5/5

I have been doing CrossFit for 3 years. I recently moved and needed to find a new gym. After trying out a few in my new area I decided to join CrossFit Iron Flag. The programming is great and always challenges me. The coaches are very friendly, encouraging, and helpful! I’ve gotten several PRs after becoming a member at Iron Flag and I’m looking forward to making more progress and making new friends who have similar values and goals! I love their focus on overall health and fitness and Coach Guy has awesome podcasts!

Guy Petruzzelli

NUTRITION DIRECTOR

As a 42 year old professional athlete, who, at the age of 20, found a real passion for multi-sport, was forced to take some time away. I was hit by a car in 1996, leaving me rather injured and finding a comeback difficult. So I finished law school, passed the Illinois Bar exam and thought my time in the sport was over.

As the 2010 season started to heat up in June, I was out for a training ride and once again, hit by a car. This time, I was left with a broken right collarbone and 3 broken ribs. My doctor insisted that even with surgery, I would miss the remainder of the season and would most likely not even be able to train hard until the start of 2011. I had started training at Crossfit DuPage in May 2010, and knew that Crossfit would help me get back healthier and fitter than ever.

With the help of Brian MacKenzie, founder of Crossfit Endurance, I was able to achieve 2 things in less than 5 weeks – continue to speed up my healing process, and improve fitness. When I went to see my doctor at week 9 post-surgery, the x-rays showed 90% bone growth. This wasn’t by accident; this was due to following Crossfit Strength and Crossfit Endurance principles. Best part, I’m still improving. To spread the word of my recovery and passion, I was the focus of a Triathlete Magazine article in the February 2011 edition, written by TJ Murphy. I was then added to the book written by Brian MacKenzie in November 2012 – “Power, Speed, Endurance, a skill based approach to endurance training”, and featured in Chris Solomon’s article in the January 2013 issue of Outside Magazine, where Chris chronicles his use of CrossFit Endurance to train for a marathon. To prove that I practice what I preach, I’ve been working with Cody Burhardt, head coach at Athlete’s Cell, to help me reach my current world rank of 11th in Duathlon.

My goal is 3 fold – to constantly build on the success I have had in racing particularly in the last 2 years, having stood atop the podium at every distance of racing 21 times, and see this sport continue to grow, change lives for the better and gain the mainstream attention it deserves. But above all, I want to impact the lives of the people I come in contact with, helping them realize there is an athlete in all of us, and that once we stop becoming our biggest obstacle, anything is possible. So, stay strong.

Melissa Gaspar

Head Master's Coach

Melissa found a love of Crossfit in her 50’s. She is dedicated to working with our Master’s (50+) population and loves learning new skills to help improve their quality of life and passion for fitness.  

“It’s a pretty cool thing to be able to learn new things and develop new skills at my age. To know I’m in the best shape of my life at 58 is awesome. There’s a weird invisibility that happens to women as we age, as if we’re somehow meant to just fade into the woodwork.  But CrossFit has taught me how to take up more space in the world – figuratively and literally. I didn’t want to be relegated to just a 6′ X 3′ yoga mat or treadmill. I want to take up more space: pick up heavy weights, pull myself over the bar, and someday – walk on my hands.”
