Cave Crossfit member, Fabian DeGarbo, recently completed the Malibu Triathlon on September 14th. The majority of his training consisted of Cave Crossfit, and Crossfit Cardio classes! He finished the course of a half-mile swim, 18 mile bike ride over the hills on PCH, and a 4 mile run in 2 hours, 2 minutes. “I really wanted to break 2 hours” he said, “but the waves were huge and that really slowed my swim. Now I have a goal for next year.”
This is the shortest race Fabian has ever done, focusing mostly on Ironman 70.3 distance. “Crossfit has made me a faster swimmer and runner. I encourage everyone of all levels to try it.”
Though race season is over for this year, he has already started training for another Ironman, and a 50 mile trail run race in his home state of Colorado next summer. Fabian is great example of how CrossFit can help any type of athlete achieve his goals. Good luck to Fabian on his future races!
