On Episode 352 of CrossFit Radio, host Justin Judkins interviewed Sandia CrossFit owner Zach Gold and CrossFit NapTown owner Peter Brasovan. This episode was webcast on Oct. 22, 2014.

4:07 Gold has been changing up his programming and using heavier loads lately, and he spoke about the positive effects it’s had. He explained why he felt the need to change things up, and he described how he’s also implemented a monthly seminar for his athletes. Like many other gym owners, Gold said he stresses proper technique at his box in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and he explained why he no longer puts the workout of the day on his website.

16:01 Life has changed dramatically for Brasovan since he found CrossFit. He started at CrossFit Chicago and met his wife there, and he now owns an affiliate. He explained how his coach became his mentor and helped him start CrossFit Naptown in Indianapolis, Indiana, and Brasovan described the culture and community at his gym. His team placed 31st at the CrossFit Games last summer, and he spoke about how he and his partner balanced getting the team ready with providing a great CrossFit experience for athletes training only for general physical preparedness.
