A member of CrossFit MASS since its inception, Alessandra has built up nearly a decade of first-hand knowledge and experience to share with her athletes. Alessandra was a high school athlete who turned to CrossFit as a way to up her game. The combination of personalized programming plus group classes that offered varied training modalities ultimately landed her on the varsity soccer team, just a year after she was cut from junior varsity. In fact, tryouts for the varsity team felt “easy”. This left her with no doubt of the power of CrossFit. Alessandra works hard to understand and appreciate each individual’s personal journey. Whether you are training to compete, gearing up for a Spartan race, or trying to maintain a consistent, productive routine even with a busy personal and professional schedule, her goal is to help you reach yours. A hallmark of her coaching style is not letting you get caught up in what you can’t do, but celebrating what you can do. You’ll make gains quickly and safely. Known for a hard work ethic, positive attitude, and drive to continue learning, Alessandra is an integral member of CrossFit MASS. Her fascination with coffee, cats, and boy bands only adds to her charm.
She holds Level 2 CrossFit and CrossFit Kids certifications, Level 1 Precision Nutrition and has attended multiple workshops in Olympic Weightlifting, Kettlebell, and Clean and Snatch.
She is currently working on her Pre &Postnatal Certification.
