Anne Marie Rowe is a L1 Certified CrossFit trainer who strives to empower others to live a healthy lifestyle through coaching group classes, private 1:1 training sessions and nutritional guidance.
Anne Marie began her CrossFit journey at Tower Place Crossfit in January 2014. As someone who has always been very intimidated by anything remotely athletic, she understands why some people are very intimidated to try CrossFit. CrossFit has been the catalyst for greatly increasing her endurance, both mentally and physically. She also understands the weight struggle that people often have. CrossFit has been instrumental in her changing her dietary lifestyle as well.
She is also a life coach and a sports performance mindset coach, which gives her more tools to help clients reach the goals they set for themselves.
When she isn’t at Tower Place CrossFit, she is coaching clients to live a more on purpose life, improve their mindset to perform better under pressure. She is also mom to a busy 8 year old son.
Anne Marie’s other interest include reading or escaping to her family’s mountain cabin.

Melissa began her crossfit journey in August 2013. After years of running 5k’s, half marathons, and playing indoor soccer she decided to change up her daily workout. She was encouraged by her husband to come try a workout and quickly realized this was a better alternative to running. She found that crossfit allows her to accomplish her fitness goals in an hour time span, instead of logging hours of miles.
Melissa grew up playing soccer and karate competitively and found that crossfit gives her that competitive spark back. You can find Melissa competing at local crossfit competitions on the weekend to keep that spark alive.
After 4 years of raising her 4 kids and attending classes on average 4 days a week she decided to get her Crossfit Level 1 Certificate.
When not at TowerPlace Crossfit coaching or training, Melissa is a busy wife and mom. She can been found at the baseball fields cheering on her two boys or at the local cheer gym watching her two girls.
