My Amazing 5am Crew!!

Seriously, I have the best clients in the ENTIRE world. Hands down. Left to right...Ian, Marian, Buck, Jen, Rachael, Curtis, Erron, Andrew, Leslie, Mary and Lee. I train these monsters as follows: M, W, F is Jen, Buck and Ian and 5am and Lee and Erron at 6am. In the evening its Curtis
T, Th at 5am its Marian, Rachael, Mary, and Leslie. And Andrews at 9am ..

All these athletes are mountain bike riders, 3 of them are Pro Downhill Mountain Bike riders, and some are amazingly fast runners. ALL of them push harder than is even possible at 5am in the morning. This picture was taken after a Christmas Eve smack down workout of Fight Gone Bad where they pushed eachother. Every person in this photo makes my life full. They are the reason I love what I do for a living - watching them go from falling over when squatting to deadlifting 215 pounds... and watching them win the Sea Otter Classics ... it just fills me with pride. I am blessed because they touch my life and they trust me with their fitness. Every single person here makes PR's every times they lift - the results they have gotten is just nutz. Here's to a kick ass 2009 - getting stronger, faster, leaner (if that's possible) and breaking records! Did I mention that Curtis did a 4:45 Karen? Oh yea....I train BEASTS for a living!!

So much has transpired in the past 2 weeks for me that I don't really know where to start, or if I even want to talk about it on my online diary. Hmm...I'm going to choose to protect it but I will say that my life has suddenly taken a turn and it's for the better. I go into 2009 feeling hopeful, excited, changed. I will be traveling more often, some times for CrossFit Endurance, sometimes for pleasure....both equally amazing. I hope everybody out there has taken inventory of their lives, and made a mental note of where they want to go this year and what they want to leave behind. Its no secret that 2008 held a lot of struggle and hurt for me - and I am more than glad to leave that year behind! It's going to be an amazing year ....
