So this amazing place called Pink Iron exists in real life. It's where Barbie, if she were real and badass, would train and it's probably the most beautiful place I have ever been. I'm a sucker for pink. I had an entirely pink dorm room in high school and loved every damn inch of it.
I found Pink Iron while searching for CrossFits in the West Hollywood area. It's not a CrossFit affiliate but a photo of Barbell the dog appeared and I was like, wherever that dog is, I want to be too. The coaches are L1 certified and the gym follows CrossFit methodology (from what I can tell) and it's basically just awesome. They had mirrors and two treadmills, which is really the only thing that deviated from boxes I've been to other than the awesome decor.
I emailed with Owner/Coach Holly Holton and was welcomed to come by whenever I'd like while I was in town. I picked the 5 PM class, which turned out to be special because a journalist from CBS came and filmed us. The only thing that makes me perform better than the support of other fitness enthusiasts is the opportunity to be seen by others performing better with the support of other fitness enthusiasts. And since burpees were a part of the WOD, I tossed my shirt almost immediately.
