Dennis began following CrossFit in the summer of 2007 thanks to a fellow SWAT team member who found this curious new way of training.
After reading material on the CrossFit.com website, subscribing to the CrossFit Journal, and watching many of the demo videos, he transitioned over to the CrossFit style of fitness training and follows it to this day. Dennis was a scholarship college football player who became a police officer eventually instructing and certifying other officers in the area of physical fitness. Dennis joined Off the Grid as a member several years ago after performing CrossFit workouts in traditional gym settings. Dennis wanted to continue to grow as an athlete and instructor and became a member of the Off the Grid coaching staff.
Dennis has a M.A. (Criminal Justice) and M.P.A. (Public Administration) from Rutgers University, a B.A. (Law and Justice) from Rowan University, and is a certified New Jersey Police Training Commission Instructor with an added specialization as a physical fitness instructor. Dennis remains on staff at the Gloucester Count Police Academy as he looks to assist others, inside and outside of CrossFit, to lead an active lifestyle. Dennis enjoys welcoming new members to Off the Grid as he works hard to ease apprehension about this new method of training. He is a CF-L1, CF-L2 Trainer, and attended the CrossFit Weightlifting Trainer Course and the CrossFit Mobility Trainer Course. Dennis is also married with two beautiful daughters.
