    Joe and Mike are always trying to take it to the next level. Mike is trying to climb his way to space while Joe is climbing to defy the law of gravity. You two gentlemen are madmen in and out of the gym! CFHSV is better because of you!

  2. Mandee says:

    Oh man! Two super studs showing off their skills and working hard as always! Mike and Joe are the real deal! 🙂

  3. Patty says:

    Great guys who consistently work hard. Both are living proof that “older is better!” At least that’s what we tell each other ?

  4. KOBRA says:

    These two shoot from the hip. I wouldn’t be surprised if they were climbing the same rope trying to yank the other one down!

    You guys make it interesting, thanks Mike and Joe, and keep it up!

  5. Bradley says:

    Looking good Mike and Joe!

  6. Josh Kennedy says:

    Two of Huntsville’s finest right there climbing that rope! The leadership and intellectual firepower from Mike and Joe are leaving reasons why our fair city is routinely among the best places in the USA to live……and oh BTW, they get busy in the box every chance they get!

  9. Jada says:

    Mike and Joe are a high climbing dynamic duo !

    There are achievers and then there are high achievers. These guys are the later. They are constantly pushing the envelope and driven to perform all with a positive attitude. I suspect those qualities in part explain their remarkable lifetime accomplishments both in and out of the gym.

    They also provide considerable comic relief at the start of virtually every 7 am workout ! Glad they are a part of the Crossfit HSV family !
