710 KIRO reporter Erin Covey came by the gym to talk to Dave. She says, "The training is in a warehouse. It barely even looks like a gym." Dave says, "The tool isn't really important, what's important is the movement."

"I will be hosting the seminar in order to expand the use of gymnastic skills and drills for those wanting to obtain proper form and use of gymnastics in CrossFit training. Proper execution of skills and drills for rings, parralettes, high bar/pull up bars, handstands. Emphasis will be on a multitude of movements, but not limited too, levers, planches, HSPU's, handstands, dislocates, skin the cat, ground work, L-sits, muscle ups and so much more. I want to challenge all comers with gymnastic moves but also show the importance of proper spotting, safety, while teaching the skill cues so trainers or trainees can pass on proper gymnastic movements in their workouts. There will be lecture and practical application of all drills taught with lots of Q & A. Not to mention my Texas sized humor will delight all those within ear shot. ;-)" Jeff Tucker
