PLANS + PROGRAMS FOR THE EVERYDAY ATHLETE
MEET THE COACH
Originally from Boston, Massachusetts, Owen Bernstein essentially grew up in CrossFit. Beginning in 2011 at the ripe age of 16, he found himself stepping into his buddy Lloyd Rice’s box to get into better shape for the upcoming soccer season. After trying every program and gimmick in the book, Owen immediately fell in love with the structure, discipline and results from CrossFit.
Evolving from a student to teacher, Owen started instructing fundamentals classes in 2013 and continued coaching through college for Reebok CrossFit Back Bay, which is now part of Invictus Boston.
Today he has accumulated more than 1,000 coaching hours and counting.
Beyond the box, Owen kicked off his career as a competitive CrossFit athlete making it to the CrossFit Games with Reebok CrossFit Back Bay in 2016. In 2018, he came back swinging with a rank of 194th in the CrossFit Open worldwide earning a spot as an individual in the North East Regional. This year, Owen competed as an elite individual at CrossFit Strength in Depth in London, England and the Granite Games.
Venturing down south, Owen joined the esteemed coaching team of Rhapsody CrossFit, one of the fastest growing gyms in Charleston, in January 2019. The same year he launched Strength in Motion to provide personal training and strength programming for everyday athletes aiming to be a force of movement.
As a coach, Owen is in your corner to help you understand the intricacy and complexity of each movement. His mission is to show you that consistent small steps culminate into obliterating your personal goals. Owen will be the first to tell you that there was a day when he could not squat below parallel or do strict pull-ups – with persistence and effort, you will slowly but surely get where you want to go.
Owen is ecstatic to develop hungry, humble, happy athletes in relentless pursuit of the common goal of becoming their best selves.
