Dan Allen: Trainer

Dan Allen

Dan is a CrossFit Level 1 trainer.  He started CrossFit in March 2009.  Dan ran cross country and track in high school and college. Back in the day, he ran several marathons including a 2:39.39 at Dallas White Rock (but that was a long time ago).  At age 40, he wanted to get in shape for a ski trip so he started running and weightlifting.  Dan got bored with his routine and started researching ideas and found CrossFit.com. Joining an affiliate came next and was a big help. Walking through that gym door is all the planning he needed to do. Dan enjoys pressing the boundaries of what he can accomplish in a supportive community of fellow athletes. Dan believes there is no place like CrossFit Jenks and some of his closest friends are people he has met there. Dan is a strong advocate of the CrossFit’s saying: “regularly learn and play new sports”. Outside the gym, he participates in mountain biking, trail running, climbing, snow skiing and paddleboard.
Dan’s favorite is coaching the CrossFit 101 classes. It is very rewarding for Dan to introduce people to CrossFit and see their excitement as they learn and perform movements and WODs.
