Owner/Head Coach Paul Dyck has been a CrossFitter for nearly a decade and specializes in “Helping people realize they are capable of more than they thought they were.” Everyone here knows that Paul’s dedication to Starke is legendary. “When I’m not at the gym, I’m probably working on it trying to make it better for our athletes,” he says. “I’m passionate about coaching. I love working with any athlete at any level. There’s nothing else I’d rather be doing.”

Mostly, Paul loves seeing progress. “Progress doesn’t happen overnight, and it will always take work to get better, but when an athlete gets their first pull up, handstand push up, toe to bar, or double under, the look on their face and the sense of accomplishment can be felt across the room,” he says.

Paul’s own athletic background includes playing soccer for 10 years, as well as racing motocross, mountain bikes, and road bikes (cycling). He competed in Kickboxing for six years, and has completed countless 5k, 10k, and half marathon events. He’s competed in multiple 1-3 day adventure races, in sprint and Olympic distance duathlons and triathlons, and four separate Ironman events. Oh, and also in Cyclocross, Weightlifting and CrossFit competitions. He spent four years recovering from serious injuries related to motocross and rock climbing accidents—and credits CrossFit with helping him to heal.

When not CrossFitting, you’ll most likely find Paul at home, spending quality time with wife Lorrie and daughter Lexa. “Our whole family spends a lot of time at the gym, and it’s hard to leave with so many awesome people there.”

One of Paul’s strongest beliefs and mottos for life and training is “Doing more isn’t better, doing less better is more”.
