Crew Fitness is excited to welcome Cindy Taylor, Madison Perry, and Emily Higdon to our team of coxswains. A coxswain is the person on a Crew team that calls instructions and power strokes for the rowers in a boat. At Crew Fitness, our qualified instructors earn the title coxswain as they direct us toward our fitness goals.

Cindy comes to us with 16 years experience in the fitness industry, teaching cycling, among other fitness experiences. After taking her class, one Crew rower described her like this: “She seems sweet, but she’s a firecracker!” Cindy will make it her mission to see to it that you get a great workout in each of her classes. Cindy describes her approach to nutrition as MODERATION, MODERATION, MODERATION. She says, “diets are temporary but moderation is forever.”


Madison earned her degree in Kinesiology at the University of Alabama. She grew up in gymnastics and cheerleading, and she has coached 2 special needs cheer squads. One Crew class, and Madison was hooked! She also says that Crew has quickly increased her endurance, and that anyone looking for a new and exciting way to work out should come straight to Crew Fitness!



Emily earned her degree in exercise science from the University of South Alabama, where she played softball on scholarship. She also rides horses and works at the Blue Gill. She says Crew has inspired her to take her own fitness to a new level, as she trains for the upcoming Spartan race!
