From the Miami Herald:
Guido Trinidad describes finding CrossFit in 2008 as similar to “finding God,” “religion” and “the truth.”
Immediately, he began implementing principles of the CrossFit training regimen into his personal training company, Peak360, a CrossFit gym — known to the fitness community as a “box” — in South Miami.
After playing linebacker at Coral Park Senior High, Trinidad played college football at Benedictine College in Kansas, and had a short professional career playing football in Spain and Sweden. This new athletic endeavor, however, gave him the ability to prolong his athletic career. He eventually reached the CrossFit Games, where he finished as high as 29th in the world in 2012.
“I felt like there was a need for a competition like that here,” said Trinidad, 35, who along with his business partner, Steve Suarez, founded Wodapalooza Miami Fitness Festival — a large-scale event that features a CrossFit-style competition.
