Friendship’s Team

Friendship’s Staff is the most experienced staff in the Columbus CrossFit and Nutrition Coaching Scene. Our staff has 5 full-time coaches, who have to pass and complete rigorous continuing education standards, even our part time and support staff take part in these! We bring in the team from Columbus Chiropractic & Rehab Center as well as Dr. Jenny Borda to help create seminars and development paths for each of our coaches. 

Coaches are what makes the difference in a fitness facility. How willing are the coaches to go out of their way to help, to give you their free time, to text you to hold you accountable or be there when you need it? This defining characteristic has been what sets Friendship apart from the beginning. Jeff (owner) sets the bar extremely high, and demands the same from his staff. You will not be disappointed in the care, effort and energy we provide.

All of our programs – CrossFit, ThriveFit, Kids & Teens, Nutrition Coaching and Personal Training – are all developed and run by our full-time crew. Come check out our Dublin, Ohio gym location to see what it’s all about!
