David was a collegiate and high school athlete, having gone on to play football and run track and field at UNC Pembroke. There, he received the Most Outstanding Student-Athlete award and was the regional champion in the hammer throw. With all that athletic background, David was missing the high-intensity workouts and environment after he finished college with a degree in Exercise Science. David tried CrossFit when an affiliate moved into the gym where he worked out and he loved it. Today, he’s passionate about being the best coach possible, Olympic weightlifting and applying his fitness to playing sports recreationally.
In David’s words: “I just love to see people improve. Especially when they think they won’t ever be able to do something and you help them start to figure it out. There is a look on their face that is awesome to see.”
