Chelsea Modugno

Gym Manager & Coach - CF L2

Chelsea started CrossFit about 5 years ago while living in North Carolina and knew right away she wanted to coach. “My life has been better because of CrossFit. I wanted to help make others’ lives better through CrossFit. I love the technicality of it all and being able to break down movements to help members better understand not just what they are doing, but why they are doing it.”

Kevin Gerdom

Coach - CF L1

Kevin has been doing CrossFit for over 5 years at Iron Force Fitness. His favorite movement is the power clean. Kevin enjoys competing in local competitions, most recently at the MACC Fest. "CrossFit changed my life. I found my way to Iron Force after I got sober, and it's helped me both physically and mentally. I have found nothing more challenging yet rewarding that I enjoy so much. It's a great atmosphere and a community of friends that are second to none."

Drew Mercaldo

Coach - CF L1

Drew has been doing CrossFit at Iron Force Fitness for almost 4 years. His favorite movement is handstand push-ups. “I’ve been in the Marine Corps and CrossFit is physically harder. I used to believe working out could never truly be fun until I started CrossFit.”

Braxton Vogdes

Coach - CF L1

Braxton is one of our newest coaches here at IFF. After leaving the Navy, he focused on bodybuilding and calisthenics, but knew he wanted more. "I was attracted to the wide variety of different movements in CrossFit and the intensity at which they are done." Braxton's favorite movement is the muscle up.
