Herman Phillips in  Alexandria - Trident CrossFit

Herman Phillips

I’m a PROUD native Washingtonian. A career Navy guy, I retired in ’11. I never thought of myself as “athletic” but I did play high school and intramural college sports. I first heard about CrossFit in 2009. I knew a couple of colleagues that were into it but “knew it wasn’t for me.” (WRONG). Fast forward to 2012; I needed to do something because I got tired of avoiding mirrors in my own house. I have hooked been since my baseline. I was honored to be asked to join the coaching staff at Trident. Watching people improve and feel better about themselves, and knowing I had even a small part in that, is the “juice” to me. Coaching has given me the ability to give back to the community and box that had given so much to me.

Trident CrossFit is so much more than a gym, a WOD, etc. It is a family. There is no Kool-Aid; just the desire and hard work you’re willing to put into it. The individual decides what CrossFit will be to them and the coaches and community will be there to support and help them to become the best athlete they want to be.

“Ready Ready…3…2…1…GO!” gets me every time.
