The man

before you is a very special man. Anyone that knew him would agree that he was one of a kind.

His name, Richard Russell Smith, the inspiration for our gym here on his home ranch. He was the kind of man most aspire to be.

Richard lived his life selflessly, he never did anything that wouldn’t benefit the community or organization as a whole. He was a business man, a man’s man, a connoisseur of life, a family man and a dear, dear friend.

We here at Richard Russell CrossFit want to coach and live by the morals that Richard showed everyone every day of his life: treat others as you wish to be treated and the only way to grow is to grow together.
