Emily Buckley-Matura

Emily was born and raised in Brooklyn, where she spent the majority of her youth playing every sport possible in the streets of Park Slope. She was recruited to play soccer and lacrosse at the University of New Haven. In an effort to stay in shape during the off season, Emily found CrossFit and started training at CrossFit Virtuosity when she was home for summer break from college.

After graduating college, Emily moved back to NYC and started training with the competition team at CFV, which eventually brought her to the most amazing experience of her life: competing at the 2014 CrossFit Games on Team Virtuosity.

Soon after the Games, CrossFit officially took over Emily’s life when she joined the coaching program and started working full time at CFV.

Emily also competes in Olympic Lifting for Brooklyn Barbell Club and is nationally ranked 20th in her weight class.
Emily’s qualifications include:

  • CrossFit Level 1 Trainer
  • 2014 CrossFit Games Athlete, Team Virtuosity
