Slide 9 of 11

David Myers

Chef-owner, Comme Ça, Los Angeles and Pizzeria Ortica, Orange County, CA

Determined that working in the restaurant industry shouldn't require sacrificing fitness, F&W Best New Chef 2003 David Myers built a gym and hired a trainer to lead CrossFit sessions, an intense aerobic, strength and conditioning program, exclusively for his employees—for free. Myers's own workouts consist of CrossFit sessions six days a week and surfing "whenever the waves are good."
