Our CrossFit Training Coaches

Pam Riddle - Coach

I was introduced to CrossFit in 2011 and immediately was hooked. Having been in the fitness industry my whole life, CrossFit meshed with my own personal fitness & teaching style.  Instead of going to the gym & spending hours lifting, doing cardio stretching, etc., I could do all of that in one hour at 1727. But more than the workouts, I love the community & the friends I’ve made along the way.

Sam Eck - Coach

I found CrossFit in 2012 and immediately fell in love with the workouts and the community. Active my whole life, I have a black belt in Taekwondo, played football through high school and captained the co-ed cheerleader team at Westfield State. I began working out at CrossFit 1727 after gaining some weight and being unhappy with myself. The team and community at 1727 helped me get back to where I needed to be!

I love CrossFit because there is a great blend of community and competitiveness that helps people thrive. I became a coach to help our community hit their goals, just like 1727 helped me hit mine!

Joe Shea - Owner/Coach

I was introduced to CrossFit by a family member in 2008 and have never looked back. Bored with a traditional gym, the CrossFit methodology made me enjoy fitness again. It quickly filled the void left from years of playing competitive sports, which I was no longer participating in. A former junior hockey goaltender, I feel my years of 1-1 training with top coaches in arguably the most technical position in all of sports, gives me a sharp eye to break down and correct form. As a three time Regional Competitor, I look forward to sharing my experiences. I can't wait to meet you and get to work.
