We all have our “How we heard about CF story”. The family, friend, co-worker, neighbor, acquaintance that introduced us to this crazy program called CrossFit.
It was July of 2007. My brother comes to me one day and said, “Hey brother, check out this website a lot of my firefighter buddies are doing. It’s called crossfit.com. I think you will like it.”
So I sat down and keyed in crossfit.com. My initial reaction was that it looked interesting. So I proceeded to watch the video’s and read the articles and found myself continuing to watch MORE of the video’s and read MORE articles.
The next thing I know, I’m hauling my brother to the nearest globo gym and we are trying some ridiculous AMRAP.
Then I found myself at CrossFit LA a month later.
Next thing I know, I am a CFLA member.
Six months later I am CrossFit certified.
Jan 09: I opened a box, CrossFit Sioux Falls, in South Dakota…WHAT?! A Cali boy living in South Dakota???
Dec 10: Grew the box for 0 to a near 200 members and sold it to one of our members and came all the way back to Cali.
Feb 11: Moved back to So Cal with no job, no plan. A couple of weeks after I came back and met Z through a friend and he was just about to open CF 818. We hit it off and the rest is history.
