My name is Michael Caldwell and I was born in Bogotá, Colombia in South America. Before first grade, I moved with my family to Lake Placid, Florida where I lived until going away to college. My degree is in Communications, but my passion is for Fitness and Health.

All throughout my childhood, I was overweight. It is not easy for a kid to go through high school being chubby. But I had friends that eventually motivated me to go to the gym with them and exercise. They made it fun for me, and it really did change my life. I went to college 50 lbs lighter and with a whole new outlook on life. I worked as a chef for years in my twenties and that started me down the road to healthy eating. Temporary diets were not for me. I began to realize that in order to keep the weight off, I had to change my way of eating, thinking, and acting. I took supplements to keep me healthy, and I learned over the years how important it is to eat right all the time.

It was also during this time that I was a Weight Loss Consultant and I had the idea to start my own company. With the support of my wife, I opened Body Nutrition in February 2007. I am a certified personal trainer through ISSA and CrossFit Level 1 Certified and my goal is to motivate you to have similar results that I had.

CrossFit BNI Trainer: Beth Caldwell

Beth Caldwell
CrossFit Level 1 Certified
CrossFit Kids Certified
CrossFit Mobility Certified Trainer
CrossFit Gymnastics Certified Trainer
CrossFit Powerlifting Certified Trainer
CrossFit Endurance Certified Trainer
IFA Certified Trainer # 224450

My name is Beth Caldwell, and my life was spent in Grand Rapids, Michigan. I moved to Florida in 2003 and I met Mike in Tampa where we both worked. It is my passion to maintain a healthy lifestyle, and motivate others to do the same.

I played every sport they allowed me to in school. Throughout college, I was always the person who would wake up early in the mornings just to go jogging and if you couldn’t find me at home, I was most likely in the gym. When I moved to sunny Florida, I began to help my friends do workouts in the gym and that motivated me to get my certification from IFA to be a personal trainer. I love to see people get that look of satisfaction on their faces after accomplishing a good workout. I realized that getting my certification from CrossFit would only enhance my ability to motivate others safely and effectively to reach new potentials.

Because I recently had my 2nd baby, I understand the challenges that women have to go through in order to maintain their weight. Nothing is impossible when it comes to health. By maintaining an active lifestyle throughout my entire pregnancy, I was able to hit my goal of being size 2 just months after the birth of my 2nd son. I keep healthy by taking supplements and vitamins and eating healthy meals every day.

At CrossFit BNI, you can turn to any one of our trainers if you are looking for improvement. Mike,Grace, Andrea, and Nic all offer wonderful knowledge and support for you as well. Click their names to get all if their information or contact us to find out more today.

In CrossFit, it is necessary for our joints and muscles to be mobile enough to allow our bodies to move fluidly through various motions and movements in order to be efficient in our workouts. The purpose of this class will be to teach individuals how to safely mobilize joints, increase muscle flexibility, and properly warm-up muscles and tissues to prepare for intense activity as a supplement for the programmed warm-ups and WODs at CrossFit BNI.
