    Paul Pepe has put a lot of sweat and blood into the CrossFit community at large and is a quiet humble living legend within the CFHSV community. Paul Pepe is the real deal in and out of the gym. Much respect and appreciation for all youve done and represent

    I’ve had the privilege to know Paul for a very long time now. He is truly one awesome family man. He is a great role model, who also happens to be an outstanding CrossFitter. Thanks for everything Paul. Keep showing out stud!

    I love crossfit for so many reasons, one of which is the people you meet whom you would never otherwise cross paths.
    Paul Pepe is one of those wonderful athletes. So happy and grateful for his friendship.

    Thanks for the kind words everyone. Means a lot to me. Next to my own wife and kids CFHSV is the best family I could ever ask for. Grateful for the honor and privilege to to be here. It is not the facilities, athletes or even the coaches that make this place special. It is the unconditional love and respect we show to one another every day that sets this place apart from all the rest.
