Mari Delre

Owner + head Coach + nutrition coach | CrossFit l2, CrossFit Kids, Personal Training Cert, Pilates Cert

How long have you been doing Crossfit?
Since 2014

What made you want to try CrossFit /what got you into CrossFit?
I was interested in getting my personal training certification and thought what a better way than to jump in and get trained by somebody else first.

What made you fall in love with crossfit? What do you love most about crossfit?
The gymnastics and skills aspect. As well as the socializing. As an ex gymnast it was so much fun to once again have the opportunity to do some gymnastics work and also be challenged with learning new skills on a regular basis. All whilst having a great time with some incredible people. It’s much more fun to suffer together. It definitely bonds you together.

How long have you been a CrossFit coach?
5 years

What do you love most about coaching at Presidential Range CrossFit?
I love having the opportunity to really invest in people and become a part of their journey. It is so rewarding to see people achieve things they never dreamed possible.

What are your fitness credentials?
Personal trainer
Pilatus instructor
Crosffit L1
Crossfit L2
Kids Crossfit
Nutrition coach
Currently finishing another nutrition certification (nutrition is a big passion for me)
CrossFit Open Quarter Finalist

What other interests /hobbies do you have?
I am loving all kinds of biking. Mountain, gravel and road. I married a biker and it was kind of inevitable. Traveling the world. Meeting new people. Snowboarding with my kids, even though I can’t even come close to keeping up. I also love painting if I ever have a free moment

What are some of your fitness goals and/or achievements?
One of the coolest things I had the opportunity to do was to represent South Africa (my country of origin) in the 10th World gymnastrade in Berlin. This year my focus is mostly on being the best biker I can be. I am entered in a few races and look forward to seeing how far I can push myself on a bike. I love training along side my husband. We love traveling and riding our bikes wherever we go! I def have some CrossFit goals also, and look forward to participating in some more local competitions when the opportunity presents itself. During the 2020 CrossFit Open I reached a big personal goal of mine and finished top 10 in Africa. CrossFit will always be a constant in my life. Even if it is not always my main focus, it is the absolute best way to become a well rounded athlete and learn what it means to push yourself to your limits.

Any words of wisdom?
Health and fitness is a life long journey. You will never “arrive” So relax, ENJOY THE JOURNEY!. It is about being persistent and consistent. Progress, not perfection. Whether you think you can, or you can’t. You are right.

Why should somebody become a member at Presidential Range CrossFit?
No matter what your goals are. Whether you want to just lose weight and get in shape. Whether you are training for a race or event of some kind. Or whether you are looking for an outlet to blow off some steam with other like minded people. We have it all. We are passionate about helping people become the best version of themselves. Helping them achieve their goals,(or even help set some goals) no matter what they may be. All while having fun amongst a great group of people. It is fitness, but also very much a family.

Tim Clough

Coach | CrossFit l1

How long have you been doing Crossfit?
I started doing Crossfit roughly 6 years ago

What made you want to try CrossFit /what got you into CrossFit?
Needed some structure to my daily workout routine. It was too easy to not workout when no one else was holding me accountable.

The social aspect is easily the best part for me. I love being able to challenge myself with other athletes that are often MUCH younger than me.

That’s an easy one – the people!

My goals are pretty simple. Just be better this year than I was last. I completed the Leadville stage race in under 10 hours and have completed multiple Spartan races

Any words of wisdom?
I always ask my classes “Why do we do this?” The answer is because we can. We are extremely fortunate to be able to do the things we do. Whether we are scaling or competing at the highest level we are all fortunate to have Crossfit in our lives.

Why should somebody become a member at Presidential Range CrossFit?
Why not? Give it a shot. You have nothing to lose and you will most likely leave with a bunch of new friends and increased fitness.

Meg Kennedy

Coach | CrossFit l1

How long have you been doing Crossfit?
Since 2014

What made you want to try CrossFit /what got you into CrossFit?
I had just given birth to my second child and was feeling stuck in a squishy, unmotivated body that I didn't recognize after a lifetime of athletics. I watched a mom-friend of mine completely transform her body and energy levels after just 6 weeks of CrossFit and clean eating so decided I had nothing to lose and everything to gain from finally giving it a try.

What made you fall in love with crossfit? What do you love most about crossfit?
I was instantly hooked by the inclusive, almost party-like atmosphere of every class. The motivation just hits you when you walk into the door and everyone's happy to be together, the coach has the workout ready for you, and the music is playing. I get so much satisfaction out of how hard I push my mind and body in our training and I've never been so happy and confident in my own skin. I'm proud of what my body is capable of and how strong and healthy it looks.

How long have you been a CrossFit coach?
Since 2018

What do you love most about coaching at Presidential Range CrossFit?
I love SO MUCH about coaching at Presidential Range CrossFit but if I have to pick just one, it's the constant opportunities it gives me to call out the GOLD in people.

What are your fitness credentials?
Level 1 CrossFit Training Certificate

What other interests /hobbies do you have?
I love skiing and snowboarding, mountain biking, taking my oldest daughter shopping and chilling by my pool with friends.

What are some of your fitness goals and/or achievements?
In 2004 I cycled across Canada with my Dad. That was a pretty big deal to us. I'm currently working on earning my spot in the list of top 100 athletes in Canada (my country of origin) in my age and gender category of the CrossFit Open. I'm also enjoying working hard at learning and perfecting new gymnastic skills that I never imagined I'd have the ability to do.

Any words of wisdom?
Take your thoughts captive when it comes to your self-talk.

Why should somebody become a member at Presidential Range CrossFit?
So many reasons! The obvious is our awesome location and how well-equipped our gym is with such a huge variety of well looked-after top-of-the-line equipment. More importantly, though, is that the fire behind what we do for our community is love. Love will always have the most powerful impact on people's lives.

Carly Warland

Coach | CrossFit L1, Olympic Weightlifting


How long have you been doing CrossFit?
Since February of 2019

What made you want to try CrossFit /what got you into CrossFit?
My husband and I moved to the area and I was looking for a gym where I could lift. My background is in Olympic weightlifting so I needed barbells and weight, those are hard to come by in the North Country so a CrossFit gym was my best option.

What made you fall in love with CrossFit? What do you love most about CrossFit?
Before I joined CrossFit I definitely had an elitist mentality (:-P thanks to Oly lifting!), thinking CrossFit was more hype and actually any good. I begrudgingly tried a class, just so I could say how it wasn't that great...well before my first class was even over I was imagining what the next one would be like, I was ABSOLUTELY hooked!

How long have you been a CrossFit coach?
I have been a Crossfit coach since early 2020.

What do you love most about coaching at Presidential Range CrossFit?
I find it incredibly rewarding when I'm able to play a role in someone achieving a goal or simply just giving their best effort that day in class. I'm defintely one of those coaches who is going to push you and make you earn that hour, regardless of what your capability level is!

What are your fitness credentials?
Level 1 CrossFit Training Certificate.

What other interests /hobbies do you have?
I'm a big fan of food, eating it...making it...watching it be made. I also love to Travel, a lot of my family are spread out within the world so it's important to me that I get to see them frequently while also seeing parts of this amazing planet.

What are some of your fitness goals and/or achievements?
I would like to qualify for a national weightlifting meet at some point during my weightlifting career. I would also like to qualify for what would be equivalent to the previous regionals scene for CrossFit. Representing my country, New Zealand, would be an incredible goal/dream - perhaps at a masters level I can get there. I also have some specific, quantifiable goals such as snatch 80kg, Clean and Jerk 100kg, run a sub 8 min mile, squat 350+, butterfly pullup consistently, and perform multiple muscles ups consistently. From a long term perspective, being pain free and mobile is my goal - I want to be able to be active my entire life, CrossFit will help me achieve that and I think that's amazing.

Any words of wisdom?
Never let the fear of failure stop you from attempting to succeed. In the words of Cardi B, if you get knocked down 9 times...stand up 10.

Why should somebody become a member at Presidential Range CrossFit?
There's more to the Presidential Range CrossFit community than simply 'getting fit', it's about creating a foundation for your life outside the gym that will help you THRIVE. We are more than gym folk...we are parents, executives, small business owners, doctors and nurses, builders and so much more...we also just happen to freakin' LOVE this place. We have a feeling, you will too!

Jill Paquette

Coach | CrossFit L1


How long have you been doing CrossFit?
I first joined CrossFit in early 2016. I fell in love the sport immediately.

What made you want to try CrossFit /what got you into CrossFit?
I was raised in a family that embraced sport and healthy competition. After college I joined a local gym where I was introduced to group fitness as well as both power and Olympic lifting. After a few years I felt like I hit a plateau and after having been following Games athletes on social media I decided to give CrossFit a try and never looked back!

What made you fall in love with CrossFit? What do you love most about CrossFit?
My favorite thing about Crossfit is personal growth. There is no ceiling in Crossfit. You can always work toward being faster, more efficient, and stronger in many different modalities. Not only do I love witnessing my own growth but that of my peers, it is motivating.

How long have you been a CrossFit coach?
I have my L1 and have been coaching since July of 2020, I am loving every minute of it.

What do you love most about coaching at Presidential Range CrossFit?
The community and work ethic of our athletes.

What are your fitness credentials?
Level 1 CrossFit Training Certificate.

What other interests /hobbies do you have?
During the day time hours, you can find me in the operating room. Being an RN is one of my greatest passions. Most importantly I LOVE spending time with my two daughters.

What are some of your fitness goals and/or achievements?
Currently I am working on improving hand stand walks. My long-term goal is to live an active healthy life.

Any words of wisdom?
I have always struggled with nutrition, when I feel I am struggling with healthy food choices I remind myself of the 80.20 rule. Eat nutritious foods 80% of the time and don’t be afraid of having a serving of your favorite treat 20 % of the time.

Why should somebody become a member at Presidential Range CrossFit?
We have a great community that is supportive and welcoming to individuals new to functional fitness or those that are seasoned. We are here to help you reach your goals, whether they are weight loss related, nutritional advice, or if you are looking to perform better and get stronger! We can help you get to where you want to be and provide you with the tools to sustain it.

Travis Greenlaw

Coach | CrossFit L1


How long have you been doing CrossFit?
I have been doing Crossfit for about 5 years now.

What made you want to try CrossFit /what got you into CrossFit?
Back in 2016 is when I really started my fitness journey and had a goal of losing 50+ pounds. I started by just doing some running and lifting weights, but always had trouble finding consistency with those things and started to plateau. I heard about Crossfit online somewhere and decided to give it a try. Ultimately, Crossfit is what stuck for me and helped me to lose over 70 pounds!

What made you fall in love with CrossFit? What do you love most about CrossFit?
Without a doubt it is the community. Not only just having people there to support you day in and day out, but also the competitive aspect. I love to compete and being able to do so in a healthy way, every day, is something that was missing in my life.

How long have you been a CrossFit coach?
I have been a Crossfit coach since December of 2020!

What do you love most about coaching at Presidential Range CrossFit?
I love seeing people achieve their goals. The amazing thing is you get to experience this every day at the box. That’s one of my favorite things about Crossfit… there is always something else to strive for. It’s great to see someone hit that weight loss goal they’ve been chasing for years, but what I really love is seeing that person set their next goal and achieving that. Whether it is nailing a muscle up, or hitting that 200 pound clean, there is always something else to shoot for.

What are your fitness credentials?
Level 1 CrossFit Training Certificate.

What other interests /hobbies do you have?
I love the outdoors. My wife and I try to spend as much time as we can outside. Our favorite activities are mountain biking and skiing with our dog Riley.

What are some of your fitness goals and/or achievements?
I have set some goals for 2021, some broad and some more focused. My number one goal is to find consistency especially in my nutrition. I have a tendency to have big ups and downs when it comes to fueling my body. In 2021 I want to maintain my weight within 5 pounds of where I started the year. I feel great heading into 2021 and want to leave 2021 feeling this way too.

Any words of wisdom?
Find what works for you! There are so many different workout programs and fad diets out there that it can be hard to narrow down the best option for you. Try everything. Try eating Paleo, Zone and Keto. Try different workout programs (especially CrossFit!). You won’t know what works for you if you don’t try different things. The important thing is longevity, so find something you can incorporate you’re your lifestyle!

Why should somebody become a member at Presidential Range CrossFit?
To start, I am a firm believer that CrossFit can be for ANYONE. That’s the beauty of it. ANYONE can modify it to make it work for their needs. The ideology being CrossFit is “Constantly varied, functional movements performed at high intensity”. From there it can be whatever you want it to be. Here at PRCF, we have the BEST community. From my fellow coaches to the members it truly is a family. When I started CrossFit 5 years ago I never imagined that I would meet the incredibly people I did. These people are now lifelong friends and to me that is the best part!
