Anyone following CrossFit since its early days should remember seeing a blond-haired, mild-tempered dude battling it out against beasts like Greg Amundson.
Dave Leys fell off the public scene for awhile when he left Santa Cruz for school down in LA. He made a showing at last years games having trained hard only for a month before competing. He didn't do as well as he wanted and now he is back for revenge.
Dave has moved back to Santa Cruz and is training at CrossFit Santa Cruz. This year he has dialed in his diet, his training, and his rest, which may have been the most significant piece. Before moving back up, he had only taken four days off in ten years! He is ready to battle it out in the NorCal Regional Qualifiers happening this weekend in Aromas, CA.
