Pride RX x Crossfit Wynwood

Amores y amigos, 

If you haven't already heard, the Pride RX workout events have returned to South Florida.  I am kicking off the comeback with Crossfit Wynwood.  I was approached by coach and friend, David Crespo, who had expressed an interest in hosting a event after he heard me on the Team Soul Podcast back in June.  It's been a long time since the Pride RX WOD Social and admittedly I wasn't sure if we'd ever do another again.  However, after the ignorant remarks made by a high ranking former Crossfit employee in response to an LGBTQ Pride WOD event this past June, a little spark was reignited.  

I've been attending and supporting community workouts hosted by OUTWOD here in Miami for a while now and am so pleased to be able to once again partner with local boxes who understand, support and promote the inclusion of the LGBTQ+ communit with in their spaces trhough Pride RX.  

Saturday, August 25, 2018, 10:00 a.m. Crossfit Wynwood will be opening it's doors to Pride RX and our community for a fitness event.  If you've ever been to one of our events in the past you know how much fun the energy is, and what a great workout we get.  This promises to be no different.  Pride RX is also taking the opportunity to use these events as platform to raise money and awareness for The OUT Foundation- who's mission it is to provide, support, and ensure LGBTQ+ access to health and wellness through fitness.  

We're asking everyone register in advance at .  Once there you're able to RSVP and make a donation to support the The OUT Foundation, or simply register for the event.  I am personally asking everyone who wants to attend to please register in advance.  This will help us program an awesome workout for everyone, regardless of skill level.  

I can't wait to see my old friends and make new ones.




Hi All...

This is not a recap/rehashing of all the CF Infiltrate, Russel Berger, Crossfit, MESSY DRAMA that unraveled today.  This Buzzfeed article does a great job of that.  If you don't know what's up I STRONGLY encourage you read it first.

What I will say is how grateful I am for my experience as a gay crossfitter and all the boxes that opened their doors to me, Pride RX, and all the LGBTQIA crossfitters out there who wanted to come together and work out.  

I started Pride RX because of ignorant comments made by the owner of the affiliate that I was member of back then.  I thought to myself "I wonder if he knows how many of his members are part of the LGBTQIA community?"  How could he know?  It's not like he was on the floor during every class.  So I started Pride RX as a blog and printed a T-shirt.  I asked my friends if they would want one and the next thing I know I'm running around with a bunch of black v-necks with giant pink PRIDE RX logo on the front and people asking me "hey I want one!" "what's that?" "oh cool!"  

You see, visibility matters.

That's why it was so important to me to find other LGBTQIA crossfitters and her tell their stories, or have their home boxes invite us in for a Pride RX social.  Between 2013 and 2014 we had a bunch of events in and around South Florida.  If you went to one you know how much fun we had.

Since that time, other groups have picked up on that same mentality and taken it to heights I could have never imagined.  

If you haven't heard of OUTWOD by now then please click on the hyperlink and check them out.  They're FUCKING AMAZING and I support everything they do 100%.

I also want to say thank you to all the affiliates who opened their doors to Pride RX and the community with love and respect (and some hard af workouts).  Some names you'll know right away, some have changed names, others have closed- regardless you each shared your spirit of inclusivity, love and acceptance- and for that I will never forget you.

Hi everyone!

I hope you are all doing well.  Just wanted to come on and post a couple thoughts I've had.  It's been some time and there's been some remodeling of Pride RX since the launch a couple years back.  Its seems like a far different time, full of hope & possibility.  The beauty of any journey is that there are so many opportunities to learn valuable information and apply that towards making things better.  This is applicable in your personal relationships, in career decisions, and fitness goals.  I believe this to be true, by enlarge from my own experience.  I am optimistic of the path ahead and look forward to share these stories with you.
