Dan (although you might hear him more commonly referred to as War Machine!) has been with us at CFA since the very beginning and has helped grow our community from its very roots.

He started CrossFitting looking for a fun way to get fit and soon developed a passion for helping others move better, which led Dan to become a Level 1 trainer in August 2013. Dan can be found coaching at CFA almost every day, on top of his day job in pipe design.

Dan's favourite part of coaching is the "light bulb" effect - "when you see something click with an athlete for the first time, enabling them to understand the movement you're coaching, that's a great moment."

Dan has also taken to the competition floor, competing regularly in events across the UK. His competing highlight is his team winning the Tribal Clash competition in 2015 in Devon. He loves meeting new friends and his cheeky smile and endless enthusiasm makes CFA a fun place to train!
