the heart of v23


Beau Dorning

Founder & Head Coach

Beau is an Air Force veteran and multi-discipline athlete from San Diego, CA. His interest in both athletics and human health and performance eventually led him to pursue strength and conditioning in 2009. He co-founded V23 to help those from diverse backgrounds (from NFL, D1 athletics, to Pro Strongman) and experience levels develop a love with their training.


Throughout his career, Beau has been fortunate to have been mentored by renowned strength and conditioning coaches, movement experts, and seasoned veterans of the game. It was through their expertise, literature, and countless trips back to the drawing board that helped build the philosophy and belief system that guides his coaching today.


Forever a student of his craft, Beau is always looking to strengthen and question his understanding of human movement and physical health to help others "live a larger life".
