The Future for CrossFit



In the past months my life has changed dramatically. I have moved to the east coast and left my life in California for a new job here in Boston. I feel like the job is more than just a job. As many of you may know Reebok, the aerobic/pump shoe and clothing company is doing a huge deal with CrossFit. This is a great partnership for the two companies and it will elevate crossfit to a new level around the world as well as pump it into the limelight, and hopefully revamp reebok's image from flashdance back to a serious fitness brand. With all this potential for growth and expansion, really explosion, Reebok needed someone from within Crossfit to run their own box at Reebok HQ. As well as ingrain Crossfit into the lives and hearts of their employees. I feel honored to get the opportunity but with this job I feel a big weight on my shoulders. Its is so important that the people who will lead our community into the future really understand what our culture is about. They need to live and breath Crossfit to understand the special aspects that make the community so unique and special, an attitude and standard that needs to be held.

  4. Congrats and good luck Dave! I for one am glad that someone like you is involved in some way with infusing the Reebok HQ staff with a real dose of everything that CrossFit is about. I am sure you will do a great job.

    If they move towards manufacturing some CrossFit friendly low profile shoes try to get them to go up to a size 15 for me will ya? Trying to find a decently WOD friendly size 15 shoe without a thick, smooshy sole is tough! Help a brother out!

  6. You're an awesome athlete! I think you're a perfect fit for leading Reebok's transition into the CrossFit culture and ensuring it maintains the roots of the community we've built and love. I hope your training continues to go well, I can't wait to watch you take the top finish at the 2011 games!
