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

*I joined Crossfit Lighthouse a little over two years ago and it was one of the best healthcare decisions that I have ever made. Before Crossfit I had always belonged to a gym but the workouts had become boring and I had lost most of my motivation to workout. I found myself overweight, tired and not anywhere near as strong as I would have liked. All of that changed after several months at Crossfit. The camaraderie, competitive environment, and coaching pushes people to work harder and be stronger than they think is possible. Over the past two years I have gained a tremendous amount of strength, lost weight and significantly increased muscle mass. It is almost never easy, but it is always fun. With the constant variation it is nearly impossible to get bored! Once you start you won’t regret the decision and you will almost certainly never look at working out the same way again.*
