Your comments about determination ring true with me. I finally found a group of people who, like me, enjoy finding their weaknesses and turning them into strengths. As a relatively new CrossFitter, there are a lot of opportunities.

What was the Japanese word that means “making improvement every day”? It sounded like ‘oruku’, but according to an online translator that means ‘stick of firewood’ or ‘death’. I think I spelled it wrong.

Thanks for your insight.

By far my favoite interview yet. His experience with learning crossfit is invaluable. It just seems that Greg A. suffered through finding his way with all of this programming and now we learn and acquire this knowldge by riding his hard work all the way. It's like Greg suffered as a test rat for all of us to benefit. That is not lost on me and I really appreciate his journey.

I am one of those who would love to see him compete at the games, but I have to repect his place in the sport. He's got nothing to prove to anybody.

Tons of respect!

Hi Greg,

What a treat to hear you on CF radio and to see you and Mallee so happy after a tough workout.

In the interview you said that you wanted to teach and be a "solid coach". You always have been that, Greg. I learned a lot in the old HQ from just watching your 100% focus during a WOD and your attention to detail and potential when training a client. Plus, I was that quiet shadow in the corner watching the steps you methodically and patiently took another police officer through in teaching him self defense and how to gain the offensive FAST!

You are our Coach's gift to CrossFit. I miss you in S.C.
