090112 – Monday

Just got back from an absolutely amazing CrossFit certification in San Diego this weekend. It was kind of like a who’s who of CrossFit.

Greg Amundson led the entire weekend. He’s pretty much the original face of CrossFit…but now he has a handlebar mustache so I’m not sure if that makes him the same face of CrossFit, but he couldn’t have been any more helpful than he was.

Dave Castro and Andy Stumpf were the main presenters and apparently had a plan to make sure every time they spoke it blew my mind. Josh Everett, one of my biggest CrossFit heroes was there too…they actually nicknamed King Kong- King ‘Josh Everett’ Kong, interesting fact…

And just when you thought the entire thing couldn’t get any better, Coach Mike Burgener dropped in and taught Olympic lifting. Unreal! My snatch immediately gained 20 lbs after shaking his hand.

Big thanks to all the CrossFit trainers mentioned above who were so encouraging about us starting our box and affiliate, also thanks to James Letchford of CrossFit Laguna Beach and Operation Phoenix, Rory McKernan of US CrossFit, Stephane Rochet of USD Strength & Conditioning, the 2 CrossFit trainers from Australia who were so nice but I don’t know their names because I still can’t understand a word they said, and all the other trainers who helped but I am too exhausted to name right  now!

Oh, finally, Sevan dropped by and had the first public showing of the first CrossFit movie ‘Every Second Counts’! Yes. It is THAT awesome!

What a weekend…see you all tonight at 7pm!
