Nick Mangiamelli

Nick found CrossFit back in 2015 after his college baseball career had ended. Being a year round athlete his entire life Nick missed the camaraderie of team sports and the daily grind of being a student athlete. After viewing an old video of CrossFit Games legend and former Navy Seal Josh Bridges training in his garage Nick was instantly hooked.

CrossFit’s high intensity and heavy barbell lifts under fatigue provided Nick with a challenge that conventional strength training could not replicate. CrossFit’s emphasis on work capacity, movement competency and being prepared for the unknown proved to be a useful tool as Nick began to prepare for his career in the military. After graduating from the University of Connecticut Nick served overseas throughout central and eastern Europe as an infantryman in the U.S Army. As a current Strength and Conditioning graduate student at Springfield College and coach at LWCF Nick is grateful for the opportunity to help others achieve their fitness
