Julian Alcaraz is one of them.
Julian has been in Haywire, Red Dawn, and the TV series Suits. Julian is an actor on the rise and an active crossfit athlete who will be representing Valley Crossfit.
Crossfit, it's a core strength and conditioning program rapidly growing around the U.S.Combining circuit training with weights and cardio, crossfit has developed into one of the most popular fitness programs in the city.
Essentially, when you show up to a crossfit gym, the workout for they day is already decided. Different workouts have girl names, like Cindy, Mary, and Fran. Crossfiters compete to get their times down on these circuits.
Crossfit really takes advantage of the basic social motivation that comes from having a bunch of people in the same room doing the same workout. Something in your head almost forces you to finish the workout and do the best you can at it.
Earlier this week, Julian invited us to come watch one of his training sessions, and he helped represent the Be.Awesome. brand.
After seeing the Crossfit gym, we've already decided we're going to go back and do some of the workouts. A crossfit gym looks like a big playground. It's lots of rowing machines, monkey bars, climbing ropes, and gymnast rings.
Julian during the competition. The event starts at 6 a.m. and is an all day event (We won't be there that early. We aren't awesome like THAT).
If you're in the area, come check it out. It'll be bad ass. Lots of absurdly in shape people, chicken, and beer.
Later in the evening, we'll be at SkyZone in Torrance, an indoor trampoline gymnasium. Jumping on gigantic trampolines? Absolutely! I'm excited. Check back in with us for details on our experience.
