Crossfit Coach: BRYCE
Personal fitness chef and Crossfit Coach, Bryce Boratko, has combined two of his life’s loves: food and fitness. Bryce grew up a multi-sport athlete playing soccer, baseball, basketball and swimming at the Varsity level. He has always had a competitive edge and the ambition to be the best that he could be at whatever he tries. During high school, Bryce and his relay team in swimming broke two long standing school records and made it to the CT State Swimming Championship. He also received the U.S. Marine Corps Scholastic Athlete Award as a senior in high school. Aside from athletics, Bryce also enjoys the outdoors. Hiking, camping, hunting and fishing are among his favorite hobbies.
At the age of 15, Bryce got a job washing dishes at a small restaurant near where he grew up in CT. He quickly became interested in cooking and the restaurant business and knew he wanted to make it his profession. After receiving a degree in Culinary Arts and a B.S. in Culinary Nutrition at Johnson & Wales University, Bryce completed a highly prestigious internship at La Locanda di Piero, a Michelin-starred restaurant in Vicenza, Italy. He then came back to finish up his nutrition degree and worked as a cook at two of Rhode Island’s most highly acclaimed restaurants, Gracie’s and La Laiterie. Since that time, Bryce has also renewed his interest in athletics and fitness by becoming a certified Crossfit coach and personal trainer.
The correct combination of food and fitness are two primary factors that contribute to a healthy lifestyle. Bryce’s cooking is heavily influenced by the Paleo Diet, as well as Mediterranean Cuisine and his goal is to teach how to create a lifestyle that is beneficial for health and fitness.
