Matias Malkamaki (feel free to call him Mati) grew up homeschooled and as the oldest of 7 kids. His mother was born and raised in France and his father is a first-generation Finn. This diverse background has given him a unique look on life and a love for culture. He grew up active, playing soccer primarily. In his free time, he enjoys activities such as Spikeball, bouldering, parkour, snowboarding, and swimming.
Matias’ love of CrossFit began in a little gym in Mentor, Ohio right before graduating high school. He has since graduated college and hopes to continue honing his skills as an athlete and coach. One of his favorite parts of CrossFit is the incredible community it has allowed him to become a part of. He and his wife, Madison Rose-Malkamaki, are medical students together at Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine, and Matias is excited to integrate what he learns there into his coaching. Helping others balance their physical, emotional, relational, and spiritual health is a life calling for Matias.
