For those of you who might not know it, my husband Max runs CrossFit HAX in Harbor City, CA. He has been a diehard advocate of the CrossFit methodology since trying it out more than four years ago. He has always been into fitness & nutrition (having grown up with a dance teacher for a mom), but bringing the CrossFit lifestyle to others has been incredibly rewarding for him. I’ve been photographing people at his gym during their regular workouts and fundraisers for the last three years. Recently, he moved to a larger space, & it has been so much fun shooting pics of all his loyal old clients, & also all the new faces (& bodies) who have recently joined up. I love, love photographing bodies moving–dancers, martial artists, athletes–so for this project, I wanted to show off the hard work of all these people who carve out the time & make the effort to get & stay in shape. They come in all shapes, sizes, & backgrounds, but they share something in common: They show up. They don’t make excuses. They push their bodies & minds to the limit—at 5:00 AM or after a full day’s work, & on Saturdays. You can see how glorious the human body can be when it is molded by activity & nourished with good food. True—not everyone will do what they do (or reap the rewards) because they call it “WORKing out” for a reason: it’s work. And only the disciplined will do it.

Alice THANKS, y’all!!! And I’m truly so glad that you’re all happy with these pix, because YOU did all the (literal) heavy lifting! You all look so damn good, & my job was just to make sure that you do in the photos! Can’t wait for another round of “Black Velvet.” And if you missed this time, I’ll catch you next time! 🙂
