DAN ROSE – Owner/Head Coach (USA Weightlifting National Coach)

All training programs are developed and coached by or under the direct supervision of head coach, Dan Rose. Coach Dan is a National Coach through USA Weightlifting, the governing body of the sport of Weightlifting in the Olympics. He has coached multiple State and National Champion weightlifters. Coach Dan has been involved in weightlifting and athletic training for 25 years, and is a 2014 Masters World Weightlifting Champion.  Coach Dan is also a Crossfit L1 Trainer, and an instructor of USA Weightlifting Coaching Education Certifications.  Dan writes strength programs for Crossfit boxes, and teaches weightlifting clinics on a regular basis.

Dan has trained, trained with, and been trained by Olympians, world champion powerlifters, and high level bodybuilders. Dan's competitive background includes gymnastics, football, basketball, track and field, and of course weightlifting. Using this extensive background and experience, Coach Dan develops individual programs for each sport specific athlete and weightlifter. Open communication is forever ongoing with each individual athlete, as programs continue to evolve with the best interest of each athlete always the top priority.

Coach Dan first got involved in health and fitness in 1992 at the age of 14, after having been a competitive gymnast during middle school. He started weight training to gain size, strength, and speed for football and basketball. As part of his weight training regimen, he learned the Olympic lifts from his coach, Jerry Arline, Sr.

    After graduating high school in 1994, he began to devote more attention to the Olympic lifts. In the summer of 1995, after only 6 months of serious training, he entered and won his first weightlifting competition. That same year, he won the Sunshine State Games, and placed 8th at the American Open. In 1996, he placed 3rd at Jr Nationals, won the Florida State Championships, and placed 3rd at Sr Nationals(taking the silver medal in the snatch). He was then invited to be a summer resident at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs.

     A series of injuries combined with college, life, and work kept him out of competition for the next several years, but he kept up with his training and involvement in health and fitness by participating in team sports and training alongside world champion powerlifters and world class Olympic Weightlifters, bodybuilders, and strongmen. He has worked in the fitness industry for the last 15 plus years dealing with nutrition, equipment manufacturing and sales, personal training, and coaching the Olympic lifts.

     In 2011, 8 months after a complete ACL reconstruction and meniscus repair, he competed at the Master's Pan American Championships. He took 1st place and won Best Lifter while setting new records in the Snatch, Clean and Jerk, and Total as a 62kg lifter. He maintains those records today.

In September of 2014, Dan traveled to Copenhagen, Denmark where he became World Champion by winning Gold in the Snatch, Clean & Jerk, and Total at the 2014 Masters World Weightlifting Championships.
