  • CrossFit Level 1 Trainer
  • CrossFit Judge
  • USA Weightlifting Member 

Working out was not his favorite thing to do, but with a slight nudge of his friend and future partner in the business, Joe discovered CrossFit. He was there the day CrossFit Mantra opened its doors in 2012 and has never looked back.  After a ski injury that led to ACL reconstruction, he has re-gained more mobility than ever.  Losing 20 lbs, but gaining so much more than just muscle, he particularly enjoys CrossFit's community aspect and method of combining functional movements with cardiovascular endurance and Olympic lifting. Joe has grown into an avid WOD fanatic joining the rest of the CrossFit Mantra family.

Lauren Schuck 

  • CrossFit Level 1 Trainer
  • CrossFit Kids Trainer
  • CrossFit Judge

Lauren was a three sport four year letter winner in high school and very accustomed to year round "practice." In college she decided to pursue other extra curricula's outside of sport and struggled to find a fitness plan with enough structure or focus. Years later after much encouragement and "I promise it won't kill you," she finally walked into CrossFit Mantra.

As of today, Lauren has participated in her 3rd CrossFit Open, getting better and conquering a new movement every year. She has completed her L1 trainer and CrossFit Kids trainer courses and can't wait to go back for more. She not only coaches adult classes, but takes on custom elements clients with programming designed for one on one introduction "on-ramp" to CrossFit at CrossFit Mantra. Lauren also coaches CrossFit Kids, CrossFit Pre-Teens and CrossFit Teens along with Coach John, introducing lifelong fitness knowledge and "love of play" to the younger generation.

She sometimes sneaks away to her "real" job, but feels like Mantra is home and coaching people to improve themselves every day is a true blessing.

Elise Robertson

  • CrossFit L1 Trainer

Elise is a Strongsville native and graduate of the Exercise Science: Pre-Physical Therapy program at Tennessee Tech University where she spent four years on the varsity volleyball team. She has been coaching CrossFit and personal training since January 2015. She has a background in injury prevention and rehabilitation having "gone through the ringer" a few times herself. She is inspired by her former Athletic Trainers and Physical Therapists at TTU- Adam, Chuck, Randi, Mario, and Eric, and former strength coaches, Matt Hewitt and Elijah "EZ" Muhammed.

Elise loves CrossFit, yoga, cold brew, and musicals. She always lets someone else choose the music for class, because if it were up to her, it would be show-tunes 24/7. (We know you wouldn't want that!)

She is also currently taking classes at Tri-C and applying into Physicians Assistant programs in hopes to start in 2019.
