THE BOX EPISODE 08 – ON RAMP IN RUSSIA & SPAIN
This week, The Box will revisit Moscow. The head coach, Eugeny Bogachev will help the CrossFitters improve their technique before starting a team WOD. We will be introduced to Alexander Smirnov, a student in nuclear physics who started CrossFit 2 years ago and aims to take one of the top spots in the Reebok CrossFit Fitness Championship Russia (14 July 2012) just like Ivan Philippov, Marat Mukhametdinov or Aurora Asseserova. The Box will also head down to Madrid, to the Box Mundo CrossFit where Nacho Merino, the head coach, prepared a special session with the all the qualified athletes for the Reebok CrossFit Fitness Championship Spain (Green Canal Golf Club, Madrid, June 9, 2012). Finally there will be catch up with Jesus Alba, a fireman who works in Illescas, near Toledo, and is a favorite to win the championship in Spain.
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!
