He is currently stationed at Luke Air Force Base in Glendale, however he and his wife moved to Arizona from Alaska where he was last stationed. He has many years of leadership experience and enjoys helping others. David received his CF-L1 2 years ago while attending Celsius as an athlete. He initially began coaching CrossFit classes on the Air Force Base and has now been coaching at Celsius as well for the last year. David’s wife, Elena, has also been an athlete at Celsius for the last 4 years. They enjoy working out together and getting the opportunity to push each other to accomplish new goals!

As a coach at Celsius, David enjoys encouraging and motivating people and seeing a positive change in their lives. The culture at CrossFit Celsius is positive. We check the drama and BS at the door and everyone is there for the same purpose – to get a good workout in. No matter whether you are first or last to finish, everyone is there cheering you on through the very last rep.
