Dave Lipson: Fitness Expert, Hunky Trainer

LXTV — Channel 4’s new 5 p.m. lifestyle show — is looking for a fitness expert, to host a weekly segment.  He should be an expert trainer, a skilled communicator, an inspirational figure — and a hunk.

NBC New York’s website is pretty clear:

We searched the city for the hottest athletes and trainers we could find….We’ll introduce one “hunky” a day and you’ll get a chance to vote for your favorite in an online poll next week.

One of those “hunks” is one of our own.  Dave Lipson — Staples ’01, son of Staples choral director Alice Lipson and Temple Shalom rabbi Mark Lipson — is a top 5 finalist in the NBC search.

After graduating from the University of Rhode Island, playing professional baseball and earning the highest certification as a strength and conditioning coach, Dave founded CrossFit Exodus in Manhattan.  A broad, inclusive fitness program, CrossFit is used by police academies, special operations units and champion martial artists around the globe.  Dave has established a reputation as a CrossFit expert — and a fitness coach who connects personally and directly with every client.

Tomorrow, Dave appears live on the 5 p.m. show.  Channel 4 airs his bio, and he’ll answer questions.  Viewers vote online, from 6 p.m. September 18 through the 21st, to pick the weekly fitness host.

Here’s hoping Dave piles up a hunk of votes.

  1. Nothing wrong with being fit. I don’t know Dave, but I do recall having Dave’s mom (Mrs. Lipson to us) as a music teacher at Long Lots– a few years back. I have solid memories of her being an excellent influence on us all.

    BTW, did Dave play baseball at Staples and where did Dave play baseball after URI?

  2. Dave was part of Staples’ state championship team at Staples. After URI he played in the independent minor leagues.

  3. The Lipson’s are very nice people. I don’t know Dave, but I know the rest of the family. They are all “people oriented” and it’s no surprise that he is as well. He also looks to be in crazy good shape! Good luck Dave, you’ve got my vote!

    David is one of my 200 plus cousins and I am very proud of him. He is the first cousin to be a celebrity hunky trainer and many of us voted for one of the nicest and most talented guy around.
    We hope he wins and knows his family is behind him all the way. Way to go, Dave!
