  • How long have you been working out at WCF? Since WCF opened in March 2016, and before at CrossFit 14456.
  • Your favorite movement? Deadlifts
  • Least favorite movement? Turkish Get Ups
  • Your goals moving forward? To work as hard as I can to do the things that I can’t do yet- like pull-ups, box jumps, and walking the length of the gym on my hands. Also, to perfect my movements with the bar, so my lifts can continue to get better.
  • Favorite part about working out at WCF? Being with my boys and Ash, and being a part of a family that goes on a regular basis to workout at WCF. Also, conquering things like lunges…that I couldn’t do when I started and now I can even do with weight. Or a handstand that took me a long time to conquer! Also, I love looking back at what I could lift as a max weight when I started, and now that weight is easy. I also love to watch other people get better…it makes me smile!
  • Advice you would give someone just starting out at WCF? Don’t get frustrated! It takes time to learn how to do everything because there’s so much. And what I like to say is: “If I can do it….then you can do it!” Don’t give up.

What is WCF?

Post WOD at Wine Country FitnessWine Country Fitness is built on the pillars of family, community, and fitness.  We, as owners, are motivated by FAMILY- both our own family and our fitness family. Our inspiration for WCF grew out of the desire to raise our three children Olivia, 6, Tripp, 4, and Baby Willie, in an environment that inspires hard work, camaraderie, and positive relationships…all of which have been fostered by the family of athletes at WCF.

Wine Country Fitness truly is a unique membership opportunity, unlike typical gyms and fitness centers. No headphones. No mirrors. No machines. No judgment. We are a small gym with trainer-led classes and a community-oriented learning environment. We say “small” because it is our intent. WCF will not sacrifice individualized attention for the sake of growth.

Who is WCF for?

  • Wine Country Fitness is for everyone.  Our priority is to create the correct muscle memory for everyday functional movements that involve pulling, pushing, lifting, and bending, to refrain from injury and live a healthier, fuller life.
  • Do you want to gain flexibility?  Lose weight?  Run a 5k?  Keep up with your grandchildren?  Complete a Spartan Race or Tough Mudder? Shovel your driveway? Gain more energy?  WCF caters to and empowers every type of athlete.


  • Lake: A pride in the local community of Geneva, and nearby Seneca Lake: right in the heart of Finger Lakes Wine Country!
  • Love: Finding inspiration, motivation, and purpose in your fellow athletes and coaches.  There is also an element of self-love in prioritizing fitness, recovery, mobility, and clean eating.
  • Lift: Develop proper movements and techniques through weightlifting, gymnastics, and conditioning.
