Devin Ford Regionals 2013



Devin is a 5 time regional competitor, full time athlete and owner of CrossFit Transcend. Growing up as a martial arts student Devin received his 2nd degree black belt by the age of 12. It was clear that competition and physical performance would be a huge passion for him. After he tried various arts such as jui-jitsu, muy thai, tae kwon do, boxing and plenty others he found CrossFit. Ever since that day over 5 years ago Devin has done nothing but learn the science and the workings of the physical body with extra focus on nutrition to better himself and others around him. Now, Devin is a full time athlete and owner of CrossFit Transcend, he is coached by the first CrossFit Games Champion James Fitzgerald and travels frequently to learn and to train among the best.


Devin was a student at many formal colleges including John Jay and Stony Brook university with majors ranging from biochemistry, psychology and English. After attempting to use what he learned in the real world he was amazed how little he had been taught, since then he had abandoned the norm route of education and learned on his own. Eventually Devin learned first hand among the brightest minds in the fitness world including James FitzGerald, John Berardi, Robb Wolf, Lorean Cordain, Dr. Barry sears, Gray Cook, Tim Ferris and Greg Glassmen. Devin continues to increase his knowledge of health and fitness and share it here on his blog. Devin offers personal programing and nutritional consultations as well as onsite coaching and programming.

Being “EliteFit” is not just about being physically fit, but how you get there. To be the best requires more than general guidelines, it requires a determined approach to strategically attaining your goals and what you want. Settling is not an option.

To get results you need to get smart, train hard and never settle for less then what you want. This is as true in the gym as it is in life. I found what I had the hunger to compete for and I wouldn’t dare settle for less. You shouldn’t either!

That’s what this blog is for; to help you reach your specific goals, and settle for no less along the way. Inside the box, and out.
