Joseph Pelicano

Credentials:

CF-L1

Favorite movement:

The snatch, of course.

How long you’ve been doing CF & why:

I’ve been doing CrossFit since 2015. I started because I wanted to get fitter for my job, but it quickly evolved into a love of moving and learning that improving is an endless process.

What’s your favorite part about coaching:

I love coaching our athletes on olympic lifting, the place where strength and athleticism meet in the beautiful symphony of well-timed movement and power. Whether it’s a newbie learning the basics or an experienced lifter trying to perfect their technique, it never gets old.

Favorite cheat meal:

Bratwursts.

Life outside of the gym:

I work in law enforcement, dabble in nutrition coaching, try to constantly learn through reading, watch the St. Louis Cardinals, and drink lots of black coffee.
