I’m Vinny, short for Vinicius. Originally from Brazil, I carry on the fitness culture from my family. Growing up everyone in my family did some kind of activity and from a young age I started learning about what I should eat or not. Fast forward to now, and even though I graduated from engineering school, fitness has been in the back of my mind my entire life.

In 2014 I started CrossFit and since then it has been my main hobby and sport. In 2022, I decided to take my Level 1 and started coaching at Grassroots. With the experience of multiple coaches eyes throughout my career looking after me, I developed a strong sense of proper technique and how to recognize and address changes to achieve it. I have also ventured in a few CrossFit competitions in the past and every year sign up for the Crossfit Open as a way to measure progress in myself.

I love all things CrossFit but mostly the daily feeling of progress. I try different cues until you get that perfect snatch, or bar muscle up. If you have any questions on how to improve your technique don’t hesitate to ask me.
