Certified Level 1 CrossFit trainer Dave Duprey faces all challenges with a fierce, competitive spirit. The ex-minor-league hockey player—who holds a National Academy of Sports Medicine certification—has won several American Strongman competitions, bested the state deadlift record, and competed in the 2010 CrossFit Games.
At Self Made CrossFit, Duprey channels this devout athleticism into his coaching duties as he helps clients of all ages and abilities blast through their perceived limitations. He and his team of trainers harness CrossFit's high-intensity, constantly varied functional movements to bolster strength and endurance. To do this, they use free weights and body weight to help everyone from athletes to new moms get in shape. While there is no typical class at Self Made CrossFit, exercises may include kettlebell training, gymnastics, climbing, and lifting.
The air is charged with passion and ambition at S.U. FitNess Studio, and that’s just how the late Adrian “Santo” Nunez, the studio’s founder, intended things to be. Santo, who sadly lost his fight against muscular dystrophy in 2008, opened S.U. Studio as a place for teenagers to showcase and hone their special talents, whether dancing, singing, writing, or DJing. Today, though S.U. has shifted its focus to fitness, the instructors make sure to honor Santo’s expressive, encouraging spirit by helping locals achieve their wellness goals while having fun. Classes in Piloxing and step fusion add variety to the schedule, and lead instructor Delilah Rios heads invigorating Zumba sessions for students aged 4 and up.
