David has been a CrossFitter since 2009 and discovered it through a friend. Prior to CrossFit, he had been a high-level track and field athlete (100m/200m) in high school and college. Around the time he discovered CrossFit, David had been working out at the local gym with the standard workout regimen that many of us grew up with.
“I was also playing in multiple sports leagues and, as a PE teacher, I was also active within my classes playing whatever game we were playing that day.” He was in “good” shape. It took one day of CrossFit for him to come to one simple truth: “I was in nowhere near the shape I had previously thought. And I’ve been hooked ever since.” he said.
David has a solid background in athletics and has been coaching athletes, in some capacity, for over 16 years. He has a firm belief in the importance of metabolic conditioning and gaining strength without gaining considerable body mass.
