Growing up in Colorado, Anna Kraeutler always had a love of fitness and the outdoors. As a child she participated in numerous sports, and later became a competitive runner winning 5-15k runs around the state. In 2011 while training for a high mileage race, she became bored with running day in and day out and began to look for a cross training program. After several trials and errors, she found CrossFit and was hooked.
After college Anna found her way into the event planning industry while maintaining her love of both running and CrossFit. Eventually professional and personal passions combined and she became the manager of a high-end strength and conditioning studio in Colorado. It was there that she learned to grow her skills as both an athlete and young professional.
After her husband’s career moved their family to New Jersey, Anna tried several CrossFit gyms in the area, but nothing compared to CrossFit Cedar Grove and she’s thrilled to once again be able to commingle her personal and professional passions into one job.
A New Jersey native, Mandy has always enjoyed being active and was a dancer for 14 years. She was introduced to the gym in Graduate School studying for her Masters in Counseling. Her cousin convinced her to join the newest gym in town and she began lifting weights, running, and getting involved in all different types of fitness programs involving plyometrics, metabolic work, spin, TRX, kettlebells, to name a few! Mandy began competing in figure competitions, and she eventually followed her heart and became certified as a NASM Certified Personal Trainer in order to help others reach their goals. Mandy felt her mental health background would really compliment her job in physical health. When she wanted to take her training to another level, Mandy became a CrossFit Coach. Her life was positively affected and changed through CrossFit and she feels there is nothing more rewarding than helping others do the same. Fitness is Mandy's passion and she hopes to help her clients and members of her classes get healthier, stronger, and better at everything they do!

Before starting CrossFit 6 years ago Bridget was not very athletic. She began running during a stressful time in her life and trained for and completed the New Jersey Marathon in 2010 and the New Jersey half marathon in 2011, 2012 and 2013. Although running provided a mental escape she felt something was missing. She purchased a groupon for Crossfit with Coach Annie in 2012 and fell in love with it. In 2017 Bridget earned her CrossFit level 1 certification and began to coach. Although she still enjoys CrossFit her true passion has become Olympic lifting. She began to focus on this earlier in the year and earned a gold medal at a meet in May. She plans to continue training and become certified by the USAW to help others achieve their goals.
As a physical education teacher, Brian has always felt that it is important to practice what he preaches. Setting a good example for the students was of the utmost importance. Two years into his teaching career, it became more and more difficult to stay fit. Doing the same exercises week after week became very mundane, and to make matters worse there was little to no progress being made.
One day Brian happened to be watching ESPN. There was a competition going on called “The CrossFit Games”. He was immediately intrigued. As luck would have it, an acquaintance opened a functional fitness facility, which included CrossFit classes. Brian knew that he had to try it for himself--and was immediately hooked! In the first four weeks, Brian made more progress than the previous four years. His favorite part was sharing this journey with the other members.
In 2013 Brian earned his Level 1. He began coaching soon after and has never looked back. Brian considers it a privilege to share in people’s fitness journeys and greatly enjoys helping them reach their fitness goals.
