Brandon believes that physical fitness doesn’t just happen by accident, and he loves to see people work for, achieve, and surpass goals that they thought they could never reach. His love of the gym is fueled by seeing the commitment that grows in people that are willing to persevere to become better at life and lifting. Brandon notes: “I love the family atmosphere here. At other places people join a gym…here you join a family!”

Molli Hunter, CFL1

  • Molli completed her Bachelor degree in Elementary Education from Purdue in 2005. She has had the opportunity to teach students in 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th grade, in both Arizona and Indianapolis. Molli is a wife and the mother of three young children. She is blessed to be a stay-at-home-mom but being home full time has its fair share of challenges, which is what lead her to CrossFit.
    Molli was a two-sport athlete all through school and was very active but as time past and life happened she drifted further away from fitness. She became frustrated with herself and her fitness routine after having her three children. This is about the time she discovered CrossFit. It didn’t take long and she was hooked. Five months into CrossFit, Molli decided to take her newfound love of CrossFit to another level and she became CrossFit level 1 certified in January 2014. Now she has the privilege of combining two of her passions, children and CrossFit. Thomas Jefferson wrote, “a strong body makes a strong mind.” We certainly can’t guarantee our children’s success in life, but we can give them an edge by encouraging and modeling for them the practice of regular exercice.

Stacie Volz, CFL1

  • Stacie has lived in and been a part of the community of Franklin since age 2.  She graduated from Purdue in 1997 with a degree in speech pathology and audiology and from Gwinett Techinical College in 2000 with a physical therapist assistant (PTA) degree. She is a wife, and the mother of two young boys. She works full time as a PTA helping rehabilitate elderly patients with vestibular and balance dysfunction.Stacie has competed in one triathlon and has run three marathons for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. One month after her third marathon in San Francisco in 2010, she was humbled by the OnRamp class with Mike. She believed she was already fit, and thought she would “just try CrossFit to get a little toned.” Little did she know how passionate she would become about CrossFit. She quickly went from 3x/week to 6x/week (most weeks) and hasn’t looked back. She loves that the workouts vary every day, are modified to each individual’s needs and abilities, and can be measured to monitor progress.
