    Daniel is too rough! Running like the wind, surrounded by snow, in nothing but shorts and a T-shirt. I always say it when Daniel is on the site, but it can’t be said enough. There aren’t many people as kind, thoughtful and friendly as Daniel Cooper. He looks out for everybody, always has a helping hand to lend, and never has a negative thing to say about anyone. He works hard, prioritizing his health and fitness, but also has a great grasp on priorities and perspective. So proud to have this guy at CFHSV! ☺️

    Look at that cute snow bunny! Coop don’t play when it comes to that track. He wears it out every time! No questions asked, that dude goin hard. Once he gets back in the gym he’s all smiles and on to the WOD. Daniel has come a long way and it’s been fun to watch. He’s about as selfless a guy I’ve ever met. All he does is think of those around him and he’ll do anything for ya. Keep wearin out that track bro!!

    Daniel! This was the only guy who ran all morning in that snow! Nothing slows this guy down! It’s always fun to watch him run, but it was even better with the snowy background. Daniel has to be one of the nicest guys I’ve ever met! He’s always encouraging to those around him and he seems to always have a smile and kind word as he walks in the gym. He’s a great athlete and he has big shoes to fill, but his oldest daughter is right on his heels when it comes to CrossFit! Daniel, keep setting that good example and stay ahead of her while you can! 😉

    You guys are the best. Thank you for all the kind words and encouragement. The Cooper household has found many life long friends at Crossfit Huntsville and couldn’t be more proud to call it home.

    Coop is the man. He can absolutely fly on that pavement. Rain or shine, or even snow, you will find Coop wearing that pavement out. He is a great athlete, but an even better person. So glad you and the rest of the Coopers are here at CFHSV.

    24:50 Rx+ (7/7/16 – 22:45 @ 115#)

    Daniel doing what he does best, running like the wind! He’s one of the fastest guys in the gym, he’ll speed right by you without you even noticing. He’s also one of the kindest most genuine guys you’ll ever meet. Keep up the awesome work Daniel!
