Dan St John

DAWN BOX COACH

I am the dawn box man and for some reason love training early

I have always loved fitness and being active and from a young age played waterpolo for Nottingham midland league and for the National league at a high level

I used to train at a normal gym but there was always the competitive side to me that wanted more. In April 2012 I found CrossFit, I watched some clips on the internet and looked up my nearest box and booked in thinking to myself I’m a fit person this will be easy…………. how wrong was I , but after my first class I was hooked. Like everyone I had to start from the bottom and work on my technique plus flexibility and I’m happy I did. I really enjoy Olympic lifting, when I started I couldn’t overhead squat 50kg and now I’m at 145kg!

I’ve represented CrossFit Nottingham in a few competitions. My first being Cannock as a newbie then doing local throwdowns. My best finish was coming 3rd with the Box Rocks Team in 2013. In August 2014 I competed at European Inferno and the summer of 2015 Ill be competing at Tribal clash, I’m hoping I’ll be picked for regionals in the future

I enjoy seeing new people coming though the door especially at 6.30am!! Watching people start out and grow and improve and becoming part of the CrossFit community

I’m always happy to help with technique and give advice whenever asked.
