JOE FRASER

 

CO-OWNER, HEAD PROGRAMMER, NASM CERTIFIED PERSONAL TRAINER, CROSSFIT LEVEL 1 TRAINER, CROSSFIT KIDS CERTIFIED

I grew up with a passion for sports and have been surrounded by training, competition, and teamwork since the age of 8. From the start of my athletic career, the excitement of pushing myself to new levels of performance has always been the most rewarding.  Since 2009, Crossfit has given me an outlet to be competitive, meet friends, and achieve levels of fitness I never thought I'd be able to obtain.  My experience with Crossfit, competitive wrestling, lacrosse, soccer and baseball fueled a similar drive in life that I enjoy sharing with our adult and youth fitness members.

I was one of the co-founders of Iron Crossfit North Brunswick in 2013. Back then and today my goal was to pair my passion for business with life-changing strength and conditioning results for people.

Favorite movement: Squat Clean

Favorite workout: "Diane"

JEN GROSSO

CO-OWNER, CROSSFIT LEVEL 2 TRAINER, CROSSFIT SCALING CERTIFIED

I am a masters athlete and entrepreneur who has been coaching in one form or another for over 20 years and I love every minute of it. Although I was a fitness instructor in my 20s and an occasional runner in my 30s, I fell in love with the barbell in my 40s.  I wish I found Crossfit when I was younger! Crossfit is by far the most fun I've ever had getting fit . Now, I get to share my passion by helping people get faster and stronger at any age and from any background. My wish is for everyone who comes through our doors to be open to the possibility that they can amaze themselves.  

Favorite Movement:  the Deadlift. It is the first thing that made me realize I could get very strong. I also have an unusual love of burpees.  

Favorite WOD is Cindy because I get to move fast and do pull ups - something that I never thought I would ever be able to do. 

Favorite Drink: Coffee. I am a busy mom and I own another business so coffee is life! 

Favorite splurge: Espresso chip ice cream because ... I love coffee.
