Rachel Amaral

Certifications: CF L1, CF Strongman, USATF Fundamentals, Battling Ropes
Years doing CrossFit and a brief synopsis: 5. Coaching for 4.5. After competing in Division I track at The College of the Holy Cross I entered the big bad real world working. Soon I felt out of sorts and I didn’t know why. Finally I realized it was physical competition. You can’t go from athletics being essentially your job to nothing. Being a discount queen, I found a Groupon, started, and it changed my life. Not only did I feel better overall, but also my self esteem/confidence sky rocketed and I made some of the closest friends I have.

Favorite Movement Olympic Movements. Such a beautiful combination of strength, athleticism, and grace.

Favorite Cheat Food Cheese. All of the cheese.
Something Special About You I’m a human jukebox and will try to turn almost any situation into a song and a dance.
Why do you like coaching:
Two Main Things:1. When an athlete’s goals in CrossFit change from “I want to lose 10 lbs,” to “I want to put 10 more lbs. over my head!” or “I want that pull-up!” That life style transition is incredible to watch and encourage.
2. The moment it all clicks. Whether it be the top of the kip to proper clean technique. Adults don’t experience glee like kids do much as they get older. These are those moments that feeling comes back. Riding the wave on that excitement is such an awesome experience. Knowing that I can help guide people to that moment makes the heart smile.

Steven Blais

Certifications: Crossfit L1; Spartan SGX, GORUCK Rucking University

Years doing CrossFit: 5. I came to CrossFit in 2012 after a breakup and never looked back. After losing over 60 lbs, I wanted to provide the same guidance to athletes that had been given to me, and pursued my CrossFit L1 Certification. Since then, I have become an avid runner and obstacle course racer, and have several top 10 finishes to my name. In 2017, my goal is to ruck 1000 miles, complete 3 marathons, a Half Iron Man, and qualify for OCR World Championships. Not bad for a former fat kid.

Favorite Movement: Long, long runs. And heavy squats. Least Favorite Movement: Rest

Something Special About You: Regional Athletic Director, Team RWB; in 2016, I ran 102 road and trail races

Something Special About You: 
My goal when I am finished with graduate school is to be a literacy specialist in a school helping struggling readers and instill a love of reading in each student I work with, while continuing to coach CrossFit in my spare time!

Why do you like coaching:What brings me the most joy as a coach is seeing that same surprise on a member’s face when he or she PRs a lift or gets his or her first strict pull up. I was born to be a teacher and I feel most jubilant when something I have done has helped someone or enriched someone’s learning experience.
