Armati Collective founder and head coach, Derek Grenfell has been training in the functional fitness space since 2011 when he first got involved with CrossFit. Since that time he’s grown to specialize in performance, functional rehab and nutrition. Derek also owns and runs his chiropractic office, Elite Spine & Sport, LLC. He’s passionate about creating stronger, healthier people that are “harder to kill”-a phrase that comes straight from his favorite quote from Mark Rippetoe.
He loves seeing the moment when members realize they are in the driver’s seat of their own health and fitness, and knowing that they can get as far as they are willing to go.
Since Derek already had a background in coaching and training, he applied the lessons and fundamentals taught in his chiropractic and rehabilitation facility to what is now the Armati Collective . What started as a part-time passion project to play alongside the chiropractic office has now evolved into Door County’s premiere health and fitness facility.
Coach Jen has been with Armati Collective since January of 2018 and her favorite thing about coaching is being able to witness just how far members will push themselves. She knows that each person is capable of so much more than they realize at the beginning. She loves helping them “unlock” their potential through functional fitness. Members of the Armati Tribe have a lot of grit and inspire her to be better than she was a day ago, a month ago, or even years ago.
