Athlete Spotlight: Jack Formosa


The token Aussie, the joker, and just a hard working, good dude. You always know when Jack is in the gym because he never stops talking smack! After his first CrossFit competition earlier this year his nickname ‘Dickmosa’ has stuck around but he keeps insisting we go back to his original nickname of ‘Legend’.

He has made huge progress in the gym and is the King of Rope Climbs (Legless only) and Handstand Push Ups (the more deficit the better).
