About five years ago, Dustin discovered a thing called CrossFit. The more he learned about it, the more he realized how familiar he was with many of its elements.
As a former member of the Canadian National Gymnastics Team and having worked with Cirque du Soleil, much of the training came easy for Dustin, with the exception of one gaping hole…barbell training. Here was an elite athlete that had no idea how to deadlift or back squat!
Since sustaining a back injury while prepping for a major gymnastics competition, Dustin was even more hestitant to do heavier barbell training. He credits that barbell training for having a positive impact on his back and training. “Had I done CrossFit while training gymnastics, I know I would have been a better gymnast”.
Dustin also holds a Masters degree from Manhattan School of Music in Voice. When he’s not training in the gym, you can find him in and around the city performing his original country music.
