ASHLEY SCAFETTA

CrossFit is a sport I believe everyone can participate in. I especially see this in the kid athletes of CrossFit Boston. Every new kid I have the opportunity to coach brings to our community a new perspective. Ashley is a young lady who at 10 years old is already competing in triathlons and is a competitive swimmer. My job is to help her learn the movements of the lifts and in the process love CrossFit. I consider my efforts a success when kids can’t wait for practice. Ashley is the athlete of the month because she is always an avid learner and excited to try every single movement I throw her way. Power cleans, heaving snatch balance and rope climbs are just the beginning! She also got on the board for the 7 AMRAP Burpee challenge…not easy for the most experienced CrossFit athlete. She didn’t stop once!

This is Ashley’s story….

This is my story and how I came to like CrossFit. Every year I spend my summer in Italy and when I came back to Boston this year in September 2013 my parents told me they met Tina, a great CrossFit coach and asked me if I was interested to meet her. I agreed and the next day I went to CrossFit Boston. 

I have been swimming competitively for five years and I also do triathlons when the weather is nice. I decided that CrossFit could help me get IMG_1372stronger and I would learn good dry-land exercises.

I see Tina twice a week and love doing the WODs she makes me do. When I learn new exercises, Tina calls me “Speedy Gonzalez” because I tend to speed ahead. She also teases me because she says my feet are wobbly (due to swimming) and I am learning to keep them rooted to the ground! Since I started in September, I have been working with Tina to become a better athlete and I feel I am on the right path. I run faster and I am learning to use weights. My favorite exercise is the rope climbing. I can get all the way up to the ceiling panels on the ropes. I love CrossFit, I think everyone should try it (my father first)!

Due to inclement weather, we will be CLOSED after 10 a.m. on Monday, February 8. All classes and personal training sessions have been cancelled. Please stay tuned for announcements regarding the morning of Tuesday, February 9. All afternoon classes are still scheduled for the 9th.
