Matt is a native of Tennessee but has zig-zagged all over the map with the military.  He was a NCAA D-1 baseball player, and has several years of experience training functional fitness through the military.

“I was first introduced to CrossFit in 2009 by other former college athletes looking to maintain a high-level of fitness and train in a competitive environment.  I knew I wouldn’t be able to train any other way after I found CrossFit.  The physical and mental strength gained through CrossFit have made a permanent impact on my life”

Julie was born outside of Pittsburgh in Washington, PA.  She graduated from St. Joseph’s University in Philadelphia, where she called home for the last 10 years before moving to Richmond Hill, GA.  With her athletic background in softball and basketball, Julie guarantees to bring her dedication, intensity, and competitive spirit to the gym each day.

“I got my start with CrossFit in 2011 after finally succumbing to the peer pressure from my brother.  I walked into CrossFit Delaware Valley, did my first WOD, finished last, and then emailed the coach the next day saying, ‘I’m in!’ I haven’t looked back since.”

Coach Ted

Ted hails from outside Pensacola, Florida where he graduated from Pace High School.  He served proudly in the US Navy for 9 years. Since leaving the Navy, Ted moved up and down the east coast as an engineer before finally landing in Savannah.  His athletic background began in high school with track, cross-country, and football.  Stricken by his father’s early passing, Ted began a fitness resolution in 2000.  He prioritized fitness and began a running hobby that would take him from distances as short as 1 mile to multiple ultra marathons.  The grueling pace and distances took their toll, and Ted needed a change.  Enter CrossFit High Tide.  He transformed from a stiff, creaky runner to a well-oiled, long-bearded, fire breather.

“I have always enjoyed cheering people on and helping push others through mental and physical barriers, but personally experiencing this ride over the past 2 years drove me to acquire my CrossFit Level 1 certificate and begin helping others along their fitness journey as part of the High Tide Family.”

ADAM SKORANSKI

CrossFit Level 1, CPR/AED CertifiedAdam

Adam was born and raised in Cheyenne, WY, but has lived all over this big, beautiful country of ours the past 14 years. Following an NAIA college baseball career, Adam decided to pursue a master’s degree in Sport Psychology, further developing his fascination with the mindset and mental approach behind exceptional performance. Adam currently works with the Army teaching Sport Psychology and Resilience skills to Soldiers and their families. This rewarding career brought Adam to Savannah from El Paso two and a half years ago, and very shortly after, through the doors of CFHT. Being a Crossfit athlete the past four years has given Adam a glimpse into the mindset of this awesome community, and he loves having the opportunity to watch it unfold from a coach’s perspective as well.

KAITLIN HUTCHINSON

CrossFit Level One, CPR/AED CertifiedKaitlin

Kaitlin is a Savannah-area transplant from Columbus, Ohio.  Her athletic background includes years of gymnastics and competitive cheerleading.  Kaitlin’s continued interest in maintaining a healthy lifestyle led her to CrossFit in 2016.  The high-intentisty workouts with an array of athletic elements appeal to Kaitlin’s philosophy of providing athletes a variety of challenging and invigorating routines.

“I love the sense of community CrossFit offers.  It is amazing to watch athletes at different levels from all different backgrounds come together to kill a workout.”

MEGAN HOLLY

Coach Megan

 

 

Megan was born on Long Island, New York and moved to Atlanta as a teenager.  She is a graduate of Georgia Southern University where she earned a degree in Journalism.  She moved to Richmond Hill in 2017 where she runs her own public affairs agency and focus on fitness and a healthy lifestyle for herself and her daughter.  With five years of CrossFit experience, Megan gained confidence she never knew she had, a community she never expected, and friends to last a lifetime.

“CrossFit taught me a lot – not only about the sport of fitness but also about myself. It doesn’t matter if you come in first or last; rather, it’s about the effort you put in.  That effort goes far beyond the four walls of the gym.”

    It was great talking with you today Matt and I look forward to the classes with Juli and yourself. You were very informative. And, I think it is wonderful that you can modify CrossFit for disabled vets! See you CFHT on opening day.
