Coach Richie Lamarra started CrossFitting 6 years ago, like so many us, when a friend introduced him to the sport for the first time. Richie says he’s been hooked ever since. Richie spent much of his early career in the military, but now spends his days helping Tampa Bay residents find their perfect home as a certified realtor.
Richie has a special way of making everyone in the CrossFit9 community feel like family, whether it’s their first class or their 500th, likely a product of his huge extended family in New Jersey. “My mom is one of seven,” Richie says, “We have like 30 cousins.”
