Dave received his Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Physiology from The George Washington University. He is a CrossFit Level I Trainer, National Strength and Conditioning Association Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist, and USA Weightlifting Club Coach. He holds CrossFit Kettlebell, Olympic Weightlifting, Barbell, Gymnastics, Rowing, Mobility, Goal Setting, and Nutrition Certifications. He is also a USA Weightlifting Local Referee. Dave competed on a nationally-ranked co-ed cheerleading squad during college, but has since traded partner stunts and pyramids for cleans, snatches, and pullups….lots and lots of pullups. After nearly 20 years of weight training, CrossFit has showed him what fitness is really all about. After spending nearly 15 years in the traditional commercial fitness industry in major markets like New York and Washington, DC, 11 of those with the biggest “big box” gym there is, Dave is excited to share his passion for CrossFit and the real fitness it brings to anyone who wants to listen in the Durham area.
