David Vinup- CF Level 2 - Owner 
David was an active athlete at Lawrenceburg High School in football, basketball and track.  After graduating high school he joined the US Navy at a lean 155lbs.  Workout and fitness was a regiment in his military days, but fast forward 8 years, he was married, father of two and ballooned up to 250lbs. After 9/11, David knew he had more to give than being a regular Electronics Technician in the Navy and began training for the special forces.  Knowing the struggles to lose weight, David quickly became a fitness enthusiast and became a personal and group trainer.  Fitness took over a primary role in his life and he was accepted in 2002.  David first found CrossFit while in the Navy with the SEALS during an Iraq deployment in 2007.  It became one of the primary workout regiments for his unit.  He fell in the love with the mindset and constantly varied workouts and quickly decided to become a CF coach.  While on active duty he was a CF coach in Virginia Beach and started a military affiliate in Salerno, Afghanistan.  When David retired from the military in 2013 he moved back near his hometown and became a regular 0615 athlete at Mad City.  He became a coach at MCCF in 2016 and if he's not coaching the early classes, he will be seen working out in the early classes and on Saturday mornings.  

Amber Finnegan- CF Level 1
Amber joined Mad City CrossFit in 2012 and received her Level 1 in June 2016.  She is currently the Executive Director of Court Services for Jefferson County.  Amber loves being with her family and together they like listening to music, exercising, watching Netflix and playing with their dogs.  She enjoys being a part of the praise and worship team at her church and being outdoors walking her dogs, hiking or working in the yard.  After being an avid runner for many years, Amber was told about CrossFit and was hooked shortly after completing her foundations.  She was drawn to the ever changing workouts and the family atmosphere of the gym.  It has transformed her body and spirit into that of a strong , confident and joyful woman.  (Any maybe a little competitive).  She has seen hat same transformation in many others at the gym.  She loves seeing people progressing in their fitness levels, reaching their goals, and hitting personal records.  People outside her gym family tell her that her face lights up when she talks about CF.  It is a part of her and she couldn't imagine life without it.
