Listen to a podcast with Dave and Darlene about their background and philosophy:

Dave, Darlene & Rogue

Dave and Darlene moved to Hayward in 2007, eager to embrace the beauty and quiet of the northwoods. But after long careers in metropolitan law enforcement and newspaper journalism, it didn’t take long before they missed the adrenalin rush of new challenges.

Dave's background as a police trainer, coupled with his long involvement in competitive endurance sports (triathlons, bike - and inline skate racing) drew him to kettlebell training.

By 2008, he was an RKC-certified kettlebell instructor with a growing legion of followers.  After outgrowing three spaces in three years, the Hayward Kettlebell Club moved into our current building in late 2011.

Darlene, who had no previous involvement  in competitive sports, focused her energies on nutritional health and overall fitness. The science, methodology and results of CrossFit resonated with everything they’d learned. In 2012, CrossCut CrossFit became one of the early CrossFit affiliates.

The gym's CrossFit affiliation ended in summer 2019 to allow Dave and Darlene to ease into more retirement time. Their commitment to fitness, however, remains unwavering.

Rogue, our Wire-haired Pointing Griffon, arrived in 2015 as chief sock thief and crotch inspector. He excels at greeting athletes and calming them after workouts with his insistence on being adored.
