MEMBER SPOTLIGHT - DAVID B.


MEMBER SPOTLIGHT - DAVID B.

Meet David B.

David has made tremendous improvements in strength, mobility, and work capacity.
One of the traits I appreciate most about David is his enthusiasm in celebrating with everyone post-WOD. Despite his quest for long locks, I have come to have great appreciation and respect for David.


David is one of the young guns making great improvements at Yucaipa CrossFit. Like many of us, David fell in love with CrossFit after his first WOD. Unlike most, he decided to take his knowledge of CrossFit to the next level by attending a Crossfit Level 1 Seminar and become a Level 1 Trainer.

Keep reading to learn a little bit more about David's experience at Yucaipa CrossFit.

What were you doing for fitness before Yucaipa CrossFit?
Baseball and bicep curls at a Globo gym
 

What brought you to Yucaipa CrossFit?
I always wanted to try out crossfit, and Brock told me I could come and try it for free, so my buddy Austin T. and I jumped on it and were hooked after day 1.
 

Tell us about your experience at YCF?
It has been awesome. The coaches are so encouraging, intelligent, passionate about crossfit, and truly care about the safety and performance of every athlete that comes in. Also, every other member there instantly becomes your best friend.
 

What is your favorite YCF memory?
Austin and I doing our first muscle ups. It was the best thing ever.
 

What is your biggest area of improvement?
My body fat decrease and muscle increase. Also, my hair has gotten really long since I have joined, which is awesome.
 

What is your next goal?
To stay healthy, get stronger than Ron Sams, our bear man trainer, and to start to resemble my favorite hero, Thor.
 

What is your favorite WOD/movement?
I really like snatches and muscle ups. Snatches because they are hard to do and they are super quick, and muscle ups because I have always thought that if you could do a muscle up then you are too legit to quit.
 

What movements/WODs are your least favorite?
I really don’t like wall balls or rowing for a long period of time.
 

Anything else you would like to share?
Besides accepting Jesus as my Savior, deciding to do Crossfit is the best decision I have ever made. My mobility, endurance, strength and physique are far better than I ever could’ve imagined. I saw three times the results in my body after 3 months of Crossfit then I did after a year of a traditional gym.

Deciding to do CrossFit was one of the best decision of my life. Not just because it has gotten me into the best shape of my life, but because of the people that I have become so close with in the process.

Last year the thought never crossed my mind to sign up for the CrossFit Open. Last year the idea would have made me laugh out loud. But that was last year. This year my son Brock said to me, “You’re signing up for the Open, right?” This year I’m thinking it might not be such a ridiculous notion after all.
