Clay Godfrey and Alan Shaw at Rhapsody Fitness in Charleston, SC.

From ocean swims to varsity wrestling, Clay was always active and started hitting the weights at 13 years young. With sights set on higher education, he made his way to The Citadel – The Military College of South Carolina, graduating with a BS in Exercise Science in 2016. 

Pursuing his passion to become both a coach and competitor, Clay earned serious stripes training with CrossFit Games athletes Travis Mayer, Noah Ohlsen, Chandler Smith and Mike McGoldrick. In the 2019 CrossFit Open, Clay ranked 1,522 of the 186,000 athletes who participated from across the globe. 

In parallel to training and competing among the best of the best, Clay invested 7 years in culminating education and coaching experience as the Head Coach at CrossFit Discovery, Head Coach + Manager of CrossFit Dunwoody, and the Owner + Head Coach of One Fellowship Fitness.

As fitness circles run small, Clay connected with and immediately became fast friends with Rhapsody Fitness Co-Owners Alan Shaw and Trinity Wheeler through likeminded motivations and an unwavering mission to help others become their best selves by providing prime coaching, exemplary experience and an elite facility. 

For every athlete, Clay aims to give you the best hour of your day when you step onto the floor. He believes in empowering you to live a long, fulfilling life by helping you be happy, healthy and fit. 

When Clay isn’t picking up heavy things and putting them down, you will find him seeking the next challenge or road less traveled. Pro tip, the fastest way to his heart is shared “The Lord of the Rings” fandom or a reference to Star Wars lore.
