Darren is a native to Lompoc, moving here when he was 2. He has been active for the majority of his life. From running around the school yard, catching lizards and climbing every tree he could find, he found a passion for sports at an early age. As a high school and collegiate athlete, he found a love for body mechanics and physiology.
He earned BS in Kinesiology Exercise Science from CSU Northridge and began personal training. In 2010, Darren was introduced to CrossFit. Like most first timers, he was flat on his back and humbled by the experience, but motivated to improve. He worked hard and saw the benefits CrossFit could offer his community. Darren knew he wanted to bring those benefits to Lompoc, and the Central Coast.
Now, he enjoys his time with his wife, Caitlin and daughter, Taylor, who can all be found at CrossFit Ohana on any given day.
