Dan Bailey, born in 1984, in Uniontown, Ohio, USA, is an American accomplished Olympic lifter and a top performing athlete in CrossFit — a strength and conditioning program using constantly varied, functional movements performed at high intensity.
In 2010, the CrossFit world met Bailey at the Arnold Classic. He was judged well before he entered the first couplet of that game-changing day.
It would take Bailey another year of refinement to make it past the Regional competition after missing the cut in 2010. Bailey is more than willing to learn from experience. Experiences that have led him since to the CrossFit Games in 2011 where he took sixth place overall.
In 2012, Bailey was one of the top four competitors for title of “Fittest Man On Earth.”
