Battling with weight at 210 pounds, Mario decided it was time to regain his competitive nature once established as a high school wrestler. Searching for the perfect activity and sport, he tried both powerlifting and bodybuilding. Both were a good start but not quite the perfect fit. While following the typical gym routine at the local gym, Mario heard about CrossFit. After doing some research he tried his first workout in January 2010. Mario immediately knew CrossFit was something special and so began an obsession.

Since then, Mario has learned how beneficial CrossFit is to our daily lives. After reaping the benefits of the program and seeing how it changed his own life, he has decided to spread the CrossFit philosophy. In addition to getting certified and pursuing further education in the field, he has had the honor of learning under coaches Dennis and Jenn. Since the doors opened here at CFGC Mario has been a dedicated flagship member and coach.

Mario specializes in working with beginners not only by knowing the difficult path personally but most importantly by having the patience and determination to help every individual achieve the best quality of life possible both inside and outside our doors.
