About Us

Our Story

“Well first I have to explain our background. We are a firefighter/paramedic Family. I know I don’t have to tell you that you really need to be in good physical condition to be a firefighter. So needless to say, we used to work out a lot. But we felt like It wasn’t enough. A fitness team was formed In the Fire Department and shortly there after we began a yearly Work Performance Evaluation. We took classes to become Personal Trainers.

Then – We saw the CrossFit Games on ESPN and thought “WOW those people are amazing” We want to be that physically fit. Again, relating it to our job/career. Functional movement, strength: all closely related to saving someone’s life, our brother/sister firefighter or even our own life.

Now Because we were part of the fitness team at the fire dept., we were invited to a local CrossFit gym to try it for a week for free. A small group of firefighters tried it. It was most definitely extremely challenging and an eye opener. We knew then We had to get better at this (Physically improve ourselves) because we felt this would help us better perform our job.

We were hooked. We went on-line and tried to learn everything we could about CrossFit. Then We found a CrossFit Level I course in Hampton Roads. We signed up and Successfully passed and got certified.

We had an opportunity to introduce Functional movement at High Intensity to the residents and visitors of James City County and its surrounding areas. We can help people live a healthier more physically fit life. Throughout this time, we noticed all the negative thoughts some people had about CrossFit. So, we thought well we have got to do something to change this. Our goal was to teach proper form and show people that there was no reason to feel intimidated. We can work with you at your pace and your level of fitness to help you become stronger and help you do things you never thought you could do.

ACE Fitness is our legacy for our grandchildren which is where the name came from – Alana Camden and Elias. We have dedicated ourselves to help our members improve on their form and fitness and do those things they thought they couldn’t do. Building a wonderful relationship; becoming a family; Our Fitness family; not just gym members You walk through our doors and everyone yells your name. It’s an awesome feeling – Everyone knows everyone who walks in. “We have never met a stranger” That’s my Fitness world That’s ACE Fitness.” -Robert Washington and Toni Colon

What people say?

I wanted to do this because I felt insecure about my body, my weight, and stressed out.  When I first started I spent time learning the basics and understanding the proper form for each exercise.  What I love is that there is always a coach with you that is a professional trainer watching and correcting your form.

Joining Ace Fitness has been one of the best decisions I have made in my life. Not only did I lose over 50lbs in a year’s time, but I have made so many wonderful friends that have become family now

I started this fitness journey in Jan of 2018. At my heaviest I was 248 lbs, that’s very hard to put in writing. After having 2 kids and my spine fused, to say I had let myself go was an understatement. Now I’m at 187 lbs with more to go. My journey isn’t over yet.
