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, and his programming has us completely hooked on his approach to CrossFit. He was CrossFit Fringe’s first full-time staff hire. Angelo has used functional strength and conditioning training for the past decade 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 of 22nd. Angelo also followed the Big Dawg blog (think O.P.T/OPEX and James Fitzgerald) for 3 years and helped to oversee the ‘Will’ program of the blog (geared towards professional athletes/CrossFitters) as a ‘Group Leader.’

Angelo’s accomplishments also extend into business, 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 Elite level athletes including: Division 1 collegiate athletes, semi-professional football players, national level triathlon athletes, world ranked powerlifters, CrossFit athletes and general fitness enthusiasts.  While working in Utah with Massif Athletics (Nick Fowler, Brute Strength)  he assisted with a peak 50+ athlete individual designs, on top of managing his own 20 athletes.  This is where his specialty lies.  For the past decade Angelo has written assessments and individualized / group programs for a variety of needs.  He is our lead for our class programming here in Columbia and continues to write individualized programs for athletes, here and abroad.
