Bryan Reeves: Lead Coach
I had been training at a regular gym for about 2 years before I walked into Unicus Athletics 940. I‘d mostly been passionate about fitness and being healthy, but the franchise gym just became too boring and routine for me. When I tried CrossFit for the first time I was hooked.
I’m a very social person and was drawn to the competitive atmosphere and maybe even more to fellow members. I love coaching people whether they desire to be a competitive athlete or just want to make a change to live a healthier lifestyle.
