CF TOTF Legends

The TOTF Legends page is where we pay homage to some of our more influential coaches who have moved on from the program.  These individuals were instrumental in making TOTF a reality, continuing the success of TOTF and giving of their time, effort and expertise to the program to make all of the other members great.  Without their contributions we would not have the program we have today.

I am from the greatest place Alabama has to offer Auburn. WAR EAGLE !!!
Grew up in Alabama for most of my life. I love to have fun while doing anything that is worth doing including when times get rough during a workout squeezing out a smile or joke every now and again. I don’t take things super seriously but I am completely committed to giving all the athletes the best coaching possible.

I started crossfit in late 2011 after watching my first Crossfit Games on ESPN. A few weeks later I had a friend who had recently completed their Level 1 show me some of the basic movements of crossfit. I cut my hand doing an overhead squat in a power rack with only 65 pounds on the bar which is a relatively light weight for me. From then I wanted to do what I could to better execute all things crossfit. A journey that I am happy to continue everyday. 

Favorite WOD: Elizabeth and Grace (why chose when you can do both) 
Certificates: Crossfit Level 1 and Crossfit Level 2
Goals: Complete my USAW certification, Crossfit Endurance certification, and Gymnastic certifications. Have Chick Fil A be my sponsor for going to the Crossfit Games one day. Also to not hate body weight movements every time I see them. Lol

Coach Carly Costello

Occupation: USAF, Public Affairs Officer 

TOTF Status:Veteran

Family: Husband Greg 

I am from Marietta, Georgia, born and raised, but my father was born in Omaha and raised in Kansas, so it’s nice to be in the fatherland.  

I started CrossFit two years ago with a box in my hometown. I had been working with a personal trainer for a couple years prior to starting CrossFit, but I never saw or felt the results I wanted. My best friend convinced me to join her box and within a month of starting CrossFit, I felt and looked stronger. I know what CrossFit has done for me so I am here to preach and teach it to others looking to improve themselves. Plus I just like picking up heavy things and putting them down.  

Favorite WOD:  Grace and anything with snatches  

Certificates:  CrossFit Level 1 trainer, USAW Olympic Weightlifting Level 1 trainer 

Goals: In the next year, plan to accomplish my first muscle-up, PR more than 200 pounds on squats and snatch more than 120 pounds. 2015 Regionals better watch out!

I am from Johnstown, NY, but have been all around the world with the Navy.

I started CrossFit in 2009.  I rolled to shore duty in the worst shape of my life.  I quickly plateaued working out on my own, then a friend introduced me to CrossFit.  Almost immediately, I started getting leaner, stronger and faster.  I coach to help others experience similar life changes.  The combination of community and constantly varied exercise make it an unbeatable experience.

Coach Thatcher Cardon

Occupation: USAF, Family Physician

TOTF Status: Veteran

Family: Wife and 5 kids

I am from all over but Seattle is about as close to hometown as I get.

I love learning new things and working with my hands.

I started CrossFit in 2008 and loved it from day one. For many years it was a hobby and a fitness routine. Now it is a comfortable habit. I always knew I wasn’t as well rounded or functionally fit as I wanted to be but I didn’t know how to get there. CrossFit did it for me. It was like a radioactive spider bite. It has changed me in many ways and made me a better physician.

Favorite WOD: There’s no favorite that’s what I like about “constantly varied”.

Certificates: CrossFit Level 1 trainer

Goals: General Physical Preparedness for life.
