Weightlifting & Crossfit Coach

Matt Bosack

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.

Davon Geralds

Crossfit Coach

Davon has been a competitive athlete since the age of 10. He started out playing baseball and basketball, and a few years later would pick up wrestling, football and track and field. In high school, he went on to excel in wresting and football. It was football, however, that he chose as his main sport, and in 2004, he committed to playing fullback for Michigan State University.

When his football career ended, his journey in athletics and fitness was just beginning. He studied Muay Thai, which led him to Mixed Martial Arts. Through MMA, he stumbled upon CrossFit as a way to condition for fights. After getting his butt whipped during his first WOD, he knew CrossFit was something he needed to do more often.

In 2011, he moved to Boston, where he trained in CrossFit, competing in 6 to 8 competitions a year. But what started out as a desire to be a competitive athlete grew into a desire to help others when he was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. Since then, he’s dedicated himself to helping people live a healthy lifestyle.
