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 Raleigh Court, CrossFit Dunbar Cave Lab is set to serve the Clarksville, Fort Campbell, and Oak Grove communities.

Athlete of the Month:

Joseph Ibrahim


“Almost 4 years ago, I reached the most I’ve ever weighed, which was 325 lbs. After realizing I needed to change to become healthy, I managed to lose over a hundred pounds by diet alone. Although I was able to lose a good amount of weight, I was still weak and lazy, which I knew had to change, but physical activity was not something I was accustomed to. If you asked anyone who was close to me, you would know how surprised they all were when they found out I, willingly, wanted to start working out. I used to HATE doing anything that involved any physical activity. To give y’all a perspective of how much I hated physical activity, when I was in grade school, I would fake injuries and forge my parents signature to write a note to get out of P.E. class. I was THAT kid. Deep down I always wanted to start getting active, but I honestly did not know where to start. I was extremely intimidated by gyms because I had no muscles, psychologically not physically, and I was afraid of being judged for not fitting in because I didn’t know how to workout and everyone else was ripped. It wasn’t until my loving aunt dragged to the DCL where things changed for me. I had heard of CrossFit before coming to DCL, which made me want to opt out of coming even more, but after my first class, I knew I would be able to stick with it. I had never been in a gym where I didn’t feel like I was being judged for being a stranger when it came to physical activity, which awoke the athletic side of me. After my first class, I told myself that this was what I was looking for in a gym, a place where I wouldn’t feel judged for starting at the bottom. I went from someone who had never done a proper squat before in his entire life to someone who tried to drag other people to the gym for them to have the same eye-opening experience I did when I first started working out at DCL. Each upcoming week, I constantly amaze myself at how far I have come in my fitness journey and how excited I am to keep going and to keep getting stronger. It’s all about them gains brooo.”
