Our first CrossFit Malibu highlight comes from the Jones Family-Trisha, Tom, and son Jaxon- who now live up in Lake Tahoe. They made the move north after their Malibou Lake home was lost in the Woolsey Fire. Their relationship with CrossFit started prior to their experience with CrossFit Malibu- when Tom’s company produced a “Fight Gone Bad” event in Los Angeles. It was there that they heard about CrossFit, it was also there that Jax took his first reps on a C2 rower!
Shortly after, Trisha was the first member of the family to join group classes and train with us. She was a long-time member of the 9 and 10am class sessions. Tom was in the late night crew- attending individual session at all hours of the night due to a heavy work schedule. Back in those days Jaxon would show up with Trisha and hang out at the Hut, chatting with the coaches and other members… asking when HE would get to join in the workouts. Then during one CrossFIT Open, a former CFM coach, Josh- become Jaxon’s personal workout coach… running versions of the Open with him.
As years progressed, Jaxon would come in and train with us to prepare for elementary school track and field competition days then did some swim training to get ready for the school swim team. Eventually on some mountain bike riding outings in Bluffs Park he found an activity that become his thing- something he loves to do now up north (with a lot more padding!) He goes to an outdoor experiential education school near Squaw Valley!
Thanks Trisha, Tom, and Jaxon for being such a part of the CrossFit Malibu Family- there are so many more activities we shared- but having the 3 of you all a part of us at various times is what the Hut is all about! Best in Tahoe- and thanks for sharing memories!
