Athlete Spotlight: Dustin L.

Dustin is the most disciplined and humbled athlete that I’ve come across. He’s never complained and done everything that I’ve asked him to do. In the year that he’s been with us he’s lost over 45lbs and reduced his body fat from 33% to 16%. All from CrossFit and Paleo. This stuff works. Congrats Dustin!

Hometown: Naples, FL

Age: 32

When did you first start training CrossFit Naples? May 2012 

Favorite WOD/Lift: Anything with olympic lifts.

Least Favorite WOD/Lift: Fran

Tell us about your sports & fitness background: In high school I played basketball and golf and after I rode motor cross.

How did you first get exposed to CrossFit? I read an article about Rob Orlando in 2010

Take us back to your first WOD… what was it, and how did it feel?My first WOD was pull-ups and kettle bell swings and that night I was not sure if I was coming back for another WOD or not.

What sort of changes have you seen in your body, health, and fitness since starting CF (before/after)? When  started I weighted 173 lbs at 16% BF, my strength and fitness are the best they have ever been. 

What sort of changes in your life have you experienced out of taking on something like CrossFit that were totally unexpected? Every day people ask me what I do and whats my diet and I try to tell them my story about my lifestyle change.

Please share with us and favorite CrossFit/CF Naples moments: Every Baseline Challenge event is a favorite day for me.

Any advice for people just getting started? Take the time to learn the movements at first. CrossFit is hard work and it takes time to get used to but it can be a life changer.

What are your hobbies, interest, and/or talents outside of CrossFit? I like to train at a traditional gym, ride my motorcycle and work around the house.
