Coach Toli has always been passionate about sports. In high school he had the chance to play basketball, baseball and football and has been blessed with the opportunity to be coached by some of the greatest coaches around. After graduating high school Toli still managed to remain active through global gyms and recreational sports and never felt satisfied through these activities, and the environment just simply sucked. No matter how hard he tried he would get injured or hit a plateau really fast and never move past it. After always being tired never able to be anywhere close the best shape of my life... until he tried Crossfit in 2009.
Just like everyone else he was immediately hooked to it and started seeing results quickly. It has been one of the best decisions he says he has made in his life. He loves the friendly supportive environment and the attitude of the people in the Crossfit box. "It is a community of some of the best people and it feels like a second family"
Through the Level 1 Crossfit Certification seminar at NorCal Crossfit 2012 he had the chance to be trained by some of the best like Adrian Bozman, Jason Khalipa and Michael Giardineri and Neil Maddox. Through them he was able to not only improve his skills in Crossfit but also improve his coaching abilities so that he can pass their wisdom onto others effectivly. Toli is a Crossfit Level 2 Trainer and holds a Crossfit WeightLifting Trainer Certificate.
"My number 1 focus is to teach you the technique and fundamentals of Crossfit. It is my belief that once an individual masters the basics of Crossfit in gymnastics, weightlifting and running through consistent training he or she will transform their own body in ways they never thought possible." Toli focuses on health because he believes that good health relieves stress and worry. He urges others just try it. Through controlled functional movements performed at high intensity and simple healthy diet, it is his goal to help you find the best shape of your life.
