John studied Kinesiology/Fitness Development at Cortland State where he also played rugby. “After college, I did your typical gym workouts and I was introduced to CrossFit in 2010 by a trainer at my local gym. I quickly realized the benefits of functional fitness and the positive influence it had across other aspects of my life and health. I got my Level 1 to be able to effectively spread that message to family and friends who needed help with their health and wellness. Seeing the tremendous effects it had on their mobility, energy levels and overall outlook, I realized that coaching was truly a passion of mine.
