27 – Adrian Bozman on teaching CrossFit, judging at the CrossFit Games, and garage gym training

- No Comments

Adrian Bozman, known to many as “Boz,” has been a staple figure in the CrossFit community for nearly the past decade. Coming from a well-rounded fitness background that even included circus training, CrossFit was a natural transition. After attending his Level 1 Seminar, Boz started helping out the seminar staff and eventually found himself traveling the world teaching the philosophy and methodology of CrossFit as a Seminar Staff Flowmaster. Boz is also well-known as Head Judge of The CrossFit Games and has played a large role in the development of the standards and judging of this still very young and evolving sport. I was excited to sit down with Boz to find out more about his background, experiences, and perspectives from his very unique vantage point within the CrossFit community.
