This past weekend, your coach Armen participated in the OC Throwdown. He qualified for the advanced division based on a series of self-reported workouts and was invited to compete in six workouts over the past two day. Armen went on to dominate the competition and finish in 1st place! His performances were so impressive that he would have beat a majority of the elite division, as well.
As his older brother and coach, I want to thank you all for the outpouring of love and support this weekend. A special shout out to all of you who made the 90 minute trek to the OC to cheer Armen on in person. I hope that all of you realize how lucky we are to have an athlete and coach of Armen's caliber representing our community. His success reflects positively on us all and he continues to stand as a role model of elite fitness. Special thanks to Coach Johnny of CrossFit Pasadena who helped coach Armen to victory this past weekend.
I remember Armen's first CrossFit 'workout' in a park out on the west side several years ago. He was unable to complete the warm-up and unceremoniously threw up in a trash can. He's come a tremendous way since that point and I can truly say that Armen has unlimited potential as a CrossFitter. I look forward to his continued development as an athlete!
If you see him around the gym this week, give him a big high five! He's earned it!
