Meet Derek Forrest, a sports anchor and reporter for WEWS-TV in Cleveland and the newest member of the CrossFit Media team. Forrest will host the upcoming CrossFit Open announcements.
Forrest was initially drawn to CrossFit when he saw a video in 2013 called “Letting Beauty Speak.” After following CrossFit Media for a few years, he decided to put the methodology to the test himself.
The former baseball player started CrossFit in 2017 after becoming bored of his normal exercise routine. Forrest says, “I wanted something more entertaining for myself, more enjoyable… (I) saw the CrossFit workouts and I was like, ‘Those would be fun. Let’s do that.’”
