Box: CrossFit Opus (Ontario)

Nominated by: Francesca Ricci

Nomination Testimonial: “In addition to being a top 10 Masters athlete, Denise is a coach to athletes in powerlifting, hockey, Brazilian jiu-jitsu, rugby, running and triathlons. Denise has an ability to design and adapt countless functional workouts that make sense for each athlete’s goals and abilities. Denise opened her own box in July 2013 and as a testament to her coaching abilities and style, nearly 70 athletes transferred from her previous box to become members of CrossFit Opus. I tried CrossFit because I wanted to add strength training to my daily cardio workouts and to improve my race times. I must admit that I was intimidated at first, but Denise made me feel at ease with her tough, yet caring demeanour and her emphasis on form and safety.  In early 2013, I informed Denise that I was changing my focus from strictly running to triathlons, and a few months later, I registered for a half Ironman and an Ironman.  Although I had some doubts about my latest endeavor, Denise believed in me and my abilities and spent the year leading up to the races designing programs to make me stronger and to prevent my body from falling apart through the grueling endurance training.  In June 2014, I achieved my goal and completed Ironman Austria.  Not only is Denise a tireless worker, who often arrives at the gym by 5am and stays until 8pm, she cares about giving back to the community through fundraisers for Special Olympics, National Service Dogs and the Hamilton General Hospital.”
