Meet The Owner...

Hammerhead Gym is owned and operated by Sarah McCormick alongside her husband, Armand, and friends Bob and Shannon Closson. Sarah and her husband are veteran gym owners and Hammerhead is their 13th facility. Their first gym, CrossFit Kilo, has grown from their basement to a 12,000 square foot facility in Cedar Falls, Iowa. Their love for the sunshine brought them and their 2 sons to the area permanently in 2022. Since graduating from the University of Northern Iowa in 2008, Sarah has spent her years coaching, personal training, and providing nutrition guidance to her clients.

Our Story

The first time we stepped foot into Hammerhead Beach Gym on Fort Myers Beach, we fell in love. The location, the vibe…it was all so cool! We hoped that one day we could call it ours, so when the opportunity arose, we were all in. Starting June 1, 2021, we worked to keep the old school feel that we loved so much, yet give Hammerhead a fresh start. On September 28, 2022, it came to an abrupt halt. Hurricane Ian left us heartbroken and in shock. Our hearts are with all of our members and fellow business owners who have also lost so much. Hammerhead will continue to grow and hopefully have a presence on Fort Myers Beach again one day!


We believe that health is a lifelong journey and we are here to help you be your best at any given time throughout that journey! Our personal trainers offer private, semi-private, and small group training as well as nutrition coaching to help take the guesswork out and help you enjoy the process of becoming your best!

Of course, if you prefer to do you own thing, you are always welcome… 24/7!
