1st December 2012

As a young athlete, Coach Greg Glassman (founder of CF) believed training with weights would help him become a better gymnast. When three sets of eight lateral raises with a Ted Williams weightlifting set didn’t replicate the feeling produced by a two-minute routine on the rings or parallel bars, Coach had to get creative. After coming up with and self-testing a workout involving three rounds of 21, 15 and 9 Thrusters and pull-ups, Coach promptly threw up—but he knew he had found something that would make him better at his sport.

It was decreed that anything that leaves you on your back after 5 mins, looking up at the sky thinking “what the f**k just happened to me had to be named after a woman……And so the first lady was born and her name was FRAN.
