Merrilee is a founder and owner of CrossFit Main Line Ardmore & Wayne. Finding CrossFit was a defining moment in Merrilee’s life. She always had an interest in health and exercise, but had struggled to find a true sense of fitness. “I credit CrossFit, in combination with proper nutrition, and it’s supportive community withhelping me achieve the body image I have always wanted – while never feeling healthier or stronger”. Since then, educating others and helping them in their own quests for health has become her personal and professional goal.
Along side CrossFit, Merrilee is also certified in Vinyasa Power Yoga, Endurance programming, Olympic Lifting and CrossFit Kids.
Before CrossFit, Merrilee was a standout field hockey goalkeeper at Villa Maria Academy, going on to play for Wake Forest University where she helped in the Deacs win two National Championships.

I love the encouraging community, the competitive environment and the results don’t hurt. CrossFit has improved my physical and mental strength that I use inside and outside of the Box. And let’s be serious, its a lot of fun!
Nothing is more inspiring than working with others and encouraging them to do things they never thought possible. Whether its getting a movement for the first time, hitting a PR or achieving a health goal, its what I love to do.
