Jordan graduated from West Chester University in the Fall of 2006 with a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology and was a four year All-American swimmer. Jordan was a member of the Sea Isle City Beach Patrol for seven summers. Jordan has always tried to stay fit his whole life, but his view of fitness changed forever when Ian Hardin (owner of Hardbat CrossFit) introduced him to CrossFit in the Fall of 2010.

Jordan coached at CrossFit Pottstown for over a year and learned a lot from the experience. He then decided that he had to follow his dream of opening up his own “box” or gym. Jordan’s passion and enthusiasm for CrossFit is evident while training his athletes. He strives to get the most out of each athlete and for them to reach their highest fitness potential. Jordan’s unique way of programming makes each workout both challenging and fun.

Tighe Crovetti (Coach)

  • CrossFit Level 1 Cert was obtained in January of 2015

Tighe grew up in southern New Jersey playing all kinds of sports but narrowed his focus down to baseball and football from high school into college. Tighe graduated in 1995 from Davidson College with a B.S. in Mathematics but struggled throughout the ensuing years to find a fitness regimen that was equally challenging, fun and effective. Right around the time he discovered a competitive men’s baseball league in 2013, he also began to learn about Crossfit. At first thinking it would just be a good training method to allow him to stay fit and continue to improve in his other activities, like baseball and golf, Crossfit quickly became his preferred sport. Tighe obtained his Crossfit Level 1 certification in January of 2015.
