Owner / Head Coach
Ron is a connoisseur of sorts, most of which have nothing to do with anything fancy. He is a child of the 80′s, raised by the Autobots and trained by the All American GI-Joe.
He likes to keep things simple, and has always involved himself in athletic endeavors. While growing up he played soccer, or at least, chased the ball around and tackled people whenever he had the chance. As he became a young adult, he found the grungy weight room in one of the most dangerous schools in NY, Great Neck North High. It was here that he learned how to lift weights poorly, in Diesel jeans none the less.
At some point, he grew weary of the boring routine that he performed millions of times and decided to learn how to kill a person with his bare hands. He became heavily involved in Bruce Lee’s Jeet Kune Do and studied and practiced obsessively. One time he crushed a unicorn with his bare hands and drank it’s blood, although there is no supporting evidence of this claim.
A few a years later, a friend introduced him to CrossFit. Since then, Ron has become fully engaged in the CrossFit lifestyle, which means lots of meat and fitness.
Together with his partner Mike, they have fully embraced the CrossFit community even further by opening up CrossFit Greenpoint.
When not coaching, you can find Ron lifting weights, browsing the internet for cute pictures of cats, and organizing clutter into matching shapes and sizes.
