Larry Thomas

Coach

Hometown: Baltimore, MD
Start @ ONE Nation: May 2016

Originally from Baltimore, MD Larry relocated to Massachusetts in 2011 to pursue a career as a strength and conditioning coach. It was about that same time that he stumbled upon CrossFit. He had been a competitive athlete all his life, having played football at the collegiate level, and saw CrossFit as his next great challenge as an athlete. After roughly two years of competing in CrossFit competitions as an athlete, Larry decided he enjoyed it enough to become a CrossFit coach in addition to his work as a strength and conditioning coach. His level 1 CrossFit certification is an addition to his polished credentials; already holding his CSCS and USAW level 1 certifications. In his career as a strength coach Larry has had the fortune of working with and developing some talented athletes from an Olympic skier to NFL players, and some elite level college football and basketball players. As a CrossFit coach, Larry gets most excited when he sees his clients meet goals they didn’t think were possible.
