The Highest Form of Leadership

This week we are joined by Logan Gelbrich and Danny Lesslie of Deuce Gym in sunny Venice, Italy.  I’m sorry that’s actually a typo, that’s actually going to be Venice, California. Chances are if you’ve trained at Deuce you’ve experienced the unique culture that flows through this no frills garage gym.

Danny and Logan take us through their humble beginnings all the way to current day.  Today, their success has afforded them opportunities such as the roll our of their new Coach’s Prep Course. But according to these reluctant A-listers, life isn’t just about bottle service training celebrities.  It’s mostly that, but it’s also mostly about creating a culture that drives purpose in every person who dips a toe in into the pool of  strength and conditioning.


You can follow Logan Gelbrich @FunctionalCoach or Danny Lesslie @DannyLesslie.  Do any search of Deuce Gym and you’ll easily find links to inspire and motivate you to suck less everyday. Head to http://www.deucegym.com/programs/specialty-programs/coaches-prep/ for more info on the Deuce Coach’s Prep course!

With her existing background in powerlifting and football, she became a natural devotee to CFFB/PowerAthlete and testament to it's effectiveness. In 2012, she left D.C. and headed for the state named after her to be a part of the CrossFit Football Seminar Staff and a Jedi of Power Athlete HQ. Cali currently resides in Seattle where she works full time in law enforcement.

    You talk puns without mentioning The Director Of Puns? Must be keeping too low of a profile. We shall ratchet the effort to levels of Shock And Awe.

    I wish you would have let them finish one sentence without interrupting! Lol. I think your guests said 10 words in the entire 1:30:00
