Donny Lavrenz
CrossFit Level 1 Trainer
Coach Donny’s CrossFit experience started in 2008 when his high school gym teacher programmed CrossFit WODs in his strength and conditioning class. From that day forward, Donny, and his teacher would share thoughts on the “main site” posts and stories of workouts. In 2011 Donny completed the CrossFit Level 1 Trainer course as well as Running and Endurance Specialization. He put that methodology to the test later in 2011 by completing a marathon.

As someone who loves to learn new things, Donny is a big fan of the last sentence in Greg Glassman’s World-Class Fitness in 100 Words: “Regularly learn and play new sports.” His interests include soccer, volleyball, tennis, alpine skiing, water skiing, cross-country skiing, running, hiking, Olympic lifting, hunting, fishing, and more. He is extremely excited to share his experience and help everyone at the gym improve their fitness and more importantly quality of life.
