Athlete Profile: Dave Lipson - Northeast Regional
Returning competitor will be hard to beat.
Dave Lipson's real passion is bringing CrossFit to people and educating them on fitness. If you didn't know any better, you would think his passion was lifting really heavy things, really quickly. "I want to push myself to be a better person, coach, and athlete every day," says Lipson. It's a fortunate coincidence that he is also an extremely proficient athlete by all measures. Lipson's athletic background can be traced to collegiate and Minor League baseball, where he pitched for various teams before an elbow injury ended his career early.
Dave made the shift to training others and found CrossFit in 2008. He started his affiliate - CrossFit Exodus - soon afterwards. As a coach lipson is helping people transform their lives with CrossFit. Currently he is an intern coach with the Level One Seminar team. As an athlete he has appeared twice in the CrossFit Games (2008 and 2009). He is also an NAS strongman competitor. Lipson's career has even delved into the showbiz where he is NBC's LX TV fitness expert/host. This weekend he'll be looking to secure one of three male qualifying spots to the CrossFit Games Finals in July.
