CrossFit Trainers Of Long Island
Head Medford Certified CrossFit Trainer Candice Seymour
Candice has always been involved in athletics, including soccer, softball, and track and field. She excelled in bowling, where she competed internationally in tournaments throughout Australia and New Zealand. Upon graduating high school Candice joined the US ARMY.
After returning home, she was bored and had fallen out of shape. She heard about a new Crossfit gym that was opening up and decided to check it out. She was hooked after one WOD and began calling Grassfed her second home. Candice is not just a lifting machine, but a cooking machine and yoga enthusiast. When she is not at Grassfed she can be found reading, traveling, watching “The Walking Dead” and working on her fitness endeavor LiftHeavyStretchDeep with her swolemate Ashlie.

Head Shirley Certified CrossFit Trainer John Socko
“Socko” can be found any hour of the day coaching classes at our Shirley location. He is a specialist in making every individual feel comfortable with what could initially seem intimidating. Socko embodies the spirit of the Crossfit Community. He represents the strong camaraderie which exists through all members with the common goal of self-betterment.
Many “Masters” athletes find great inspiration in Socko. Age and injury do not hold him back. At 45 years old and with surgeries in both shoulders, he’s still able to keep up with athletes half his age. Socko’s greatest thrill in life is helping others succeed. There is no better feeling for him than witnessing the “aha” moment of individuals reaching new levels in their fitness journey.

Ashtanga Yoga Teacher Ashlie Kosinski
Growing up Ashlie was a competitive figure skater, reaching USFSA level Junior Moves in the Field and USFSA level Free Intermediate. While in high school she took her first yoga class at the local gym and it piqued her curiosity. It wasn’t until 2012, nearly six years later after that first class, that her interest in yoga moved from yoga for fitness to yoga as a mind and body experience.
Currently, she is in her 200 hour Ashtanga Yoga Teacher Training, deepening her knowledge of the traditional practice of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. When not on her yoga mat, she is an avid Crossfitter here at Grassfed, and can be found hanging with the 5am crew Monday thru Friday. This unique experience of both yoga and crossfit, allows Ashlie to tailor a yoga flow to include both the traditional aspects of yoga and to incorporate poses that will help crossfitters with their training.
When she isn’t practicing yoga or training at Grassfed, Ashlie likes to indulge with Real Housewives marathons, participating in other athletic endeavors with her swolemate Candice such as Spartan races and hiking, inverting herself for Instagram pictures and contributing to Lift Heavy Stretch Deep, the yoga and crossfit blog she co-runs with Candice. Fitness is a way of life for this crossfit yogi and she is excited to share her passion of all things yoga with the Grassfed Crossfit family.
