070321 Wednesday “300”

Some of you might have heard of a little movie called “300”. Well one of our favorite** sites Gym Jones was responsible for a lot of the training of the actors. Mark Twight the owner of Gym Jones is CrossFit trained and certified. Although he now walks a slightly different path, his methods and ‘program’ are definitely legit compared to 99.9% of what is out there.

**EDIT** Apparently there is more to the story about Mr. Twight and the revolution known as CrossFit. You can find out more by clicking “Continue reading below”.

Below is a video journal of the actors in training.
