Armstrong, Danya.jpg


I grew up in Canada competing in dance, which led me into a professional musical theater career from my late teens through twenties. During that time I lived all over the world performing in musicals such as Grease, Mama Mia, 42nd Street, and many more. In 2007, I met my husband and left my career to move to the United States with him, and this is when my CrossFit career began. I have been a competitive CrossFit athlete for over 13 years and I still love the sport. I am also a mom of two beautiful girls and a military spouse, so I understand that balancing time for yourself to train can be challenging. I am thrilled to be part of the team at CrossFit NBHD and can’t wait to help you become the athlete you aspire to be.
