I raided the goody box at Fuerza CrossFit in Medellin, found some interesting toys! This weighted training vest is one of them..
I’m pretty impressed by the weight vest, it definitely ups your conditioning and will also burn more fat while your training. If you’re just getting into training forget about this thing – it will just annoy you.
Fuerza is one of the best training facilities I’ve had the privilege of attending and they’re an awesome CrossFit team too (big shout out to all of you there, missing the awesomely insane training with you! See you guys soon!!
This is a special video because it has loads of different exercises from the CrossFit national open (Medellin), EXCLUSIVE interviews with some of Colombia’s Olympic Weightlifting team who will be in London this summer, interviews with some participants and of course lots of me talking about the experience while sweating and gasping for breath…

This is an account of the most intense day of training I’ve ever endured (And I only actually trained for a total of around 20 minutes over 2 CrossFit WODs – ‘Workout Of the Day’).

A massive thanks to Fuerza Crossfit in Medellin for training me for this competition and for giving me an insight into the world of CrossFit. I’m hooked! And very excited for tomorrow’s workout of ‘Angie’ which is 100 Pull-ups; 100 Push-ups; 100 Sit-ups; 100 Squats. For Time.
My take on CrossFit is that it is awesome. It is safe if you do it safely. Your coach is the one that is responsible for making sure your technique is right though at the end of the day it is your responsibility to make sure you have the right coach. Do research, ask people you know and trust to give their opinion on your coach and form. It’s important because CrossFit is intense, in fact, in my opinion any training you’re doing for fat loss or to improve your physical ability should be intense so make sure you’re doing it safely.
As far as I can see, looking good and feeling AWESOME are side effects to training CrossFit and eating Paleo. It’s just happens because you’re training so intensely and eating real food.

(I have to say, I don’t entirely agree with the part about eating cream and cheese)
I’ve been training CrossFit at Fuerza Crossfit in Medellin every day for 2 weeks now. I was sceptical at first because of the obsessive nature of the ‘sport’ (the sport of training that is) though having learned about their philosophy and actually trained CrossFit for myself now – I LOVE it!
This is a quick interview with Batu and Nega who came 2nd and 5th respectively in the Latin American CrossFit Regionals. They’re basically two of the fittest people I’ve had the privilege of meeting, and in this interview they share some of their training philosophy and eating habits.
