Owner and Coach
Andrew is in his 12th year of coaching functional fitness, and has spent the last 10+ years as a co-owner and coach at FitTown.
Ever since he can remember, he had a passion for sports, fitness, and personal development. His sport of choice growing up was baseball, and he earned a scholarship to play Division II baseball at Barry University in North Miami, then was drafted in the 31st round of the 2008 MLB draft by the Boston Red Sox organization.
When he found CrossFit in 2010, it inspired him to dedicate his life to helping people transform their lives through fitness, nutrition, and healthy lifestyle changes. After convincing his Dad and brother Tony to get into CrossFit, the family came together to open the gym in December 2012.
Andrew’s wife Nikki also regularly works out at FitTown in the morning BeachFit classes. They have 2 young boys, and 1 more on the way. Their older son Cooper participates in the gym’s FitKids classes, and both boys can often be found in the supervised childcare room when they are not in school.
Andrew has done an endless amount of certifications over the last decade of coaching, and is one of the few CrossFit Level 3 coaches in the state.
Today, he is most passionate about helping clients live a higher quality of life outside the gym, and helping people maximize their physical, mental, and emotional health beyond the scale or outward appearance.

Co-Owner and Coach
Coach Tony grew up playing sports his entire life. He and Andrew used to gather the neighborhood kids for any and every type of game they could play; baseball, football, roller hockey, frisbee, kickball, basketball, and a bunch of other games they made up. “We joke that we never stopped inviting our friends over to play games. That’s what makes staying fit actually fun, and something you want to do tomorrow and the next day.” Tony graduated from Rollins College in 2006 with a Bachelor of Arts degree with an Economics major. “I never went to school for health and fitness, but always loved learning about it in magazines,” says Tony. “I elected to take one Exercise Physiology class in college and met my wife Shannon there. It’s amazing how one class can change your whole life.” Tony and Shannon have two kids, Dylan (est. 2013) and Arielle (est. 2016). Dylan takes part in our FitKids program that Tony coaches for the 6-12 yr olds. Shannon does a lot of the graphic design you see at FitTown Jupiter, creating our logos and all of our clothing. Tony and Andrew always admired their dad growing up as he coached every team they were on, sometimes together. He still works out with us and crushes it at 75 years young. “Our dad is my biggest inspiration to influence others in a positive way. We are very much introverts like him, but come alive on the playing field, and now the gym. Our dad will always treat people the way he wants to be treated, and leave every person and place better than he found them… lessons I hope to instill in my kids.”

Coach and Manager
Melissa works hard to help people live full and happy lives. “I’m passionate for empowering individuals and helping them achieve goals they never believed would be possible,” She says. “The personal connections you make with people through the process of coaching really makes this job rewarding.” Melissa has been an athlete all her life, moving between sports like swimming, softball, competitive cheerleading, and collegiate rowing at UCF. In regard to becoming a coach at FitTown, she says, “I took the long, windy road.” Her unique story includes years of experience leading and educating about fitness. “I coached competitive cheerleading while I began pursuing a degree in Phys Ed/Coaching… stopped to join the United States Navy where I was in charge of my unit’s physical fitness program. I got out and started teaching boot camp/aerobics at LA Fitness while finishing my degree in education, and finally landed here through my own journey back to my own health.” She has had her own major transformation since beginning here. When Melissa started with us she was 215 lbs. She will proudly tell you she is 160 solid pounds of muscle and doesn’t want to be a pound less. It is why she is most passionate about helping others find their ideal feeling, not weight. When Melissa isn’t coaching, she is busy being a mom to her two boys, which she says usually includes non-stop baseball, surfing, scrubbing stains out of clothes, and lots of Neosporin. For herself? She loves to paint, grow her own veggies, and hunt for sharks teeth.

I have been coaching now for over 10 years in the functional fitness space but my passion for helping people has never been greater. I enjoy each day on the floor and watching people gain strength, endurance, and confidence each time they walk through our doors. Not being an athlete prior I understand the uncertainty of joining a gym, not knowing what to expect. The welcoming atmosphere of my first gym is what made me fall in love and I am determined to replicate that same environment at FitTown Jupiter. Since joining the FitTown team in 2018, I married my best friend (Coach Austin) and we have since had 2 adorable girls. Nolyn age 2, and Blakely age 1. I am so proud to exemplify a life of health and wellness for my children and I hope to inspire others to do the same with their families through well-rounded family friendly nutrition and fitness.
Coach Jack came to FitTown Jupiter in March 2020 to join our team of fitness professionals. He wanted to work with a team that had the same mindset about the importance of health and fitness. He has enjoyed fitness since he was teen but did not start coaching until 2017 when he realized how he could help others along their journey. He subsequently started his career coaching CrossFit classes and doing personal training. His philosophy on fitness is that it is just a tool to make our lives better outside of the gym. It is not a one size fits all; we each have our own goals and restrictions. However, he believes that we are capable of achieving even our biggest goals with the right plan and execution. Fitness can be scary for people new to the gym and people returning after a long time away from it. So, Jack really focuses on providing a fun-centric and welcoming atmosphere in both his classes and personal training session. His ideal client is someone who wants to improve their quality of life and to promote improvement or maintenance of physical capability. Most of his clients are here to get a good workout that doesn’t leave them feeling beat up. He also really enjoys working with athletes to improve their speed, power, agility and mobility to make them perform better in the game and practice.
Josh grew up playing every sport and extracurricular available to him. Raised in a town of 1700 people, he took advantage of every opportunity to get out and experience life that was offered to him. Winning culture was a staple in school, winning a state championship and achieving numerous state wrestling and track appearances. The values of hard work, discipline, and teamwork were instilled early. In addition to sports, Josh nurtured a passion for music and the arts. After high school, he attended college in pursuit of a Music Industry Management degree. While in school Josh began touring regionally, while also playing club rugby and lacrosse. These two themes (sports and music) remain prevalent in Josh’s life today as a coach and musician. After college Josh was given the opportunity to tour the world as a professional drummer. These travels took him to all 48 contiguous states and 13 countries, as well as earning him 3 Gold Records and 7 #1 singles at Rock Radio. This is also what lead him to discover CrossFit in late 2013. After completing his first CrossFit Open in ’14, he immediately re-entered the competitive field, while touring the world. In the next five years, Josh qualified for Regionals in the Central East, obtained his L1, and eventually would leave the band to purchase and run his own gym in Michigan. After a few years off of competitive CrossFit Re-entered the competitive arena in ’22, finishing 4th in the world at the CrossFit Games (35-39 age group). After four years of vacationing to Jupiter for winters, Josh and his wife Jess decided to make the jump to move here full-time. Outside of music and sports, Josh loves to spend time with his wife, cuddle his two doggies (Willie and Sophia), travel, read, and indulge in food and drink. Josh’s favorite part about coaching is forming a connection with clients. “I believe we can learn something from every single person we meet. I hope to always remain a student throughout life.”

I was born and raised in a small beach town in Michigan. I played sports growing up. When I was very little I did swimming and soccer. In high school I played golf and ran cross country. After high school I went to the Art Institute of Chicago where I got my associate degree in Culinary Arts spent most of my 20’s living in the restaurant world climbing my way from prep cook to sous chef to Corporate pastry chef. I didn’t have much free time during this time, so health and fitness took a back seat. In my 30’s I found the love of my life my husband Raúl. I wanted to focus more on me, my health and family. We moved to Jupiter right after we got married in 2018 that’s where I found FitTown and was introduced to functional fitness. I fell in love and was obsessed. I started to change my mind set and had a crazy thought that one day I’ll be a coach at FitTown. In 2021 I had our beautiful baby girl Cora who is my whole world and want to be the best mom for her. We enjoy going to the park and zoo’s pretty much anything that has to do with animals and being outside is where you can find us in our free time.
Coach Juan, originally from Venezuela, grew up exploring several sports since he was 5 years old, starting with Baseball and Swimming, and some others during his youth (karate, tennis, soccer, basketball, volleyball, etc.), but swimming was the one that grabbed him on. A swimmer for more than 11 years and competing at a national level as member of his state team for several years. After retired from his swimming career and while studying engineering, he started to play Ultimate Frisbee representing his university in several tournaments. In 2002 he was member of the ultimate frisbee national team who competed in the World Ultimate Club Championship hosted in Hawaii, USA. In 2004 he was part of the organizing committee of the World Ultimate Championships hosted in Finland, and the same year he was invited to play with a team representing the East-West Indies countries in the 1st World Beach Ultimate Championship hosted in Portugal. In March 2012, 8 months after moving to Florida due to work, Juan started his journey in cross functional fitness at a local CrossFit box (without knowing he was doing CrossFit for more than one year). Juan joined Fittown in May 2015 and since then he has been part of our community with a 2 ½ years absence (not from fitness) due to a job deployment abroad to The Netherlands. Juan is married with Johanna (also a member of Fittown Jupiter) and is a father of two (Juan Jose, 15 years old & Anna, 8 years old); with almost 11 years of CrossFit experience including 3 months training at CrossFit Yas in the UAE coached by Elliott Simmonds and Jaimie Greene (both CrossFit Game Athletes individual and teams), Juan decided to step up and start his journey as a passionate coach and share his knowledge with the community while he is still learning the art of being an integral fitness coach.
