Matt Mitchell is the head coach and lead programmer at CrossFit Dedication. He was a multi-sport athlete growing up in Michigan, having played football, basketball, and baseball, as well as running on the track team in High School.
But his true love was golf (of all things!), so he enrolled at Ferris State University to earn a degree in Professional Golf Management. He continued to run on the track team while at Ferris State, and after graduation spent seven years as a golf pro.
He returned to school at Wright State University for a degree in Business Education, and relaunched his career as a high school teacher and Track and Field coach. He took up racing for himself again as well, competing in marathons, triathlons, and cycling races. He also started dabbling in this newfangled thing called CrossFit.
After his teaching and coaching positions fell victim to budget cuts, Matt took an inventory of his background and education in coaching, athletic performance, education and business. He realized then what he was supposed to be doing.
And so CrossFit Dedication was born!
Matt has continued his education and development as a coach since opening the doors of CFD in 2013, receiving his CrossFit Level 2 and CrossFit Endurance certifications. He has found his true passion in helping people to enhance and improve their lives through increased physical fitness.
