Nicole Paserchia : Coach

Nicole Paserchia

Coach

After bouncing from gym to gym, trying all types of different workout routines, in June 2013 I found myself completing my first crossfit workout.  Being an athlete my entire life, I was immediately drawn to the competitiveness and team-like aspect crossfit embodied. I knew after that first WOD that I had found a home with CFG. Every day is a new challenge, mental and physical, and the accountability you aquire enduring these workouts with the same group of people everyday is unmatched. Two years later, I am thrilled to become a member of the coaching staff here at CFG and am looking forward to the new experiences and knowledge this opportunity will bring me.
