Brian Wallace

CrossFit Coach

Having played team sports throughout his childhood and up to present day fitness and being active has been a large part of Brian’s life. Brian grew up playing football, baseball, basketball, ice hockey, soccer and tennis. While at college Brian took on a new challenge of playing rugby. After college Brian like most wanted to stay active and joined the local gym and to stay active and then received his AMFPT (American Muscle & Fitness) certificate in 2000 so he could train and share his passion for fitness with others. As Brian moved through his 20’s long hours in the gym became more difficult and personal training took a back seat to his full time job. By the time Brian hit his early 30’s he was married and had two children and as his family grew his fitness level decreased. Enter CrossFit. During the summer of 2008 while being a member of his local gym Brian was introduced to CrossFit. It took one workout “death by the kettlebell” and Brian was hooked. All the long boring workouts in the standard gym setting never tested him like that workout did. After several months of CrossFit WOD’s Brian saw his fitness level sky rocket and has never looked back to the old methods of fitness and working out. Brian was never interested in long distance running but thanks to CrossFit and the confidence it gave him Brian completed his first half marathon in March of 2009 which he completed in 1 hour 52 minutes and since then has done several more races and more scheduled for 2011. Brian’s addiction for CrossFit lead him to get his level one CrossFit Certification in January 2010 so he can share his passion for CrossFit with others by coaching CrossFit classes at CrossFit Newtown. Brian’s hobbies other than CrossFit is spending time with his wife Renae and his children. Brian also enjoys playing sports whenever possible.
