Success Stories
At the end of the challenge I was thrilled to have my family member comment on my new phasic saying, “You look just like you did in high school”. Score! Special thanks to Coach Zee for his guidance and my fellow Turduckens for all the support! ’

Before finding Cave CrossFit, I felt lethargic all around--physically and mentally. I had a lot of trouble motivating myself to meet the goals I set for myself--eating healthier, drinking less alcohol (a lot less alcohol) and getting to my peak level of physical fitness. After joining Cave CrossFit, I found my life changing at an exponential rate. ’

I guess sometimes it helps to have an obsessive-compulsive personality type. Only now I’ve been putting similar time and effort into staying fit as I used to put into being lazy. During the BABY challenge, in addition to ramping up my WODs to 4-5 times [...]

Nikki Coletta

Nikki has always had a love for sports and competition. Even as young child she would play and watch sports as much as she could; however, it was not an easy road to play them as by the age of 10 she had 3 open heart surgeries and suffered significant hearing loss (thank god for much advanced technology on hearing aids J). Knowing how fortunate she is as a survivor, she realizes how lucky she is to just be in the arena, win or lose. Throughout her life she has played soccer, trained and competed in Kung Fu for 8 years, even going to China twice for extensive training. She is an avid runner who has completed several races, including a Marathon. Nikki found CrossFit almost 4 years ago when she moved out west from Washington DC to pursue a Visual Effects career. She has been a dedicated athlete and competitor ever since. While she still has a profound love of the arts and continues to paint, draw and sculpt any chance she gets, CrossFit is her passion that has given her wings, and there has been nothing more rewarding than to be a part of such an amazing community. Coaching is a way for her to give back to the CrossFit family she has gotten so much from. She wants to show people there is an athlete in all of us. By beating the odds herself, she knows that no matter what obstacles stand in your way, they can be broken through! Nikki is CrossFit Level 1 Certified, CrossFit Gymnastics Certified, CrossFit Olympic Lifting Certified, CrossFit Power Lifting Certified and has an Olympic Lifting Certificate from Charles Staley.

Andrew Warwick

Andrew was born and raised in Visalia, CA and has been playing sports since he can remember. He started getting really into weight training and working out consistently when he was 13 years old. At age 19 Andrew moved to San Diego to play football and to earn his degree in Kinesiology as well as personal training certifications from ISSA and NSCA. After college he was a personal trainer and Boxing coach at San Diego's premiere boxing club. He also participated in Jiu Jitsu tournaments to help stay conditioned and fuel his competitive nature.

Wanting a change in his life Andrew moved to Los Angeles in January of 2012 and was immediately introduced to CrossFit by one of his friends. From there he earned his Level 1 CrossFit Trainer certificate and has never looked back! Andrew loves CrossFit because it gives you that same feeling as you get when you compete in sports. Besides that, it is always challenging, and no matter how good you think you are, you can always be so much better. He has personally changed so much because of CrossFit and the change that he has seen in so many other people is unexplainable. He has always had a passion for fitness and helping others, and he hopes to do this through CrossFit for the rest of his life.
