We’re excited to announce that Celeste Viggiano is joining ICA as the newest member of our coaching team! Celeste brings significant experience as a coach and CrossFit athlete and will be a truly valuable addition to ICA. Here are some Q&As to help you get to know Coach Celeste a little better:
How long have you been doing CrossFit? I am celebrating 11 years of CrossFit experience this fall. I actually have the original paper copy of the waiver that I signed when I first started, dated November 21, 2011.
How long have you been a coach? I got my L-1 in the summer of 2019 and started coaching that fall, so almost three years. My experience in coaching inspired me to return to school to continue to educate myself at Montgomery County Community College. I am receiving my Associate’s Degree in Exercise Science and Wellness at the end of May. I also have a bachelor’s degree from West Chester University in Sociology.
Kids/Family? My husband Pete and I have a son, Antonio (4 years old) and a daughter, Twila (1.5 years old).
What is your favorite move in the gym? Strict pull ups, no doubt! [Editor’s Note: Clearly a match for ICA!]
What is your favorite workout? Murph, I like the workout, and even more so I love Hero WODs. We are so fortunate to be able to show up and put in hard work to honor the memory of those who have sacrificed everything for our freedoms. The event of Murph every Memorial day is one of my favorite CrossFit traditions.
Any hobbies? Exercise and food! I love working out and I love cooking as well as eating. I also love spending time outdoors, running or hiking (which more recently has turned into swings and slides on the playground or playing in mud and puddles at the river).
Coach Celeste will be integrating into the schedule over the next few weeks. Make sure to say hi and introduce yourself when you see her!
Workout of the Day
Split Jerk 2×2 (75%), 2×2 (80%), 2×2 (85%)
Then complete NFT

WOD Notes: It’s a great day to work some split jerk technique! If you’re feeling on fire, you can try to alternate feet each rep although it is not necessary if you have a preferred stance.
Community Notes: Happy Birthday Dana Schwartz!
