w.o.d.welder Athlete - Darian Sperry

Darian Sperry

I am 20 years old from Huntington, WV, where I am the Lead Coach at Crossfit Huntington and where I am a full time student at Marshall University. I joined Crossfit almost two years ago after a series of health complications that I faced my Senior year of high school. I fell in love with Crossfit, health, nutrition, and fitness. Since then, I have competed in many competitions. My biggest accomplishment so far has been placing 16th as an Individual at my first Regional Competition in the Mid Atlantic Region and qualifying for the American Open and Junior Nationals in Weightlifting (58 kg class). I love Olympic Lifting and any workouts that pair heavy lifts with gymnastics. My favorite benchmarks are Cindy and Nate. My main goal is to be a good role model through my actions and words as a competitive athlete, coach, friend, and family member. I want people to realize how hard work does pay off, and being rewarded for your hard work means so much more than having something given to you. I also love aiding in people's nutrition on the side. Crossfit allowed me to meet my boyfriend, find a passion that makes my quality of life better, and make so many great relationships with new friends.
