Ever since Dion was a kid, he has always been involved in basketball. He was involved in both basketball and track &field in high school and ran the 300m hurdles and 400m sprint.

Dion is originally from central florida( Orlando, Daytona Beach) but moved up to the DMV area back in 2014 and then again in 2016 for work. He is a Certified Occupational Therapist Assistant. He is currently not married(yet)!. He has a wonderful girlfriend and swolemate named Allison that introduced him to Crossfit. He was one of those usual gym goers. He came to Hardshells when he moved from Silver Spring to Gaithersburg.

What he likes about Crossfit? “I love everything about Crossfit! How its effective in both strength and conditioning with any sport, as well as bringing the community together for healthy competition and lifestyle changes. I’ve drank the kool-aid!” he said

When Dion was in Florida he was at several boxes that had no AC and having AC during WODs is a plus. And he is happy that Hardshells is a fully air conditioned gym. He loves the space and how supportive every one is. Hardshells has a great community.

He usually works out with the 5 or 6 pm class
