My name is Suzie Lilakos, I live in the lovely state of Massachusetts right outside of Boston. I have lived in New England my whole life, growing up I played teams sports, softball, basketball, and at the collegiate level lacrosse. I also did a great deal of snowboarding, skateboarding, wake boarding, pretty much anything you can do on a board!
In 2011 I found Crossfit and never looked back. Its my passion. I love it so much that not even a year in I went and earned my Level 1 coaching certification. I love coaching just as much as I love doing Crossfit, sometimes more! I have coached at many different gyms, met many different people, and have helped many different people achieve their goals. Currently, I coach at Crossfit 128 in Wakefield, MA, a gym that I helped start and run from day one. I also do my fair share of competitions, in 2014 I was on a team at the Crossfit Games East Regionals. This past year I finished 121st in the Crossfit Open Northeast region. This year I plan on breaking into the top 100!
As if coaching and running a gym isn’t enough, I am also a part time firefighter in Lynnfield, MA. Something I am also very passionate about, something I wanted to do from a young age and finally achieved that goal a few years back. This past year I competed at the Firefighter Throwdown held at the FDIC in Indianapolis, IN. I will be heading back again next April for an other go with my team!
Both are very active, very physical jobs. Ultima helps me feel fresh, hydrated and replenished on a daily basis in the gym or riding the fire engine!
