Coach Denney was first introduced to CrossFit over 6 years ago by Ricky Frausto of CrossFit Vise. After a very diverse athletic career - winning a National Championship in Football at the University of Nebraska, and a North Central Region Championship in Soccer at Rockhurst University, Denney has now gone on to use the CrossFit methodology that made his career so successful by opening CrossFit Diem in Lenexa, KS.
From the humble beginnings of his own garage and what was once Dojo Elite Fitness, Coach Denney's vision has now grown into one of the newest, and well respected CrossFit boxes in the Kansas City area. His experiences as a multi-sport athlete in high school and college, as well as his mixed martial arts career have given Denney a unique approach to this new "sport of fitness." Not only does Coach Denney attribute HIS success to CrossFit, but he has also been blessed with the opportunity to use his knowledge and experiences to assist in the development of other collegiate athletes as a strength/conditioning consultant for several teams. Denney also works with two current UFC fighters - Jake Ellenberger and Jason Brilz.
But, whether you're a competitive athlete, professional fighter, or wanting to build the "fittest" you possible - you won't find a better place to do it than CrossFit Diem. Coach Denney's passion and experience will help mold you into the warrior you've always wanted to be! CrossFit Diem - Forging elite mind, body, and soul daily!
