DFX Owner & Coach

Ashley Denton

CFL2, CrossFit Movement and Mobility, USAW-L1

What do you enjoy most about coaching?
I love coaching the Olympic lifts, the Snatch and the Clean and Jerk. There are so many nuances to learning these lifts and I love when positioning or timing finally “clicks” for the athlete.

In which area do you excel the most in your job?
I try really hard to make sure everyone feels like they fit in and are welcome. It’s important for everyone to have a place where they feel like they can relax and have a good time. That’s my goal for our members. I want them to get strong, get fit, but have a whole lot of fun while doing it.

When did you start CrossFit and when did you start coaching CrossFit?
I started CrossFit in 2007 and started coaching in 2008.

Do you have a career outside of CrossFit? If so, what is it?
I am a partner and COO of DiamondFit Performance/DFX CrossFit
