Greg Glassman single-handedly wrote the first dozen or so issues of the CrossFit Journal. (What?! You don't have a subscription to the CFJ? Go here right now and get one. It's the best $25 you'll spend all year, trust me.) At the time, nobody had heard of the CrossFit concept, and he was a real maverick. Lucky you, the article he wrote on the first benchmark girls, "Angie", "Barbara", "Chelsea", "Diane", "Elizabeth", and "Fran" is online for free and can be downloaded here. At PVCF we program all of the original "girls" on a bi-monthly basis. We consider them a big part of CrossFit culture, and want you to get to know them as well as we do. These girls really know how to show you a good time :)
