Coach’s Corner – Coach Chad Kucera
About Chad Kucera
I’m originally from Upstate NY (Troy) and graduated from Lemoyne College (Syracuse, NY) in 2005 with a BS in Business Administration. I moved to Boston four years ago seeking a change in scenery and to be closer to family and have loved every second. For the last 12 years I’ve worked for three different banks (both locally and in NY) holding many different positions within those organizations.
Most recently, I worked as an Operations Associate for Eastern Bank here in Southie for 3.5 years. Although the experience has been positive, I want more out of life and my career. Thus, I decided to invest in myself, go back to school and get my MBA at Suffolk University this fall.
What do you do in your free time?
In my free time I’m very active and enjoy all forms of fitness and exercise but love to also be close to the water or beach as much as possible during the summer months and snowboard in the winter. I couldn’t be more excited to be apart of this awesome community. CrossFit is a passion of mine which I have seen first hand save people’s lives and bring out things in them they never knew they were capable of (including me).
The staff at CF Southie is diverse group of incredible athletes, personalities, attitudes, and individuals all pulling in the same direction – making each day for its members better/more fit than the last. The best part about coaching, in my opinion, is I personally get great satisfaction in seeing an athlete succeed. Whether it’s hitting a PR or having that “light bulb” moment when a cue or tip I gives them works. There’s no better feeling.
Please don’t be afraid to say hello or approach me with concerns or simply need a different set of eyes for your training. I’m always willing to help.
