           Shannon Duff - CrossFit Coach

Shannon started CrossFit in January 2013. She has always been an athlete playing softball and running track through high school, and then continuing with her fitness by running short distance races, half marathons, marathons, triathlons and weight lifting.  Then she discovered CrossFit. The constantly changing workouts and competitive nature of the sport got her hooked. She has competed in many local competitions around the area and loves working to improve her lifts and level of fitness. Her daughters have also reaped the benefits of CrossFit Gloucester’s CrossFit Kids Program. This love for CrossFit and seeing how it has changed her life is what led her to her to become a Level 1 Trainer in May 2016. She loves working out and motivating others to get stronger and better every day.
