Read below to learn a little more about Giulia:

In West Philadelphia, born and raised, I certainly did spend most of my days on the playground. An athlete from a young age (at 3 I was the only one on my tee-ball team who ran to 1st base and not 3rd after a hit!), I played any sport I could- basketball, baseball, soccer, field hockey and lacrosse. I did try gymnastics once, but after my first class the instructor told my mom I should stick to “field sports”. After a successful high school athletic career, I attended Susquehanna University in Selinsgrove, PA.  A 4-year starter on the lacrosse team, I was also a two-time All-American goalie and in 2013 I was inducted into the Susquehanna University Sports Hall of Fame. I currently own four school records: saves (773), save percentage (.593), lowest goals-against average (8.17) and wins (45),and hold the top three spots in single-season saves and save percentage, and finished my career with a 45-19 record.

After college, I struggled to find something to satiate my competitive appetite. I tried dodgeball, football, and softball leagues; and while they were a ton of fun, I still wasn’t satisfied. I tried to workout in Globo gyms, but something was missing.  In 2011, a friend opened a CrossFit Box and after just one WOD, I was hooked! The love story has continued full speed ahead since then. While I love training, it is even better to coach others and watch CrossFit transform their lives just as it did mine. My favorite WODs are anything that involve double-unders and hang cleans or hang snatches. My lease favorite WOD is anything that involves running! My full-time job is in Real Estate/Property Management, but when I’m not working or at the box you can find me kicking it around the Main Line with my French Bulldog, Polpetta.
