Sevan Mattosian caught with Coach Glassman at the CrossFit Level 1 certification seminar at CrossFit Pittsburgh on November 17, 2007.
This is Sevan’s first interview of Coach. They cover Coach’s youth in Southern California, and how his academic and athletic experiences shaped his perspective on fitness. For example, he was a competitive gymnast but didn’t have year access to a facility. The resulting time spent lifting weights and riding bikes gave him capacities his gymnast friends did not have.
They also cover why he ended up in Santa Cruz, and how he went from being a trainer to a gym owner.
