Adam Brigges is the Co-owner of CrossFit South San Clemente in the Southern part of Orange County California. His sister, Rachel Medina, sent in these pictures and told us a little story about Adam.

Adam has always dreamed of being an entrepreneur and owning his own box. Bizarrely enough, at a very young age Adam has had an obsession with "boxes," and believe it or not, I am referring to the average cardboard box.

Since the age of three, Adam was always trying to fit himself into the smallest cardboard box possible and would stay in the box for the majority of the day. When it was time for dinner, and my mom had to pull Adam out of the box, he would throw a huge tantrum until he was able to return to his comfort zone. My parents were beside themselves and had no clue what to do when it came time for our annual vacation to Big Sur, California. I remember the struggle they had trying to get Adam into the motor home and buckled in. This two hour ordeal resulted in multiple headaches and alas, no bon' voyage to Big Sur. So, my mother had the brilliant idea to take Adam's box and buckle him into the motor home through the cardboard itself. Genius!

Our new facility is phenomenal and I'm so happy that now there is room for more of us in "The Box." Good work little brother!
