Predestined to be a wrestler, strength “addict,” and coach from conception (thanks to his dad), Danny Clark,MovNat Master Instructor,CSCS, SFG was raised in an environment designed to forge high-level athleticism. After his wrestling career ended abruptly in college, he went on to pursue the arts of Brazilian jiu jitsu and MMA, culminating with a brown belt, a few broken teeth, and a bronze medal. Danny proudly represented Team U.S.A. in the 2012 UWW (formerly FILA) World Grappling Championships in Krakow, Poland.
Beyond the mats, Danny's years frequenting the University of Virginia’s departments of Evolutionary Biology, Archaeology, and Environmental Science fostered a unique, interdisciplinary worldview that deeply influenced his understanding of fitness and molded his approach as a team instructor for MovNat, personal movement coach, and founder at his gym,Rebar.
As a relentless truth seeker, Danny spends his time serving as Performance Director for MovNat, spending time outdoors, and “chillaxing” with his lovely wife, Abby, and future all-star son, Lochlan.
