CrossFit Bogotá owner Geoffrey Tudisco and his staff have expanded their training business to include a nutrition company and an athletic-equipment manufacturer.

In September 2008, I, a former finance guy, decided to leave the world of Wall Street behind and move from the capital of the world to the capital of Colombia to open CrossFit Bogotá. You might recall the famous “Hecho en CrossFit” photo featured on the CrossFit main site back on March 11, 2009, which instantly gained CrossFit Bogotá notoriety within the CrossFit nation. And “Hecho en CrossFit” has a whole new look—a primitive one.

Fast-forward to today. CrossFit Bogotá has become a national sensation leading a fitness revolution. Now operating under the brand name Live Primitive: CrossFit Bogotá, I and my coaches have plans underway to open three more CrossFit affiliates in Colombia in early 2011.

That is insane and totally awesome! It would be great to work as a travelling coach to gain experience while at the same time offering something back to the community you visit. Great work!

Fantastic article, completely focused on big picture movements in the crossfit community on a truly international level. That’s fitness ambassadorship and that's motivating. Not one direct or(more frequently)indirect mention of someone’s WOD time or BMI! Honestly I think you are totally right, a nutrition cafe attached to all boxes IS the future of crossfit affiliate gyms. Makes so much sense and was really fun to read about. Makes me want to move!
