Pictures of Secret Training Camp:

Tyler has a competitive high school football background. He was tentative to jump into CrossFit full force while still playing ball in fear that it would take away time on the field. He did a few WODs here and there, mainly to shut his brother up, but never followed the programming consistently. After graduating high school, Tyler decided to see what a month of CF training would do for him. That month hooked him and a desire to train for the 2009 CF Games was born.

Most 18 year old young adults are sleeping in and partying late. Not Tyler! He works as a bagger at a local grocery store, goes to school full time, plays the guitar, never misses a workout, and has an all around great attitude in "The Cell" and in life.

His hopes are to qualify for the games this year, but if not he will be excited to compete on our affiliate team and shoot for it again next year.
