Over the holidays Pope and his family went to Manila for the first time since moving to the States 16 years ago. Much to his relatives surprise, the first thing Pope and his sister Yasmin (a CrossFit Gotham member) wanted to do was hit up the local CrossFit Affiliate for a workout. Well, they found it, CrossFit Manila/Global City, located on the Philippine Army Headquarters at Fort Bonifacio.
They were the only ones in attendance to the 7:30 AM class on a Tuesday morning, but Coach Byron at CF Manila was happy to put them through the paces. Pope noted that the tropical weather certainly helps you get warmed up, but I’m not sure how much evidence of perspiration is visible in the photo provided. Thanks for sharing Pope!
Did you go somewhere or do something interesting over the holidays? Got pictures? Become semi-famous, and share them with the CrossFit Fenway community.
