The rumors are true. Nick is entering corporate America!!

Nick was basically CrossFit Southie’s first ever member. He came in for his first “trial” session when a bunch of us were throwing down on a Sunday doing the Lumberjack 20 WOD, before the box officially opened. At that time Nick was just starting his second year of law school, and was eager to find a Box after breaking the rower at his local Globo Gym.  From the very beginning Nick was a major part of the CFS community. Nick participated in every social event (shocker), competition, and basically any time we needed a helping hand (painting the original Southie Green, laying mats down, hanging ropes and basically anything we asked).   After a year and half of dominating the noon class, Nick became a part-time coach. Once Law School finished up (December 2012) Nick became a full-time staffer here at CFS.  Since he has developed into a dedicated coach and we have watched him grow into a mature adult (depends on the day).  He now will be finishing up his last day this Saturday, May 24th.

We are extremely happy for Nick, he has been working towards this new job opportunity for a long time! Please make sure you give him a big hairy bear hug, maybe followed with a double handed butt clench? Fortunately for all, Nick’s new place of employment is in the Seaport. So instead of leading the class, you might find DD sweating, panting and making gorilla noises right beside you. It has been a pleasure having Nick as part of the CFS team, and his daily presence will be missed!!  We love you Coach DeDonno!
