Everyone comes to CrossFit Novem for a different reason—to get stronger, fitter, reduce stress, gain confidence, and even create new friendships. These reasons are what inspires us and our members to make fitness a way of life. We will train you safely and properly. What we’re doing at Novem isn’t new, but how we’re executing this particular brand of fitness is.


We’ve curated a healthy, vibrant community at CrossFit Novem that’s about way more than burpees and box jumps. Our programs are as varied as our members—we offer classes in CrossFit, Bootcamp, and the olympic lifting Barbell Club. Our coaches have certification from CrossFit HQ and other fitness disciplines.

Nick Bailey

Assistant Coach

Nick Bailey grew up in Central Pennsylvania where he discovered his love for fitness running on the long back roads of the state’s farmland. He excelled in cross country and on the track, and he discovered early on that he enjoyed mentoring and motivating other teammates and younger athletes. When he entered college, he opted to graduate to the 1/2 and eventually full marathon distances. After several years training and running the marathon, he began to notice fatigue issues that forced him to explore other areas of fitness and exercise. Missing the group mentality of training with a team, Nick gravitated toward group fitness as he began exploring alternatives to running. In 2017, Nick took his first indoor cycling class and immediately knew he wanted to coach. Nick became a certified Spinning instructor later that year, and he currently teaches rhythm-based cycling at Revel Ride in Graduate Hospital where he loves creating a safe space for riders of all levels to sweat and challenge themselves.

Nick came to CrossFit Novem in October 2018 with the simple goal of getting stronger. After completing Novem’s on-ramp program, Nick was instantly hooked. Having an extensive background in cardio and endurance exercise, he enjoys the strength and skills work provided by CrossFit because he finds it to be the most challenging. Nick loves exercise and wellness, and he is excited to join the Novem coaching team to share his passion. He loves to help people, and is excited to help members grow stronger and reach their own personal fitness goals. Outside of fitness, Nick is an advertising account planner, and when he has free time, you’ll find him playing fetch with his dog around the neighborhood.
