MARIA BRUNO

CrossFit Level 1 Instructor

Maria is an assistant coach at Carlisle CrossFit. When she is not at her full-time job as a professor at Dickinson College, you will find her at Carlisle CrossFit training and being motivated by the positive atmosphere provided by its coaches and members. Maria found CrossFit in 2010 having just finished grad school and post-docs and looking for a way to stay in shape. She quickly discovered that it also reignited her love for competitive sport, which was an important part of her life before pursuing her academic career. Maria made incredible improvements as part of a regular CrossFit programming for over 5 years before she turned to Brute Strength programming in 2015 when she decided to pursue CrossFit as a sport as a Master’s athlete. In the CrossFit Open, she has consistently placed in the top 200 in the world for women 40-44 years old, and has finished the Master’s Online Qualifier in the top 80 three years in a row. Her goal is to finish in the top 20 so that she can compete at the CrossFit Games! Maria has learned the most about coaching CrossFit by being an athlete herself and taking in everything she can from the excellent coaches at boxes she frequents across the country and the amazing Brute Strength staff. She loves to share this information with members of the Carlisle CrossFit community, especially anything related to gymnastics and warm ups!
