Tony Bendinelli

Tony’s CrossFit career began back in 2012. While wandering around the Ditmars area of Astoria, he stumbled upon CrossFit Dynamix. After years of yoga, and trying his hand at a couple of marathons, he was ready for a change of pace in his physical fitness journey, and CrossFit was the answer. Soon after his first WOD ("Annie"), he was hooked.

He took his L-1 Certification in 2014 the weekend of his 39th Birthday. A few months after joining UNLEASHED NYC, he was presented with the opportunity to coach Foundations, and the rest is history.
Now a full-time Coach, and Personal Trainer (, Tony is also Head Coach of OUT-FIT QUEENS (
