Nick Barr

Originally from Washington, DC, Nick played basketball and lacrosse in high school and did some basic weight training, frequently skipping leg day. Nick studied Tibetan Buddhism at Columbia University before decamping for Southeast Asia for a few years, where he read an article about CrossFit and began following the main-site WODs in make-shift gyms in Laos and Thailand. After moving to LA for grad school, Nick was excited to join the Depot Sunset family and develop his knowledge of the CrossFit methodology as an athlete and then coach. In his PhD research, Nick is interested in behaviors that protect against stress – and intense exercise is absolutely the best medicine!
