CFA is the BEST! My one regret is that I didn't start sooner. Cody and the other coaches keep it fresh and fun every day. CFA itself is an "Awesomeness Multiplier"!

Awesome interview! I've been to many other CrossFit gyms, though they're all great, CFA is still by far the best gym I've been to. Cody really knows how to make every class enjoyable which is exactly what some of us need after a long day of work.

It sure would be nice if the sound quality could get fixed. In order to hear Jon Gilson (a great interview, BTW) I had to crank up the sound so much that Justin's voice made my ears ring. I already have enough problems hearing people, what with the barbells dropping and the loud music and all. Don't make me completely deaf, please! It's _often_ hard to hear the interviewees. You do such a great job getting interesting people on the show, I'd like to hear them.
