The BOX Episode 03 – France and Germany
In France we’ll travel to the CrossFit box of Toulouse, a city located in the South West of the country. The Box has opened its doors in last January under the direction of Alberic Françon. The WOD we’ll follow there is guided by the National Coach for France, Daniel Chaffey. We’ll meet also with Yohann Gigord, a semi professional rugby player who is one of the best French CrossFitters and also a serious candidate for the French Reebok CrossFit Fitness Championships. We’ll also travel to Germany, Nuremberg in Bavaria, where a new Box has opened its doors a few weeks ago. The Box is run by the coach Drake Sladky and his colleague Justin Sprague, (both American). Drake has been involved in CrossFit for 5 years. We’ll meet with 2 CrossFit addicts: Mintra Mattison, 30, a young fitness fan and Dianne Liebenow, 66, a grandmother who practices CrossFit in order to stay healthy for her grand children.
Jamie is a professional Graphic Designer from the Preston area in the UK. He has been CrossFitting since 2010 after being hooked since his first workout. The sport has seen him travel through Europe with different athletes visiting even more boxes and meeting fascinating people from the community. I'm a self confessed adrenalin junkie who like to go high, go hard and go fast. A particular love of mine is skiing (freestyle / freeride) and if I could spend my days living in a shack on the side of a snow covered mountain I would. I am part of the team that created BOXROXmedia, so if you have any questions, ideas or feedback regarding our services, let me know!
