CrossFit Lakewood owner Orion Tulchin is another Globo Gym refugee who at one point worked his way up to area fitness manager of a big-box chain. That path hit a dead end when he took a Level 1 Cert in January 2009, and now he’s running a brand new box in Denver, Colo.
In this profile courtesy of Paula and Jordan Gravatt, Tulchin explains how he got hooked on CrossFit, how he’s increasing his membership at his fledgling affiliate and what he would have done differently. Joking, Tulchin says he might have stolen more clients from Globo Gym, but given his passion for training, they’ll find their way to CrossFit Lakewood soon enough.
