Steve Norris, CrossFit Coach.  Steve started training at CrossFit Hanover in 2016.  It all started because he had a few hours to kill while his daughters did gymnastics; from there it developed into a love of the workouts, community, friendships, and the results.  He earned his CrossFit LVL-1 certificate in 2017 and has been an evening coach since.

As is often the case, once one spouse begins CrossFit.. the other is soon to follow.  Steve’s wife, Faith, has been coming to CrossFit for almost 2 years and absolutely loves it.  They use their fitness to do lots of outdoor activities as a family.  Steve is an avid rucker, and has recently developed a love for running.
