Casey Niemela - Coach
I began my CrossFit journey in 2013 at Hardbat CrossFit when I was running distance, lifting on my own, and almost ready to graduate with a bachelor of science from the University of Delaware Athletic Training Program. It took no time for me to fall in love with the whole CrossFit community. Upon graduating and moving to the University of South Carolina for my master of science in athletic training, I was able to make my CrossFit family and experience a little bigger. After accepting a job to be the athletic trainer for C. Milton Wright High School in Bel Air, MD, I was welcomed back by my Hardbat family with strong open arms. I then got my Level 1 Trainer’s Certification and began coaching some crazy, awesome Hardbat athletes in May 2016. With a background in athletic training, I have an excellent knowledge base of anatomy and physiology and prevention, evaluation, and treatment of athletic injuries.
