One look at Stacey’s resume in competitive functional fitness and one is immediately wowed. She has competed at the highest levels of sport, having placed 9th and 12th at the Reebok CrossFit Games in 2009 and 2011 respectively. Since 2008, Stacey has competed at the CrossFit Regionals 9 times, 8 times as an individual athlete placing in the top 10 for 7 of 8 years, and once as a member of Team Lando (2015). Her 9 consecutive years qualifying in the Northeast is unmatched by any female athlete since the start of the Open system in 2011.

What is truly special about Stacey, however, is as a coach she shines twice as bright as she does as an athlete. She is the leader of a coaching staff that has been awarded “Best of Boston” by Boston Magazine multiple years, and individually is the best group fitness coach in the city and arguably in existence. She is unmatched in her ability to educate and inspire all comers, from reluctant newbies to proven competitors like herself. Truly part of the heart and soul of CrossFit Lando, Stacey embodies the spirit of what makes a great coach.

The combination of teaching and sports has lead Ryan to a love for CrossFit and fitness. This quickly evolved into a desire to teach others the same love he has for fitness which we gladly took on at CrossFit Lando.

Lauren has been a part of our community since our first year, joining as a member in 2013. She has been a special part of our community from the beginning, seeing a major transformation as a person and athlete…just see her picture on our before and after board. She also introducing us to her then boyfriend, now husband, Kyle Hicks, who is now known as Coach Kyle who has been a firm part of our stable of coaches for 3+ years.

She comes to us with a wealth of experience in the health and wellness industry.

A lifelong athlete, Courtney moved to Boston from Chicago in January 2016.  Her love of competition, like many, lead her to CrossFit Lando where she quickly fell in love with the community and sport.

Courtney graduated from University of Kansas with a degree in History. She loves helping others reach their full potential and is fascinated with the many different ways to cue athletes to reach that potential. She currently works at Education First in Cambridge and loves dropping in to boxes overseas.

Sean’s fitness journey began after graduating from UMass Dartmouth in 2013 with a bachelor’s degree in marketing. He has been coaching in some way ever since. With a keen ability to connect and bring out the best in others, he dove headfirst into the world of CrossFit and coaching in it.  Quickly becoming an enthusiast by studying videos, reading articles, and practicing functional movements, he learned quickly that he had a true passion for the sport that he wanted to instill in others.

Outside of the gym Sean is a competitive Magic The Gathering Player and of course, a Celtics Superfan.

Dan is another Coach who cut his teeth as a member at Lando for years before jumping into the teaching realm. He found CrossFit when he was self described as “50 pounds over weight eating sandwiches and drinking beer” and needed a change. Now he is one of the hardest working around the gym, making him a natural leader as a Coach.

He is a native of New Hampshire and attended Endicott College both for undergrad and his MBA which he finished in 2010. Dan is lucky where he truly loves his job and where he works. He was one of the original employees of CarGurus and still works there, now as a Senior Sales Manager.

Dan has some interesting athletic/competition parts to his life including, but not limited to, playing on a nationally touring softball team which had his Dad as a teammate, and being a nationally ranked 9 pin bowler, almost going to college for the sport back in the day. Not to be forgotten is he was a sponsored paintball player and traveled around the country playing in tournaments.

Truly a bit of everything coming from Dan. We are lucky to have such a unique guy as part of our staff and you are to learn from him each week!
