Hoby Darling is an athlete coming to us by way of CrossFit Costa Mesa. While many of Hoby's strengths lie in the running category; think a 5:40 mile, 60 second 400m, Ironmans, marathons, etc. He also balances those capacities out with impressive numbers in both metcon and strength efforts. Hoby has an extensive athletic background and combines that with the responsibility of chasing kids around the house as well as being a member of the executive team at Volcom. One of his long-term goals is to qualify for the Boston Marathon while maintaining 400+ pound deadlift and a FGB score above 360. Hoby will be competing at next weekend's SoCal Sectionals.
