Clark Webb – Clark graduated from Depauw University in 2002 with a Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance (Opera).  He is first and foremost an entertainer.  His classes are 75% CrossFit and 50% Comedy.  Clark is not very good at math.  Clark boasts no amazing college athletic achievements.  He’s always been competitive, but focused more on having fun than taking it all too seriously.  Except of course for  the nine years of his life, from 8 to 17, where he dedicated his life to the game of golf….and we mean practicing his short game in thirty degree weather kind of dedication.

Clark found CrossFit Full Potential in October 2011.  Since then, he does his best to live and represent the CrossFit methodology, and believes that “core to extremity” can apply to more than just the work done inside the gym.  He truly believes that if a person changes what is inside, physically or mentally, it will affect every other aspect of that person’s life.
