Coach Profile: Bailey Druck

This week’s programming is up!

Beginning this week, our intern Justine will provide us with coach profiles. Got a question you’d like to ask a coach about their CrossFit lifestyle or their backstory? Let Justine know; give her a quick shout out via email: jmack6@ycp.edu.

Bailey began coaching in 2016. He has the CrossFit Level 1 Trainer (CF-L1) and USA Weightlifting Sports Performance Coach certifications.

He began CrossFit after watching the 2011 CrossFit games on television and saw “people climbing ropes and lifting heavy barbells and thought it looked like a lot of fun.” Bailey’s dad then urged him to try CrossFit to get in shape for wrestling in high school.

Bailey remembers going into his very first CrossFit work out thinking he was in pretty good shape from wrestling. He ended up afterward lying on the ground completely exhausted.

As a coach, Bailey has learned that “CrossFit really can be for anyone.” He loves having the opportunity to coach all ages, which he says, “has shown [him] that age is hardly a barrier when it comes to pushing yourself both mentally and physically.” He also loves how CrossFit is able to bring likeminded people together on a daily basis to suffer through tough workouts that create “an environment unlike anything I’ve been a part of and really brings out the best in people.”

Bailey’s favorite movement is the snatch “because of the combination of technique, strength, and mobility that is required to make the lift happen.” He likes that even after years of snatching there are still things to work on and improve.

Since the start of his CrossFit career, Bailey competed at Youth Nationals for weightlifting in Daytona Beach and placed in the top 10 when he was 17. He went on to compete in the American Open in Reno, NV when he was 18.   

At just the age of 20, Bailey brings so much enthusiasm for the sport every time he enters the gym.  Come join the afternoon crew to get coached by Bailey during the week!

 

Sam Fullam Hosts the York Pop-up Shop at CrossFit York

Do you know someone in need of free winter clothes? Scarves, hats, coats?

Saturday and Sunday, November 18 and 19 from 8am to 5pm, CrossFit York will host the York Pop-up Shop, organized by Sam Fullam.

Regular workouts will remain scheduled that weekend.

Sam’s goal is to help those in need before winter hits. And plenty of people have more than they need, so the shop will redistribute the plenty to people who have less.

So far Samantha has collected 100 bags of donated clothing. She estimates she’ll have over 250 bags of clothing to redistribute during the Pop-up Shop. These bags include men’s, women’s, and children’s clothing along with hygiene products. She’s had 150 people help her collect clothes and sort them throughout this project.

 The event is being held for anyone in our community who may benefit from donated items. Sam said, “Anyone is welcome.”

If you’re thinking that her name sounds familiar, that’s because she’s Joe Fullam’s (THE Joe) oldest daughter. She’s also running for Hallam Borough council. So if you live in Hallam Borough, consider a vote for Samantha on November 7th. Samantha said, “Community engagement is important to me. A community that is engaged is safer, happier, and overall more efficient in making decisions that better its residents. I want to see the people of Hallam using our parks and talking to their neighbors more. My goal is to strengthen the connection between the people of the borough, the local small businesses, and the local government.” Clearly, from the work that she’s doing to help others, her heart and hands are committed to strengthening community.

Programming for the week is up. :)
