Our leading barbell coach,. Tony is certified as an Olympic lifting coach and has even competed at the Arnold Classic among other regional level weightlifting events.

I've been a coach in a gym setting for over 5 years. This is the most rewarding coaching job I've had. The progress I see daily is next to none. My goal as a coach is to make sure everyone I see on a daily basis moves better than they did yesterday and that they set themselves up for a healthy future.

I've been an athlete my entire life, so when high school ended I knew I needed to find a new hobby. I made my way into a gym in 2012 and later found CrossFit in 2016. I immediately fell in love with the style of training because it encompasses EVERYthing: weightlifting, gymnastics, HIIT, flexibility/mobility, endurance and so much more. I became a coach because there is nothing I love more than helping others reach their goals!

I stepped into my first crossfit gym in 2015 eager for a lifestyle change. Quickly I found out how thrilling it is to push your limits. I fell in love with the barbell and the feeling it left me with after a hard workout. Coaching gives me the same thrill. I love helping people realize how much more they are capable of doing than they believe. I love helping people progress and seeing the look on their faces when they did something they never imagined themselves doing!

I started because I was looking for a way to challenge myself. The gym is not a hobby, it’s a lifestyle. Boombox has taught me functional fitness, Olympic lifting, nutrition and so much more. I coach because I want to show you that anyone can do this. We make different levels for all fitness abilities so that everyone has a positive experience and a good sweat.

In 2016 I started CrossFit for a 6 weeks challenge. After the 6 weeks, I started to see progress and felt this was something I was good at and enjoyed. I slowly grew more confident in myself and in return passed that onto other athletes. I’ve been with Boombox from the beginning. I love the energy that one gets when it finally just clicks for them for that certain skill they’ve been working so hard for. This journey is a process. Be patient. Have fun. Practice until you can’t get it wrong

I began doing Crossfit 8 years ago after a friend invited me to do a tough mudder. Although I was an avid runner I knew I needed to be better prepared. I started seeing things on Facebook about crossfit and I became curious as to what it was about. Found me a Groupon, got started and haven’t looked back. I’ve had coaches push me and encourage me to do things I never thought possible. I decided I wanted to be the one pushing and encouraging others. I got my CFL1 certificate and work to inspire people to live healthier, stronger lives.
