Dakota Cardosanto

Owner

Dakota Cardosanto is the owner of Broad Street CrossFit. He specializes in all things CrossFit and helping others be all that they can be. Coach Dakota started CrossFit in 2009 after joining the U.S. Army. He jokes that he was a seriously out of shape college grad and needed to be as fit as possible for his new active profession.

During his down time as an Army Paratrooper, he used learning about fitness and working out as an escape. About 2 years into his contract, he spoke with his grandfather about his life’s plans for when his contract was up. After that conversation, it was apparent that owning a CrossFit gym was in his cards.

“I love the energy I get from a class when you can tell the entire group has decided to put everything else going on in their life aside for one hour and just focusses on working hard and having fun. It’s amazing seeing people getting an escape from normal life and a chance to let loose while doing something positive even if it’s just for a little bit."

Jean Rushton

Manager

“I’m passionate about bringing each athlete to their highest potential in health and fitness by challenging them to go beyond their comfort zone. I really love creating both a professional and personal bond that will assist the athletes in achieving their goals and in return being a part of their success.”

Coach Jean is not only a great lifter, she’s also a competitive middle distance runner, a Penn Relays champ and holds the state record for Distance Medley Relay.

“The desire to participate in a challenging yet supportive fitness regimen brought me to CrossFit. Once I experienced all the benefits of the sport and its amazing community, I felt there was no better way to share my passion than becoming a coach. I wanted to spread my love for CrossFit and there’s nothing I enjoy doing more! Except for maybe eating buffalo wings.”

Todd Gorsop

Coach

Todd Gorsop is our senior coach here at Broad Street CrossFit. He specializes in strength & conditioning and nutrition.

“I’ve been lifting weights since I was 5 years old so I’ve tried just about every way to get stronger and have a great understanding of where people are in their fitness journey. I really enjoy going deeper down the rabbit hold of potential. Constantly learning and pursuing a better understanding of myself and the world around me.”

Coach Todd’s start in the athletic world came by way of baseball, basketball and football all the way through high school. Later, he played football for Millersville. Soon thereafter, he discovered a hiddent talent for moving some seriously heavy weight. He placed 2nd and 3rd in a few Strongman competitions in 2001 and 2002.

“I got into CrossFit Football to support my role as a strength and conditioning coach for a highschool football team and really enjoyed the coommunity of CrossFitters. There is nothing more rewarding then knowing I may have made an athlete’s day better, or helped them gain confidence by learning a new skill or encouraging them to push through their doubts. The first pull up, the body composition change, the housewife deadlifting over 200lbs . . . I love it all.”
