Merrick Kelley has been a member of Redefined for almost 2 ½ years. He always arrives early to class to mentally and physically prepare himself for the workout. Merrick is a great athlete because he is always willing to listen and most importantly, he always gives 100% effort. Where we have seen the most improvement is on his gymnastics, especially his T2B and pullups. But it is his work ethic and tenacity that shows the most. He has a hectic work schedule that keeps him traveling on top of having a wife and kids, but that doesn’t stop him from getting to the gym, even when he’s on the road. Merrick is a model athlete and we are glad to have him as a part of our Redefined family.
Jessica Mercado has made tremendous strides lead a healthier lifestyle and reach personal goals she has set for herself. Each day she takes the step to push forward, no matter the obstacle, and move closer to her goals, even if by an inch.

She has increased her lifts, is down 22% in body fat, gained 32lbs of muscle and lost 64lbs. Congratulations and Job Well Done Jessica!
Brian Cherveny has been at Crossfit Redefined for over a year now and has come a long way. Brian was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes before joining us. In addition to Type 2 Diabetes, he has had multiple injuries to work around and overcome. What makes him successful is his commitment to sticking to our program no matter what the challenge. He is always asking questions and willing to learn. Every class he attends, he comes early to mobilize and prepare his body for the workout of the day. And most importantly, he listens to his body in order to determine where, when and how to scale his workouts. We are very proud to have Brian as a member and athlete at our box.
Josh Brewer is one of our Master's athletes here at CrossFit Redefined and daily proves that age is only a number. Since joining after moving to the area from Tyler, Texas, Josh has worked to increase not only his aerobic capacity but also his gymnastics skill, strength, and overall fitness level. He has his sights set on competing for a spot in the Master's Qualifier in 2019. His consistency in coming to classes and also putting in the extra time to hone his skills and improve his mobility have set him on the path to reach that goal as well as be a great example for all of us that age has nothing to do with limitations in fitness.
Dave Gunn has been a member of Redefined since October 2015. He is one of our Masters athletes and shows you that age is just a number. One thing that makes Dave successful is that he listens to cuing given by a coach and really focuses on perfecting the movement. He is willing to come to class early to work on his weaknesses (mastering double unders will be here before you know it). Dave is a pilot, and that means that his sits for extended periods of time, so he makes fitness a priority even if that means dropping into a box in another city. It is an absolute pleasure to coach Dave and have him as a member of our Redefined family. #realmeasurableresults#redefinedfitness#mastersathlete
Melissa Thomas joined Redefined in May of 2016 after moving to Texas from the Midwest with zero background in weightlifting or CrossFit or knowing anyone living in the area. Since joining, she has found a passion for fitness and has gone on to compete in physique competitions, placing 2nd in her first one! Despite suffering a broken hand which required surgery, Melissa has stayed consistent in working towards her goals and remained patient through weeks of modified workouts, the inability to lift or use her hand, and being limited in movement due to her injury. Since being cleared post-surgery, she continues to be a model for trusting the process and is well on her way to achieving her goal to compete (and place) in larger scale physique competitions. Thank you for being such a positive example of not letting injury or circumstances derail you from achieving the goals you set in place!
Mariama Mele has been a member of Redefined for over a year now and has seen noticeable results and vast improvements in a short amount of time. I must say her hard work and dedication is second to none and does not go unnoticed. Mariama is a wife and mom of 3 boys but that does not stop her from showing up and working hard 4-5 days a week. It has been amazing to watch her face and conquer her fear of the GHD, box jumps and wall walks. She is now staying after class to work on mobility and technique of movements. We are super proud of you and it has been an absolute pleasure to coach you through your fitness journey. Keep up the great work!
