Kathryn Leibfied
Kathryn found CrossFit in 2009 when road races and regular gym routines had lost their novelty after college.

She had always been a competitive athlete and found that CrossFit satisfied both her fitness goals and her competitive drive. In 2010 Kathryn competed as part of the NSCF team at the North East Regionals and then in 2011 she helped the CrossFit Route 1 team place 2nd in the North East Regionals, and 17th at the CrossFit Games.

Through CrossFit and its community Kathryn began to reassess her own definition of health and began to realize that being well didn’t mean you weren’t sick. After 8 years teaching Biology in the public school system, shefound passions incongruent with her career.

In 2011 Kathryn earned her Level 1 CrossFit certification and in 2012 she graduated from the Institute of Integrated Nutrition as a Certified Health Coach (CHC). Through her health coaching practice, Intrinsic Health, Kathryn has combined a passion for health and fitness with her teaching skills.

She guides and supports her clients in implementing the necessary, sustainable dietary and lifestyle changes that create a true and lasting health.

Leigha Maciel

Born and raised in Melrose MA. I was a national gymnast through high school. A Boston College psychology graduate I started coaching gymnastics and working with troubled children. My desire To coach and make people better at what they are passionate about outgrew my desire to work within my field. I found a coaching job working for a all inclusive resort around the world in Club Med. I started coaching and performing flying trapeze and aerial arts to children and adults. 

Moving back to the states after the birth of my daughter Isabella I started into CrossFit looking for something to get my body back into shape. The competition and family community/lifestyle fit perfectly into my life and I fell in love. Two years later I had the itch to coach again and Crossfit was the perfect match.
