Tell us a little bit about yourself:
My name is Anthony Gnoato, I’m 21 years of age and currently pursuing my dream of becoming a professional CrossFit athlete
What motivates you to stay healthy?
- I really enjoy the feeling and looks that come from being healthy so this has always been what’s motivated me
What is your occupation? What inspired you to pick this profession?
I coach CrossFit at the affiliate CrossFit 604, when I became passionate about the sport it encouraged me to want to help others also which lead me to this profession
What is something that you have done recently to help others?
Helping others is in my job description so I feel very blessed I get to help other daily and have a big impact on their fitness and health goals
Can you tell us a little bit about your athletic background/what sports or type of fitness you do?
My athletic background started with playing soccer and running long distance track and field competitively. I am currently training / competing in CrossFit
Do you have a life-changing experience related to your athletic experience that shaped your future self or future direction?
The most life-changing experience I had was severely underperforming in my first ever CrossFit competition and learning that I wasn’t nearly as good as I thought. This experience has driven me to never feel that way again
What would you say to someone who is trying to start living a healthier lifestyle?
Start by making small changes, once you become consistent with the small change then start to add more and more. Drastic change usually leads to failure because of too high expectations.
Do you set goals? Will you share those goals with us?
I usually don’t set numerical goals, ex. rather than say I want to lift x amount of weight, I would instead focus on what are things I can do to help me my lift more weight, which might be eating enough, sleeping enough etc…..
What are 5 quick facts that your best friend would use to introduce you?
Hard working, passionate, easy going, motivating, funny
