American Freestyle Black Belt.
Hi My name is Damien Larson. I have been involved in health and fitness since the age of 8 years old, when I began my life long commitment to Martial Arts. I am always in pursuit of knowledge in health, fitness and alternative healing. I have been lucky enough to train individuals of all ages and from all walks of life. I received my Black Belt Sensei rank in American Freestyle Martial Arts in 2004. I became a Professional Trainer in that same year and have been dedicated full time to the fitness world for the past 10 years. I have worked in small personal training studios as well as large corporate gyms and also privately in the homes of clients. In this time I have experienced the gamit of what a career in the fitness industry has to offer. From one on one to group training, program design and launch, as well as management and sales positions. At the end of the day what I love most is helping people change their lives and watching my them grow.
My goal with CrossFit East Hanover is to create friendships and help people achieve their full potential, within a well balanced environment that is welcoming yet challenging both physically and mentally. Everyone walks into CrossFit with a different goal. Some want to be top notch competitors some want to get in better shape and some may wonder how their crazy friend dragged them into a place like this! The great part of CrossFit is that all are welcome and all are supported and safely encouraged to pursue their full fitness potential. Our mission is to help you complete your mission. Once you enter, you become part of a community bonded by achievement, sweat, hard work and belief! Come join us and we will show you!
“Health is a state of complete harmony of the body, mind and spirit. When one is free from physical disabilities and mental distractions, the gates of the soul open.” ~B.K.S. Iyengar

I got lucky the day I stumbled upon Crossfit, it was actually random how it happened. I was at a globo gym back in 2008 when an old friend of mine was banging out some kipping pull-ups. I was so puzzled as to what she was doing so I asked, she told, we Did a WODc and that was all that I needed. it was right then that I realized, I found the thing that would take my fitness to the next level. What I didn't realize was that I also found the thing that I could never truly master, but only improve on. This was both a frustrating discovery and an exciting challenge. I became a coach in late 2009. I competed in the CrossFit games making it to regional level in 2010! I also have done numerous other crossfit and non-crossfit competitions. Coach Damien and I have been friends since back in the B.C. (before crossfit) times. when i found out he was opening up his first crossfit box I dropped everything I was doing at the time "in the crossfit world" because I know the caliber of person that he is. it was instantly game! I do this because I love it, I do it because I believe in it.
