Dave Huynh - Olympic Lifting Coach
Dave was a high school distance runner and tennis player. Ironically, he does neither of these sports anymore, and is a dedicated competitive Olympic weightlifter. His current goal is qualifying for the American Open.
While in grad school, Dave discovered CrossFit after getting a coupon handed to him. He joined United Barbell as an athlete in 2012 and fell in love with the community, making UB his home away from home. After completing much of his CrossFit certifications for his own personal development, Dave decided to embark upon UB's internship program and become one of our resident Oly coaches, moonlighting as "CrossFit Dave" once year during the CrossFit Open.
