What started as a coaching practice in their garage blossomed into a thriving community committed to helping others live long, fulfilled lives in healthy bodies . Our Humble Beginnings CrossFit Veneration’s initial home was at 36 W Jersey St, a repurposed oil shop spanning just under 2,000 square feet. The Strouts poured their hearts and souls into this space, and within a year, their community grew rapidly. Seeking room for expansion, they relocated to 101 Recreation Dr., a building that once housed the town’s bowling alley. It was here that Veneration truly evolved and grew into the exceptional company it is today. The Birth of a Vision Before opening their doors to the public, Storm and Courtney crafted their vision for Veneration, the mission they aimed to accomplish, their core beliefs, and their goals. These values serve as a compass, guiding every decision and action taken at CrossFit Veneration. The Power of Values Storm and Courtney firmly believe that the right thing is always the right thing. Their values are more than just words; they are principles they are willing to be held accountable to. Their team doesn’t merely know these core values; they embody them fully, delivering excellence in their services and behaviors, both inside and outside the facility. This allows us to build deep, meaningful relationships with our clients and serve as a beacon to evaluate our actions regularly. The Evolution of Veneration Today, our values are upheld and demonstrated by our dedicated team each time we open our doors. We remain committed to executing our vision, fulfilling our mission, and revolutionizing health in our community for generations to come. Meet the Strouts Storm Strout has a journey rooted in a sincere understanding of the importance of personal health. As a husband, father of two, and CEO he’s experienced the challenges of feeling overwhelmed, overworked, and overstressed. It was from this understanding that Veneration was born. Storm is dedicated to providing you with the opportunity to add years to your life and life to your years. He is committed to revolutionizing health in our community, and, alongside his professional coaching team, has helped thousands achieve their goals. Storm brings virtuosity, attention to detail, creativity, and consistency to everything he does. In addition to building Johnstown’s premier health coaching practice at CrossFit Veneration, Storm manages commercial and residential real estate properties, is a Business and Lifestyle Mentor in his practice Latitude Mentorship, as well as working for world’s largest fitness business mentoring company; Two-Brain Business. Courtney Strout is a woman of diverse roles and unwavering commitment. She is a loving wife and devoted mother of two, infusing her family life with warmth and compassion. Simultaneously, as the COO of Veneration and a registered nurse, she is on a mission to empower her community in the battle against chronic illness. Her dedication is deeply rooted in her firsthand experiences witnessing how lifestyle choices – the good, the bad, and the ugly – impact her community’s health. Leading the Veneration team, Courtney finds utter fulfillment in guiding her teammates to build careers that enrich their lives while also helping clients achieve the once seemingly unattainable. Proudly, she is an integral part of people’s transformative journeys, aiding them in making daily strides toward their lifelong dreams. Courtney’s superpower lies in her ability to break down habits and daily actions into manageable steps, fostering meaningful and lasting life changes. Together the Strouts spend most of their life outdoors as a family hiking, rock climbing and camping.
