owner & head coach

Jessica Scully


Jessica loves a good challenge -  whether it be physical or mental.  She has always played sports - swimming, tennis, rowing, running, to name a few. Once she graduated college, she missed the competitive aspect and physical challenge. Finding CrossFit changed that. She feels it is so reminiscent of team sports, where everyone is rooting for you, cheering you on to the end. She loves helping people who come here and find inner strength they didn't know they had. 


Favorite foods: Pizza. Or Trader Joe's Nutty Bits. 


Favorite move in the gym: Deadlifts and burpees. (Yes, burpees!) 


When not at HCCF: I can be found hanging out with Slater and Brandan or in the kitchen crafting recipes for my food blog, Paleo Scaleo.

owner & coach

Brandan Scully


Brandan has dabbled in fitness since middle school, competing in sports like soccer, track, and cross-country. While in college at the USCGA, he was introduced to calisthenics as part of the rigorous physical training requirements (hello, burpees!), along with a range of other sports to fulfill the 3-season sport requirement: sailing, fencing, marathons, volleyball, rugby, backpacking, rock climbing, tennis, racquetball, golf, and scuba. Jessica introduced him to CrossFit in 2013, and after reluctantly trying it, he became hooked. The sheer efficiency of results from CrossFit speaks to his engineer brain and fits his busy schedule.


Favorite foods: Meat and bourbon.


Favorite move in the gym:


When not at HCCF: You'll find me smoking meat, eating meat, and wrangling weeds and bees with  Jess and Slater at Buried Tractor Farm.

head coach & personal trainer

Joe Reava


Just Joe has been working as a personal trainer since 2012 and as a CF coach since 2014. His lifelong love for athletics started well before they would let him on the soccer team in 3rd grade and has led to experience in many sports that allow him to connect with others and more deeply understand how to move. When he's not at the gym, Joe enjoys being outside, whether at the beach or camping in the mountains, finding delicious food joints, playing with pups, and some low key gaming.


Favorite food: A delicious burger with a great aoli/sauce and toppings...probably bacon....usually bacon.


Favorite move in the gym: Muscle Ups. I may or may not have been the kid who climbed on everything growing up.


When not at HCCF: I can be found exploring. Finding a new restaurant, camping in a new place, visiting a new country, but the sky is the limit!
