In 2006 she was introduced to unconventional forms of training methodology done in a warehouse such as Russian Kettlebell , tire flips, weightlifting and gymnastics . Camilla fell in love with the high intensity , functional and unconventional training techniques . She then began training her clients this way and She realized how efficient it was.  

In 2006 she got certified on Level 1, level 2 and Master Russian Kettlebell training . Camilla discovered  Crossfit and realized that this methodology challenged her  physically and mentally while bringing her back to her back to competitive Martial Arts roots.  She devoted her time and energy to learn  Crossfit so she can coach and challenge her clients the same way she does for herself.

Flavia Melo

Flavia is a passionate coach who has been an athlete and fitness enthusiast all her life. She attended Georgia Southern University on a volleyball scholarship, graduated with a BS in Kinesiology/Exercise Science and received her MS in Exercise Physiology from FAU. She immediately saw the value in the core principles of CrossFit– constantly varied functional movements executed at high intensity.

Prior to CrossFit, Flavia was pro-beach volleyball player in Brazil for 10 years, moved to the US in 2004, and has been succeeding ever since. Crossfit, as Flavia would say, “just makes so much sense. It is everything I have always believed in…having the speed to sprint from A to B and the endurance to run from A to Z, being able to lift things from the ground, challenging our mind and bodies to learn new skills and get uncomfortable if need be in order to reach our fitness goals”

Outside of the box, Flavia is a mom , a beach volleyball addict, and has an infatuation for travel. She loves the intensity and variety Beach Bound CrossFit has to offer–not to mention the awesome community!
