This Regionals season he’s going to all of the North American Regionals.

“That’s six of the eight,” he says. “You’ll see me in one region on a Saturday, and then I’ll fly overnight to the next region so I can be there for Sunday.

“Next year, I don’t know what I’m going to do, though, because I’m not sure the Regionals format will look the same.”

“That’s all I’m going to say about that for now,” adds Castro with a smile.

This is from a Reebok.com article about the man we all love to hate – Dave Castro, director of the CrossFit Games.

He’s the mastermind behind all of the workout for the Open, Regionals and Games. The article gives us a look at some of his thoughts on programming, why there are no barbells at Regionals and maybe some hints on where the sport is headed in the next few years.
