Matt Dean

CrossFit Trainer

Education: St. Olaf College: BA Philosophy, Apple Valley High School

Certifications: CrossFit Level 1 Trainer, Team Spartacus: Clean & Jerk, Snatch Seminars and CF Judging

Interests: Spending quality time with family and friends...anything outdoors – fishing, boating, intramural sports.

Coaching Philosophy: I had been participating in competitive sports for the better portion of my life and it all came to a halt after graduating college. I started going to the local Globo-gym trying to stay in shape but I wasn’t getting much out of it and I felt like something was missing. I joined Crossfit Templar in January 2012 and the rest was history – I was officially addicted! I had been missing the feeling of camaraderie and competitiveness that you get when you're part of a team. To me, the athletes at CrossFit Templar make up our team where we get to push and help each other to reach our fitness goals. Everyday brings a new workout with different functional movements that are safe and applicable to your everyday life. My goal is to put all of our athletes in the best position to start, meet, and exceed their personal goals in fitness – while having a great time doing it!! High School 3 Sport Athlete in Football,
