Round 1: Calvin vs TRB

The pit crew recently got a crash course in boxing from pro boxer Calvin Brock. They were warned ahead of time not to get on Calvin's bad side - he currently holds a 29-1 record! The guys headed down to The Ultimate Gym in Charlotte where Calvin had them doing shadow boxing, speed bags, heavy bags, and jump ropes. He even trained them in 3 minute intervals – just like boxing rounds – for about an hour and a half. Wondering why we have our pit crew boxing? Pit Crew Coach Greg Miller believes in training through different sport disciplines and says there’s a strong correlation between boxing and pit crew action – footwork, hand-eye coordination, rhythm, fast paced action, and breathing techniques. The training was so intense that Greg said he “kept waiting for Rocky to come out!” (see Calvin in photo on left)
