Charlie Dunifer qualified through the Last Chance online option. He recently told us about how much his coach has helped him get where he is. Here's what he says:
"I'm competing at the Games, and I just wanted to see if we could give some love to the Coaches on the Games Page. I am so lucky to have found such a great trainer and great coach: Brian Yoak (pictured).
Without him, there is no way I would be in the Games. He never asked for anything in return. On the Last Chance WODs, he stayed up until 2 am trying to load the videos. At the Regionals, he was coaching guys from SPC CrossFit, because their trainer couldn't make it until later.
He answers all my texts, calls, and emails no matter the time. I told him that my goal was to get CrossFit Legacy's name on the main page. He responded, "Continue to know that my goal is to help you go as far as you want to go rather than getting me or Legacy recognition. Legacy was formed to support my family, doing something I love, and to invest in people's lives."
He has gone above and beyond his job. I put all my faith in him as a coach and trainer. He is the best I have ever seen.
I just thought CFHQ could give some love to all the coaches. I'm sure there are more out there. I feel mine is the best. Thanks."
