Happy Birthday, David!

Happy Birthday, David!


Today is David Halperin’s 83rd Birthday!  Some of you may not know David (he is the seated gentleman in the middle bottom of this picture).  He has been a member of CFO for the last 3.5 years and attends our Elements class.  I have seen David deadlift over 100 pounds, bench press 70 pounds, and shoulder press 50 pounds.  He tries every exercise, even if I tell him not to, and never complains about a workout.  He has been sick for the last two months, but we are hoping to see him back at the gym soon.  Happy Birthday, David!

Please post birthday wishes to comments.

    Isn’t Crossfit the most amazing place…here we are all these people over 50/60/70/80, having this most incredible physical experience and being totally accepted and supported.

    HQ posted a link to this Fast Company article. About 2/3 of the way down, there’s a video on the CrossFit Games History (Reebok commercial). It was part of a longer video Reebok put together that they showed at the reception the Wed night before the games.

    I think Connor is in the Reebok commercial twice from the 2007 games.  The first one on the back squat and the second one a shot from the run.  Legendary big C!!!
