Coach Kenny Olmeda loves talking fitness while helping our members smash goals they never imagined they could achieve. Placing third in two Strongman competitions, Kenny was a teacher in the NYC public school system for 11 years. CrossFit opened up a new path of learning for him. “I had so many questions and the coaches at NECF were always willing to engage me in conversation,” he says. “Manny provided me with an amazing opportunity to become an apprentice at NECF. After five months, he offered me a position co-coaching the 5:30am class with Coach Deb. Since then, it’s been phenomenal learning from Coach Deb and coaching the amazing 5:30am crew.” He specializes in Strongman competition and powerlifting.
