Daniel has always been an athlete and accomplished his goal of attending college on an athletic scholarship for football. Daniel found CrossFit to fill the competitive and athletic part of his life that was missing after he graduated with his degree in Exercise Science. Today, he loves lifting heavy and specializes in Olympic weightlifting, powerlifting, and strongman training.
He’s passionate about helping people improve their lives,
knowing that the small amount of time they dedicate to their health and fitness with Imperial Beach CrossFit has enormous impact.
In Daniel’s words: “As an athlete I couldn’t stay away from the gym. I knew this is where I belonged, it wasn’t the workouts or my personal achievements that kept me coming back. It was the amazing people I had the opportunity of working with.”
Lupe has a passion for helping others. She has a background in social work but found herself burned out in an emotionally difficult field. When she tried CrossFit, she was inspired a motivated community of people who wanted to help themselves. When she started coaching, Lupe knew the CrossFit gym was the right fit for her and her passion for service to others.
In Lupe’s words: “I’m passionate about helping others help themselves by way of physical, mental, and overall wellness.”
Brian is serious about testing the limits of fitness. In 2008, Brian cycled the Triple Bypass, a 120-mile bike ride climbing over 10,000 feet in elevation gain. In 2011, he ran the Destin 50, a 50-mile ultra marathon on the Florida beaches. He has summitted 23 of Colorado’s 55, 14,000-foot peaks. As a CrossFit athlete and coach, the fitness methodology is another way Brian is able to push the boundaries of human potential.
In Brian’s words: “I love being able to share the same challenges and joys in the pursuit of fitness and witnessing personal growth and milestones reached.”
Allie is a coach who enjoys teaching the fundamentals. When people train their bodies to move properly and functionally, they live healthier, happier lives. Allie found her true passion when she attended her Level 1 course and came out determined to provide the best health and fitness services as a coach.
In Allies’ words: What I love most about coaching our members is “…The looks on their faces when they prove themselves wrong by doing something they never thought they could.”
