Introducing the CrossFit Expedition team

Meet the fitness experts that are here to help you achieve your goals

Our founder

Nichole Stiles

After earning her B.S. in Health Education from the University of Cincinnati, Nichole always knew she wanted to help people live their best lives and began exploring her options. After working in the health insurance and medical fields, she quickly realized she would rather help individuals prevent disease than cure it. Being a member of the CrossFit community for several years, she decided to combine her love of fitness with her passion to help others. Nichole now spends her time working hard at becoming the best owner, coach, motivator, and athlete she can be!
