Like so many CrossFit athletes, Paul’s athletic and competitive background drew him into CrossFit after discovering it almost five years ago. A veteran from both the U.S. Army and Navy, CrossFit Reality’s Head Coach believes one thing: “CrossFit is the best and only way to train.” After suffering tragic injuries to his vertebrae in high school where he wrestled and played soccer, Paul had trouble improving his physical fitness and struggled with traditional methods of weight training. Because of CrossFit’s applications of real-world movements and fitness principles geared for everyday life, Paul began to see his weaknesses get stronger and his strengths just getting better. CrossFit single-handedly revived the competitive spirit that lie within him. “The intensity of CrossFit appeals to me,” he said. “I love the ‘go hard or go home’ mentality as opposed to the mainstream way of working out. We aren’t here just to sit in front of a mirror and flex our muscles; we are here to become better athletes.” Rest assured with Paul Amato as your head coach, you have no choice but to become a better athlete. Paul leads the CrossFit Coaches at CFR and is in charge of the beginners program for all new members of the box.
