Davon Geralds

Crossfit Coach

  • Certifications
  • CrossFit Level 1 Trainer

I have been playing sports competitively since the age of 10. I started out playing baseball and basketball, and a few years later I would pick up wrestling, football and track and field. In high school, I would go on to excel in wresting and football but choose football as my main sport. In 2004, I committed to playing fullback for Michigan State University. When my football career ended, I decided to study Muay Thai, which led me into Mixed Martial Arts. Thru MMA I stumbled upon CrossFit as a way to condition for fights. After getting my butt whipped during my first Wod, I knew CrossFit was something I needed to do more often. In 2011, I moved to Boston, where I trained competitively in CrossFit, doing about 6 to 8 competitions a year. I decided to become a CrossFit coach after I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. Since then, I’ve had a passion for helping people live a heathy lifestyle.

Matt Bosack

Weightlifting Coach

  • Certifications
  • CrossFit Level 1 Trainer
  • CrossFit Powerlifting
  • USAW Club Coach

Matt is a coach for Downtown LA Weightlifting. When he’s not training or coaching, he actively competes in both CrossFit and Weightlifting.

As an Army brat, Matt grew up all over the world. He was a three-sport athlete in high school where he ran cross-country, wrestled, and played baseball. Fitness continued to be very important in college and beyond, but after doing the globo-gym routine for years, he wanted a change.

After his first CrossFit workout, he was hooked. Getting into CrossFit was a life-changing experience, and now he wants to share that with everyone. He genuinely believes that every person – no matter their age, size, or athletic ability – can benefit from CrossFit, and he applies that passion in his coaching.

CrossFit is how Matt was first introduced to Weightlifting, and his interest in the sport grew quickly. He trained under the fine coaches at Waxman’s Gym in Lawndale, California, and advanced his knowledge further through seminars and training camps with some of the world’s greatest coaches and weightlifters, including Zygmunt Smalcerz, Ilya Ilyin, Dmitry Klokov, Vasily Polovnikov, Oksana Slivenko, and Vladirmir Safonov. Having learned under the Russian system of weightlifting, he applies those foundations and core concepts in the training and programs created for DTLAW.
