Fafa is all smiles (as she should be) in this post-17.4 photo with her coach, Kirsten.

Meet Fafa – 10 HSPU and a Boatload of Fun
Written by Michele Vieux

Congratulations to Fabiola Aviles, aka Fafa, on her performance on 17.4. She’s one of the strongest ladies I know and been working super hard in the gym on attacking her “weaknesses” which really paid off during the Open’s repeat workout from last year. Up until she got off the rower in 17.4, she had never hit a handstand push-up but managed to bang out 10 over the course of this workout –

The CrossFit Open is a five-week online competition that takes place in CrossFit gyms all across the world. Every Thursday evening for five weeks, a new workout is released and we get the opportunity to watch top athletes try out the workout on a live feed. These workouts are known to be grueling, featuring movements we all know and love, and they are meant to push us past our limits. The energy that fills the room as athletes complete Open workouts each week is invigorating and inspiring.

Meet FitKid Matteo Toriello
Written by Arielle Bloom

You may have seen Matteo on a Saturday smashing out hundreds of kettlebell swings, or rowing upwards of 1,000 meters with a casual grin on his face while the rest of the class featured the “pain face”. Or maybe you’ve seen him at noon on a Wednesday knocking out burpees to a target or wall climbs and handstand holds.

Matteo is the son of Tasha Toriello, and is a member of our Fit Kids program with the Urban Discovery Academy.
