Hey JJ,

Thank you so much for your dedication to the show. I'm 37, live in Sacramento, and I do Crossfit off main site at home in my garage. I would love to join one of my local boxes but when your supporting a family of five on one income, that's hard to fit into the budget. I'm telling you this because I really appreciate you keeping me informed about the world of Crossfit. I do appreciate main site and the journal but your show adds a whole other dimension. I like the fact that you often ask your guests to share some of there tips, techniques and experiences. I also really like the product reviews.

I do however have one complaint; When I listen to your show, I'm constantly adjusting the volume because I have to turn it up pretty loud in order to hear the guest. I then have to turn it down when you talk again to keep it from being uncomfortably loud. I just wanted you to have this feedback.

Thanks again for doing the show. Keep up the good work.

Aaron, Thanks for listening to the show. I love the guys hitting it hard in garage gyms and I am glad that I can contribute in some small way to feeling part of the community. I have been using a program called Levelator in order to even out some of the volume issues. Sorry for the inconvenience but I am working on it. Keep hitting it hard.

JJ I agree with Aaron getting the volume issues sorted would be a BIG help in making listening to your awesome podcast easier.
