Owner/Head Coach Dan Lempriere has more than 20 years of experience in strength training and 15 years of experience as a personal trainer, coach, and massage therapist. A CrossFitter for six years, Dan specialises in rehabilitation, mobility and injury prevention, nutrition, and personalised programming.
He Ioves learning and passing his knowledge onto others. "I love learning new things, which is why I love CrossFit so much," he says. "There is always a new skill or lesson to be learnt. Being involved with CrossFit and being an affiliate owner has opened me up to a large range of disciplines that are required for CrossFit workouts and for the running of an affiliate. I am also passionate about sharing that knowledge, so as to help others and have a positive influence on their lives."
Always sports-oriented, Dan became involved in little athletics from an early age. "Later in life, my sport was predominantly Australian Rules Football; however, I have also been involved in a large variety of other sports including, basketball, water sports, boxing/kickboxing and fun runs. My sport of choice now is CrossFit."
Dan was a Personal Trainer at a Fitness First in the city for nine years, and found that he was getting good results from incorporating CrossFit workouts into both his clients' and his own training. "I got fed up with both the lack of functional equipment available at the time to perform these workouts as prescribed and the constant fighting with members during peak times for the use of equipment when needed," he says. "This led to myself and my business partner opening up our own CrossFit affiliate, back in 2012, so we could deliver a better training environment for our clients."
