Kellie Eaton


My name is Kellie Eaton, and I own and operate CrossFit Safety Harbor. I’ve been a personal trainer for more than 25 years, and I opened CFSH in 2013. CrossFit changed my life in ways I had never dreamed possible; it has been a wonderful experience to be part of a community and movement that has such a positive impact on people’s lives.

Being a trainer and coaching people is not just a job; it’s who I am. I believe fitness and health are for everyone. Showing my clients the benefits of maintaining a healthy lifestyle and helping them realize their own strength and potential is what drives me and makes me proud. I love showing up every day to work with so many awesome people.

I was raised locally in Dunedin, FL, and have spent most of my life in the area. When I’m not at the gym, you’ll find me enjoying the outdoors: hiking, skiing, scuba diving, cycling, and taking my dog on adventures.

I grew up here in Safety Harbor and have lived most of my life in the area. Kellie and I have been married now for close to 5 years and we enjoy traveling, snow skiing, scuba diving and all sorts of outdoor fun.

I’ve been an avid fitness and strength training enthusiast most of my life. I started weight training when I was young as a way of building muscles on my skinny body. I worked out all through high school. I continued training once I joined the Army along with lots of good, hard P.T. I enjoy testing myself to see what I’m made of. For years I rode dirt bikes, then I transitioned to endurance events, sprint and Olympic-distance triathlons, half marathons, tough mudder and local 5k and 10k runs. One day my wife shared a video of this thing called CrossFit. Like many people, I was skeptical. I was concerned about old injuries that would keep me from doing some of the movements. So I initially dismissed it. About a year or so later I caught up with a friend who was very involved and who helped dismiss some of the CrossFit myths. My wife and I jumped in, and loved it from day one.

We knew right away we had to share CrossFit with as many people as we could.

I really enjoy training hard, and helping others better themselves. It’s great to see people doing things they never thought they could. I’ve learned that none of us really has any idea of what we are capable of. We never will if we don’t get out there and put ourselves to the test.

charlieI have been involved with CrossFit for over 5 years. I initially joined a CrossFit affiliate with no athletic background at all. Immediately upon my journey I developed a passion for fitness in a competitive and technical environment. I’ve developed healthier lifestyle habits and genuinely enjoy helping others achieve the same results. I truly benefit from the challenge of learning a new skill (there is ALWAYS a new skill to learn), and have been able to do things with my body I would’ve never dreamed possible. CrossFit not only creates a stronger physical body, but the mental toughness that is developed is remarkable! I am a firm believer that no matter where you are in life or what your background is, there is a version of CrossFit that is for everyone!

Philosophy:  Everyone starts at the same place. It’s just a matter of when you begin that counts; there are no excuses; only hard work, dedication and consistency. Fitness is a lifestyle.
