Fun Fact or quote:

I was in choir in High School – Tenor, I am a new dad to the most precious angel in the whole world.

Barrett started his fitness career at a young age. He participated in youth football and baseball throughout his high school career and was captain of his collegiate football team. Barrett earned a BS in Physical Education and Health in 2010 and taught high school PE for just under 5 years. When he and Samantha lived in Milwaukee, they lived a block from a CrossFit gym. After starting up as members, Barrett quickly realized this was where he wanted to be. He left teaching and moved to Madison to open CrossFit Big Dane in June of 2014.
What you love about coaching/working at Big Dane: 
“I like helping someone get their “first” of their goal or of a movement. I founded the gym and it has really become my lifestyle. The community that has developed is unmatched. It makes you feel like you’re already part of the family. There are normal folks, young and old people performing at all levels; everyone supports each other no matter what.”
