About Aaron

A native of Connecticut, Aaron grew up with a very active lifestyle. Whether it was playing baseball for 11 months of the year until he was 18, or hiking, swimming, snowboarding, or just messing around in the backyard, Aaron was always moving. During college he played almost every intramural sport available – soccer, basketball, flag football, volleyball, kickball and even dodgeball. 

After graduating he continued to stay active while also visiting a “globo gym” three-to-four times each week. Then one day in 2010 a co-worker mentioned this “CrossFit” thing. Immediately intrigued by the prospect of cross-training and “something different,” that afternoon Aaron walked into CrossFit New Haven just a few weeks after opening their doors. Interestingly enough, he wasn’t too impressed with the workout right away after finishing. “Then I woke up the next morning and was sore in places I didn’t know I could be sore in,” he said upon attempting to get out of bed. “Maybe there’s something to this then,” he thought next. So he tried it again and has never looked back.

“It’s the community and the people that I love the most. I feel like I’m on a team again. It’s also different everyday so it’s impossible to get bored. We’re a bunch of people trying to be healthy, improve our lifestyle and have a good time – and I can’t get enough of that!” Aaron is always happy to chat about CrossFit, sports (especially the Red Sox and Saints), food and almost any activity that involves being outside. “I am thrilled to be coaching with the CFNH Coaching Staff and am excited to help people accomplish things they never thought possible.”
