Michael Wright joined CrossFit in March 2012 and credits his brother-in-law, James, with helping to make the life changing decision. After starting at a small box in Sunnyvale, CA, he gained an understanding of the benefits CrossFit had both physically and mentally. The combination of movements during workouts provided an opportunity for him to experience a challenge that related to his days growing up in competitive sports. The biggest benefit happened when he and his wife, Ashley, started at Excel in October 2012 and made many friendships that helped ease the transition to Manteca from the Bay Area.
Michael earned a Bachelor's Degree in Athletic Training, Master's Degree in Kinesiology and is currently writing his dissertation to earn a Doctoral Degree in Education at Pacific. He has worked with division one sports teams at University of the Pacific and also as an intern with the San Francisco 49ers. Michael holds a CrossFit Level 1 Certificate. Michael teaches physical education and is the Athletic Director at a charter school in Stockton and also serves as the strength coach. He is also the Director of Sales for Caffeine and Kilos.
