In Affiliation, HD Videos

Video Article

In this video, affiliate owners in Panama show off their boxes and share how CrossFit has changed their lives and the lives of their athletes.

“I think it’s been received with hands wide open,” says Adriana Roquer, co-owner of CrossFit PTY. She says her kids program has been a big selling point because it’s the first in Panama.

While at first reluctant to begin CrossFitting herself, Roquer says she’s hooked now.

“Since my first WOD, I haven’t stopped,” she says.

Word of mouth has been the primary mode of publicity for Panama’s CrossFit boxes, and their community has grown as affiliates have branched off from their founding gyms. Many of Panama’s CrossFitters competed in the 2011 Reebok CrossFit Games Open and Latin America Regional.

“I am doing what I love here,” says CrossFit Briga’s Andres Danelutto, who competed in the regional. He admits the competition was rough for him, but he says he’s happy he competed. Danelutto finished in third place.

Roquer is also loving her life as a CrossFitter.

“I’m happy. I’m very happy where I am, and hopefully it will bring more friends in our life and my family together,” she says.
