Dan Bailey Returns for the 2020 CrossFit Games Competition Season
Dan Bailey returns for the 2020 CrossFit Games competition season!
Dan Bailey has been one of the most successful competitors in all of CrossFit. His accomplishments include: 1) Winning the first ever CrossFit Games; 2) Winning the second ever CrossFit Games; 3) Being named one of “The 50 Most Influential People” by Men’s Health magazine; 4) A record breaking 5th place finish at the 2016 Mr. Olympia contest; 5) A record setting 7th place finish at the 2017 Mr. Universe contest;
6) A record setting 9th place finish at the 2018 Mr.
7) An incredible 10th place finish at the 2019 IFBB Pro Bodybuilding competition; 8) An amazing 11th place finish at the 2020 IFBB Professional Figure competition.
He is currently ranked #1 in the world by Men’s Fitness Magazine. Dan Bailey was born and raised in New Jersey, but now resides in Colorado Springs where he trains with his brother Ryan. They compete under the name Rogue Fitness.
In addition to being a professional athlete, Dan Bailey is also a certified personal trainer through the National Strength & Conditioning Association (NSCA). He has worked with countless professional athletes in a one-on-one setting, and has also developed a customized training program that has been used by men, women, and children of all ages and abilities to achieve their fitness goals.
Even as a self-proclaimed “old man” at the ripe age of 34, he still has his sights set on winning the CrossFit Games this year. He has been training with his younger brother for the past few months with the goal of improving upon his 10th place finish in last year’s competition.
Despite his successes in the fitness world, he still doesn’t get a lot of credit for all of the work that he has done to help people lead healthier lifestyles. He is constantly having to fend off accusations from jealous “trolls” who accuse him of juicing and even claim that he is a computer generated character.
He recently won his age group in the Mr. Olympia competition, making him one of the top 5 professional bodybuilders in the world. He also plans to compete at this year’s Mr. World competition and finish in the top 10, which would qualify him to compete at the 2020 Mr. Universe competition.
With a strict diet, several hours of training per day, and no signs of slowing down, he has his sights set on winning the CrossFit Games this year. He is also in the middle of developing an online learning platform designed to teach others how to achieve elite fitness levels and live a healthier lifestyle.
One of the things that sets him apart from other professional athletes is that he has always been willing to help others. He is known for taking the time to talk to aspiring bodybuilders and fitness enthusiasts on social media, and often shares tips that he has learned throughout his own career.
Despite all of his accomplishments, he still doesn’t get a lot of credit for all of the work that he has done to help people lead healthier lifestyles. He is constantly having to fend off accusations from jealous trolls who accuse him of juicing and even claim that he is a computer generated character.
Personal Life: Although his day-to-day life is mostly focused on training, eating, and sleeping, he still tries to make time for friends and family. He keeps in touch with past training partners and competitors, despite many of them no longer being in the sport due to injuries. He also mentors a young, up-and-coming bodybuilder who lives in his hometown of Cranford, New Jersey.
He used to have a girlfriend several years ago, but they broke up due to the amount of time he had to spend training. He has no plans to get back into a relationship any time soon, claiming that his focus needs to be on winning the CrossFit Games.
The one thing he misses about not having a significant other is not having anyone to go out to eat with after a hard workout. As a result, he has become somewhat of a connoisseur of takeout food, often ordering thousands of dollars worth of food from various restaurants in a single day. His favorites are Chinese, sushi, and anything Mexican.
He hopes to achieve his goal of winning the CrossFit Games within the next few years. Once he reaches that pinnacle, he plans to open a chain of fitness gyms around the world and help people achieve their physical fitness goals.
He has been approached by a few reality television shows about doing a show centering on his life, but he turned them down due to the lack of time that it would take away from training, as well as potential violations of his privacy. He is also worried that being on TV would make him a bigger target for trolls and cyberbullies.
He currently lives in a small townhouse in Seattle with a few roommates. Outside of pro competitions, he spends most of his time at a 24-hour gym called Anytime Fitness.
While he is making steps towards his ultimate dream, he still feels that something is missing from his life. He gets the impression that life is too short to spend all of your time focusing on one goal and doesn’t want his entire life to be about only one thing. He holds no regrets on how he has chosen to live his life, claiming that all his experiences have brought him to where he is today. For now, he is content in knowing that he is exactly where he wants to be in life.
