Yeah, I wrote that. Despite taking almost two years off from an official gym, within minutes of (grudgingly!) re-joining the sport, Aspen CrossFit quickly and seamlessly became my home and the people my family. Moving to Newport Beach, one of the first items on my agenda was to find the right box to call home [...]
It’s beginning to look a lot like CrossFit … I’ve been out of a regular CrossFit “box” for quite some time, doing outdoor, .com, Football, and Outlaw WODs. I have the motivation and determination that allows me to train by myself, and I like it. But I also miss the community, the competition, and the [...]

I talked about how excited I was when the Aspen Club got bumper plates. Each plate is a different color for its weight, and I love them. Yesterday, I got a chance to love them for a different reason: humor! A man who was previously using the leg press came up to me as I [...]
