Coach Adam Merkado-Weiss is our Olympic Weightlifting, CrossFit and On-Ramp Coach, and also does Personal Training, Movement Correction & Modification. He most enjoys expressing himself colorfully, which is appreciated by our tight-knit community. “We’re one big family, full of love and support,” he says. “We have people from all walks of life, diverse backgrounds, and different athletic experiences, yet everyone looks out for each other. They trust us as coaches and truly appreciate the work we put into their health, fitness, and happiness. It’s great to know you lead such a fantastic group of people.”
Athletics and sports have always been essential in Adam’s life—in fact, for more than 20 years, he has participated in competitive Alpine Ski Racing. “I tried multiple avenues to keep in shape for ski racing (HIIT, Boxing, Muay Thai, MMA, Jiu-Jitsu), but nothing was the perfect fit to train like a complete athlete. After a knee injury, I came across CrossFit and used it to get back to full strength.” From there, he became certified and pursued coaching as a full-time job.
