This week I’m featuring an inspiring CrossFit athlete named Sam Dancer. I saw him compete at the CrossFit Games in Carson, CA last year, but really didn’t know much about his story until this week when I stumbled upon the trailer for a documentary about him called “The Power Of Love“.
Dancer is from Quincy, Illinois where he now runs a gym called CrossFit Q Town with his wife Jennie. Dancer is breaking stereotypes with something as little as painting his nails and not being afraid to express himself through colour. He coaches and inspires children and adults to be the best they can be and gives them the strength to find a confidence they never thought possible. The trailer for this documentary is actually quite touching and he seems like he is just as attractive on the inside (if not more) as he is on the outside. “There’s nothing socially acceptable about a man painting his nails, especially here in Quincy, Illinois… I started to figure out what love was, and that it was this cure all for everything, and I wanted to share that. And this ended up being the perfect platform for that.”
Check out his pictures and videos below. Keep up the good work, Sam!
