Coach Antonio “Tonio” Paramo
Classification: CrossFit Level 1
Certified: March, 2015
What I love about CrossFit is that ANYONE can do it. The inclusion, not only with the workouts, but inclusion into the community of athletes keeps me coming back.
I have been doing CrossFit for just under two years. My entire CrossFit “career” has been spent at CrossFit 623. My wife, Justine, got me into CrossFit. She had joined and I’ll be honest, my exposure to it at that time was basically none. I knew the myths and teased her about working out. A month into it, I noticed both positive physical and mental changes in her, so I went in, tried it out, got my ass kicked, and never looked back. I had talked about getting my Level 1 certification since my six-month “anniversary” with CrossFit. I finally felt I was ready for it just over a year later in March 2015. What I love about CrossFit is that ANYONE can do it. The inclusion, not only with the workouts, but inclusion into the community of athletes keeps me coming back. Not to mention constantly having a workout kick my butt.
I intend to continue my education with CrossFit-parallel certifications, such as Olympic weightlifting, Level 2, 3, 4 CrossFit certs, etc. Not to mention, continue getting bigger, stronger, and faster.
I just love being active period. Basketball, hiking, running, recently volleyball, etc. I’m very competitive and love competition. As of right now, I’m raising two little ladies outside of being a CF623 trainer. I intend to finish school and then who knows what.
