William has always been a sports geek not content to sit and watch. Sports growing up, he ran the gamut; baseball, basketball, football and soccer, lettering in baseball, football and soccer in high school. Refereeing soccer post-high school kept William close to a sport he truly loved! In the military he acted as the PT officer in several units, planning and leading fitness sessions, conducting weigh-ins and providing fitness and nutrition counseling. In high school William's coaches emphasized weightlifting (Olympic weightlifting) and he has carried a love for the pure physicality of moving weights through big ranges of motion ever since. In 2013 William and his wife wife Wendy found CrossFit, and as the story goes, were hooked. Leaving the ‘globo’ gym rat race behind in favor of functional fitness and community was phenomenal. He is now as fit as, if not more than, he was in the military. CrossFit and a good diet equals the fountain of youth! Still not content to sitting by and watching, William obtained his CrossFit Level 1 Trainer certificate in 2016. He has also completed the CrossFit Specialty Course: Masters certificate in 2017 as well as the Online Scaling Course. Each year William makes sure to complete the Online Judges Courses. To round things out he has also completed the Training Think Tank Movement course.

JJ first joined Warrior Pride Fitness in Sept. of 2014, and immediately fell in love with CrossFit. Prior to joining, he was exercising regularly at a local gym, but his workouts quickly became mundane. The search for new options began. Not only did CrossFit offer fun and varied workouts, but it also provided a unique sense of community. Everyone knows and supports one another. When the gym became available for purchase, he quickly jumped at the opportunity to buy it with the Fischer's. JJ is married to Melissa, with whom they have three children; Aydan, Logan, and Lakyn.
