Biography

Dave has owned CFD since April, 2009, growing from our original 35 members in 1000 square feet to the mecca of functional fitness we are today, with over 400 members in our 7000 square feet space.  He received his Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Physiology from The George Washington University. He competed on a nationally-ranked cheerleading squad during college, and after nearly 20 years of traditional weight training, CrossFit showed him what fitness is really all about.  Today, he uses his functional fitness to train Muay Thai and recently ran his first 5k and 5 mile races in Durham.

Having spent the first part of his career in the traditional fitness industry in major markets like New York and Washington, DC, 11 of those with the Gold’s Gym, before finding CrossFit, Dave is excited to share his passion for real fitness and body transformations.
