Sofia stumbled upon CrossFit while searching for a workout routine that was more exciting than spending countless hours on the elliptical machine. Not known for her athletic prowess by family and peers, she was humbled by her first On Ramp class in Connecticut. She kept at it, and four years later she has slowly but steadily made her way from beginner, to competent CrossFitter and qualified coach. While old friends and family still find it difficult to believe that Sofia has pull ups, much less sets of them; she finds pride in her ability to come from the background of horseback rider and sporadic tennis player to competitive CrossFitter.
Sofia devotes her time to encouraging and supporting athletes like herself. She specializes in working with athletes of all ages, including young adults, with little to no experience in weightlifting. She also works with complete beginners who need specialized programming to get comfortable with CrossFit. She is available by email for private training at both the Flatiron and Upper West Side locations.
