Who Are We?
CrossFit DCL has its roots in the Clarksville community. Coach Matt Biolsi began coaching people out of his garage, self-named “The Laboratory”, just off Dunbar Cave road until he could no longer support the growing demand. Matt firmly believes that CrossFit, as with all fitness programs, is an experiment- an experiment to find the best methodologies to get people in the best shape of their lives. Many fitness programs claim to have the “best methods” or the “best equipment” but by what means are these methods or equipment tested? CrossFit Dunbar Cave Lab uses the CrossFit definition of fitness of “Increased work capacity across broad times and modal domains”. In other words, do more work in less time. Life doesn’t care if you’re a world record power lifter or a house mom, we are all placed in situations where we need to be able to lift, run and push and by using the CrossFit methodologies we feel you will be able to handle any challenge life presents you. Now located off 101st Airborne Division Parkway and Peachers Mill Road, CrossFit Dunbar Cave Lab is set to serve the Clarksville, Fort Campbell, and Oak Grove communities.
The Mission of CrossFit Dunbar Cave Lab
Our mission is to enhance the health and overall well being of our community. Our class sizes are small in order to give personalized attention to athletes looking to better themselves. Our open gym times are designed to give those athletes with busy schedules time to come in and get a workout even when life demands get in the way. If you’re training for a specific goal, talk to us about our Personal Programming and Distance Programming options.
Our athlete of the month is the one and only Gordon. It’s truly been an honor having Gordon around the gym over the last year. He’s always the first willing to step up and get things done; not to mention there’s never a dull moment with him around. His hard work and progress inside and outside of the gym doesn’t go unnoticed. We’re exceptionally proud to have you as a member of the DCL family.
Though your time with us is coming to an end we’re excited for you and your future endeavors.
Gordon: After I left the Army a year ago, I decided I was going to stay in shape and not be the guy that ETSes and immediately turns into a gelatinous mass of cottage cheese. I was admittedly skeptical that I needed a gym membership at all, because I’d been doing pushups, patrolling with 70+ lbs of lightweight crap, and generally being all I could be for the last couple years.
But I bit the bullet and joined DCL. Fast forward a year – I am more *functionally fit* and more resistant to injury than I have ever been in my life. Matt’s philosophy that fitness has to be functional – has to help you do everything else better, from skiing to marksmanship to beach volleyball – is one that’s easy to get onboard with. DCL is a great community and has been an awesome way for me to stay dangerous.
