Although Dana had heard and known of CrossFit for years, it was not until she found herself wanting to change her health and lifestyle for the better, that she finally gave CrossFit 808. During her Elements Program, she remembers not being able to do a push-up or sit-up, and cried during her first workout, “Baseline.” However, soon after graduating from the Elements Program in March of 2013, Dana’s fitness level began to improve, and in the 2017 CrossFit Games season, she was named one of the alternates for Team CrossFit 808 at the California Regionals.
Dana is a hard worker and really enjoys helping others. She is currently the warehouse/operations manager for Hawaiian Island Creations, one of Hawai’i’s largest local surf shops. Dana earned her CrossFit Level 1 Certification in August of 2017 and has been coaching at 808 since September of 2017.
Dana’s favorite quote:
“Fluctuat nec mergitur”
She is tossed by the waves, but does not sink.
