As Ben's agent....the deal for the 2010 Games will have to come through me. He is, however, available for the Utah/Nevada Sectionals and the Northwest Qualifier if HQ is interested. He is somewhat of a Diva so he requires a lot to host these types of things.

Heber...you are amazing! I love your videos!

Great job to all of you who competed this weekend. I was sad that I had to miss it.

Miranda, as my agent I really need you to get Molcha Salsa to come out with a special paleo burrito for me, or just free burritos that would be great. Get me paid!!!! Ha Ha only joking :)

This video is quite the display of talent and bad-assery on your part Heber!!

This video is as good or better than NBC can put together. I suggest they send the team that did this video to the Olympics. Nice job.

Heber, what a stellar video. The music, the editing, the pacing, ...Ben. Amazing.

Jay beat me to it! I was gonna say, yes, Ben was super impressive! But Mary swept all the women's events. She was awesome to behold. Let's not forget to give the ladies their props!
Also, awesome video. Love the humor!

Nice work Tommy! First you're runner-up at the Games, next your a Level 2 Trainer, now you're putting on kick-ass events. What's next for the athlete/coach/event promoter?

Mary was clearly the most fit competitor at this event. The video was fantastic. Great humor to go along with some impressive athletic ability. Ben is in fact an animal.

I can't wait to watch Mary & Miranda go head to head at Sectionals.

Lookin' solid with your boy, Hack. :)

I dig the video...love seeing the production quality bump up and get some new original flavors. Left and right we have artists painting some great pictures of La Vida CF.

That video gives me chills every time I watch it-good job Heber and Ben! Congratulations to E-M-B/Ben C. And big props to Mary for sweeping it and making it look easy! It was an honor to join the fittest athletes in Utah for some ass-kicking WODs! Thanks to Tommy and Tyson and all the judges for putting on such a great event!

Great video Heber!

30. Travis H. wrote...

That dude's pretty funny! Only half joking about that ROM thing, right? Please post more videos with that guy. Good stuff.

31. H.D. wrote...

great video! does anyone know the name of the background song/artist?

32. Lisa K. wrote...

BRILLIANT! And I second the request for the music/artist info. It rocked.

33. Jason wrote...

So, I am now in the camp that a 400+ FGB is the most impressive CF feat. For any that have one or that have seen one, is the ball crossing or touching the 10 foot line every shot? If people are getting 400 with the ball going over the line, I would actually pay admission to watch it. Someone really needs to make a video of that because I would watch it every day.
