RRH Wellness Wednesday: Nurse Trudy & Brickyard CrossFit Owner & Coach Lisa

RRH Wellness Wednesdays feature Rochester Regional clinicians and experts sharing their experiences and knowledge in an effort to improve your health and wellness, and to help connect you with specialists when you’re interested in individualized care. Check each week for the new topic! 

Wellness Wednesday theme of the month – Physical Activity week #2 

Lifestyle Medicine and Oncology Certified Registered Nurse Trudy Arsenault, will be joined by Brickyard owner and CrossFit Masters Certified Coach Lisa Pietrangeli (specializing in CrossFit ages 60+) for Wellness Wednesday on 3/13.

Lisa has coached seniors consistently for over 2 decades starting with Silver Sneakers and then earning her CrossFit Masters certification after opening Brickyard CrossFit. Unlike many programs designed for the 60+ demographic, CrossFit is the only one that consistently supports Seniors with programming that actually improves overall health, strength, stamina, etc. rather than just sustain these vital abilities. Brickyard’s programming is particularly unique in that it is designed to effectively fight aging. Directly from Coach Lisa: “We have seen our Masters go off medications, resolve chronic injuries, overcome limitations, and completely reverse some medical diagnosis. It is THAT effective.”

Lisa will talk about How and Why CrossFit, in particular at Brickyard, really do change and save lives. Plus, it’s fun! The community of people and the supportive, encouraging culture that is so important to Brickyard will ensure you feel right at home in no time. You will be part of a community with others who are in your same stage of life and who have the same goals as you do.

 Is CrossFit intimidating? Sure it is. We get that. But trust us that once you walk in the door, all of that goes away because you will feel safe, cared-for, and quickly enjoy the results that you see in yourself and your health.

Most CrossFit gyms in the nation, Rochester included, do not offer classes specifically designed for the Senior population. Brickyard is so unique and right here in the JCC for you!

Please join Nurse Trudy and Coach Lisa as they lead a demonstration and discussion about the importance of having fun and being with peers while doing physical activity. And how Brickyard CrossFit is so much more than 30-somethings flipping tires!
