DAN MURPHY aka “Bear”
CrossFit Level 1 Trainer
Olympic Lifting Coach
Hi, I’m Dan (AKA Bear), and I’m one of the esteemed trainers at Top Gun Crossfit. After dabbling in CrossFit on my own in the early days of the main page, I rediscovered Top Gun Crossfit in September of 2010 after a few years of Olympic weightlifting. My passion for Crossfit led me to obtain my Level 1 Certification in April 2011 and I am happy to share my experience to motivate and encourage our members to accomplish their fitness goals.
The community is what draws me back to Top Gun Crossfit time after time. Being among like minded folks who provide encouragement and a bit of competition every now and then provide a great atmosphere in which to set personal bests. I always say I would never push myself as hard as I do if it weren’t for the lovely group of people at Top Gun Crossfit.
When I’m not in the gym you’ll find me playing piano and hiking or dabbling in a variety of sports like snowboarding, frisbee golf and soccer.
