Dr. David Lindenberg, MD
Fuzion Athletics Pole Vault Coach
David grew up in Stockton, CA and attended UC Davis--a college with a competitive pole vault program. He tried out as a “walk on,” and although it took him three years to make the team, his persistence and passion for the sport earned him a spot on the roster his senior year. With eligibility remaining he competed for San Francisco State University during graduate school and became a DII Academic All-American, with a collegiate best of 15’9. At age 28, David improved his PR to 16’4, as a member of the Drake Pole Dogs vault club, while he was an osteopathic medical student in Des Moines, IA. He has coached all levels of vaulters from high school beginners to collegiate athletes. David is the five-time USATF Masters National Champion (age 30-34). He moved to Minneapolis with his fiancé, Evie, in 2011 for medical residency in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. At Fuzion, David continues to vault and he enjoys assisting Coach Steffen in helping motivated athletes reach new heights.
