The 16th episode of CrossFit Radio Weekend aired live at 6:00 p.m. PDT on Saturday, June 6th, 2009.
This special edition of the program featured a look at CrossFit around the world, as seen through the eyes of CrossFit trainers and affiliate owners in Denmark, Australia and Northern Ireland. Dave discovered the CrossFit story is much the same everywhere: explosive growth fueled by passionate people who have drunk the koolaid. No matter what the language, burpies still suck. And nowhere do landlords understand why CrossFit workouts are so noisy.
00:00 - 17:34 A trainer with the very Danish name of Thor Larsen talked about how CrossFit Copenhagen has grown to 550 members. The affiliate operates out of a small space in a former church. It is trying to raise funds to send eight athletes to the CrossFit Games next month.
17:34 - 36:12 Matt Swift, owner of CrossFit Brisbane told the story of CrossFit in Australia. Matt’s website boasts: “We have chalk, we make noise, we know everyone by name, we sweat, we swear, we laugh and we train hard. It is a great place to be a part of.”
36:12 - 52:33 Jonny Smyth of Northern Ireland CrossFit outside Belfast talked about the birth and growth of his affiliate.
