Journalism & Mass Communication, B.S. | CrossFit Level 2 Trainer | USA Weightlifting Sport Performance Coach
Phil started doing CrossFit in his garage as a form of exercise to become a better athlete and improve his overall level of fitness. Not long after, limitations on equipment and proper technique led him to join Harborside where he instantly fell in love with the structure, coaching and community. Since then, he has embraced the program, constantly pursuing a new level of fitness and living a healthy and active lifestyle.
Prior to CrossFit, Phil’s athletic background includes four years with the St. Bonaventure University Swim Team at the division 1 level. He is also an assistant coach on the Williamsville North High School baseball staff.
He finds the diversity in movements and constantly varied workouts as the most exciting and challenging elements to CrossFit. Every day is an opportunity to learn or practice new skills while increasing overall strength and work capacity, which is a concept he encourages all athletes to appreciate.
Phil enjoys competing locally with other Harborside members and strives to be a good role model for his son and daughter, Pete and Lucy.
