Cameron has been a member at CrossFit Midtown since 2018, became a coach in August 2020, and earned his CF-L2 in January 2022. Having a background of 8 years of competitive swimming, he understands that while we workout individually, encouraging others is very important. He loves to see people push themselves and progress to a new level of movement they previously may not have been at. He helps people to set and hit realistic goals in a safe and effective way.
High-quality coaching in his own words:
I believe that the 3 most important aspects needed to make an exceptional coach at CrossFit Midtown are the ability to be understanding, encouraging, and providing a solid community environment. The skill level of athletes at CFM ranges across the whole spectrum. It is important to figure out where a person is coming from so you can understand their mindset and how THEY want to approach a workout. I would like to see myself as a role model to anyone who is just starting out in CrossFit by helping them with their fitness journey.

Advice to new CrossFitters?
Keep track of all your workouts and PRs. It feels so good to be able to look back and see how much progress you have made.
Favorite movement to coach?
Rowing workouts. I love encouraging people to hit different pace goals in a workout and make them dig deep for longer sets.
Favorite CrossFit movement?
Bar Muscle Up. When I started Crossfit I could barely do a single pull-up. It is one of those movements where it is easy to set a goal, hit it, then set another goal and look back at where you started.
