If you ask 100 people to define beauty, you’ll get 100 different answers. Most will falter and offer descriptions instead.
CrossFit athletes are now rejecting previous definitions of beauty and putting forth their own, a definition researched and confirmed in every workout and every rep.
“There are people who spend their entire lives allowing the reflection in the mirror to determine their self-esteem, submitting to a cultural judgment established decades ago. But in CrossFit gyms all over the world, mirrors are conspicuous by their absence. Fitness is gauged in reps, in speed, power, virtuosity. And beauty is measured in joy. And in pride,” says narrator Marty Cej.
CrossFit presents a new aesthetic based on function, performance and confidence.
“I love the way that CrossFitters look because it’s just so real,” says three-time CrossFit Games competitor Ruth Anderson Horrell, pointing to an aesthetic that’s born of a relentless pursuit of work capacity and the inner strength that comes from achieving it.
“It’s beautiful to be fit, but I think … anyone who carries themselves with confidence will be beautiful,” says Michele Letendre.
Four-time Games competitor Austin Malleolo agrees: “If you want to look good, do stuff well, and do what life demands of you, and everything else will fall into place.”

Trevor was born in the month of July, in the year of 1984. He is the child of two parents, Dan and Carol, who raised him to know what it means to say, “Yes!” He loves animals, especially dogs and cats.
Trevor’s father and mother were both cheerleaders in high school, a path that he decided not to take. Instead, he played soccer, ran track and cross country during his high school tenure. Post high school, Trevor had the opportunity to play collegiate soccer at two different schools. He also had a brief stint on the University of Utah cycling team as well as competed in a handful of triathlons.
Trevor’s first official CrossFit WOD was on February 22, 2012, compliments to Zach Ludlow. In Trevor’s own words, “It CRUSHED me!” That moment Trevor decided that CrossFit brought something that many other workout programs didn’t have. He decided at that time that CrossFit would be his source for high intensity exercise.
He loves to talk so next time you come to WOD at GSL, say “Hi!”
Trevor hold his CrossFit Level 1 Trainer Certificate and also maintains an active Gold’s Gym membership.
Matt checked out CrossFit on a whim, after years of working out independently and just getting bored and frustrated with a lack of results. After his first trial workout, which left him sitting on a weight stack trying not to pass out, he was hooked. Since then he’s pushed himself harder than he ever though possible and is never bored with CrossFit.
“I love how much CrossFit benefits my life outside the gym. I’d never anticipated how much facing my fears, failing, trying again, pushing myself, and succeeding at the gym would help me do the same at work and at home. I’m physically, emotionally and mentally stronger because of CrossFit.”
Matt got his CrossFit Level 1 Training Certificate in October 2012 and loves to push other people and help them achieve their goals.
“With training, I’m always surprised by how proud I am when an athlete finally has that light bulb moment and can achieve that new movement or accomplishes a goal. It motivates me to keep moving and I love getting to cheer them on.”
