On Episode 164 of CrossFit Radio, host Justin Judkins interviewed Keetron Breece, owner of CrossFit Fairfield County, and Reebok CrossFit Open competitor Annie Fowler. This episode was webcast live at 6 p.m. PDT on Wednesday, March 23, 2011.
3:40 Keetron Breece has been an affiliate owner for the past four years. He shared his story about turning his life around and explained how CrossFit played a significant role in that U-turn. Reflecting, he talked about the early days of CrossFit and attending seminars with Coach Glassman and Greg Amundson. Keetron explained how he markets his affiliate now and what he’s doing to bring new athletes along in their pursuit of elite fitness. He talked about how his on-ramp program evolved, and how he has created a great community in his box. Finally, he shared his results from workout 11.1 in the Open.
32:50 Justin played a documentary in which Emily Beers surveyed CrossFit women about the peaks and valleys of dating as a single CrossFitter.
39:45 Annie Fowler completed the first WOD of the Open Competition by nailing 223 reps of double-unders and snatches—while in her third trimester of pregnancy. She spoke about CrossFitting during pregnancy and how she has hit several PRs in the last eight months. She explained why she decided not to let her pregnancy slow her down and described how she has had to taper some movements and weights with advice from her doctor. Annie also talked about her diet and how it has changed now that she’s eating for two.
