Back to the Beginning
CrossFit Grinder was founded by Brad McLeod, a former Navy SEAL. Coach McLeod is also SEALFIT certified coach, one of only a handful of coaches with this certification in the country.
The history of CrossFit Grinder, according to Coach Brad:
CrossFit Grinder has very humble beginnings. In 2010 I started out by sweeping the floors at another local CrossFit gym. Later that year, I coached a few athletes at a local track on Saturdays. In 2011, I got my CrossFit Level 1 certification and coached athletes out of my garage.
In 2012, we moved into a small 900 sq. ft. retail space, and CrossFit Grinder first opened its doors. In 2013, we doubled in size to the current 2,000 sq. ft. facility and tripled in membership. Brad retired to sunny Florida in 2014, and his cousin along with some of the original Grinders are carrying on his vision of helping ourselves and others lead a healthier and happier lifestyle.
