Our ‘Los is Geneva’s gain

22 Oct

0630 stalwart and resident Texan, Carlos is leaving these shores to take up a new role in Geneva.

Carlos has been training with us since February this year, back in the days when the morning classes were not as busy as they are now. Since then, he has been an ever-present figure in the early hours; pitching up to thrash through the WODs regardless of the weather!

He has also made huge strides in his technique and capacity during this time. Earlier this summer he even got a chance to race a leg of the Tour de France!

This morning we celebrated Carlo’s time with us with a WOD featuring some of his favourite movements:


15-25-35-45-35-25-15 Kettlebell swings

8-6-4-2-4-6-8 Dumbbell thrusters

The morning crew got in to the Carlos spirit with hearty Texan shouts and yells between rounds!

Travel safe, Carlos and come back and visit when you are next in town!

  1. Hey everyone,

    It’s been a great time working out with ya’ll! I remember when it was just Steve and I at 6:30am, M/W/F. I told him I wanted to get better at snatch, and kips. And that first day we did like 200 barbell snatches. But now that’s one of my favorite lifts, and ultimately got my kips down. Then eventually I met Andrew and heard about his barefoot running endeavours, kittens, squirrles, wearing dress shoes….etc….nuff said. Just a lot of good memories. Cutting my “Fran” time down by 2 minutes, I met a ton of great people and am happy I was part of the Crossfit London Family. I’m pretty proud as well becauuse I have two workouts named after me, the one above, and another called “Carlos Wept”…..if you haven’t done that yet ask Steve about it. Well I wish everyone the best and I’ll definitely keep intouch. Take care.

    Carlos (Los)
