Dan Gladston

CrossFit Level 1 Trainer, Brand X Training

I’ve always loved moving and staying active.  Whether it was playing sports or just biking around town with friends, you could probably find me outside.  I found it difficult to stick to one sport in high school because I wanted a taste of everything, but I
knew I had to stay active throughout my college years.  During the summer before starting college, however, I got lazy and barely did anything physical besides an occasional bike ride or some recreational tennis.  I also developed terrible eating habits, and while I didn’t gain any serious weight (thanks overactive metabolism), my body composition changed significantly and I was slowly losing athleticism and motivation to exercise.  I decided to take action and enrolled myself in a fitness class that semester.  As the months rolled by I was growing tired of the monotonous routine and knew that I was on the road to burning out.  I started doing workouts from a video program with my mom that used elements of CrossFit so I decided to investigate.

The rest is, as cliché as it may sound, history.  I’ve been a “CrossFitter” for just over two years now and it has become a passion I never knew I had.  CrossFit is not only the sport of fitness, it’s a lifestyle that has positively impacted the lives of so many around the world.  I became a coach to spread my love of health and fitness and to be there to celebrate each victory, no matter how small.  The best part of CrossFit is that the learning process is never over, nothing is ever easy, and the community is full of amazing people.

Mollie Kearns

CrossFit Level 1 Trainer

Fitness and being physically active has always been something I am extremely interested in. I’ve always had a love for fitness and played every sport growing up from ice hockey, football, soccer, basketball, softball, you name it. I played field hockey and basketball at William Paterson University and shortly after my career there had ended, I found CrossFit. It began to give me something to challenge myself in again. It has introduced me to some of my best friends and taught me and my family how to live a healthy lifestyle. Bringing that knowledge through coaching to share with other people has been something I have grown very passionate about as well. I have been coaching CrossFit for two years, personal training for four years, and currently coaching basketball at William Paterson University.

Joe Hilado

CrossFit Level 1 Trainer

As a physical therapy practitioner, I always look for ways to improve fitness and wellness as well as overall function. This is one of the biggest reasons I CrossFit

I started CrossFit around 2013 with a few friends. Before that, I went to a gym to work on specific body parts and was not really focused on overall fitness. One of my friends stumbled upon an online deal for CrossFit. We went through the training process and I was immediately hooked.

The whole concept CrossFit definitely aligns with not only physical fitness, but also overall wellness, which I believe should be incorporated in physical rehabilitation. 

Now that I’ve been doing CrossFit for a few years, I always try to incorporate what I know from physical therapy as well as vice versa. I don’t see myself stopping anytime soon.
