Coach Dave

My names Dave, I’m 29, been Coaching at CrossFit Chichester now for 3 years and been in the fitness industry as a personal trainer for nearly 10.

I love what I do, because I love CrossFit!… the physical demand our bodies can take is incredible and looking back at how far I have come as an athlete is all down to this incredible sport.

As far as my abilities go in the sport of CrossFit, I’ve qualified in the top 10% of the CrossFit OPEN this year (2021), which takes me onto the quarter finals stage with the fittest people in Europe, so that’s super exciting! And something I’ve worked hard for, for the past 4 years.

As a coach, changing the way people think about training, eating and just overall living a healthier, more balanced lifestyle is what gets me out of bed in the morning. Seeing my clients achieve goals they would never have even set themselves when we first met is an amazing feeling and one that excites me to meet and coach more and more people as the years go by.

My favourite aspect of CrossFit to teach and perform is gymnastics. Yes, the weightlifting and mono-structural conditioning is fundamental to gaining strength and fitness for living a healthier life, but showing people what they can do with just their own body weight, the right coaching and techniques, is a great feeling… and super fun!


I’m continually looking to improve as an athlete, coach, husband and father, of which I have a beautiful 2 & half year old daughter and a little boy on the way. This continuous self-development is what makes my job so exciting, pushing my body to the limit as well as changing people’s lives along the way, being the best I can be, so that others can be the best versions on themselves too.


So, whether you’re struggling with your own training, or a complete novice and need the guidance to a healthier happier you…

I can help you on your journey, plus we’d have a blast along the way ????
