Melinda Metten

Owner

CF - L2

Owner Melinda Metten opened CrossFit Bangor in June 2011 so she could have a place to work out with her friends. Little did she know, her whole life was about to change. CrossFit Bangor’s reputation spread like wildfire, and so did membership at her box.

Melinda does it all, not just at the gym, but in life. Aside from owning a gym, she’s also a firefighter and a boom operator. Her unstoppable drive and work ethic mean she’s not good at hiding her disappointment when she sees other people not living up to their potential. “I can’t stand when people avoid adversity all their life and constantly sell themselves short.”

Yoga Fit Level 1 and 2 Instructor

Michele found CrossFit in 2012 and for most of her adult life I have taught group exercise classes in a wide variety of formats in gyms across the world, and while this has brought her great joy and satisfaction, it wasn’t always a challenge to her physically. After her first CrossFit WOD, she knew I was hooked. Not only was she able to practice a wide variety of skills, she is pushed to her limits on a weekly basis. But the real reason she continues to CrossFit is the community, friendships and support she have found at every box she’s been to around the world, and CF Bangor is no exception. Currently I hold a CF Level 2 certification also teach Yoga at CrossFit Bangor.  Outside the gym doors she is a math professor, Navy wife and proud dog mom.  Michele also loves to cook and believes nutrition should be the foundation to any fitness program.

Precision Nutrition - L1

Nutrition Coach

Paramedic/FF


Started CrossFit in 2011 the year CFB was born.  Karen was a member for three years before becoming a coach in 2014.  She joined CrossFit to become more physically fit, motivated by her new job as a firefighter paramedic she soon found much more at CFB.  Realizing it was more about investing in herself becoming not only stronger physically and mentally but improving her overall health.

Coaching at CrossFit Bangor has allowed her to help others find the strength and potential in themselves.   Her favorite part about CrossFit Bangor is not only the success people find here in fitness, but the amazing support of the community that it has created.   The friends made here are for life.

Favorite lift would have to be the Snatch. A technical lift that is rewarding to watch others succeed at.  

Love being outdoors.  Will move a barbell outside any chance she gets.   Active recovery days are filled with hiking, fishing, hunting, and camping.  She also loves food and loves to cook!!!

Kevin Anderson

CF - L2

Kevin is known at CrossFit Bangor as “The WOD Whisperer.” He got introduced to CrossFit in 2008 when he was at the Maine Criminal Justice Academy and was instantly addicted. He’s always been passionate about fitness, and CrossFit was a perfect fit for him. Kevin says the best thing about coaching is seeing his members’ confidence shoot up when they get closer and closer to reaching their goals.

His favorite quote is: “Most men stop when they begin to tire. Good men go until they think they are going to collapse. But the very best know the mind tires before the body and push themselves further and further beyond all limits. Only when all these limits are shattered can the unattainable be reached.”-Mark Mysynk
