Dayton Smith


I’m a movement and health enthusiast that enjoys helping others through cultivating relationships. I’ve been an athlete my whole life and have been working in the fitness industry since I was 16. My number one interest is empowering people to become mentally and physically healthier.  After competing in Crossfit at a high level I sustained a serious back injury, to which my doctor advised that I shouldn’t ever lift weights again. This injury forced me to take a more holistic approach to my training. Integrating positional work, respiration exercises, stress management, and other healthy lifestyle habits has allowed me to continue to do what I love, pain free. I believe what I have learned can help anyone that has been sidelined by injury or chronic pain to still train and stay fit. Outside of the I enjoy seeing live music, spending time outdoors, and studying philosophy and theology.

Real People. Real Results

Xcel fitness is honestly the best gym I have ever been to. I have tried other gyms in the past but I always came back to Xcel! The trainers and coaches always push me hard and are concerned about my growth and progress. All of the classes are great and every class I’ve been to has been amazing! I really recommend becoming a member here!”


The gym is always very clean and well maintained. They have also implemented great cleaning tools and tactics with COVID, ensuring that all of the equipment gets wiped down before and after each use. It has all of the equipment that you’d ever need. By far the best gym in Utah!”
