Gil studied martial arts through his childhood to the age of 20. He says, at times he was amazed at the limits your body can be pushed to and how it adapts.

He believes that you decide your potential. Gil says, “I have seen people accomplish things I thought to be impossible.”
“Impossible means different things for different people, the harder you try the more the impossible becomes possible.”
The choice is yours!
Co-Founder and Co-Owner of CrossFit Newton
Jodie has been a full-time Biology and Anatomy & Physiology Teacher at Newton North High School for 10 years. Jodie has been a competitive fitness and figure athlete since 1999 and holds several titles regionally and nationally. Previously, she was a competitive triathlete. She has a 13 year old son, Charlie and a 2 year old, girl, Olivia.
Jodie is currently in the best shape of her life, post second baby, completely because of CrossFit training. “CrossFit just works, hands down, for busy athletes that want to get it done in the gym! I have been working out my entire life and spent countless hours doing cardio and traditional workouts. Nothing gives results like CrossFit, whether in athletic performance, building athletic physiques, and/or feeling super healthy. CrossFit is the future of fitness! I’m so psyched to share it with all of you!”
If I were feeling a little more lawless, I’d gather all the copies of Cosmo and Seventeen, douse them in kerosene, and strike a match. I’d throw in reams of print ads from Calvin Klein and watch with delight as Kate Moss’ stick-thin image was reduced to carbon. I’d add copies of Shape and Runner’s World until the flames reached toward the heavens, and then I’d crank call the editorial desk at Muscle and Fitness until they stopped publishing pictures of women on steroids.
I’d get the master tapes of America’s Next Top Model and dub over them with“Nasty Girls”, broadcasting the results on every television station in America. I’d skywrite “CrossFit.com”across the Boston skyline, and gently admonish the hoards of long distance runners trotting along the Charles River—with a bullhorn.
I’d take every woman with mass media-induced ideals of beauty, and I’d show them what it really means to be beautiful.
