A HUGE thanks to CrossFit Boston for showing me how they do it on the East Coast. Neal T. (on the left) is a great trainer and their ‘box’ is full of great tools and toys. I knew it was a good location when I saw that next door to his facility was “Diablo Glass Works”, and the fact that they use a “Dirt Devil” vacuum. I felt right at home.

I remember when traveling meant I had to resolve to bodyweight exercises at the hotel. Now, by checking the CrossFit Affiliates Page, you can find a place to get your licks in, and meet some really cool people.

The CrossFit community never ceases to amaze me.

    How many minutes did it take to do this?

    I want to try this with my crew but might modify for as many rounds as you can in X minutes.

    You are welcome to come back anytime and I will be sure to give you a taste of the devil’s horns for the altered pic!

    Time elapsed: 8:00 mins.

    20 x would probably take 18 -20 mins.

    Very fun.
