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.
