Danielle Dunlap

Coach, 2017 CrossFit Open Competitor

CrossFit helped make me whole again.

After graduating from college, moving back home and getting caught up in binge drinking, I found myself depressed and praying for a healthy change. I had heard about CrossFit and tried a gym in the area. Like many others, I was hooked by the community and the workouts. I was quickly asked to do a competition & that fueled my fire to be a competitive athlete.

After two years of trying to make regionals, 2017 was my breakthrough. Before competing I attended Ben Bergeron’s camp. His drive for excellence was contagious. I wanted my training to be on point and the only thing I had left to do was dial in was my nutrition. I started working with a nutrition company and quickly developed a passion to learn more and help others in their nutrition journey.

The best part about my job as a nutrition coach is that I get to wake up and do something that I love every day. At RX Nutrition Coaching we get to encourage our clients, watch them grow and succeed in their health journey and that inspires me to be the best coach, nutritionist, and athlete that I can be.

I am starting an exciting new chapter in my life. I am becoming a new mom and moving to North Carolina with my husband! When we’re not in the gym, we love spending time boating, being with family and friends, reading, exploring our faith, traveling, and watching The Office.
