LEVEL 3 CERTIFIED CROSSFIT TRAINER
Victor's CrossFit journey started when he was in the Navy. As a Navy diver he trained future special operations candidates and prepared them for their schools. It was at this time that a Navy Seal candidate told him about CrossFit and stated he should incorporate it into his programming. He looked it up and has been hooked ever since.
After the Navy he joined a local CrossFit and got his first experience of what crossfit was really all about. It's the community that makes it work and separates it from any other form of fitness. Since his CrossFit journey began he has had an endless thirst for knowledge and has since completed his Level 1, Level 2, and Level 3 certification, CrossFit rowing certification, power lifting certification, kid's class certification, and USAW sports performance coach. He also had his NASM personal trainer certification but has since let that expire as he started leaning more towards CrossFit. He looks to continue his education in the fitness industry and pass it along to all his present and future clients.
Annamaria has a strong history of athletics. She comes from a boxing family and has been raised in a gym for most of her life. She started as a child in gymnastics. This passion has never left her and really came out when she found CrossFit.
She now has leaned more towards the Olympic lifting aspect of CrossFit and has her USAW sports performance coach certification.
She firmly believes in the family atmosphere that the CrossFit box creates and stands by the results she has seen throughout her years in CrossFit. She has an extreme passion for it and continually seeks out education in order to be the best coach possible.
USA WEIGHTLIFTING LEVEL 1 COACH
CROSSFIT LEVEL 2 TRAINER
Cristina's family encouraged her growing up to be active in many sports. She settled mainly on dance and softball. Her many years as a softball pitcher taught her dedication, commitment, and determination. While she enjoyed the team sport, she loved pushing herself individually: learning new pitches, fine tuning mechanics, and strategizing in the sport.
Her love of learning and her passion to help others led her to years as a School Psychologist. Studying how others learn, what motivates them, developing prevention and intervention programs, and providing consultation was always fun.
After starting her family, Cristina chose to dedicate her time to her children. She never expected that getting fit through her journey at CrossFit Cocoa Beach would spark such passion and fire in her heart. She once again had the opportunity to enjoy a sport with a group while also working on individual goals.
Becoming a CrossFit Level 1 Trainer and USA Weighlifting Level 1 Coach is one of her proudest accomplishments. She finds joy every time she gets to coach others. Connecting with people and helping them move in a positive and healthy direction is her favorite thing.

CROSSFIT LEVEL 1 TRAINER
Coach Ben comes to us from Sumter, SC. Unlike most coach bio's you may see, Ben did not have an incredible background filled with tons of sports and aspirations of the next level. Ben was a small-town kid who enjoyed partying on the weekend, super unhealthy eating and all-around poor habits. You could catch him cruising through McDonalds on the way to school, might even see him grabbing a beer and smoking on Friday nights.
Fast forward and Ben does something that no one expects, he attends a military college in Charleston, SC! And much to everyone's disbelief, graduates! See, Ben has always known that poor habits don't lead to successful outcomes, no matter what you pursue. It may have taken him well into his adult years to realize this but thank goodness he did.
About 3 years ago, Ben moved to Cape Canaveral, FL with his wife Jenna after they both quit their jobs and set out for new opportunities. His first home was the gym and family at CrossFit Cocoa Beach. It was here that Ben set out to change his lifestyle. After about 1 year of CrossFit, Ben attended the Level 1 course and attained his trainer certification. Over the past 2 years, Ben has taken small and large steps towards becoming a better human.
He enjoys everything about CrossFit. The community, the competition and the feeling of accomplishment after finishing what we thought was impossible. No matter where you are, things can always change for the better. Continuing in one direction because that's all we know is an excuse, as my Memaw always said "if you do what you always did, you'll get what you always got."
