Crossfit appeals to the analytical side of my brain. Every workout can be quantified by time, number of repetitions or amount of weight; so every day brings the opportunity to achieve a new personal best and a sense of accomplishment. I started doing Crossfit in January 2010 and earned a Level 1 certification in August 2010. As a Crossfit trainer, I enjoy working with athletes to help them learn new skills, improve form and provide motivation. I believe in the sport and am proud of the athletes that I train.

I’ve been an athlete since my early teens and have been an avid runner for more than 20 years. In addition to numerous road and trail races, I have run seven marathons, including Boston, and was a pacer for the Leadville 100. I also enjoy hiking, soccer, cross country skiing, snow boarding and yoga.

Dave was quickly drawn in to the CrossFit concept of life-long fitness in an efficient, competitive, and fun program. As a long-time multi-sport endurance athlete, staying in shape has been an integral part of Dave’s life. He is 40 years old and getting younger every day. In addition to high-school football, track, and cross-country, he ran and was captain of his NCAA Division 1 Cross-country team at Stetson University in Deland, FL. He studied computer science and graduated with his BA in 1995.

Dave is a level 1 Crossfit instructor, co-owner, and fills in as a coach as needed. He has been enjoying Crossfit Sandy since early 2010. He is also currently a principal software engineer and manager at Motorola Solutions. Dave met Bethanie in 2001 when they were training for their first marathon through the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Team in Training program. Through that program they ran the Chicago Marathon where they both qualified for and ran the Boston Marathon. Bethanie has been keeping Dave on his toes ever since with her infective enthusiasm for fitness, passion for CrossFit, and pursuit for excellence.

I have been very active my whole life. I have been an ACE certified Aerobic instructor for 10 years teaching students at Idaho State University, where I earned my bachelors of Science Degree in Health Education. I enjoy skiing, golfing, tennis and boating in my spare time.It wasn’t until I was introduced to CrossFit by my sister, in February 2010, that I truly understood “fitness”. It was then when I fell in love with CrossFit and earned a Level 1 CrossFit Certification in March of 2011.CrossFit has transformed my life mentally and physically. I can now do things I never thought were possible. I am so much more confident in my life endeavors and I want to share my addiction to CrossFit with others.CrossFit has truly enabled me to live a lifestyle that keeps me in the best shape of my life and it offers great opportunity for anyone willing to make a positive change.

CrossFit Level 1 Trainer
I live in Sandy, Utah and I train at Crossfit Sandy. In addition to being a Level 1 Crossfit Trainer, I am currently a student at the University of Utah studying Exercise Physiology. After growing up as a competitive soccer player I started doing crossfit in August of 2011 and like the majority of the people in the Crossfit community, I said this is the program for me from the second I walked in the door. I got my level 1 cert in March of 2013 and have enjoyed coaching crossfit as much as I have enjoyed doing crossfit myself. One of the greatest joys in coaching is watching that light go on in someone’s head when a movement they have been struggling with finally clicks and they know that they have accomplished something they never expected they would.

I am 38 years old, married 15 years to my best friend, Russ, and have two pretty fabulous kids. My
oldest is Aidan, 16 and my “baby” Grace is 12. I have been involved in Crossfit now for about 2 years
and certified in January 2013. I worked as a certified personal trainer for 2 years and also taught a
Bootcamp for another 2 years. Although I have been athletic most of my life, I had never been truly fit
until I found Crossfit. I have always been a runner first and have completed 4 marathons, 10 or so half
marathons, The Spartan Beast, a couple of triathlons and relay races. I look forward to the challenges
that Crossfit has to offer me every single day and always strive to be the best athlete and coach I can
possibly be. No limits!
