Meet Maggie Dabe

By Maggie Dabe

Video Article

Originally from Ecuador, Maggie Dabe came to the U.S. to go to school and learn English. She did both and then became a U.S. citizen.

But despite her associate’s degree in international business, Dabe wanted to do more “just to make me feel like I was doing something, (like) I was making a difference and helping other people.”

So she became a firefighter. At her firehouse, she met her future business partner and fiancé, Jeff Tincher. The two opened CrossFit Fairfax and later CrossFit Reston, and they were recently married.

Today, Dabe is also a member of CrossFit’s Level 1 Seminar Staff.

“CrossFit and the community have made me a better person. I have grown a lot. The community here—being with my clients and helping them achieve their goal—they have given me this satisfaction,” she says. “It can’t compare to anything else that I have done.”

Maggie is a GREAT coach and leads a terrific team of coaches at CF Reston. In my observation, one of the big reasons that Maggie is so successful is her passion for and her involvement in the CF Reston Community. She is a true leader and would be successful in any venture she wanted.

I finally got my Lvl 1 in Jan, and Maggie was one of the instructors.

She was awesome: super approachable, knowledgeable, and passionate. Perfect embodiment of what CF is.
