CrossFit to Lead Workout at Los Prietos Boys Camp

Trainers and gym members volunteer to reach out to the young men

CrossFit Pacific Coast is taking CrossFit on the road and heading up to the Los Prietos Boys Camp, where it will lead the boys there through a grueling CrossFit WOD (Workout of the Day) specifically designed by CPC head programmer Eric Malzone and led by CrossFit trainers and gym members.

The Los Prietos Boys Camp was established in 1944 as a local commitment option for delinquent males ages 13 to 18. Los Prietos offers a 120- or a 180-day program, and wards earn their way out of the program based on their participation and behavior.

CrossFit Pacific Coast co-owner Traver Boehm sees exercise as an essential part of the rehabilitation process and a great way to give back to the community.

“We go up there because we can,” Boehm said, “and because you realize beyond the tough stares, the neck tattoos and the hard attitudes lie young men and young boys who are looking for someone else to care about them.”

This is the second time that CrossFit Pacific Coast has volunteered to lead a workout at the Los Prietos Boys Camp, and the first time that it will be bringing gym members along as a part of the experience.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
