DAVE HARDIE

CrossFit Level 1 (Accredited)

CrossFit Gymnastics Certification

Dave came to CrossFit in 2013 with some background in running and triathlons, although that was decades earlier.  He loved functional fitness from programs like P90X, and he liked group training from boot camp classes.  But once he experienced the camaraderie and competition of CrossFit, he was hooked.

Dave soon began competing in his age group, which is currently 60+.  This year he finished the CrossFit Open in the top 10 in the world, marking his fifth straight year making the Masters Qualifier stage. He is a two-time winner of the national Masters Tour and a three-time winner of the WODfather, the biggest masters event in the New York area.  He is also the only athlete over 55 to complete the 2017 WODprep Rx Challenge series.

Dave got his L-1 trainer certification in 2016 and his certification as a Gymnastics coach in 2017.  He takes great joy in helping athletes develop new skills, whether that means their first pullup or their first string of muscleups.

CrossFit has Dave in the best shape of his life – certainly on an “age-adjusted” basis – and he loves the athlete community at CrossFit Beaufort.  If he has any complaint, it is that he plays almost no golf these days.
