Rob Lumsden – Owner/Level 2 Trainer
Now in my 40’s, I am currently in the best shape of my life due to CrossFit and proper diet. In my younger days, I didn’t have any trouble staying in shape – I played a lot of sports, specifically tennis throughout high school. I joined the Army and for the three years of my enlistment, stayed in shape through the typical PT program. As I got older and started working inside at a desk, I became less active and found it harder and harder to stay in shape. I discovered CrossFit and changed to a Paleo/primal diet and immediately started to see my health metrics improve (lower blood pressure, cholesterol, etc.).
Seeing the impact of CrossFit made me want to help others in the same way. I received my Level 1 CrossFit Trainer certification in 2012, and opened Garagebox that same year (in my garage). In June 2014, we opened the doors of 850 CrossFit at its current location. I received my Level 2 CrossFit Trainer certification in 2015.
I love seeing members of our community achieve their fitness goals.
Dean Izzo – Coach/Level 1 Trainer
I started CrossFit in 2014 after meeting Coach Rob at a graduation party. I thought I was in OK shape until he introduced me to a “real” workout and that was it – game ON! I have been doing CrossFit an average of 4x a week ever since, watching my diet and distance running a few days in between. The key to CrossFit is knowing what your goals are when you start. Mine were simple; get fit, have fun, avoid injury, and remember not to take myself too seriously. Plus, I was tired of having to hold my breath whenever I needed to tie my shoes! Because of CrossFit, I have lost 21lbs of fat, gained 13lbs of muscle, lost 5” in my waist, and feel the best I ever have in my life! I am CrossFit Level 1 Certified and enjoy teaching and training at 850CrossFit whenever I can. I hope to share my passion for coaching and fitness with you at 850CrossFit, so come join us for a workout!
Dillan Clark – Coach/Level 1 Trainer
From a young age, I have constantly been involved with sports and the outdoors. I have a background of high school and college baseball, so staying active is essential. I also found the sport of mountain biking recently and cannot get enough of it. I enlisted in the Coast Guard from college where I became the Health Promotion Coordinator for my unit. Working with people and seeing their transformations and goals achieved is a major driving force in why I enjoy the CrossFit community. I officially began CrossFit in 2014 in Michigan at my last Coast Guard unit. The comradery, physical, and mental challenge that is always present can’t be found at an ordinary gym. I decided to obtain my CrossFit Level 1 trainer certificate to help push others to a healthier life and obtain long awaited goals just as I was pushed to a better me.
I am well versed in Dr. Barry Sears’ Zone Eating and have seen awesome results both personally and with clientele. I firmly believe nutrition is the base upon which we can improve. I look forward to working out with you in the near future. Drop by and say hello some time.
