MisFit Athletics began as five guys from the great city of Portland, Maine. We are undoubtedly a group of misfits that ended up here from very different paths, which is exactly how we were able to come together to create the program, coaching, media, apparel, and camps that you see today. The overall attitude of the group can be found buried in each endeavor if you take the time to look. The program is built on the fact that there are no gimmicks that will lead you to the promise land. Any happy, healthy, confident, and hard working athlete can use it as a tool for total preparation. Our media aims to educate, empower, and entertain. All other projects are a combination of these things and our personalities as individuals and as a group. Our focus on maintaining this level of authenticity and integrity has drawn thousands of people from dozens of countries into our family, and we can now proudly say that our family has done just as much to create this thing as we have. If you see us on the road or stop in to one of our affiliates please come say hello, we think you’ll be surprised at how interested we are in meeting you.
“Say yes to an opportunity, figure the rest out later. Fear is bullshit, take the risk. I’m very proud that in the 2015 Central regional, me and my team took 1st place in event 1 & 2…we came out hot and showed the world we were a force. Tied with that was qualifying for the 2016 games with my team, OC3 Black. You get what you work for not what you wish for; we can say we are going to do something but actually doing it is what makes the difference. Execution is everything.”
“I’m a math Ph.D. student who exercises during every bit of free time. My favorite competitive accomplishment hasn’t happened yet. I’ll be proud when I make the games, but even then i won’t be satisfied. Coming from someone who doesn’t have a consistent training partner, my best advice is to set goals for every workout… Goals that are almost unattainable and will make you uncomfortable. Be honest with yourself about strengths and weaknesses, and find a group of athletes and a coach (even if they are long distance) that will hold you accountable each and every day.”
“Former fat kid turned professional CrossFitter & Coach. I love heavy music & barbells. As of July 2015 I get to call myself the 32nd Fittest Man on Earth. Everyone should train with somebody every day whether it’s a training partner or a class. Intensity intensity intensity.”
“God, family, friends, CrossFit, and the great outdoors are what I live for. Competing at the 2015 East Regional is my biggest accomplishment because I feel I grew a lot as a competitor there. Always remind yourself why you’re doing this and have as much fun as possible while doing it. We are all blessed to do what we do, so give everything 100% and you will grow as an athlete every day.”
“I come from a family of 7 kids. Im most proud of my 16th place finish at the crossfit games at age 20 and the training advice I would give a newcomer is to make sure and learn the movements right the first time so you won’t have to undo bad habits.”
“I love God, people, and CrossFit. My proudest moment from competition is definitely when I finished first at South Central Regionals 2014. If I could give a stranger training advice it would be to put yourself in a position to be positive and enjoy training.”
