FCCF Athlete: Dan J.

“I first met Dan before Fern Creek CrossFit even existed. His sense of humor and personality draws you in. His dedication and work ethic keeps you in. Dan is someone who strives to become better and puts in the effort. Over the past few months Dan’s performance of form and strength in the gym has improved vastly due to his coachability and accountability. His most recent InBody scan is proof that he continues to work hard and smart outside of the gym. I truly can’t wait to see what is next for Dan.” – Coach Meg
