Our Coaches

Daniel Luffman
Crossfit Coach/Owner

Originally from Sunset Park, Brooklyn, Dan is a New Yorker through and through and a civil servant to the end. Graciously serving our country in the Marine Corps once he finished high school, Daniel Luffman served honorably in Operation Desert Storm in the early 90’s. After several years in the Corps receiving numerous decorations, Dan grew from a Rifleman to a Sergeant when he was honorably discharged. Having served his country, Dan returned home to New York City to serve his home in the NYPD at the 70th precinct. After nine years Dan continued in his pattern of promotions and became a Detective in the 70th Precinct.

In 2006, Dan moved to Long Island. It was at this point that Dan reached one of his greatest physical challenges. After years of performing at his peak physical ability, Dan was struggling with his own physical fitness. As a result, he began training at Bellmore Kickboxing Academy. Still wanting more, Dan joined CrossFit Merrick to keep training. After two years, he was inspired and achieved his Level 1 CrossFit certification and started teaching at Merrick CrossFit. In the last four years, Dan retired from the NYPD as a 2nd Grade Detective and in April of 2012, he started helping others reach their physical peak when he opened CrossFit Lighthouse. He holds a CrossFit Level 2 along with CrossFit Endurance, CrossFit Olympic Lifting, CrossFit Kids and USAW Level1 Sports Performance Coach Certifications.

Testimonials

*When I first started Crossfit Lighthouse I was at my heaviest weight of 210lbs. I realized how unhappy I was with myself and decided to make a change. I wanted and needed a healthier lifestyle, so I contacted my best friend and now coach Amanda. She encouraged me to join Crossfit and reassured me that I would succeed. She gave me the push that I needed to take the next step. One of the hardest things for me was just showing up. However, once I was there I instantly fell in love with the coaches, DEEZ, people and the environment. From then on I have grown more confident and have lost over 70 lbs. every morning I go to Crossfit I push myself harder and joining was one the best decisions I have ever made. I have participated in races, which is something I never thought I could do. Cmc, savage race, and tough mudder are three of my proudest accomplishments. I never would of been able to achieve any of this without my "family" at Crossfit lighthouse!*
