Amy Adamson - Manager/Trainer
CrossFit Level 1 Certified/CF-L1
Amy was introduced to CrossFit in November of 2009 as a way to get stronger for rugby. After a year of doing CrossFit and rugby together, she hung up her boots and focused on CrossFit. She has since competed in team events at the 2011 and 2012 Northeast Regionals and the Beast of the East, and individually at the Hybrid Strongman Competition. Over many hours at the gym, she has found a joy in helping others learn new movements. As a person who has worked hard at certain skills (like 9 months of trying to get double-unders), she has learned different ways to instruct movements, which translates well into helping others. In addition to her CrossFit Level 1 course, she has done seminars with Greg and Aimee Everett (Catalyst Olympic lifting) and Carl Paoli (Gymnastics WOD). She hopes to help people achieve their fitness goals.

Eric Blumenthal - Trainer
CrossFit Level 1 Certified/CF-L1
Eric started doing CrossFit in the Spring of 2008 (when there were NO CF Affiliates in Maine) while looking for something to break him out of his fitness routine. He was bored with his Glob-Gym workouts and attempted his first CrossFit workout on April 23, 2008. His first WOD was “Murph”, and though he completed it without the Rx’d 20# vest and using an assisted pull up machine, he gained a huge amount of respect for the intensity of the workout.
In May of 2010 he found CrossFit MF in Portland, which was conveniently located across from his place of work. He worked out there as he could until Stone Coast opened on April 17th, 2012 .
In his free time Eric enjoys Competing and Judging in CF events, reading, and spending time with his two children, Jonas and Mia.
His favorite WOD is Helen and his least favorite is anything that involves Double – Unders.
