CrossFit Coach
Adam Rooyakkers


  • CrossFit Level 1


  • Cornell College '12


Adam joined our coaching team in 2020 and brings energy, enthusiasm, and a passion for the sport to the Southpaw Community.

Growing up playing sports, he began “lifting” in college. Adam had some strength numbers that he wanted to hit and was never quite able to get there. He decided to give CrossFit a try in 2019 and, as he describes it, had to “make peace with the fact that [he] wasn’t going to get any stronger.”

Fast forward a year later and Adam is lighter, leaner, and stronger than he has ever been. He has exceeded the benchmark strength numbers he was hoping to hit and is in significantly better overall shape.

Adam jumped in with both feet – quickly becoming a regular around the gym, offering to help when he was able, and welcoming others in the sport. His passion was actualized in October of 2020 when he received his CrossFit Level 1 certification and we are excited to have him at Southpaw!
