In this video shot in August, Juan Carlos Lourido and Dr. Oscar Reyes reflect on the history of their community at CrossFit Reebok Iron Heart in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Reyes discovered CrossFit online in 2007 and completed the Level 1 Certificate Course in 2009. He recalls the early days, when he began training at his home. Eventually, “I had 15 to 20 people at my house,” Reyes says. He knew then that it was time to look for a bigger space.

In December 2010, CrossFit Reebok Iron Heart opened its doors for the first time. Reyes describes how the community grew after the 2011 Reebok CrossFit Games aired in Puerto Rico. The strength of the community, he suggests, comes from the positive effect CrossFit has on the lives of its members.

“It becomes contagious,” Reyes says. “It creates an active community. A community that is full of positive sharing.”
