Tommy Rothtommy

Head Coach/Owner

As a three sport athlete in school sports (lacrosse, wrestling, and soccer), staying active was always a passion of Tommy’s.  While in college at St. Josephs University, he joined the military through the ROTC and was commissioned as an Active Duty Officer in 2005.  Fitness and staying in shape was something that was a big priority of his because of his job as well as the way he wanted to feel and lead his life.  After moving to Northern Virginia in 2010, he started CrossFit and was immediately hooked.  Not only had he found a great workout program that was never boring and showed quick results, but he also found himself working out with an incredible group of supportive people that he enjoyed calling his friends.  Coaching, mentoring, leading, and CrossFit are all big passions of his and he looks forward to sharing those passions with you to help you achieve your goals.

BJ Fischerpic of bj

Coach

BJ was a two-sport athlete in high school (baseball and soccer) and a D1 NCAA athlete in college, where he played soccer for St. John’s University.  When college sports ended, he continued to train in standard gyms but always missed the community and competition of team sports.  In 2014, BJ tried CrossFit for the first time and was instantly hooked.  The constantly varied, high intensity workouts provided results he had not experienced in any other training method.  Those results along with the community made it an excellent fit.  BJ loves sharing his years of training experience with others and helping them to reach their own athletic goals.
