Congratulations and great work. You should be very proud of yourself; It is clear that everyone at your gym already is.
That was simply inspiring. I hope you will continue to work hard and keep pressing on to achieve new goals.
Best vid for a long time! Nice work Cobalt!
This video really hits close to home for me. I started out at 320 and im down to 250 and RXing every other day now!!! Much love to Coach glassman for inventing something that helped me find myself through hard work again!!!!
Cobalt, keep up the good work... inspire and change other people's lives. Be proud brother.
Inspiring on all counts in all ways. Good on ya Cobalt. Good on ya, Defiant.
GREAT ! GREAT ! GREAT!!
You are motivation! Keep that engine gunnin'
Also, you have a super hero name.
Crossfit is great for so many reasons, most of all because of the people. Great job Cobalt and great job Crossfit Defiant. Lotta love and compassion in this community.

You're an inspiration to all of us! Wonderful story! Keep up the hard work and have fun!
Why havent we been getting classical music, poetry, etc recently?? I need my brain food on these rest days!
Just brilliant for you Cobalt, well done- I'm inspired
Awesome video. Congrats to Cobalt! You had the courage to go that first day and then the perseverance to keep going...it was in you the whole time. Great way to pay it forward by now inspiring others. Keep it up.
Also, congrats to Defiant to welcoming all..to me that's really what fitness and CF is all about.
You are truly inspirational, not only for people who want to make their life better, but for anyone in general...keep up the great work!...
Awesome pic!...kid really is giving it all on the sled pull...
Cobalt, you are awesome. You are CrossFit. Keep it up!
Nice job Cobalt! Very inspiring!!
Thanks for sharing the inspiring story, Cobalt. And seriously, with a name like that you must have known all along that you had a steely-framed machine hiding somewhere inside. Glad you finally brought it out!
Awesome, love seeing these kind of videos.
Nice work Cobalt. Just awesome.
Hope you're still going strong!
Cobalt. A badass name worthy of such a badass person. Keep going man! :D
best video in a long time.
Cobalt, inspiring work, keep it up!!
Wow! Cobalt - that is true courage!Your grit is what true heroes are made of. You didn't let your past be an excuse, you just did what you saw needed to be done. I'm going to tell your story to so many people! Great work!
Awesome video, its so inspiring to see such joy come from CrossFit and its commuity. Keep up the great work Cobalt!
I have some questions for anyone to answer on this rest day. I read all the posts and notice a great deal of complaints in regard to the programming of the WOD's and how bad they are. Being that I am relatively new to crossfit I would like to know what is wrong with them? Who posts them? And is there a method to their madness? One would figure that being on the official crossfit website, they would be pretty well put together wouldn't they?
Great video - way to go Cobalt.
I used to welcome rest days, now its kind of a bummer.
Rock Star name !
Great job all the way around.
M/ 38/ 134 lbs/ 5'-6"
I did a different early morning WOD today:
5 rounds of 20 KB swings (1.5 pood) + 20 Wallballs (20 lb - 10feet) with 1 minute rest between rounds
I did this in about 14:50 - including the 4 minutes of rest inbetween rounds
(I took too much rest after the 4th round... I was gassed and wanted to really attack each round... so I rested another 15-20 seconds and then did the last round full blast...
I did all KB swings unbroken... most of my wallballs were 17 + 3.. the 4th round I droped the ball as it slipped out of my hands on the 6th rep.. then I took a few seconds and did the last 14... kind of a reverse of what I was doing all other rounds.
See the CrossFit Training Guide article, "Programming and Scaling" (pp.84-88) for the theory behind CrossFit programming.
Inspirational story :) Amazing Job!
Made up Monday's this morning, with slight modification.
15 chest to bar pull-ups
95# power cleans, 15 reps
Very inspiring story. Awesome, Cobalt!
What an inspiring man!!! As for my rest day spent an hour in hot yoga...ahhhhhhhhh!!! Now relaxing watching movies for the rest of the day!! Well deserved!:-D
Made me well up a bit.
Cobolt, you represent all that is right in CrossFit. The power of CrossFit is it's ability to change / renew lives.
M/45/6'0"/189 (yeah, dropped another pound)
CFWU x 3 (minus pull-ups)
Made up WOD 120903 - Monday
3 rds for time of:
15 Chest-to-Bar Pull-ups
15 Sumo-Deadlift High Pulls, 95#
As RX'd: 15:35
Very Cool Video. Extremely Cool Name. Keep it up Cobalt!
Cobalt! You represent in action what CrossFit is meant to be. Thank you for the video, and keep up the great work!
100 Thrusters catch-up!
Upstate NY here we come!
This is exactly what we need to see more of! Congrats Cobalt. You will change what I do every day. I'd love to see more updates and follow your progress because you strike as the type to keep going and going.
Three rounds for time of:
15 Chest to bar pull-ups (mostly regular pull ups)
95 pound Sumo-deadlift high-pull, 15 reps
weak today - from yesterday's WOD.
Is it just me, or do mainsite workouts keep getting harder with no real improvement in the average athletes posting their results? I followed this site religiously from 2006 through 2008 and never saw a 225 pound clean or even a 275 pound deadlift.
Finally had a chance to watch the video.
Great job Cobalt! Keep it up.
Great video! I love the pic as well. Those kids are giving it and seem determined. I wonder if they'll take turns dragging, pushing and riding?
Havin trouble keepin myself from goin ass to grass on thrusters. If i catch myself right after gettin bellow parallel i feel like i lean to far forward. Any thoughts to correct this.
CFWU x 3
BS up to 285 x 2
No joke I got a tear in my eye. This guy IS a rock star and a TRUE inspiration; great job young Sir!
You rock..keep up the good work.this is why I love crossfit..it's for everyone.
