Cassio was born in Brazil and participated in swimming and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu before beginning his professional athletic career as a successful Downhill Mountain Biker. Pretty soon, he was mixing in gymnastic movements into his biking and swimming workouts, which led him to look into performance and nutrition, and finally CrossFit. His pursuit of fitness knowledge led him to Australia to work with veteran coaches, and then to New Caledonia, where he helped establish the country’s first CrossFit box.
His next stop was Hong Kong, where he added sports injury and physical therapy studies to his repertoire. After that, it was on to Qatar to become the Head Coach of a VIP facility. Now, he’s really happy to part of such a great community at CFML. Whether he’s coaching, lifting, handstand walking around or doing crazy mobility work, you’ll always find him with an ear-to-ear smile!
