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)!

    Let’s start with a regret. I wish I had gotten off my ass and joined CrossFit Boston a year ago. Fitness-wise, it had been a rough year since I got out of the Marines and started at HBS (Harvard Business School). Not that I wasn’t working out at all, but what I was doing wasn’t [...]
