  • Maxwell Mayes

    Owner & CEO

    As the owner and CEO of Atlantic Beach CrossFit, Max’s love of fitness started at an early age. In high school, he played football and lacrosse and soon discovered weightlifting. While in college, he tackled MMA, boxing, and rugby, Olympic lifting as well as CrossFit. After his first year of law school, Max hit a fork in the road. He found a box called Atlantic Beach Performance, which would later become Atlantic Beach CrossFit.

    “I spoke with the owner who revealed he was going to sell the gym. In that moment, I thought about how much CrossFit meant to me and how it changed my life. I knew I had to do something. So, I made an offer and got my CrossFit Level 1 right after.” Since then, Atlantic Beach CrossFit has been the focal point of Max’s professional life. Each day, he’s given the opportunity to transform and help others through fitness.

    Head Coach

    Nikki is a woman of many talents. Not only is she a head coach at Atlantic Beach CrossFit, she’s also a nutrition and health advocate. The former long distance athlete has multiple triathlons, half-marathons, and full marathons to her credit. She also had a stint as a competitive swimmer, cheerleader, and track star. But in August 2010, everything changed when a friend invited her to a CrossFit box.

    “I’ve loved it since Day 1 and knew that I’d make a great coach. I began interning under seminar staff and attended the Level 1 Trainer course. I earned my certificate in June 2011 and never looked back! I want to educate people on the power of good nutrition and fitness so they can get the most out of the mind, body, and soul they were given.”
