Nick Mann: CFW Associate
Back in 2005, if you stopped by Lloyd’s firehouse and asked him if he thought he was fit, he would have confidently told you “Yes!” while finishing up his last set of bicep curls. So, when he first tried CrossFit back then, it’s no surprise that his ego was easily crushed.
Lloyd’s obsession with CrossFit wouldn’t begin until a few years later in 2011 when he finally decides to step into CrossFit Woodbridge. Humbled, Lloyd took to functional fitness immediately and quickly phased out the isolation movements and random cardio sessions he had been doing his entire life.
Lloyd literally dwells about CrossFit every single day and dreams about CrossFit every night. His obsession for proper form and efficient movement coupled with his good-nature attitude and genuine desire to help people makes Lloyd a stellar Coach.
Strengths: Moving a barbell (except anything with “Dead” in it’s name)
Weaknesses: Almost everything bodyweight (includes running). WODs over 2 minutes.
Lloyd has never had a cup of coffee.
Lloyd hates practically every vegetable (makes Paleo real tough).
Lloyd is a sprinter but doesn’t like to run. He also loves to do Cleans but wouldn’t care if he ever did another deadlift for the rest of his life.
Lloyd does not know how to do the Electric Slide.

CFW Kinetic Bootcamp Head Coach
Student at George Mason University (Class of 2014)
Lauren found CrossFit through a recommendation from her sister, Amy. She joined CFW in 2011 and immediately fell in love. The passion she has developed for the sport is greater than she could have ever imagined. She played soccer all through her childhood and into college, but the seemingly insurmountable passion she had for soccer was no match for the sport of fitness.
Lauren worked as a Pool Operator for 6 years before being hired as a coach at CFW. She then helped CFW introduce Kinetic Bootcamp to the community and became the head coach of the program in April 2013. Seeing progress and improvements in her athletes gives her an incomparable feeling of accomplishment.

In the world of fitness, there isn’t much Eve has not accomplished. Since a young age, Eve has displayed her athletic prowess at a multitude of sports: softball, track and field, volleyball, and even wrestling. She would go on to wrestle for a qualification to the Olympic Trials and play volleyball in college on a scholarship.
During her adult life, Eve dabbled in everything fitness related from triathlons to amateur bodybuilding.
Eve’s lifelong passion for fitness inspired her to pursue a career as a Personal Trainer and Aerobics Instructor. Her education and experience enabled her to work and develop programs for seniors, obese children and athletes.
It would not take long before Eve would stumble onto CrossFit. Seeking a change in her normal routine, she would try a WOD at CrossFit Woodbridge. Eve soon realized CrossFit was far superior to any fitness program she has ever tried. Eve’s loves for fitness also lead her to start a Crossfit Kids program at CFW. Eve is the head of our CrossFit Kids Program that officially kicked off in the summer of 2012. Eve really enjoys working with the kids and having a blast exposing them to CrossFit watching them excel as their strength, character, and overall love for health and fitness.
Eve is a great teammate and enthusiastic supporter of everyone in the gym.With an outgoing personality and a winning smile, Eve will make anyone feel like they can do anything. Eve is also passionate about helping the other women at CFW to exceed their own performance expectations and lift heavy weights while building their confidence, strength, and having lots of fun.
