Favorite WOD: Karen
Favorite Lift: Push Press


Scott began CrossFit in 2012 with Shogun CrossFit and immediately knew he was in it for the long haul.  Scott is a 4th degree black belt in karate and had been practicing and teaching for many years.  However, Scott felt like he was missing something since he was not building muscle or endurance.  Karate training is basically repetition, doing the same thing over and over week in and week out.  With CrossFit, there is so much variance in the training and no two weeks are ever the same. Scott fell in love with the practicality of the exercises and how they improved every aspect of his life. He became a trainer in April of 2015 with the purpose of wanting to give back to the box and fellow athletes.  Scott’s favorite part of CrossFit is that he is continually learning a new skill and improving the techniques already learned.

After working out for years and not seeing the result she was looking to achieve, Penny was just about to hire a personal trainer when a good friend encourage her to give CrossFit a go.  Penny was hook after the first session.  She couldn’t believe the amount of sweat and tears could go into such a short workout.  For months on end, not missing a single workout, she push herself and achieve the one goal that no other type of training ever could, the “strict pull-up.”  With the passion for staying healthy, fit, and strong Penny is now sharing her passion for CrossFit with all athletes at Shogun CrossFit.

Denny_editedDenny Cooke Trainer Pic.jpg

Name a sport and Dennis has played it. Dennis grew up in PA and played competitive golf at Haverford High School and Delaware County Community College; where he allegedly carded a 3rd place finish in the PCAA State Championship (the internet doesn’t go back that far J). Dennis credits his appreciation for proper mechanics to his history with golf. Dennis’ other physical accomplishments include a yellow belt (one above white) in Northern Praying Mantis Kung Fu, a 2-week stint as an amateur parkourist, and 8 months as Jimmy John’s fastest known bicycle delivery boy (again, pre-internet proof). Dennis enlisted in the Air Force in 2009 and took up a passion for endurance training as means to stay fit-to-fight. In 4 years’ time Dennis completed 5 marathons and 3 Half-Ironmans (feel free to google that claim). In pursuit of the perfect endurance training program, Dennis found that high-intensity, CrossFit workouts were much more efficient, well-rounded, and fun than the typical long-slow-distance volume training familiar to most endurance programs. Upon arrival to Kadena in October 2015, Dennis committed himself to full-time CrossFit training and is hitting PRs almost daily; to include losing 30 pounds! Dennis received his L1 Trainer cert in 2015, as he simply cannot help being that guy who gives unsolicited advice (“the L1 gives me street cred”). Truthfully, Dennis loves all sport and human movement and takes joy in sharing that passion with anyone and everyone.

KINSENTE “Fungsanity” FUNG
Crossfit Level 1 Trainer
Favorite WOD: Any bodyweight WOD
Favorite Lift: Snatch


Kisente began CrossFit in 2011 while stationed at Kunsan AB, South Korea. He heard many rumors about the program, and was hesitant to try. He gave CrossFit a shot after witnessing an athlete execute a muscle-up beautifully. His entire intention was to learn as quickly as possible, however, reality hit when he realized how difficult it was to execute the movement. Ever since that day he worked on that particular movement, as well as others, until he was able to accomplish it. It took him about a year to finally do one muscle up. During his experiences, the CrossFit community motivated him to keep coming back, sharing pain through workouts made it easier to grind, and truly become stronger. Now he has over 6 years of knowledge and has been enthusiastic in sharing what he has learned by coaching others.

ALLEEM “the Viking” HUMBLER Jr.

Crossfit Level 1 Trainer
Crossfit Olympic Weight Lifting Trainer

Favorite WOD: Isabel and Annie
Favorite Lift: Deadlift

Alleem started CrossFit late 2006 at CrossFit Dover close to his base of 11 years.  A fierce competitor since a young age, Alleem was into many disciplines of martial arts.  Between Boxing, Taekwando, Haidong Gumdo and Jiu Jitsu, Alleem was able to keep his mind focused after joining the Air Force with the constant flying missions into the desert.  Entering every kind of “stand up fighting” tournament was his passion, till a knee injury took him out of the ring in Fall of 2006. Searching for something to fill his competitive nature, Alleem’s long time friend, George Dobbins introduced him to CrossFit.  George said, “Bro, every day is a fight here, and then the next day it gets fiercer!”.  Even after Alleem’s surgery in 2007, the functional movement and ability to scale WoDs brought Alleem back from his injury so fast his surgeon was even amazed!  Now joined with Shogun CrossFit, Alleem has found his new passion, training others in whatever goals they may have or want to achieve.
