Gino Andres Escalante Leite is one of the Head Coaches at Reebok CrossFit Back Bay. Gino has been coaching with the Back Bay team since they opened in January of 2012. Before that Gino coached at CrossFit Providence for three years and was co-owner of CrossFit Newport back in 2010.

CG was not born with every athletic gift known to man. It took a lot of trial and error, hard work, and determination to excel in a demanding program like CrossFit. This grit has been one of his greatest tools in coaching. Knowing and relating to everyone from those that struggle to those who excel, Gino can and has coached them all.

“Making people comfortable outside of their element is one of the most important aspects of coaching and improving those who never thought of themselves as athletes. Knowing how much you can push and how much to demand is a fantastic marker of a driving someone who may have reached their limits.”

At Reebok CrossFit Back Bay, CG has been doing the WOD programming that has lead to the improvement in fitness in hundreds and hundreds of people. He is also in charge of the gymnastics programming and the daily blog posts that you see every day.

Before starting with CrossFit, CG graduated cum laude from Umass Dartmouth in Spanish, Portuguese, and Economics. He also swam for four years and was captain of the Mens swim team during his Senior year. Gino has competed at the Regional level of CrossFit with the CrossFit Newport team in 2011 and the Reebok CrossFit Back Bay teams in 2012/13.

“My goal is to make you a fitter, healthier person in the safest / most fun way possible”.
