• Rodney Vire Head Coach

    Head Coach, Owner and Manager Rodney Vire is International Sports and Science Association (ISSA) certified, LeMond Certified and a CrossFit Level 2 Trainer who has been in the fitness industry for over twenty years as a personal trainer. Rodney stumbled onto CrossFit while training his clients. His focus had always been on body building and physique until he discovered CrossFit and found that there was some similarity to the way he trained clients at the time, but recognized that the functional movements and training of what CrossFit offered seemed to be the missing piece to make physical training complete. There has been no turning back since he stumbled onto the Official CrossFit Homepage over five years ago. Rodney has also acquired CrossFit Certificates in Olympic Lifting; and CrossFit Football. Since establishing CrossFit 12-12-12 he has also started the Rodney’s Barbell Club in an effort to revive the Sport of Olympic Lifting in T&T.
    “Living in the Caribbean, we are losing the ability to eat as we used to some twenty years ago. We are heading towards an unhealthy lifestyle of stagnation and fast food. CrossFit has given me, and the people I train with, the power to educate others on healthy choices though the way we eat, and the ability to teach functional movements to help live a better lifestyle. Introducing CrossFit into our community gives us the possibility of rediscovering the core foundation movements…”- Rodney

  • Jamie Hadeed-Leotaud

    My life outside of CrossFit consists of being a wife, a caterer, and an event manager, holding an honors degree in International Relations and Economics. My athletic background includes playing junior tennis for Trinidad and Tobago, representing my country throughout the Caribbean and parts of Southern Florida. For as long as I can remember, I have struggled with my weight; the majority of my childhood and teenage years, I was considered obese. This struggle took me from one failed exercise regime to another…until I stumbled upon CrossFit.
    CrossFit didn’t become an immediate answer to weight loss, but more so, it became my happy place. I found an environment where I not only loved working out, but I fell in love with the atmosphere and what we call “the community.” CrossFit, to me, became my home away from home. My willingness to learn and urge to help others, led me to obtain my CrossFit Level 1 Certification, making me the first registered female L1 in our Box. I don’t plan on stopping here though! I have high hopes of bringing CrossFit Kids to the future of health and fitness in Trinidad and Tobago.
