Mike Tenerelli


I was born and raised in Glen Ellyn, and sports were a part of my life from a very young age. I immediately gravitated towards football and baseball. I played on various travel and all star teams as a kid, and learned to love competition right from the start. I played football and baseball at Glenbard South, where in football, I was named to the All-State team as a linebacker/running back.

I then moved onto college and played football at North Central College in Naperville. I was a 4-year starter, and also team captain. I had interests in pursuing law school, but opted to enter our family business, Caldwell Plumbing.

After my college football career, I stuck with fitness and worked out daily at a typical gym, until I discovered CrossFit in January of 2012. CrossFit brought out the competitor in me once again, and I immediately made it my passion. Health, fitness, and CrossFit are now very strong passions in my life. I get more satisfaction from training our members, and seeing their progress, than my own. I absolutely love the tight knit, community feeling of CrossFit. I also love the competition style workouts and the physical diversity it offers on a daily basis. To me there’s nothing better than competitive fitness, it’s the best of both worlds.
