Trish Pickford is a passionate, outgoing, motivational, emotional, and last but not least loud coach at Islip CrossFit. Outside of coaching, Trish runs sales in New York for FORTO Coffee which is a 2oz USDA organic coffee energy shot.
Trish’s college soccer career is one of her biggest achievements as a leader. It taught her a lot about herself and working closely with others in an athletic and competitive environment. Being a team captain for 3 years helped to shape the coach she is for us today. Missing her soccer captain lifestyle, Trish decided to become a CrossFit coach to continue her journey of encouraging and assisting others to become better athletes.
Being able to help others make lifestyle changes that will make them live longer is a huge factor of her happiness and success in this CrossFit community.
When Trish is not working with FORTO or coaching, she is spending time with her fiancé and dog Roscoe. If it’s not on the boat in the summertime, then it’s watching a terrible movie on the couch. She also loves to do SoulCycle, Yoga, and sign up for half marathons/marathons that she almost always regrets.
Trish fully enjoys all aspects of fitness so if she’s not at CrossFit, you can likely find her doing some type of active recovery whether it’s walking her dog, paddle boarding, or on her jet ski. She still plays soccer once or twice a week as well, but she says her favorite thing to do is NOTHING. There is nothing better than relaxing at home with the two things she could never possibly give up, those being bacon and pickles
