CFE is so grateful to have Gabriel Romero joining our family. Not only is he qualified and accomplished (legit), he’s knowledgeable with a winning personality. This is an exciting chapter in CFE’s continued success as a community of athletes from all walks of life with a shared interest in improving the quality of life.
And an introduction from the man himself, Gabriel:
I have always been an athlete: wrestling, football, and track. When that time came to a close, I was just a regular old gym rat, but at least I stayed active.
In 2010, I discovered CrossFit and it was the perfect fit for me. I fell in love day one! That day one consisted of tabata air squats. I thought, “How hard can this possible be…I mean, air squats? Come on.” Needless to say, I was sore and as a result I was hooked. Since then, I have been an active member and coach.
I was trained by a host of Olympians: Cheryl Hayworth, Natalie and Cody Bergner, Donovan Ford, and Erin Okonik to name a few (doing Crossfit in Colorado Springs has its advantages). I am USA Weightlifting and Crossfit Level 2 Certified.
I competed in the 2015 Crossfit Games in the Masters 40-44 age group. It’s was a long road and what I found is very simply: you can always improve and after 7 years I’m better than I ever have been even though I’m 44.
Attacking weaknesses is fundamental to this sport because everyday varies from the exercises in the workout to the way those exercises make you feel. Everyone that walks in the door has different abilities and different goals. You must always work hard but recognize your limits and learn from people that have knowledge to share. Trust that I will pass this knowledge along to anyone that wants to learn.
