Maria is a 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! She recently competed at the Granite Games in 2019. 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!

Carlisle CrossFit, in partnership with Deus Ex Machina Fitness and Wellness continually provides additional training and certifications to our coaching staff. We fund their professional development because we believe in the Carlisle CrossFit team and its coaches. Each coach is encouraged to earn at least one additional certification every year, provided by us. We don’t list any certifications here beyond their major qualifying certificate. Don’t be fooled by a long list of “certificates” on a website. Most of what you read there are 2 day courses that are a money maker for another gym. Come into the gym and talk with the coaches. Find out what they know and who they are. We have the right team to help you be what you want to be.
