This past weekend our own Chris "Sweaty" Johnson, competed in the Wrightsville Beach Biathalon. This race consisted of a 4 mile paddle board and a 4 mile run. Chris secured first place with a blazing time of 1:16:24. He is a great example of what CrossFit, with the proper endurance supplementation, can help you achieve. Congrats Sweaty!

    Thank you everyone for all the kind words and support. And for all recent members who I have not had the pleasure of meeting, I did not start CFW as an endurance athlete. I was never really a phenomenal athlete to begin with. In high school athletics I was above average and throughout college I was a decent rugby player. For those who haven’t seen the “old me” pics, I was at one point 360 lbs. I began at CFW weighing in at 280, but thanks to the very knowledgable trainers, combined with Tony’s nutrition and technique work, and the encouragement and positive attitude from everyone here at our box, I have transformed myself. I did not even realize an endurance athlete was in me. So take it from me, listen to what it is your instructors tell you, take the nutrition classes if you can, branch out and explore the different facets of fitness that are offered here and you may surprise the hell out of yourself. If you tell yourself you can, then you most definitely will.

    I think these are huge accomplishments, Sweaty and Scott. Congratulations! I love it that I go to the same gym as you guys. There’s been some talk on these boards about people gilding the lily but right now I think it’s entirely appropriate to declare the two of you ‘amazing’.
