Video of CrossFit Founder Greg Glassman at SPEAR Combatives Camp 2011

CrossFit Founder Greg Glassman

Below are 2 videos of CrossFit Founder Greg Glassman giving a lecture at Tony Blauer’s Combatives Camp in Las Vegas earlier this year. I could listen to Coach G talking all day, but I particularly like his answer to the common question:

“Which diet should I do, Paleo or Zone?”

To which he said:

“That’s like being asked out for dinner and replying with: ‘Which do you want me to do, get the right restaurant or turn up on time?'”

Hoho. Anyway, I’m sure you’ll enjoy them:

    Does he work out at all ?

    I believe so, however you can see from his limp that he has suffered some life altering injuries in the past (non done while working out I hasten to add) and is unable to even walk without a significant impairment.

    Do you know how he got injured?

    I asked him when he came over for the first cert outside of America, in Manchester England, but that was in 2008 and the memory dims. If I recall correctly, he said he’s smashed his hip up twice, once was in a rock climbing accident I think, and I’m not sure what the other time was. It might have been a motorbike accident, but don’t quote me on that, my memory might be making that up to hide it’s own deficiencies!
