CrossFit Cliffside, Spencer’s Affiliate, was established in 2018 by him and his brother, who found CrossFit following a severe hiking accident in 2009.

“Saxon and Spencer fell off a cliff in their hometown of Pittsburgh, PA, and suffered life threatening head injuries. Unable to return to the sports that they had competed in all their lives, they used CrossFit as a way to rehab both mentally and physically and resume a new and fulfilling lifestyle,” reads their Affiliate’s website.

“CrossFit Cliffside serves as homage to the accident that almost cost the brothers their lives, and began the journey through CrossFit to become the men and competitors that they are today.”
