On Episode 169 of CrossFit Radio, host Justin Judkins interviewed CrossFit success story Catherine Hart and CrossFit The Rock owners Carlo Mattia and Larry Maier. This episode was webcast live at 6 p.m. PDT on Wednesday, April 27, 2011.
3:45 Catherine Hart came on the show to talk about the way her lifestyle has changed since starting CrossFit three-and-a-half years ago. Frustrated with zero results from 45 minutes of cardio three times a week and the low-fat, whole-grain diets popular magazines advocated, she was instantly hooked when she tried CrossFit. Catherine says her entire life has transformed since starting the program, and she explained how the Zone and Paleo diets have made a huge impact on her fitness. Finally, she offered advice to others starting on the road to elite fitness.
24:10 Larry Maier and Carlo Mattia are the owners of CrossFit The Rock in Rockville Centre, N.Y. They came on the show to talk about running a successful affiliate. The pair explained how they always hire their coaches from their membership ranks, and they commented on how they’ve succeeded while sharing space with a large health club and having several other CrossFit affiliates in close proximity. Larry and Carlo also offered candid thoughts on the Reebok CrossFit Games Open, as well as suggestions on how they think it could be better in the future.
