Dan Paul

Boise State University (#47 – Fullback)

On the Field
In the Gym - 650 lb Deadlift

Dan Paul is a former fullback for Boise State University.  He trained with us at Competitive Edge in preparation for his NFL Pro Day Combine.

Dan had the overall best combine out of all the BSU athletes and at 262 lbs jumped an incredible 37 1/2" vertical.  Dan was also ranked in the number one and number two spot out of all the fullbacks at NFL combine that year.

Dan Pauls Numbers

Here is what Bleacher Report had to say about Dan's performance:

However, the most impressive thing Paul did was post a 37.5-inch vertical. For a guy who 6'1", 262 lbs, that is an impressive number. His bench press numbers would have been top five in the NFL combine.

Dani Schwalbe

Dani Schwalbe is what we like to refer to as a freak show!  Dani is considered by many to be pound for pound the strongest women in the world.

That is by no accident.  Dani has all the tools.  Genetics, heart and a work ethic only few can realize and extremely coachable.  Her natural athletic ability and pressing strength is why Schwalbe has become one of the top strongwomen in the sport in a rather short time.

“If you are sick of the classic big box, boring, get you by kind of atmosphere to train at, training with Matt at Competitive Edge is where you want to go.  This place is legit for anybody who wants to be the best at their chosen athletic endeavor.  There is no other place in Idaho like it.  You get a one on one system even if you train with a group.  Everything is tailored to your goals, your body, and your needs.  You will not only get what to do, but why to do it.  This way when you are traveling, go off to school, or are at a competition you are not lost and end up not competing at your best because you know why you are doing something and how attack it.

I came in to Matt’s gym as a complete newbie to the world of powerlifting and really just kind of a walking mess.  Through my time with Matt my lifting patters got much better, my health elevated, and I was able to crush some of my previous goals.  I dropped nearly 10% body fat in a year, my powerlifting lifts (squat/bench/deadlift) went from 365/285/415 to 555/395/565 and my passion for the sport elevated being in an environment that was not meant for the weak.

Matt is truly one of the best coaches that I have ever had after playing several sports in high school and after high school, Matt still ranks as one of the best.  If you want that scholarship, that opportunity to go pro, or are looking to go from making a competition a hobby to a passion, Competitive Edge is the place to go.”
