Brynn Catalano


Eight-year-old Brynn Catalano enjoys soccer, gymnastics, and acrobatics, and always looks forward to science class, but what she really loves is CrossFit. At a young age, Brynn was in the gym with her dad, Chase, mimicking the moves he would teach his clients. Noticing her interest in the sessions, he gave her a plastic barbell one day to see what she could do, and it turns out, Brynn had great form. Without a single class, Brynn was already excelling, and even now, she wants to keep learning more.

“She’s eager to learn, she’s very humble, and she has a lot of grit. She doesn’t fully understand her skill-set yet, but she’s always cheering people on in the gym, encouraging them to finish their workouts. That camaraderie is something you can’t teach,” says Chase.

Brynn is already lifting more than her body weight, is competing on the national level, and is looking forward to the USA Weightlifting Youth Nationals next year. While it may seem like a lot of work to some, to Brynn, it’s exciting.

When she’s not at the gym, she’s never too far from CrossFit. One of her favorite things to do is watch CrossFit journeys on YouTube. Annalise Moore, a CrossFit athlete, is Brynn’s role model because “she’s really strong and really nice,” she shares.

Brynn enjoys spending time with her dad and hanging out with her two dogs: a great dane named Bacchus and a french bulldog named Porkchop. With hopes to one day open her own gym and teach people how to workout, Brynn will continue to strive and achieve that dream because she’s friendly, passionate, and one amazing kid.
