DAVID
ANDERSON

CF-L1

Coach

David has been doing CrossFit since 2014 and earned his CF-L1 in 2015. He also holds a CrossFit weightlifting certification. Before weightlifting and getting involved in CrossFit, his athletic background included cross country in high school. Throughout his CrossFit career, he’s been exposed to training with Games level athletes, has worked with weightlifting nationals athletes, and has begun his own competitive journey within the sport.

High-quality coaching in his own words:

I consider attention to threshold training/movement quality, personable, and continued education/growth to be three of the most important aspects of exceptional coaching at CFM. Together these aspects form a toolbox that provides the coach the ability to challenge and sustain the athlete and excite themselves as a coach in the process.

"Success is peace of mind, which is a direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing you did your best to become the best you are capable of becoming."

MORE ABOUT DAVID

I was learning weightlifting at a CrossFit gym and got pulled into to WOD with clean and jerks and wallballs and did really well.

I decided to take on coaching after having gaining some experience as an athlete and finding opportunities to give back to others seeking to embark on their own fitness journey.

  • Competing head-to-head with Mike Aaron in 2017 Friday night lights
  • Being part of the regular community and charity events like 31 Heroes
  • Watching the dramatic finishes to workouts from certain members (i.e. Adam & Mike)

More CrossFit, socializing, and tinkering with things.

Focus on movement and shapes. Power/Intensity will come.

Fran - it’s a benchmark with relatively simple movements, easily scalable, and highly sufferable to really bring the class and athletes together.

Thruster max effort.
