Mike Wiechec – Owner / Coach

Mike started coaching gymnastics classes at a local gym at 15.  He was a multi-sport athlete in High School and a Colligate cheerleader at Illinois State University.  After college, the itch for competition and community never left and he joined CrossFit Wauconda in 2015.  

The Crossfit addiction soon took over and Mike was able to partake in competition and satisfy the physical and mental outlet he was missing.  

In 2016 Mike became CrossFit Level 1 certified and joined the CrossFit Wauconda Ownership.  Mike believes that one of the most important investments we ever make is in our health.  

“The physical and metal outlet that CrossFit utilizes through functional movements and the community the Box offers are unmatched.”

Crystal Rubenstein – Owner / Coach

Crystal began her fitness journey in 2014.  The first time she stepped into a CrossFit box she was hooked!  Not growing up athletic, CrossFit made a huge difference in her life.  It showed her that she was capable of doing so much more than ever imagined.  

Since then she has seen so many lives change from Crossfit and the sense of community is amazing.  A teacher by trade Crystal decided to get CrossFit Level 1 certified to combine her passion for teaching and fitness.  

In 2019 she joined the CrossFit Wauconda Ownership.  

“Don’t be afraid of being a beginner, we all have been there!”
