Brandi Arey

I grew up playing all sports and I have always been very competitive and active. I have always wanted to encourage others to live a healthy lifestyle. I played soccer for Gardner Webb University and majored in Exercise Science. Throughout college and after college  I worked as a personal trainer and strength and conditioning coach. In 2019, Jake and Zach asked me if I'd like to create a "boot camp" program out of  CrossFit 926. Ecstatic with the opportunity, I jumped on board and created Spark. Spark is near and dear to my heart. Spark is designed for all fitness levels and is made to encourage/inspire individuals to live their healthiest lives and become the best version of themselves. Whether you have done CrossFit/ worked out for years or have never worked out in your LIFE, spark is for you. We would LOVE to meet you and have you give Spark a try!

I have always felt like my purpose is to help inspire others to fall in love with the fitness journey. I want Spark to be a place where ALL individuals can challenge themselves mentally and physically. I want to help individuals not only get physically stronger and more fit but I also want to encourage them to get mentally stronger. No matter your sex, age, or background I hope Spark can be a place where you gain confidence and learn to enjoy the process of your own individual fitness journey.
