Mike Dudevoir, Co-Owner & Coach

I am a Swampscott native that has always had a deep passion for competitive sports, having enjoyed success playing soccer, baseball and basketball growing up. Not only did I love the actual competition, but I also loved the fact that I formed so many friendships through sports, many of which I still have today. I got into CrossFit at age 35 and I am in better shape now than I was when I was playing college soccer 15+ years ago. I feel like an athlete again. I realized immediately that not only was CrossFit the most efficient training method to achieve measurable results, but also a social, supportive community that pushes people to improve every single day.

Being part of the CrossFit community is a special experience and at CrossFit The Swamp we take providing that experience very seriously. I am excited to provide people with an environment that challenges them to push their physical and mental boundaries every day. As co-owner and coach my number one goal is to keep our athletes safe, and make sure they have the opportunity to walk in and out of our doors injury-free.

Being committed to changing your lifestyle is difficult. I get it. But the reward is immeasurable. The thing that I love most about CrossFit is the mental strength that it builds. It resonates in every aspect of your life and makes you a better person because of it. It has changed my life and I am grateful every day for the opportunity to sweat alongside some of the best people I have ever met.

When something changes your life in a positive way it is only natural to want to share that experience with others in hopes that it will impact them in the same way. For me Crossfit gave me that experience and it was only natural from that point forward that I made it a goal to share it with others.

Growing up in a military family and moving around frequently, athletics and sport were my main way of connecting with others whether I was living in the US or overseas in Germany. Sports were universal and were always a part of my life. Throughout high school and college I maintained being a three-sport athlete mainly for the thrill of competition and the community that followed being part of a sports team.

After graduating from Salem State University there was a void, a hole that needed to be filled, but at the time I wasn’t sure what could possibly fulfill my need to compete and be a part of something bigger. Enter CrossFit. CrossFit has taught me to physically and mentally challenge myself but more importantly it has made me a part of a community like no other.

As a coach my motto is simple: my goal is to help you achieve your goals. Whether you are attempting to compete, lose weight, get healthy enough to play with your children – whatever the case, I want to make that a reality. I love people, fitness and being a part of that moment that someone achieves something they never thought they could.

Having grown up as a gymnast, then transitioning to a hurdler, softball and volleyball player in my teenage years, I was no stranger to exercise before I discovered CrossFit. I loved sweating and competing, and most of all, the feeling of finishing a tough workout. Eventually though, I was bored to tears with the various boot camps and kickboxing classes I’d been taking. When I first started CrossFit my hope was simply to get a more challenging workout and into better shape. I got all of that – and much, much more. I gained an entire community.

A community’s mission is the pursuit of excellence – about getting better, together. For the CrossFit community, CrossFit is not just about becoming fitter and healthier. It’s about becoming the best versions of ourselves. Each one of us is pursuing our own personal excellence, but we’re doing it together, next to one another, within the four walls of a sweaty warehouse.

CrossFit enables me to be a happier, saner and more balanced person. I became even more aware of this fact throughout my recent pregnancy, where I worked out until a week before I delivered our son, Jax. I know my delivery and recovery would’ve been a lot tougher had I not continued with CrossFit. I am the most comfortable in my own skin than I’ve ever been in my entire life. I am excited to help our members achieve this the same way I did – by stepping out of old comfort zones, and into new ones where true growth happens.

When I walked through the doors of The Swamp last November I had no idea what to expect, but I was ready for a challenge and to embark on something outside of my comfort zone. Growing up I was a competitive swimmer, and played tennis and lacrosse. I loved being able to participate at a high level in many different sports. Lacrosse took me to Notre Dame where I was a starting center for the Division 1 Fighting Irish. For 4 years at school we were conditioned and trained to be the strongest and fastest athletes possible. I loved it. I loved my coaches and loved the training. I was an athlete and part of a team. But do you have to leave that behind after graduation? Ten years out of Notre Dame I began looking for something that I could feel passionate about and that it would stick, especially while raising two kids.

After I left ND I coached lacrosse and became a personal trainer, looking to help my clients fulfill personal goals both large and small. I loved working with people of all different ages and from all walks of life; people who were just looking to improve their overall health and fitness. They all had that in common, but the process lacked that feeling of community that I have experienced since joining The Swamp.

At The Swamp we are a family and a tight-knit community. I truly feel like an athlete again for the first time since leaving Notre Dame. I am doing things I haven’t done in 10 years, or had never done, and more importantly seeing results that I’ve never experienced. This stuff works! There’s an overwhelming support from our community before, during and after the WODs. We stick together and support each other, and I can’t imagine my life without it.

I truly care about every single athlete at The Swamp and love seeing them crush goals that they may have thought impossible. Everybody has something they are looking to accomplish when they walk through the door of our box, whether it’s large or small. My goal as a coach is to help them get there safely, and make a positive change in their lives.

I used to tell myself that my motivation was all I needed to get some exercise and my gym was wherever I wanted it to be. I wasn’t worried about my fitness; I was worried about my career and my education. I’d run and do push-ups on a park bench when I thought no one was looking…

Fast forward 5 years…months before The Swamp opened I watched a rerun of the CrossFit Games late night on ESPN.  I was suddenly very worried about my fitness. I didn’t know exercise could be like that, I didn’t know people could be that versatile, I didn’t know you could make fitness a sport. When I heard about The Swamp opening I decided I had to join.  The education I received from the coaching staff and other members has had a strong impact on me and with their help every day I’m getting better as an athlete, an individual and now as a member of the coaching staff.

Don’t wait; just go for it – you’ll be amazed by the power of your potential. Soon enough your peers will want to be you when they grow up.

It wasn't until Mike and Jenna opened the doors here at The Swamp in November of 2013 that I discovered CrossFit, and I never looked back. In addition to being a proud member of the first-ever Foundation class at The Swamp, I am also one of the first members to have been inducted into The Swamp's Hall of Fame "Committed Club"; which awards its members with a special kettlebell for having attended more than 15 classes a month for twelve consecutive months. 

Growing up and throughout high school, I was a competitive gymnast and played soccer until my senior year when I tore ligaments in my knee and had to undergo reconstructive surgery. I struggled with knee pain for years until soon after I started doing CrossFit; the pain in my knee has since disappeared. I still feel that I get stronger every single day! 

CrossFit introduced me to a whole new level of fitness. Now, I truly understand the high degree of hard work and dedication necessary to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle - and it is rewarding when you see the results of that effort both inside and out of the Box. I was thrilled to find something that is not only fun, but also effective. 

 "I love the camaraderie and team atmosphere here at The Swamp. As an athlete, I look forward to every workout... even knowing it is going to kick my butt. The energy in the room during a workout is like no other - you just have to experience it! As a coach, I love seeing new members walk through the door to begin their CrossFit journey just as I once did, as much as I love seeing more experienced members progress and accomplish once unthinkable goals.”
