My old instructor- Amir Khillah, from the Hughes Intensive Training team. All of his workouts and warmups were influenced by CF. The other instructors at the gym were the ones who referred me here for more workout ideas outside of training.

http://www.strengthliberationacademy.com/archives.html (WFS) Rich Clementi trained at CrossFit SLA which is now Strength Liberation Academy. I am not sure if they are still open.

It's relatively safe to assume that if BJ is training Crossfit, Joe Lauzon is as well by extension.

BJ doesn't do straight crossfit anymore. I don't even know if he does crossfit anymore. Fight gone bad is in his book. If you go to bjpenn.com you can see his conditioning sessions.

Re: Pro Fighters doing CrossFit?

Jason McDonald is the king ... I'm hoping to land a position out west on my next co-op work term, it'd be nuts to have the opportunity to train at his gym.

Re: Pro Fighters doing CrossFit?

From the video below, I doubt BJ Penn does CrossFit anymore:

In fact, it looks like a traditional bodybuilding routine. I cringed when his coach was saying "it's all you" and he "spotted" him on his bench press.

The guys that train at Throwdown's training center have a pretty nice Crossfit gym set up there.

You can't deny that he's not kicking butt though. Crossfit might have burned him out or something.
