Nick is a Level 1 CrossFit Trainer with a degree in athletic training. It was during college that Nick was first introduced to CrossFit. After years of traditional lifting and chronic cardio he often found himself overtrained but still hitting frustrating plateaus. On January 1st, 2010 Nick knew something needed to change. He chose to focus his training solely on CrossFit methods. In April 2010, in the best shape of his life, Nick competed in the CrossFit Sectional Competition placing high enough to go on to the Regional competition. In 2011 Nick competed in the Reebok Open Sectional and scored well enough to place 4th in the Central East Region and 27th worldwide. He advanced to the Reebok Central East Regional competition where he placed 5th. After these strong performances Nick was contacted and sponsored by Reebok. CrossFit had not only become his workout, but his lifestyle. As his passion for this highly effective workout style has grown so has his desire to share it with others. He is eager and enthusiastic to help others reach their potential at Mad City CrossFit.

Jay Roney- Owner/Operator/CFK/CF Football
Growing up Jay always loved sports and being outside. He
played baseball, basketball, soccer, swam competitively; he enjoys camping,
hiking, underwater cave diving and is also a certified SCUBA diving instructor.
With all of these passions and hobbies Jay has always thought that fitness and
being in shape was important. However, when Jay became a father being able to
make time for fitness was difficult, and like many fathers and mothers
something had to give. He found himself making poor diet choices and not making
time for exercise, and when he did go to the gym it was the same boring routine.
He’d walk around do some bench presses, then maybe some curls, followed by leg
extensions. An hour later he would walk out thinking he at least did something.
Then he was introduced to CrossFIt. He soon realized that he had been wasting
time at the gym. Jay was able to complete a CrossFit workout in a fraction of
the time, and at the end walk out not thinking but knowing he had accomplished
something and it was time well spent. Jay loves CrossFit for many reasons just
a few are: first the fact that his wife and three children all participate in
CrossFit; secondly that every workout is scaleable to each persons individual
abilities, and thirdly the community and culture that is CrossFit. He enjoys
the fact that everybody at Mad City CrossFit knows each other, cheers each
other on to finish and not to give up. He says "that camaraderie is just something you don’t find at
other gyms, we have it here, and that's why this place is awesome!"
