Out of the Box, Ep. 4: Singapore



Video by Amit Tripuraneni. In this series, CrossFit trainer and filmmaker Amit Tripuraneni travels around six major Asian cities, sampling the cuisine, learning about the culture and exploring the local CrossFit scene. In Episode 4, Tripuraneni travels to the densely populated island country of Singapore, which translates literally to “lion country.” This fitness hub in Southeast Asia is currently home to 17 CrossFit affiliates and a robust fitness scene that’s regularly on display with events such as dragon boat races on the Singapore River. CrossFit Mobilus coach Richmond Loo Chuan Long says the CrossFit community is growing in Singapore, particularly among women. Regional athlete Samuel Lim has been involved with CrossFit since 2007 and has seen the focus evolve to place a greater emphasis on fun and longevity. Lim coaches at CrossFit Fire City, which he proudly states is a “friendship box or community box.” One of Lim’s biggest challenges is encouraging members to eat healthy in a food-obsessed city where options are plentiful but often not healthy.

Cat Snatch Fever: A CrossFit Love Story



Video by Lindsay and Elliot Schrock. Growing up, Cat Panetta never felt like the “cool kid” and was often reminded by others that “Cat rhymes with fat.” Cat admits he had a happy, healthy childhood and family life but struggled with his relationship with food. He ended up yo-yo dieting and lost weight at times, but he never quite found a balance and always felt out of control. During one of his many trips to Hawaii, Cat was convinced by a neighbor that he should check out a free CrossFit class at the small box CrossFit Ko’Olau. The welcoming environment and the instructors’ knowledge of fitness impressed Cat, but when he moved to British Columbia, he relied on food to help him adjust. He reached a max weight of 330 lb. at 27. Wanting to finally make health and fitness a lifestyle and help others do the same, Cat pushed himself to attend a CrossFit Level 1 Certificate Course and become a coach at CrossFit Otter Point in Sooke, B.C. Cat, who is also a photographer, believes that CrossFit is “all things that make me into the person I’ve always wanted to become.” He reminds us all that it never gets easier. We just get stronger over time—and personal growth comes from experiencing hardship. The CrossFit Journal — (http://journal.crossfit.com) The CrossFit Games® – The Sport of Fitness™
