I AM CFG (Aaron Box)


I do not look like the guys you see on TV at the CrossFit Games!

I am a middle aged guy with very grey hair that is rapidly turning loose. I believe I am the most average looking guy on the planet because at least once a week someone says they think I look someone they know. If you saw me on the street your first question would likely be “how do I get signed up with AARP”?…but I love CrossFit and know that I can do it! I may not look like the guys on TV but I like being stronger than my teenage boys. They may be taller but they cannot touch me in the gym. Name a lift or exercise and I can do it better than them now. I like being in pretty good shape. I like having great numbers for blood pressure, heart rate, and cholesterol. I like being able to out-lift the majority of the high school football players I help coach. I like being able to walk on my hands and do pull ups and muscle ups. I like beating my old records on time or performance in a workout. I like beating the older guys and sometimes the younger guys in workouts from time to time.

I am a husband, I am a dad, I am a coach, I am CFG.
