Scott Leonard

COACH


Scott was born and raised in New York state along the Canadian border. In this frozen area of New York Scott found his passion for ice hockey and the outdoors. This quickly translated into becoming very active in sports of any kind and the drive to stay fit. This drive continued into a college career in Ice Hockey and includes a National Championship. After College, Scott stayed involved in sports and athletics for 30+ years in various facets; coaching, father, and athlete. Scott continues his interest in athletics and fitness in his continuous efforts to coach ice hockey and lacrosse.

Scott served as an instructor at the Connecticut State Police academy for a three year tenure. He continued his education in the fitness realm and helped train some of the finest most dedicated men and women in law enforcement. Scott along with a couple other instructors began to transition the Connecticut State Police Academy from the traditional cardio/calisthenics style of physical fitness training to a more functional fitness style curriculum. Scott is now returning to the Connecticut State Police Academy to become the Recruit Coordinator.

Scott began his CrossFit career in 2008 in a “self-taught” atmosphere by following crossfit.com. He quickly realized that the core values of CrossFit for fitness mirrored his own. After trying other avenues CrossFit was a natural fit for someone who enjoys pushing their limits and being part of a close community.

Scott took this new found appreciation of fitness and CrossFit and dove in head first. Scott joined Romeo Athletics (CrossFit Revelation) in 2010 and has since gotten his Level I Certificate.
