Joe Tepe

Coach Bio: When Joseph moved to Las Vegas, he discovered crossfit through a friend’s recommendation. He began attending classes regularly and became hooked. He currently has a level 2 crossfit trainer certification and aims to pursue level 3 and 4 certifications as a gym owner in the near future. He hopes to see more individuals fall in love with crossfit as he has and aspires to show others that weight loss is possible.

He believes that surrounding yourself with a positive and motivating community is the key to a healthy lifestyle. Through The Strip Crossfit, Joe continues to teach other about Crossfit and encourage members with their own health and fitness goals.

Kandice Ruckle

Coach Bio: I grew up in a small town in Arizona, I moved to Henderson in 2017 with my husband and 2 kids.
I grew up doing competitive gymnastics and dance so from a young age I was very active. I think thats one of the biggest reasons crossfit has stuck with my lifestyle, the challenges of pushing yourself in a positive environment and seeing results in balance, strength and overall performance as an athlete. I currently hold a level 2 crossfit training certification and have been coaching crossfit since 2014.

I really love getting to help people reach their goals and educate them on a healthier life style. Watching them week after week improve and do things they came in saying they would never be able to do. It’s very rewarding.

Meredith Martelle

Coach Bio: Meredith began taking Crossfit classes when she realized working out on her own just wasn’t cutting it. As a competitive swimmer throughout her life, she enjoyed being around a community and team atmosphere; which she found again in Crossfit. Helping others achieve goals, pushing through workouts together and accomplishing new feats are a few of her favorite things about coaching fellow Crossfitters.

Stephanie Sawicki

Coach bio: Hey I’m Steph! Im from Wisconsin but moved to Las Vegas to go to UNLV where I got my bachelors degree in Kinesiology. I’m very passionate about health and fitness and I’ve always been a very active person. I played sports my whole life, with my main focus being Track & Field which I did all throughout high school and college. When I was done with college sports I didn’t really know what to do with myself. That’s when I found CrossFit and I was hooked right away. It immediately gave me that same “team” feel and competitive drive I’ve always gotten out of sports. I love that every single day is a new challenge, and there is always something you can improve on, both as an athlete and a coach. My favorite part about CrossFit is the community, there’s always a group of people ready to cheer you on and it’s extremely rewarding as a coach to be able to help others push themselves and improve every single day.
