropped in to complete some CrossFit Open workouts. When Ben was looking for a box to call home, he came to CHG for the community that thrives there. Every time he walks in, that community proves just how right he was.
