Got your PaleoKits, fish oil and broccoli ready for another road trip? On the East Coast, 2010 Games competitors Austin Malleolo and James Hobart tour the seaboard in search of CrossFitters and their challenges.

In Episode 5 (Part 1), Hobart and Malleolo take on more challenges at CrossFit Charlotte, home of fellow 2010 Games competitor Spencer Hendel. They’re joined by A.J. Moore and Michelle Benedict of CrossFit Fort Bragg, as well as Nate Schrader, winner of the 2011 Garage Games.

In Episode 6 (Part 2), Hobart and Malleolo visit Pennsauken, N.J., home of Steve’s Club and CrossFit Tribe. After a workout, Hobart and Malleolo coach Steve’s Club athletes through some deadlifts, helping the young athletes achieve new PRs and set new goals.

In Episode 7 (Part 3), the boys visit Rob Orlando and his crew at Hybrid Athletics in Stamford, Conn. Together, they come up with a workout utilizing the strongman toys they have at their disposal, then sit down to talk about their preparation for the 2011 Reebok CrossFit Games.

Sadly, this road trip has come to an end, but the competition and challenges provided an eye-opening experience for both Hobart and Malleolo.

“I learned more than I could ever have fathomed in this seven-day period than, you know, I did in the last five months of training, and it’s just pretty cool,” Malleolo says.
