Thomas Casey, aka Yoda; CrossFit Scranton Owner and Head Coach, began his search for a complete method of health and training 26 years ago. Beginning with the traditional gym weight lifting methods he soon after was introduced to the sport of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu which would later prove to be the path to his CrossFit Career. After finding himself being injured quite easily while training the sport in which he grew to love he began to search for a new method of fitness that provided more then just strength, he felt there had to be more aspects to fitness that would need to be established and maintained for him to become a more rounded athlete.
Amongst his search for a rounded sense of overall fitness and health he came across the crossfit.com website, this proved to be the exact and complete set of concepts and methods he had been seeking. After beginning the battle with the “girls” he knew he had found the sport that would take him to not only his max level of ability in the sport of Jiu Jitsu but also take him to new heights in regards to all fitness aspects. Tom received his accredited CrossFit certification in April of 2010 after being AFTA certified for 2 years prior, he established his Scranton Box in May of 2010 and has been going CrossFit strong ever since.
