We are thrilled to introduce our newest coach, Chaz Dempsey, whose incredible journey and passion for fitness have led him to our enduraLAB community. Chaz brings an impressive array of feats of strength and endurance, including a 265lb snatch, a 330 clean & jerk, and a remarkable 450lb back squat. His qualifications as an OPEX coach and Functional Range Conditioning mobility specialist make him a valuable addition to our coaching team.
Chaz's life story is one of dedication and transformation. Growing up as a Navy brat, he was exposed to the importance of physical fitness early on, but it was in the weight room where he found his true calling. He transitioned from powerlifting to Olympic Weightlifting, competing and coaching in CrossFit along the way. However, a wrist injury led him to shift his focus to his aerospace engineering career in the defense industry. Yet, 2023 marked a turning point for Chaz as he realized the cost of his professional success on his personal life and health. This realization sparked a desire for change, not only for himself but also for others facing similar challenges.
Chaz's passion for teaching, especially in the realm of physical fitness and strength sports, is boundless. He believes in the incredible potential of the human body and is dedicated to helping individuals of all fitness levels achieve things they may have never thought possible. Chaz Dempsey is more than just a coach; he's a motivator, a mentor, and a true advocate for a healthier, stronger, and more fulfilling life. Welcome, Chaz, to our enduraLAB family!
