At age 19, he accepted a job cleaning up towels and being a water boy with the Yankees.
Dana never looked at this as beneath him. In fact, he looked at it as an opportunity to serve and add value to some of the best athletes in the world. He decided that he would add value, listen and learn.
While listening and truly living with a mentality of serving, Dana found an opportunity to add even MORE value… He started running the athletes through some core workouts.
