  Events like German Throwdown are very important for new sports and it is important to have professionals taking care of them. This episode we meet Benedict Gebhardt who is the Managing director of the German Throwdown. He comes from a totally different realm of sports but fell in love with CrossFit while studying and being a semi-pro in golf in USA. In this episode we talk about how CrossFit can grow in Europe and how the future looks like in Germany. We also talk about the importance of having a fitness routine outside your regular sports such as Golf, Rugby and Ice-hockey. Benedict also tells us about his urge to open an own box and how that pivoted him into getting to know the founder of German Throwdown leading him at the end to become the man in charge. The event grew unexpectedly last year and he got sponsors like Reebok, Foodspring and Eleiko to help to run the event. This year we some changes in the lineup and the event will be more prepared for more expectators. We hope that German Throwdown will ignite the CrossFit torch in Europe for real and that it will inspire more kids to start doing CrossFit. Finals are held 11-12 November!

Anyone that has met Chris Hinshaw will probably confirm that he is intense, in a good way. He doesn’t leave anything to chance. This is probably also the reason why he could compete and be successful as an ironman athlete and businessman. Many top athletes have now started to listen to Chris and his methodology since he started coaching Camille Leblanc-Bazinet, Jason Khalipa, Rich Froning, Sara Sigmundsdottir, Tia-Claire Toomey, Katrin Davidsdottir and Mat Fraser. Meaning almost all top 10 athletes in the games had something to do with Chris. Was this just by accident? We don’t think so. In this quite long episode we handle many many subjects and to be honest we had the feeling there was still left to talk about. Chris shares and gives a lot of his knowledge through many platforms and he did not hold back in this episode either. We talk about different ways to program smarter to be able to do more pull ups, handstand push ups, thrusters and much more. Chris also shares what was his initial spark to begin with triathlons and to start with Ironmans and we believe this has some great take-aways for parents and/or any kind of coach out there. Feel free to comment and give us feedback. Happy to hear what you have to say.
