Finally, a good night’s rest—and a kick-ass dream for Austin Malleolo.

“I had a dream that regionals were today. And I woke up and I was like, ‘What an idiot. Why did I work out like I did the past few days? I’m compromised.’ Then I won regionals,” he recounts during breakfast. “The workouts were weird … we were shooting bow and arrows.”

Malleolo and James Hobart and Pat Sherwood continue their road trip in Colorado.

The day starts at the Fruita, Colo., home of garage CrossFitter Nate Beard. Despite his “legit” space, as Sherwood calls it, Beard also is a member of a local affiliate.

“You still need to be a part of the community,” Beard says. “You can’t replace that competitive spirit of being there and doing a WOD with a bunch of people.”

The day ends with a holiday party at Denver’s CrossFit Verve.

Part 6 brings the road trip to an end and draws reflections on CrossFit’s growth.

“The community has not changed even though it’s gotten bigger,” Hobart says. “The spirit of it has not changed.”

Malleolo agrees, calling it “unparalleled by anything.”

“I am honored to be a part of it,” he says. “It’s awesome.”

LOVE these videos, but I demand a cross country road trip to garage gyms! Show up, chat, work out, on to the next garage gym. Not everyone can be an affiliate member.

Keep 'em coming!

Love this series - keep up the good work guys. Yeah, it did seem like more of the workouts were getting cut from the last few episodes and would've like to have seen them. Food for thought in upcoming shows. Can't wait to see more!

I love these videos but I agree with the other comments...I wish you had shown more of the workouts like last year.
