Spencer grew up an athlete, playing football, basketball and baseball. After suffering a torn ligament in his elbow during his senior year of High School, Spencer’s promising baseball career abruptly ended. It was on his road to recovery that he was first introduced to CrossFit. His father, a former NFL player and college football coach, opened an affiliate, CrossFit Charlotte. Throughout Spencer’s rehab, his father had tried to convince him to give the program a try. After a year of persuasion, Spencer agreed to try his first workout. From that moment on, he was hooked. After about a year of CrossFit, Spencer became interested in the competitive side of the sport and in 2009, Spencer qualified for his first CrossFit Games. 2016 will mark Spencer’s 6th CrossFit Games appearance, qualifying in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2015 & 2016. His best performance was a 5th place finish in 2015.
Erin found CrossFit in 2010, when the partnership between Reebok & CrossFit began. Erin is a full-time employee of Reebok and heard about CrossFit from her colleagues who had tried a workout at Reebok’s very own CrossFit box, Reebok CrossFit One. She grew up playing soccer and lacrosse competitively, but once she graduated college found herself on a search for a new workout regimen. She was open to trying different activities and new workout classes, so decided to give CrossFit a try. After a week of introductory classes, she was hooked and had found her new workout love.
Erin & Spencer met in the fall of 2011 when Spencer moved to Boston to take a coaching position at Reebok CrossFit One. A friendship formed but it wasn’t long before Spencer asked Erin on their first date. 4 years later, Spencer asked Erin to marry him in the exact spot where they had their momentous first date. In August of 2015, they got married.
CrossFit will always be a big part of Erin & Spencer’s life. They are co-owners of Reebok CrossFit Medfield, where Spencer is the head coach, and Erin is a part-time coach. Through coaching they are both able to ‘pay-it-forward’ and share the healthy benefits of CrossFit with their community. They love that they can share much of their CrossFit experience with one another, and even work out together when they can. They will always be each other’s biggest supporters, in and out of the CrossFit box.
