CrossFit of Marlboro was founded by Tom Tecca in 2010. Initially, CrossFit of Marlboro operated out of a 1500 square foot space on Brigham Street in Marlboro. Due to its rapid growth, CrossFit of Marlboro was moved to a 2500 square foot facility in January 2011, and then to a 3600 square foot facility in October 2011 – where it remains today – still on Brigham Street – but closer to Rte. 85.
Tom was introduced to the CrossFit program in 2009 while working at a local gym. After participating in just one session, Tom immediately realized the health benefits that CrossFit has to offer. He earned a CrossFit Level I certification in 2009, opened CrossFit of Marlboro shortly after, and, today, continues to offer his clients the same benefits – Elite Fitness for all age groups.
