CrossFit Five By Five started out as Dean’s Gym with workouts in the park and wherever we could find room. As it grew I carved out room in an old farm shed, laid down some mats, got some barbells and rings and worked hard in the ol’ barn. Now in 2017, the gym became a CrossFit affiliate and we still learn, grow and stretch ourselves for daily improvement.
Dean grew up in Stayton playing sports and being active all his life. He stumbled across CrossFit in 2008 in a magazine article that described the workout as leaving the client “ just NOT right the rest of the day!” So he had to try it and he was hooked. He got his Level 1 Certification in 2011 and has been training people ever since and enjoys it most when they commit and see results for themselves.
