Cynthia Wright

Coach Cyn is a tristate native, growing up in Madison, New Jersey and living in Manhattan since 2014. Cyn played softball for the University of Pennsylvania and then spent 5 years living in San Francisco, where she discovered CrossFit and rugby. Cyn played rugby for 9 years in the Women’s Premiere League, winning several national titles, traveling internationally for tournaments, and attending recruitment camps for the USA National Team.

When returning from the west coast, Cyn discovered CrossFit NYC, ironically, through Groupon. Within a month of joining, Cyn’s heart was won over by the community. Simply being a member wasn’t enough, so Cyn decided to join the CFNYC Coaching Mentorship program. Fast forward 300 hundred mentorship hours and 2 years of coaching CrossFit and now Cyn teaches 10-15 classes a week, while also working full time as a Video Producer for IBM.

When Cyn isn’t coaching or working, she can be found training for Strongman. Cyn has attended both Strongman Nationals and Strongman Worlds, and is gunning for her procard as a professional Strongman athlete.
