Daniel Blackwell

Owner/ Head Coach
I am passionate about a few things in my life; my faith, my family, my friends, and CrossFit.

About Me

I am a father of two very beautiful and very active little girls. Both of whom put my fitness to the test daily! I found CrossFit in 2005 while training for wrestling and it’s turned into a passion and a lifestyle ever since. CrossFit has changed the way I view everyday events and struggles and has given me the physical and mental strength I’ve needed to face the challenges of life. It’s brought me exceeding joy and presents me with a new challenge everyday. I feel incredibly blessed to be the owner and head coach of CrossFit Simplicity and I look forward to sharing my passion with all of you.

Coach Felicia Cenca

After competitively dancing for most of my life, I was searching for a way to enjoy exercise again. A good friend introduced me to Crossfit a few years ago and the motivating and unique environment instantly captured me. Crossfit has brought me an amazing community that holds me accountable for my goals and encourages me to reach them daily, in and out of the gym. Everyday that I train and coach I am reminded and inspired by my personal growth and the continued growth of our members. As a recent Elon University graduate and now employee, North Carolina has become my second home and the Crossfit Simplicity community, a second family. I look forward to continuing to strive for my goals, while helping others do the same.

Coach Maryann Sibrizzi

I began my CrossFit journey in January of 2016 after graduating college. My competitive soccer career ended when I graduated, and I needed a new outlet. I had coworkers that were doing CrossFit, and I decided I wanted to join in on the fun that they were always talking about.

I can still remember my first WOD, which included infamous burpees. I’ve been hooked ever since! More than two years later, I can’t wait to get to the gym and better myself and others. I love having a supportive community, feeling accomplished after a really tough workout, and the personal growth attained. I became a trainer because I love seeing the improvements that each athlete makes and their desire to want to get better and learn every day. I aim to provide the absolute best experience for all of the members of CFS!
