Dave has been involved in athletics since a young age, having played soccer and baseball through middle school; basketball, track, and cross country through high school; and rowing all four years in college. It wasn't until he found CrossFit (or did it find him?) in 2009 that he found his passion. Since attending his first CrossFit Level 1 seminar in 2010, Dave has coached at four different affiliates and founded a military affiliate (CrossFit 89 in Kabul, Afghanistan and then Fort Bragg, NC), where he served as affiliate manager and head coach for two and a half years before the Army moved him to the Leavenworth/Lansing area. Dave enjoys working out and competing, but found his real passion is helping others realize their potential.
