Rich Borgatti, Owner and Trainer

Owner and Trainer, OCR and Endurance Coach


After high school sports (Cross Country, Indoor and Outdoor Track and Field) my fitness took a back seat to college classes. After college I spent about 10 or so years in the computer industry sitting at a desk. This lead to a decline in health and fitness. As I closed in on my mid twenties I had finally had enough and started training in Martial arts and started working out at gyms. I discovered CrossFit online in 2007 while researching Kettlebell and sandbag workouts. I remember thinking it was a bit crazy, but it intriged me. After a year of reading all the websites and trying to do the workouts on my own in a park I went to CrossFit Boston in June of 2008 and found out what CrossFit really was. Neal Thompson the Owner had me do a 7 min workout that left me flat on my back and it was everything I was looking for. It made me remember what it was like to be an athlete. I had recently turned 30 and was working in the IT field behind a desk all day. I was getting slower, bigger and unhappier by the day and needed to change. CrossFit changed my life.

My coaching specialty is Obstacle Course Racing and Endurance athletes.

I work with remote clients and on site to help improve their racing times and fix up any weak areas.
