Bryan envisioned a “Box” the moment he was first dosed with a CrossFit WOD. The appeal of hard work in a short amount time that directly impacted his fitness was exactly what he had been searching for. Mountain Biking, CycloCross, Rock Climbing, Trail Running and Backcountry enthusiasm required programming that most fitness programs couldn’t deliver. Training to run distance in altitude or ride a bike offered the Long Slow Distance domain, but left him vulnerable to strength domains. Carrying large loads for distance quickly became a “Chink” in his armor. That was until CrossFit. The love of Mountain Triathlons required hours and hours of riding and running, the method was scrapped and quickly turned to training the “Benchmark Girls” and Clean’s. CrossFit is hard work it takes you past that comfort level that most of the American public has been grown accustom to. CrossFit forges those you are willing enough to make the decision that they will no longer take the easy road.
