Dave, the Man, the Myth, the Blair-Meister-General

CrossFit was not Dave’s thing. He enjoyed working his chest and adding in curls, day in day out. Leg day? That was just another name for bench day. Gymnastics? Not on his radar.

With resistance he began his journey at CFNYC five years ago, encouraged by a relentless CrossFit friend – you know the type – who wouldn’t take no for an answer. “I went in ready to hate it,” he says, but stuck with it because of the friends he made. Now, Dave is consumed by the training and methodology of the sport.

When he’s in the gym, Dave is at home. For him, the constant challenges of Crossfit act, paradoxically, as a stress-reliever. He’s also one of the friendliest faces of CFNYC, and a founding member of Team Dangerous, not to mention a committed citizen of #strictnation. It’s his courage, unstoppable versatility, and dedication to being a constantly varied human being that makes David Blair CFNYC’s August Member of the Month.
