Our Coaches

Danny Brand
Owner, CrossFit L1 Trainer

A few years ago, the corporate headquarters of a company called CrossFit Inc. asked my company for a software development project bid. I had never heard of them before. They ultimately didn’t pursue the project, but my research left me wondering why CrossFit had gained such widespread popularity in just a few years. It also led me to recognize that I had put on quite a few pounds since my college days. I had to check this CrossFit thing out for myself.

I discovered first hand that the primary reason for its popularity is this: It works. CrossFit produces big transformations in body & soul. People of every shape, size, and background, who put in the effort, get stronger, leaner, faster, more flexible, and gain more confidence in their ability to do hard things. I hope you’ll join us at CrossFit Lehi to experience it for yourself.

CrossFit L1 Trainer

I was introduced to CrossFit by my sister, Shyanne. She is a CrossFit trainer and a huge inspiration to me. Prior to starting, I felt like I needed to get to a certain physical level before stepping into a CrossFit gym, but I learned that CrossFit is designed for all experience levels.

Once I set my fears aside and tried it out, there was no turning back! Ten months later I became a trainer myself. I fell in love with CrossFit. It has rehabilitated my old injuries and given me results that I didn’t think were possible. CrossFit works. I just wish I had tried it sooner.


Marc Weaver
CrossFit L1 Trainer
I have always been active in sports and love competition. I was a sprinter (200m & 400m) at UVU but was only able to run for one year and I needed something else to replace that fun, athletic and competitive atmosphere. I was introduced to CrossFit by some friends who told me it was right up my alley. They were right and it only took one class to realize it was a perfect fit for me. I love how the workouts are measured, which makes me accountable and driven to always improve. I love that I have a coach critiquing and helping me improve my overall fitness. I also love that I have a community of other CrossFitters who are always encouraging me and pushing me to work harder.

I’m certified as a CrossFit Level One Trainer and have had the opportunity to travel to more than 50 CrossFit boxes across North America. I’ve seen many styles of training and programming and I hope to incorporate all I’ve learned in my training of all of you at CrossFit Lehi. When I’m not working out, I love spending time with my amazing wife and our three wonderful children.
