Introducing the Sweat Factory Rockledge Team

Meet the fitness experts ready to help you achieve your fitness goals and your potential.

Our story

Why we created Sweat Factory.

Ever feel like you didn’t fit in? Ever work so hard in a sport and barely even make it to being average? Maybe your heart is there but the physical attributes aren’t. Maybe you start then stop then get angry at yourself. This is so frustrating, demoralizing, and a total confidence killer.

When Maci and I opened Sweat Factory, we wanted a gym where everyone fit in whether they were skinny, heavy-set, old, young, athletic, non-athletic, and all of the above. We wanted everyone to feel accepted just as they were. We both know what it feels like to not fit in. Neither of us was a superior athlete and we both struggled with our weight at one time or another.

When you find that place where you fit right in because you are you, that’s when you will thrive. This is true not only for fitness but also for health and happiness. SFC is now a family that exemplifies this value. We embrace and encourage one another to love ourselves for who we are while always striving to be better.

‍Sweat Factory is a place to call home. To accept each other and be accepted despite all our quirkiness and differing personalities. We love hard and give love equally hard.

Happiness is key. This truly is our happy place.

After my time playing College Football ended, I became comfortable as a “Couch Potato” for the next ten years. Then I discovered the Body for Life challenge and lost 35 lbs. TWICE! Ask me & I’ll share the story with you. The new me began training for Triathlons. I have competed in over 100 triathlons including 4 half Ironman and 3 full Ironman races, 15 marathons, (6) 50k marathons, and (4) 50-mile ultra marathons. I found Crossfit 9 years ago when looking for something new and fun. Maci and had started a website coaching others in nutrition and exercise. Then we decided to begin our new journey with our own CrossFit Box. My background also includes the study of nutrition in college and I am a retired Paramedic of 28 years.

I have always been part of some type of sport since junior high and high school. Basketball, Volleyball, Track. Dance etc. I attended college on a dance scholarship dancing for the Basketball team half time shows then moving on to Professional Ballroom Dance after. I traveled the US competing for 6 + years. Then, yes, I became a mother. Actually a 225 lb mom! I made the decision I would look 21 again no matter the pain and sweat involved. I took up running and with Clint began Triathlons. The next few years we’re full of Triathlons, Marathons obstacle races and Ultramarathons. Including a 50k trail race. I lost my weight, ALL OF IT. And was thin but wanted more tone. Clint gave me a weightlifting routine & proved to me a woman can lift weights and get LEAN and tone. NOT big & bulky. As a Firefighter and a Pro-Women’s Football player, I strive to stay in top physical condition. Nine years ago we found Crossfit. It is the perfect balance of full-body, core strength, endurance and explosive intensity that I need for both of my careers.

I was not active or involved in sports growing up, it wasn’t until my late 30’s sitting behind a desk all day that I recognized the importance of being healthy and active. Being overweight and unhappy with myself I decided to make some changes. I joined a local gym and worked with a trainer on nutrition and exercise. He believed in me, encouraged me and helped guide me on the path to wellness and fitness. Seventy pounds later and much happier inside and out, I am hoping to help inspire others with their fitness and nutrition journey. CrossFit has been a big part of my life for almost 6 years now and I am humbled to be part of this amazing coaching team at Sweat Factory Rockledge. I enjoy working with the Kids program to help encourage them to stay active while teaching proper movements and form. And we can have fun while doing it!
