Inspired by The Modern Gypsies
Hey GWOD! This week we have a very special feature for you - you may know them from doing WODs at CrossFit Invictus, or you may know them as the winners of the adventure reality show Expedition Impossible, but I got to know these guys when they hung out for a while at San Francisco CrossFit before their next big adventure - they are The Modern Gypsies! I was fortunate enough to work with these mustachios to help them prepare for their first Compassionate Adventure in Ecuador, where they will paddle rapids and summit peaks to reach a small community in the Andes mountains, and THEN help lay 2km of pipe to bring water to the village. AMAZING. You can learn more about these heros on their website, and follow their progress through updates their Facebook page. They're already on their way, currently at elevation 9000ft at Quinto!
Here's the debut of our new Freestyle feature series, to give you a behind the scenes look at their training:
This week's progression is more fun times on the rings - the Backward Roll:
