During the USLA Nationals in 2008 he took 6th in the 2k beach run and 10th in 2009 and 2010. Since starting CrossFit, Pat is no longer a 1-trick pony and has become a high level sprinter in addition to his distance running skills. In 2011 his 4x100m relay team took 4th in the nation and then made the podium with a 3rd place finish in 2012. In 2013, Pat hooked up with Ian in his event the Landline Rescue Race. For their debut as a team they made the podium with a 3rd place finish. In 2015 his team won the landline rescue race for USLA National Championship. He has contributed greatly to 5 of Smith Points 8 National Championship teams.

In 2012 Pat helped lead the CrossFit Long Island Competition team to a strong 7th Place finish out of over 130 teams that started the event.

Pat has also been surfing since he was 13 years of age and considers it, like CrossFit, one of his true passions.

Pat thanks CrossFit for everything it has given him and knows that it will be part of his life forever.

Domenique DeRosa         co-owner

* CrossFit Level 2 Trainer
* CrossFit Gymnastics
* CrossFit Mobility
* Carl Paoli's Freestyle Connection Seminar

Domenique competed in the sport of gymnastics for fourteen years. During high school she competed nationally for Gold Medal Gymnastics Center. Four of those years she earned a spot to represent Region 6 and compete at the Junior Olympic National Championships. During her senior year she received a full athletic scholarship to attend Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana.

During her collegiate years she was an uneven bars and balance beam specialist who would be in the lead off position for her team during the 2009 season. Unfortunately Domenique suffered a career ending injury during her sophomore year.

She was fortunate enough though, to stay and complete her degree while being a student assistant coach for her team. Upon graduation in the summer of 2012 she found crossfit looking for a post-collegiate sport. When she walked through the doors of CFLI she knew she had found her calling.

In 2015 Domenique made her winning debut on the Suffolk Theater stage for the first ever tribal games. On June 24, 2016 she became the Tribal Games III champion after qualifying to the final round of The Bracket.

By having a gymnastics background this was an easy transition for her, but now she specializes in helping EVERYONE adapt to CrossFit, no matter age, shape, or background.

After completing her Level 1 Certification she plans to further her knowledge in the sport of CrossFit, especially the gymnastics aspects.
