Tried Out For American Gladiator
 
1 Attachment(s)
This past weekend they held more tryouts for American Gladiator at the Gold's Gym in Venice, CA, so 3 of us from Petranek Fitness along with 3 folks from Big John McCarthy's gym headed down there to audition. It was a lot of fun and it was entertaining being at Gold's! lol!

I wrote a blog about it on my MySpace and posted lots of photos (work/family safe):

That is incredible, 30 page questionnaire! Wow, more of a dissertation than application. You guys rocked, and love that picture of Val doing pull ups while the buff girl posing while talking.

AMERICAN GLADIATOR still exists?!? WOW! That's awesome, and a CrossFitters dream come true to try-out for such a thing. Thanks for sharing Becca!

I can't believe that puppy is still around, I guess they're raising it from the dead? Man I used to watch that thing when I was a kid, I can't hardly remember what the heck it was like, except a few events.

Way to get out there Becca! Looked like a fun day.

One of our wrestlers with Pin-Up ProWrestling (wfs if you think women's pro-wrestling is wfs) did the try and got a call back. No word if she got the gig yet though...

That absolutely rocks!
I loved that show when I was a kid.
I heard they were reviving the show the other night on the radio when I was driving home.
I immediately thought that there'd be some CF'ers who would rock that show to its core - either as contestants or gladiators.

Good luck!

When you think about it American Gladiators is like Ninja Warrior except with angry bodybuilders sporting mullets and spandex trying to hurt you! :super:

Who was the guy that was an older mountain guide or something, and spanked all the young dudes. We was a CrossFit prototype

My friend got a call back for this, and now has to create a training video for the producers. This will be funny.
