Eric Siegel

eric pullI found CrossFit after playing NCAA Division III soccer for Emerson College, and dabbling in recreational running.  CrossFit allows me to pursue my passion for fitness on a daily basis, and has helped me to reach some life long goals, such as running marathons, as well as other achievements I couldn’t have dreamed of, like competing in the CrossFit Games and lifting at a national level meet.  I believe everyone is an athlete, stronger and more capable than they know. Working with individuals of all ages and abilities to reach their goals, and the look on their face when they accomplish something they never thought possible is why I do this.

After years of playing competitive baseball I found CrossFit in September of 2009, and it changed my life.  My development as an athlete, coach, and person since starting has allowed me to accomplish things I never thought possible, both physically and mentally.  I started coaching at CrossFit Fenway in July 2010.  Since then I have made made great friends, been exposed to an awesome community, competed at the CrossFit Games, and I get to do what I love every day.

Joe recently returned from a summer working as the Strength and Conditioning Coach for the Red Sox single-A affiliate in Greenville SC.

Maralene is a Level 1 Certified Trainer. She was a multi-sport athlete throughout high school playing basketball, volleyball, soccer, and running track. She went on to play Division I basketball and volleyball at Northeastern University. Graduating in 2007 she holds both a Bachelors in Psychology and a Masters in Education. Since age 5 she has always participated in team sports, she has thrived in that community environment.

After college she stretched her skills even farther and took her basketball talents overseas to play professionally in 5 different countries. After she hung up her basketball shoes (at least at least professionally) in 2010, she found herself feeling lost without a team/community to be a part of and she went searching. Living at the time in Dallas she found a gym and began doing CrossFit workouts without even knowing it and got hooked. The first thing she did when she moved to Boston was search out a box to become a part of and the rest is history.

Although she had a very successful career, she cannot imagine what she would have been if she had found CrossFit earlier. “I have gained so much strength and mental toughness that I did not have before. I have found in CrossFit a great community that pushes me beyond my limits day in and day out, harder than I have ever been pushed before, both mentally and physically. I hope to share that with each and everyone I coach. I take great joy in pushing someone beyond what they thought they were capable, and watching the triumph on their face when they realize it too.”

While on track to attend law school, Chris discovered his passion for health and fitness. He became a certified personal trainer and began working at Boston Sports Clubs. He discovered and immediately began CrossFit in 2012 after a stint at Mike Boyle’s Strength and Conditioning in Woburn, MA where he specialized in high school sports performance. Chris was instantly drawn to the community aspect of CrossFit, and particularly admires the togetherness that helps lift people up during workouts. As a coach he strives to make sure that each of his athletes reaches their full potential on a daily basis. He believes that CrossFit is the perfect vehicle to transform an individual’s every day life; the ultimate goal is to move better, feel better, and be prepared to handle whatever life throws at them next.
