Coach’s Corner – Introducing Head Coach Frank Minervini

Head Coach Frank Minervini

We’re very excited to announce our newest Head Coach – Frank Minervini!

You’ll see Frank’s smiling face in front of classes starting today.  If he’s not coaching, you’ll probably see him here anyway as he seems to really like to train and plans on basically living at the box.

Frank is new to Southie but not new to coaching.  Frank has his CrossFit Level 3 certification and has a real passion for CrossFit and helping others and we are super excited to have him as a part of our team.

Check out his Coach’s Corner interview below!

Classes you currently Coach?

Years as a CrossFitter and Coach?
I have been dabbling in the CrossFits since 2013 in high school then off and on until I went to college when it all got serious. I have been coaching full-time since 2019 at multiple gyms across the years.

Your favorite part about being a CrossFit Coach?
Seeing people achieve things they never thought they could do before walking into the building.

Your Favorite WOD and Movement?
FRAN is my absolute favorite workout…its only like 2 minutes. And Any movement I am not good at is my favorite. All about getting better at my weaknesses.

 


Athletic Background?
In High School I played soccer, basketball, ran track, tennis, and played some golf!

Small piece of advice for newbies and Veteran Athletes?
Both Vets and Newbies listen to your coaches! Scaling is not a crime, it is built to maximize your results and make you better!

Fun Fact people don’t know about you?
I can burp on command! It is gross I know but that’s all I got.

What do you enjoy most about CrossFit?
What I enjoy most about CrossFit, is the community that is built on enduring the same workout no matter the scales and surviving to the end full of joy and relief! I enjoy that we are all here for a purpose to reach goals and to get better!
