We are excited to welcome Austin as our member experience manager. Please say hello and welcome him to the CFS community!
Hi CrossFit Stamford,
I wanted to take this opportunity to introduce myself to everyone, In case you were wondering who the new guy is around the gym. My name is Austin and you guys will be seeing me around CFS more often. I will be here helping the team out with social media, as well as helping create and run events and the On Ramp program.
So please feel free to say hi. As far as some background info on me goes, I`ve been in the CrossFit world for a while. I started CrossFitting back in old days of 2009 and then opened CrossFit Danbury in 2010, where I was the Owner and Head Coach, at the time the closest CF was about an hour away. I recently sold the business to my former business partner. My focus now will be on using my experience and education to help where I can here at CFS and to grow my new career in the Commercial Real Estate field.
Back in my CF Danbury days we created and ran many great events and competitions (Summer Swolestice, Scream & Clean, Nightmare before Christmas, Valentines Day Massacre, MadhatterMania) that we now plan to bring here to CFS, we already have a competition on the books for January 20th, 2018 called Fire & Ice!!!! ( more details about this coming very soon).
Some of my coaching background highlights include;
Coach & Athlete on 2 CrossFit Games NorthEast Regional teams (2012, 2013)
Head Coach of The Danbury Mad Hatters of the North East GRID League 2015 5th place @ GRID Invitational ( Anaheim, CA) , 2016 1st place.
