Meet Your Coach – Priscilla Cassimiro

By: 0

Say hello to Priscilla! She and Danilo came in hot from Brazil last summer and have grown to be mainstays of the CFE community. But you already know that. What you may not know is that prior to moving to NH, Priscilla was a CrossFit coach. 

Which is one small reason we’re happy to announce the addition of Priscilla to the team of CFE coaches! She’s a master technician of movement and is looking forward to sharing her love and passion of fitness with you all. Additionally and most importantly, Priscilla is passionate about helping. She’s probably helped you in a class already. Simply out of the kindness of her own heart. 

And now it’s official! You’ll be seeing Priscilla in your classes over the coming weeks as she rolls through training and we learn from each other.  

Welcome to the team, Priscilla. We’re so excited to work with you!

WHAT DO YOU SPECIALIZE IN? I love gymnastics! I know it’s really challenging, but is so much fun to see the results when you dedicate yourself to it. And I also love pizza, if that matters somehow.. and cookies.

WHAT ARE YOU PASSIONATE ABOUT? I am passionate with MOVEMENT! The uncountable ways that we can express ourselves, through our body, and how it makes life so much better.  

WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO MOST ABOUT COACHING YOUR ATHLETES? My goal is to not only assist on their needs, not only to teach what I know, but to be part of the life changing phenomenon that CrossFit allows when ordinary people find out they can do extraordinary things.

WHAT IS YOUR ATHLETIC BACKGROUND? As far as I know I was always up to something active.. As a kid I was once a gymnast, a swimmer, a belly dancer at some point, and then I had a few years lifting weights as gym rat. But in 2017 I fell in love with Crossfit and never looked back!

HOW DID YOU END UP A CROSSFIT COACH? I was finishing my degree in Exercise Science when was invited by the gym I used to go in Brazil, to be a trainee with their team. Saying yes to that was one of the best choices in my life, from that moment until today, I don’t know anything that fulfills my heart better than coaching.

WHAT BROUGHT YOU HERE? Community! In CFE I could find that perfect friendly and passionate environment; that fun energy and vibe that I think a gym can’t live without. I felt it right on the first day.

WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE QUOTE? “Better than yesterday, worse than tomorrow”. Because I think life is all about becoming the best version of ourselves. Who we are as a friend, as a professional, as a partner, or with our family. No matter where or when, we should always, try to be better.

IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE YOU’D LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU? Yes! I am really excited about becoming part of the CFE team and can’t wait to share more moments with this community that has been so great to me. It’s like a dream coming true!
