Abe, grew up in Steamboat Springs, CO where he excelled at a young age within the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club, ultimately placing 2nd in the 2007 Junior Olympics, 3rd in Men's Dual Moguls, and 9th in the 2007 US Nationals barely missing the cut for the US Ski Team.

With a natural love for training in the off-season, Abe was able to receive individualized programming from former olympians and olympic-level strength coaches alike. This experience of training on a program designed for his unique needs changed how he viewed physical fitness, strength, and conditioning.

Ultimately this passion pushed Abe to quit his job at Enterprise Rent-A-Car in 2014 and pursue a career as a personal trainer at Equinox in Santa Monica, California. Abe moved up quickly within Equinox where he soaked up every continuing education opportunity including FMS Level I and II, Kettlebell Athletics Level I, Precision Nutrition Level I, and USAW Level I Coach, ultimately landing him a position as a Tier X Coach. In 2019 he helped launch the Tier X Program at Equinox Santa Monica following his nomination as Equinox Personal Trainer of the Year.

When the pandemic struck, Abe moved his clientele virtual to accommodate the closure of gyms and lack of in-person training.

Through his exposure to the digital medium, and realization that training could be equally effective in a remote setting, Abe developed The Ski System and got to work immediately formulating the programs you’ll find on www.getskisystem.com

Abe now resides in San Diego, California where he trains and competes in jiu jitsu, operates The Ski System, and trains clients individually from his home gym as well as online via his business Abe Maynard Coaching.

Growing up in West Michigan, David Vanderveen and his older brother learned how to surf among the sometimes ferocious fresh-water waves created during storms on Lake Michigan. He was arrested for skateboarding in empty city pools and was kicked out of school three times—twice for his poetry (once in 7th grade and again during his junior year at Wheaton College) and once for his exceptional cocktail mixology skills (also in 7th grade, but not at Wheaton). After some negotiations and promises to stop with the poetry, David matriculated to and graduated from Calvin College, Wheaton’s sister school, with degrees in philosophy and political science.

Due to a market shortage of philosophy career positions, he worked as an daily news editor and hand model in Japan, a director of public affairs in Michigan, co-founder of a bespoke crystal-powered chakra aligning jewelry company in the Midwest, a marketing director in the Napa Valley, the co-founder of a chaotic Venezuelan biotech and pharmaceutical company, a grassroots political organizer, an exporter of artificial heart valves to Pakistan, a technology sales and marketing executive, and chief technology officer at a series of small and large tech companies. David participated in the Dot-Com revolution (neither proletariat nor bourgeoisie) and briefly owned a small Red Bull distributorship as part of said revolution. Never one to quit, he failed to get off the Dot-Com merry-go-round before the music ran out. He left tech when the founder of Znetix, where David was the CTO, was arrested for the largest case of investor fraud in Washington State’s history. Oh, and David also co-founded XS, a global energy drink brand that has generated over US $2 billion in revenue, sold more than one billion cans, and shared over US$500 million in profits with an army of independent business owners around the world.

David has leapt from the frying pan into the fire multiple times and lived to tell about it. He doesn’t
recommend it. That said, if you’re interested in a career-as-roller-coaster-ride and life as an adventure, David has a lot to offer.

Dusty is the co-owner and head gymnastics coach of DogTown CrossFit in Culver City, California. By the age of seven, he had started an active athletic regimen that has continued throughout his life. At thirteen, Dusty gave up a host of other sports to focus on Artistic Gymnastics. He was a very successful gymnast, and after his father’s job promotion and relocation to Northern California, he began to train at Stanford University under two-time world champion Tong Fei.

In college, he competed in NCAA Division I men’s gymnastics and scored a NCAA record perfect 10 on the still rings. After one more year of competition, he retired due to injury. He then traveled the world starring in a Cirque du Soleil-type live show before settling in Los Angeles and doing some stunt work in films.

Dusty trains anyone and everyone, from your everyday Joe to elite CrossFitters, athletes, and teams. In the last few years he has worked with Lindsey Valenzuela, Kenneth Leverich, Noah Ohlsen, Ruth Anderson Horrell, Tommy Hackenbruck and the UTE CrossFit Team.

A former college wrestler from a family of standout athletes, Chris Spealler quickly became one of CrossFit’s leading ambassadors, impressing and inspiring newcomers to the sport with his underdog spirit, unequaled work ethic, and warm personality. A competitor at the very first CrossFit Games in 2007, he would eventually collect a pair of Southwest Regional titles and three Top 10 finishes at the Games (2007, 2008, 2010), along with a “Spirit of the Games” award in 2010.

One of Speal’s most inspiring achievements came in 2014, when—at age 35 and against tougher competition than ever before—he returned to finish 2nd at Regionals and punch his ticket to the Games for a seventh time. He was the only performer from the ’07 Games who was also in the 2014 field. Three years later, at the ‘17 Games, Chris reached the podium in the Masters 35-39 division, showcasing the skills that have made him a true legend of the sport.

Though he’s now retired from competition, Spealler continues to train and coach at CrossFit Park City in Utah.
