Dan started CrossFit in 2012 and began coaching in 2014. He hasn’t stopped since and probably won’t stop. His favorite part of coaching is helping people who want to improve. Dan is a CF-L1 coach and a has a CrossFit weightlifting certification.
He loves being able to share Crossfit with his kids, who have been working out alongside him since the very beginning and are now in HIGH SCHOOL, competing in scholastic weightlifting competitions and training at the gym.
Dan continues to CrossFit because it “keeps him young” as he tries to keep up with his hot, younger wife (also a coach @239 and author of this bio 😉).
Dan credits his current 500# deadlift PR to “old man strength,” adhering to the idea that fitness is for all ages. He coaches on "Dan Time" - join an evening class to get in on this joke!
Al started CrossFit in 2014 and immediately fell in love with it. She attained L1 certification in 2015, re-certified in 2021, and has been coaching ever since.
Al loves the CrossFit 239 community and the self-focused competition: am I fitter/faster/stronger than I was last year?
Her favorite ways to utilize functional fitness are hiking, sailing, swimming, and speed-walking new cities. She ♥️ traveling!
