Vinny Joyce

OWNER/FOUNDER

Founder CrossFit Level 2 Certificate USAW Level 1 Trainer At 29 years old, high school and college sports were far in the rear view mirror, Vinny had gained a few extra pounds, and had nothing to be passionate about. It became obvious that Vinny missed being a part of a team and pushing himself physically. The options were limited to big box gyms with typical body part workouts and beer league football games.

One day in the summer of 2011, while reading a random fitness magazine Vinny stumbled upon an article entitled, “CrossFit, The Sport of Fitness”. The rest is history… A ten year timeline that includes, joining a CrossFit gym, becoming a Coach, getting fired from his day job and opening his own CrossFit gym, has led Vinny to find his life’s work, in creating and building CrossFit Conshohocken. Having now server over 4000 clients, and with 10 years of experience, Vinny has found his true calling. Whether he is on the gym floor coaching, guiding new members into CrossFit, or mentoring his staff, he is 100% CrossFit.

Lauren Bond

CROSSFIT LEVEL 1 CERTIFICATE COACH

Lauren grew up in Delaware County and has been playing sports since the early age of 5 and has been an avid snowboarder since the age of 10. She spent a great deal of time outdoors and eventually found her two favorites, softball and field hockey.. She played competitive softball throughout high school and continued playing recreational softball and field hockey at Bloomsburg University.

After graduating, she was no longer playing sports and missed the competitive and social aspects of being on a team. She tried a few gyms, but it was Crossfit that really offered what she had been missing. Lauren joined her first CrossFit gym in 2016. Although she felt intimidated at first, she quickly realized this was the “team” she had been searching for and has not looked back since. CrossFit was a huge support for her, especially when she started graduate school. The stress of graduate school took a toll on Lauren and she frequently looked to her CrossFit community to help keep her physically and mentally healthy. Lauren eventually decided that she wanted to know more about CrossFit- the real nitty gritty. She completed the Level 1 course in 2019 and was given the chance to grow stronger with her gym community. After obtaining her Level 1, Lauren began shadowing the veteran coaches at CrossFit Conshohocken and eventually started coaching on her own. She thoroughly enjoys helping others identify their strengths, both in the gym and personally. A quote that Lauren identifies strongly with is “great things never came from your comfort zone.”

Vernon, NY made PA his home in 2010 after graduating from Ursinus College where he studied Exercise and Sports Science, with a minor in Coaching.

Over the next two years, Nick went on to complete an internship with CrossFit Conshohocken, as well as start a CrossFit club at Temple University, where he was able to share his passion for CrossFit with countless others.

Nick Laffredo

CROSSFIT LEVEL 1 CERTIFICATE COACH

Nick was born and raised in the area only 5 minutes away from our gym in Norristown. Growing up, Nick was very active as a kid and he would ride his bike and skateboard wherever he had to go. Nick was active in all sports from soccer, baseball, basketball to skateboarding and snowboarding through high school. Fast forward to 2012/13 when Nick decided on a new career path as a Police Officer.

Nick was working in the neighboring Borough of Bridgeport as a Part-Time Police Officer and one day finally decided to walk into the local CrossFit Gym and introduced himself to Coach Vin. Since then, Nick began to train with Coach Vin and then came along with him when he opened CrossFit Conshohocken in 2013. Since then, Nick has become more and more involved in the CrossFit community and his own personal journey to become a better athlete and now a coach. Nick obtained his CrossFit Level One training certificate in 2018. Coach Nick’s main focus now is to coach, learn and push everyone to be more functionally fit then the day before. Whether trail running, RUCKing, mountain biking or doing classic CrossFit workouts and HERO WOD’s, he is striving to be a better coach, athlete and member of our community.
