Al Amato - ALUMNI

Anaheim CrossFit West

Al grew up participating in traditional American sports and has always had a passion for health and fitness all his life. At LMU, Al began playing rugby where he lettered on the varsity team three years. After graduating with his business degree, Al played on the USA Men’s National Rugby Team and four-time National Champion, Belmont Shore Rugby Football Club. Through rugby, Al was fortunate to travel and live in Australia, Europe, and New Zealand. After retiring from rugby in 2000, he decided to attend Pepperdine University for his MBA.

Al trained at a “globo-gym” for many years until a friend recommended CrossFit in 2006. Al and his wife, Stephanie, were immediately hooked after their first workout and have not looked back. Al has been extremely impressed with the dedication, commitment, and community support CrossFit provides to every member no matter what their fitness level is. Al is passionate about making a change in peoples’ lives and believes CrossFit is for everyone.

Al and Stephanie have a full house of present and future Crossfitters with the two youngest being twin boys.
