Dave Castro

San Jose native and ex-Navy Seal, Dave Castro, is the Co-Director of Training and Games Director for CrossFit HQ. He has been a staple alongside Greg Glassman ever since the CrossFit Games were held for the first time at his parent’s ranch in Aromas, CA. Always one to create an impressive spectacle and experience, it’s no wonder CrossFit HQ has him at the helm of the CrossFit Games, and more broadly, the CrossFit experience.
