Matt Michaud owner of EverProven CrossFit
Our founder

Matt Michaud

EverProven started with a small group of friends using cobbled together equipment in Matt’s garage. As the group of friends outgrew their garage EverProven moved into a charming space in The Cocheco Mills in downtown Dover, NH. Adding new coaches, new services and working with a business mentor led to an expansion of EverProven into our current facility – a warehouse space with over 10,000 feet filled with all of the best equipment!

Crystie McGrail

Coach / Manager In 2014 Crystie discovered CrossFit and EverProven at the same time after researching local Dover gyms and finally building up the nerve to walk in for a “No Sweat Intro”. With the goal of reducing imbalances caused by a lifelong love of competitive swimming she found that and more, including significant performance improvements, after just a few months of workouts. Having coached and competed with U.S. Masters Swimming for the past 10 years she decided to expand her knowledge of CrossFit by completing the CrossFit Level 1 course and begin coaching. Crystie has also completed the USAW Level 1 training. When she is not at the box, or the pool, Crystie enjoys mountain biking and trail running and has occasionally combined them with swimming to compete in off-road triathlon.
