Angelo comes to CrossFit Fringe from Chicago via Utah. After a lengthy chat with Tyler, he decided that Columbia just might be a good fit for his ideas and methodology to continue to develop and flourish. Angelo has used functional strength and conditioning training for the past 8 years to train himself and others.  Athletically, his background stems from playing College D1 MCLA Lacrosse, kickboxing, and CrossFit.  High honors were earned for lacrosse, a 2nd place podium finish in an international kickboxing competition, and of course having competed at the North Central CrossFit Regional as an Individual in 2011, 2012, and 2013, with a top overall finish was 22nd. Angelo also followed the Big Dawg blog (think O.P.T and Michael Fitzgerald) for 3 years and helping to oversee the ‘Will’ program of the blog (geared towards professional athletes/CrossFitters) as a ‘Group Leader.’


Angelo’s accomplishments also extend into business, where he owned and ran a strength and conditioning gym in Chicago called Gravity Fitness Strength and Conditioning for 3 years, 2 of which were CrossFit affiliated. Angelo has coached and continues coaching Division 1 collegiate athletes (swimming), semi-professional football players, national level triathlon athletes, world ranked powerlifters, CrossFit athletes and general fitness enthusiasts.  Upon deciding to take his talents to Utah with Massif Athletics (Nick Fowler, Brute Strength)  he assisted a peak 52 athlete individual designs, as well as managing up to 20 athletes of his own. In the past decade, Angelo has worked with, and written, hundreds of individual designs and micro-cycles.
