Kyle Peters - Coach/Co-Programmer


Hometown: Northfield, OH

Why CrossFit? It fills the competitive side of me. And it continues to take me out of my comfort zone whether it be pushing passed exhaustion during a workout or moving a weight that I previously didn’t think I could.

I have always wanted to: Travel to Italy, take in all of the sights and cuisine.

When I’m not at CFD, you can find me:  Out with friends, family or volunteering at my church.

Favorite food: Ribs and of course pizza. Also any food that ends in the sound “itos” think about it…

Song that gets me pumped for a workout: “Got Paper” – Lecrae, and some kind of rap with a good beat to get me hyped.

Proudest accomplishment: I take pride in seeing CFD members smash their goals inside and outside of the walls of the gym. That’s where my joy comes from and makes me strive to become a better coach each day.

Nick Luchansky - Coach/Co-Programmer

Hometown: Canfield, OH

Why CrossFit? After playing sports from youth through high school, CrossFit filled my competitive side and gave me the extra push I needed to achieve the physical results I desired.

When I’m not at CFD, you can find me:  Hanging out with friends, eating, reading or playing video games.

Favorite food: Hot dogs and Mac ‘n’ cheese (separately, but I would not complain if they were together).

Favorite Quote: “‘You miss 100 percent of the shots you don’t take’ – Wayne Gretzky” -Michael Scott

Proudest accomplishment: Personally, the next one.  But any personal accomplishment can’t out-do any accomplishment a member achieves, especially after putting in hours of hard work.

Gordon Ip - Coach

Hometown: Oakland, California

When I’m not at CFD you can find me… Making continuous trips to the grocery store for one item. And on my PS4. Add me! (PSN: Kaeyo)

Someone would be surprised to know: I grew up quite overweight and I am still very much a fat kid at heart. There is a constant struggle within to stay balanced in food choices; both resisting the urge to splurge and being too restrictive on myself.

Favorite food: I genuinely love all foods and cuisines. I do have a favorite snack (it’s a borderline addiction) that I try not to eat multiple times a day: Flaming Hot Fritos (not to be mistaken with Cheetos!)

Proudest Accomplishment: Whenever someone accomplishes a personal best, moves better, or further progresses in their goals- whether inside or outside the gym- it inspires me to continue to progress as a coach and as an athlete. The feeling I get knowing that I had a hand in those accomplishments is the reason I love being a coach.
