The Answer Is More Squats with Captain Danny Canlas

If you want to start your day right as a leader, start them with squats. In this episode, I interview Captain Danny Canlas of the Alaska Army National Guard. We talk about our origin story at 907 CrossFit, how serving as a fitness trainer within the military has carried over to building our confidence as leaders, how the CrossFit methodology is inherently inclusive and can build strong communities, and the appeal of fitness in strengthening both your physical and mental states. And we also put in some squats along the way.


Captain Danny Canlas currently serves in the Alaska Army National Guard as Commander, Bravo Company, 1-297th Infantry Battalion, Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska. He also served as an Affiliate Manager and Coach from 2014 to 2017 of 907 CrossFit, the official military affiliate for the Alaska Army National Guard.
