Sam Dancer is someone who has had quite a personal and athletic journey. A legally blind former ceramics artist, former D1 running back, and former bodybuilder who has since found his calling in CrossFit.
After his career in collegiate football, Sam knew he needed some sort of athletic outlet, and that's where CrossFit came in. He's been involved in both team and individual CrossFit competitions since 2012. But he really ensured his spot on the competition's map in 2014 at the Reebok CrossFit Games when he finished second after deadlifting 655 lb.
Jennifer Dancer or Jenn, as she's better well known, got her athletic start early on - not doing CrossFit or weight lifting as you might expect, but playing soccer. Jenn played soccer all through high school and continued to the University of Missouri where she still holds the record as their second all-time ranking in goals scored.
Jenn's soccer career didn't stop there, she moved to Europe in 2006 after college to take her career pro. During her time there she played professional soccer for 7 years with the Boston Breakers and Pitea IF.
Sam and Jenn met in 2011, and they soon realized they could be even stronger than they were on their own. And in 2012 Jenn came back to the states from Sweden to be with Sam. They wanted to spread as much love and positivity as possible while learning more about themselves and each other along the way. Which is why they hold stances against things like bullying and have their Dancer Love Foundation that works with Special Olympic athletes.
They even own a gym, QTown Crossfit, which is located in Quincy, IL. They run their gym, coach, train, and compete side by side - that's what you call a real power couple. While their gym stays in one spot, this couple does not. They put down the norm in 2019 and hit the open road. Now they travel the country in their house van teaching people workouts and the value of fitness along the way.
There is no doubt that the Coronavirus pandemic has had an impact on almost
every person. Here at JUNK we jumped into action by producing masks for our
healthcare professionals and starting a fundraiser to benefit Feeding America.
We also implemented strong protocols to protect our staff, long before it was
required by authorities.
Due to these efforts and very high demand we are currently experiencing much
longer processing and shipping times than we are accustomed to. We are open,
working hard, and going to get every order out as fast as we can.
CURRENT PRODUCTION AND SHIPPING TIME ON NEW ORDERS IS 2-3 WEEKS.
We appreciate everyone, especially those on the front lines, fighting so we
can return to better days.
