CrossFit icon is returning to hold clinics in Cayman

CrossFit 7 Mile is bringing one of the sport’s most celebrated trainers over from the U.S. for a series of clinics. 

A week of Workouts of the Day in Paradise is arranged with five-time CrossFit Games competitor, Austin Malleolo, from Dec. 6-13. 

Malleolo is the head coach at Reebok CrossFit ONE, owner of CrossFit One Nation, as well as a member of the CrossFit HQ seminar staff. 

He is also a five times CrossFit Games competitor. Malleolo says he has “a passion for simply making people better, and getting people moving in a way that will lead them to a better quality of life.” 

He has been coaching CrossFit for more than seven years. At the Reebok world HQ in Canton, Massachusetts, he has coached the 1,000-plus employees on campus and converted more than half of them to doing CrossFit. His specialist discipline is deadlifting and his least favorite is power snatches. 

“The WOD in Paradise event is something that we have been working on for a few years,” said CrossFit 7 Mile owner Carl Brenton. “We have gotten to know Austin well and decided to put together a trip down here for regular CrossFit athletes to get to work with him in a great location.” 

He added that his members are “very excited to have Austin down here.” Malleolo visited a few years ago as well with another CrossFit Games athlete, Spencer Hendel. 

“The timing works well for the hotels. We are promoting this to bring visitors to the island,” said Brenton. Their goal is 40. 

“The trip provides tourism to the island, a chance for regular CrossFitters to connect with a Games athlete and a chance to showcase Cayman as a tourist destination for CrossFitters.” 

Brenton added, “Not only is Austin a phenomenal CrossFit athlete he is also one of the best coaches out there.” 

Austin Malleolo is a CrossFit legend.
