CrossFit coaches and Sport Performance trainers

The goals of our CrossFit coaches at CrossFit Rock hill are to make everyone who walks through the doors comfortable and confidant enough to acheive a fitness level they may have never thought possible.

BARRETT SHAFT
Owner

Barrett became the new owner of CrossFit Rock Hill in November of 2019.  He took over with a passion for the way CrossFit can impact people’s lives in a positive manner.  With a background in collegiate coaching he also enjoys working with athletes having the goal to play in college. A little on Barrett, he played baseball in college at Western Carolina where he has the 2nd most base-hits of all time for the University. Upon graduating he went on to achieve his Masters Degree in Sport Psychology while being the graduate assistant for the baseball team at UT-Knoxville. Barrett then became the head baseball position coach at Bethune-Cookman University. He is a certified NASM personal trainer as well as a CF L-1 Trainer.  He has aspirations to continue to grow CrossFit Rock Hill , and also wants the gym to serve as an accelerator for high school athletes looking to learn what it takes to achieve a college scholarship and compete at the collegiate level.  

BRITTANY ORR
11 years Gymnastics Coach
“I was first introduced to CrossFit in April of 2012 while employed at a globo gym as a part time personal trainer. As you can imagine, I looked at fitness in a completely different light after my first intro class. Not only have I acquired my CF-L1 and served in the fitness industry for a couple of years, I am also approaching my 10th year of coaching competitive gymnastics. I feel that my extensive knowledge in gymnastics lends well to CrossFit’s training beliefs and I am looking forward to helping people become better, stronger versions of themselves.”

CrossFit Rock Hill Coach Matt Zocco

MATT ZOCCO
Masters Degree in Sports and Fitness Administration.
“I played various sports, baseball, golf, tennis, and basketball throughout my time. In Connecticut, I coached high school tennis and basketball for 6 years where we empathized off-season conditioning. During that time I obtained a Bachelor Degree in Exercise Science.

When I moved to SC to attend Winthrop University for my Masters Degree in Sports and Fitness Administration, I wanted to find that sense of community I remembered from playing sports. And I did when I found CrossFit Rock Hill. CrossFit has pushed me outside my comfort zone and helped me grow not only as an athlete but also as an individual.”
