Emily & Marc Norcross
Emily, a Certified Athletic Trainer, spent the 14 years working in Division 1 athletics at an ATC with a wide variety of athletes before opening Recharge Eugene. The D1 setting was the inspiration for Recharge Eugene because there are so many recovery and injury treatments that college and professional athletes have access to that every active individual would enjoy and benefit from. When she's not at Recharge, Emily can be found at one of her kiddos activities or in her garden (only on the nice days)!
Born and raised in New Jersey, Marc’s journey to Oregon included three cross-country moves and stops in Massachusetts, North Carolina (twice!), and California. He earned a BS in Athletic Training from Boston University and an MA in Exercise and Sport Science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. While at UNC, he met Emily, and the two moved to Southern California where he worked as an athletic trainer with the men’s soccer and track & field programs at UCLA . The family returned to North Carolina so that Marc could complete a PhD in Human Movement Science (Biomechanics) at UNC. They then made their way to Oregon in 2011 where Marc teaches courses in athletic training and kinesiology, and conducts sports-related injury prevention research.
Beau is a recent Human Physiology B.S graduate from the University of Oregon with aspirations to one day work with track and field programs as a strength and conditioning or recovery coach. When he's not running the front desk and assisting everyone with their recovery at Recharge, Beau runs mid-distance track and field for Team Run Eugene semi-professionally. In his free time he loves to play football, explore the wonders of Oregon, and go to breweries. He also enjoy taking naps in the Normatec chairs!
Brenda has been in the fitness industry for the past 4 years, with a focus on mind body exercise. Her biggest goal in her work is to help others use the body to heal the body. She is a recovery specialist here as well as one of our instructors, and she also teaches for Barre3. She studied Human physiology at the University of Oregon with a special emphasis on Sports specific physiology. Outside of work, Brenda is most likely found outside somewhere with her dog, off in the woods or out on the beach, in the river, on the river or up a tree finding new adventures and creating just a bit of mischief.
Kimber’s diverse athletic background has led her to run the steeplechase in track, and, more recently, to compete in trail and obstacle course racing. While completing her BA in Exercise Science at Willamette University, she earned multiple track and cross country honors. She went on to earn All-American honors in the steeplechase while completing her MS in Human Physiology at the University of Oregon. As a post-collegiate athlete, Kimber has competed at USATF Track Nationals twice in the steeplechase. In 2014 she ventured into the trail and obstacle course racing scene. Her season includes winning the Warrior Dash World Championship and the XTERRA Trail Run World Championship. Kimber plans to continue to compete at the World and National level in track, trail, mountain, and obstacle course racing.
In addition to training, Kimber coaches Track and Cross Country and teaches Human Physiology classes at the University of Oregon. As a professional athlete, coach, teacher, and exercise physiologist, Kimber enjoys using her knowledge and experience to help her maximize her athletic potential, while also supporting and educating the community to help them achieve their health, fitness, and athletic goals.
