There is supposed to be an article about us in Tuesdays free Post Express. The reporter did part of the class, and spoke to a bunch of my group. As always, we really have no idea about how it will come out until it is down in print. Meanwhile, i am keeping my fingers crossed.

Wow, totally positive press. I think this is a really nice article, and goes out free all across the metro DC region. I got lucky on this one. Will post as soon as I can get it online.

I know its cynical but after I left that day I was thinking..."Hmmm I wonder how my words could be twisted around to make Crossfit DC look like it's out to hurt people?"

Good article....curious as to why I'm referenced to as Yeh, rather than Allen?

Here is the link: It's an Adobe PDF file and the article is located on page 48 (work/family safe)

That is one of the best articles I have seen. Great explanations of the principles and practices and just enough info to peak people's interest. Get ready for stardom.

Congratulations

"If you build it, he will come"!
In this case "He" being the eager people of the world looking for a great way to keep in shape.

Great article Tom.

Allen: they always reference the last name when they're talking about someone again after they've introduced their whole name.

Good article though!
