CROSSFIT OPEN WORKOUT 18.3 LIVE ANNOUNCEMENT – NEAL MADDOX

Neal Maddox is a 40 year old Crossfitter from San Jose, California. He has been living a very active life since he was 9 years old. His career was based in football, but after the chance of a professional career was lost he became a coach in a regular gym. Neal was introduced to CrossFit in 2009 and has been to the CrossFit Games almost every year since 2010, except in 2016 due to foot surgery.

From the beginning of his CrossFit career Neal has been the oldest in his division. His first time competing in the Masters division he had not yet turned 40, so he qualified for the 35-39 year old, being the oldest athlete on the field. In 2018 he will be one of the youngest males in the 40-44 year old age category.

Neal opened up his own gym in 2006, X-treme Athletics, that he later changed to CrossFit X-treme Athletics. There he trains all kinds of people as well as coaching high school football with great success.
