Brad and Erin Durden both grew up in Westminster Maryland. Erin was involved in soccer and track during her high school and college days. Brad excelled in Football and Lacrosse. Once their college playing days were behind them, they both found it difficult to stay in the shape they were once in. While living in Augusta Georgia Brad stumbled across CrossFit and starting working out with his brother and a couple of buddies. In no time Brad was seeing results. Not only was he slimming down, but he was noticing the relationships that he was building through the community of CrossFit. It, without a doubt changed his life.
When Brad moved back home to marry his wife Erin, he landed a part time job as a level one coach in Eldersburg Maryland. He loved helping build this box from the ground up, which gave him the dream to build the same for himself in his home town of Westminster. Working a sales job 10 hours a day was not the life Brad wanted to live. He wanted to change lives through CrossFit the way CrossFit changed his. With Erin by his side supporting his dream, they decided to trust in the Lord and follow through with making this dream a reality.
Brad and Erin have a son Tripp, and are expecting again come early October. As they grow their family, they also hope to grow a strong knit community of athletes all shapes, sizes, ages and abilities. With Jesus as the forefront of their vision and passion, they hope to spread His Word through the channel of CrossFit Iron Hammer.
