  1. the REAL Henry

    Ahh…Mr. Carroll. Thank you for taking the time to respond to my inquiry in person! I was under the impression you were off galavanting on vacation for the rest of the month. I continued to research ball-gag in cross-fit lingo but still have not found success. I have looked under the main site and understand that cross-fit delivers a fitness that is, by design, broad, general, and inclusive; and the specialty is not specializing (BRILLIANT!)

    I have gone as far as looking at the basic fundemental movements, etc., but still no ball-gagging. Is this covered in the fundementals class?

    I went on to contact your business manager Mr. Ridgewood but he is not listed as a contact under trainers. He is probably in corporate. He tends to drink a lot. While I appreciate a person’s individuality and I do not consider myself judgemental, I WILL say that even though I can barely lift a pood, I am strictly following the primal and Paleo diet philosphy. I tried the zone but stopped after everywhere I went and mentioned the zone, people were like “autozone?”. Then I spent hours trying to locate a healthfood store called autozone and was really excited when I heard a really neat radio commercial that said “get in the zone, autozone”. I was disappointed to learn it had nothing to do with the zone diet. But I digress. Mr. Ridgewood needs to stop drinking, or at least drink in moderation as per paleo guidelines.

    Needless to say, as soon as I attain my target weight, I will be participating in a fundementals class. I look forward to the infamous ball-gag, especially since I haven’t done THAT since college! LOL

    I want to be so ripped up for the summer I can hang rings from the tree in my front yard and do muscle ups so my neighbors think a ninja lives here.

    Great blog Mr. Carrol. Your members are very supportive of eachotherand I will continue to follow. Great job Jim, come to the gym Nick, and is Suz single? Toodles!
