A lifelong soccer player growing up, Brian got into fitness and exercise in college. However, the traditional globo-gym workouts become monotonous and he lost motivation.
Brian decided to join his long-time friend Jason Manchester (fellow coach at ICF) for a workout in his garage... "Some CrossFit workout named Fran." He was immediately hooked and looked for a local CrossFit gym. Born and raised in Cranston, he searched for the closest, and found OSCF. Brian joined in 2012 and has never looked back, continuing to be a member of the community for over seven years.
As his love for CrossFit grew, he obtained his Level 1 certification in 2014 and began coaching classes at OSCF. As an athlete growing up, the competitiveness of the sport drove Brian to work hard. In 2015, he was a member of Ocean States Finest at the East Regional where they placed 9th overall. You can typically catch coach Brian in the gym bright and early with the morning crew.
Brian has a bachelors degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Rhode Island and masters in Engineering Management from Kettering University. He works locally in the medical device industry.
