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.
Athlete of the Month: Taylor Allen
Since Taylor's arrival at DCL, she has made tremendous progress in all aspects of the sport. It has been a pleasure having her as one of our athletes and watching her grow in CrossFit. She makes it easy for us to do our job as coaches because she is a quick learner and is always fun to be around!
Hey everyone, I'm Taylor. I'm 25, originally from Michigan, and currently an Army Nurse here at Ft Campbell. I came to Clarksville in October last year and had no idea how I'd start to meet people. The first thing I did was join DCL. I figured if I didn't know anyone I'd at least be in shape. I'd never done Crossfit before and truthfully usually stuck to running for my only form of exercise. I can honestly say the last time I'd lifted anything was probably high school softball. I was nervous to put myself out there but instantly the culture of DCL welcomed me in and I was sold.
My day often centers around when I can get to the gym. I went from not being able to do a pull-up to doing 50 in a normal workout. With my nursing schedule I never expected to be able to stick with it but Matt and the DCL coaches have done everything possible to get me the instruction and motivation I need even when I'm exhausted after a 12 hr shift.
DCL has made me a healthier, stronger person but I've also fallen in love with the people. Thanks for welcoming me and Gordon in and making Clarksville feel like home.
