  • Todd Occhiuto

    Owner/Coach

    Growing up, Todd participated in every sport you could imagine but found his niche in baseball. He even went on to play at a collegiate level for Flagler College in St. Augustine. Soon after, he was introduced to CrossFit and began coaching in 2008. “CrossFit gave me a community of like-minded people to spend my time with and instilled a constant pursuit of excellence into every aspect of my life.”

    The change was so drastic that he decided to join forces with Aaron to create DRiV Fitness. As a coach, he enjoys working with newcomers and guiding them through the CrossFit lifestyle. He’s also an expert at teaching complex barbell movements and gymnastics, as well as helping athletes refine their mechanics to increase efficiency.

He created DRiV Fitness as a place for you to recharge and share new techniques with peers. It’s a workout community that welcomes all people, no matter their background. He believes that together, we can be one fit family.
