Who Are We and Why Are We Here?

Community Unify Roanoke (CUR) exists to create an environment that promotes fitness and develops a community where each and every athlete strives to meet his or her goal(s).  We aim to provide a motivating atmosphere while continuously improving the quality of athletes’ movement through functional training and functional wellness methodology.  A primary goal at CUR is to become recognized as one of most effective training facilities in the fitness community.

Emerging after years of experience and interest with functional fitness training methods, the opportunity to bring the pursuit of fitness to the greater Roanoke Valley became a reality.  The creation of Community Unify Roanoke developed from the minds of our team using a functional fitness platform coupled with exercise science to put together a truly unique affiliate operation.

Community Unify Roanoke was formally introduced on May 2, 2016.  Owned and led by head trainer and doctor in physical therapy Johnathon Childress, along with head coach and doctor in physical therapy Logan Russell, the collective journey to promote and forge elite fitness was set in motion.  Combined is over 20 years of exercise experience with shared passion rooted in functional fitness.  Having this passion blended with the knowledge of working individually with various populations, the Unify team is prepared and ready to welcome you into its community.

We provide a distinguished product in fitness to both the most experienced functional fitness athletes and lifters as well as delivering to the newcomers to functional fitness and/or exercise.  As lead programmer, Coach Johnathon purposefully composes the foundation by which all athletes progress in all areas of fitness, along with improving overall functional translation to real life, everyday tasks.  Our goal is to provide participants of all levels with correct bio-mechanical instruction while simultaneously giving exposure to the constantly varied functional world of fitness.
