Meet Dan, our January 2016 Athlete of the Month!


Dan joined CFP back in early August and has been with us almost 6 months now!  He has been so disciplined since beginning & is making awesome progress!  He’s a regular at the 5am (so you may not have met him 😉 ) and has been coming to Sunday Oly class as well.  Dan is getting stronger & more fit, week by week, often putting gold stars up on the whiteboard!

Dan grew up playing all kinds of sports & wrestled for a bit in college.  He’s finding CrossFit reminds of team sports where everyone spurs each other on, a fun & great way to get in shape.  Dan spends his free time hanging with his wife, Sarah, and his 2 dogs, Jack & Ellie.  We’re so glad to have you at CFP Dan and are proud of all the great strides you’ve made towards being more fit.  Keep up all the great work, the best is yet to come!

Dan’s Athlete of the Month Profile

  1. Tell us about yourself in a few sentences.  I grew up just outside Washington DC and have been in Charlotte for 8 years.  I played year-round sports (football, volleyball, soccer, roller hockey, and wrestling) as far back as I can remember, including a brief stint of collegiate football and AAU wrestling before moving to NC. I now work as a Project Manager.  I am married and have two wonderful dogs, Jack and Ellie.
  2. What do you hope to achieve through CrossFit?  To have more energy and get back into shape.
  3. What is your favorite CF exercise?  I have only been doing CrossFit for 6 months, so everything still sucks; if I have to pick one style I would say Olympic Lifting.
  4. What CF exercise do you least like?  Running, anything running.
  5. What would you tell someone considering trying CFP?  Come out, try it, and you will be sucked in; it is a great atmosphere for working out.  It reminds me of a close knit team practice.
Say hey to Dan next time you see him at the box!
