Crossfit - Texas Style

For me, it wouldn't be time off unless I'm also scheduling a shoot.  I took a visit to see family in Texas over a weekend and planned to also visit my sister & brother-in-law's Crossfit they own in Allen, TX.  Its called Crossfit FX TX.

I was given free reign to shoot whatever I want - something every photographer loves - since it gives me a chance to just explore anything I see that's interesting.

For their club, they have things divided into different divisions: Pink Barbell, Crossfit and for kids, etc.  I got started with the Pink Barbell group which happened to be a couple lovely ladies that can certainly lift more than I can so I made sure they were okay with me taking pictures before I started - kidding! They knew I would be there.

Next I kind of just moved my lights where i needed them to be and started shooting.  The vibe in the gym was very relaxed and everyone was very approachable.  Probably why they have so many consistent members return again and again.

 My sister brought in some donuts from  Max's Donut Shop  (a local favorite).  As you can see, they are Texas size!

 Rob was pushing some decent weight here.  As you can see from his face, he was pretty determined!

 This is a client of Dylan's (my brother-in-law) and as you can see from her face, its hard work.

Thanks for the opportunity to capture what happens on any given Saturday at Crossfit FX TX.  I look forward to more shoots in the future.
