The Primal Athlete!

Sorry I’m behind, life goes by fast and I was……well you’ll see.  I’ll be catching up most of this week. Enjoy!

            (6/8) I took a random off day and headed to visit a new area box. CrossFit - The Primal Athlete (TPA) (263) in Zelienople, PA. Here I met two wonderful woman and owner/coaches in Tammy Friedt and Julie Wakefield. These two ladies were super nice and wonderful to talk to before and after the WOD. There were only two of in class but we made the most of the HERO in front of us. “Daniel” consists of 50 Pull-ups, 400 meter run, 21 Thrusters @ 95#, 800 meter run, 21 Thrusters @ 95#, 400 meter run, & 50 Pull-ups. No small task! We pumped thru it in 21:10 Rx and 26:30 scaled.

TPA has a very diverse group, consisting of all ages from what I saw in the previous class. The trainers are super motivated and are genuinely excited about what they do. If you have the time and you’re in the ‘burgh, head north up 79 and you will not be disappointed. Thanks for having me ladies, it was worth the trip. If you ever need me to come up and “work” with that “special case”, I’ll be glad to come up. Just save me the sparkly coach shirt.
