Rob Moloney from Bay Ridge CrossFit in Brooklyn NY

Why we chose Rob:

A little bit CrossFit, a little bit Hollywood.  Rob is an exciting athlete who knows how to entertain and can bring a crowd to it's feet.  He made it to Regionals in 2014, and one of these days he's going to make it to the games.  Think the Islanders are the only athletes to watch in Brooklyn?  Think again.  Read more about Rob here.

Anthony "DiFran" DiFrancesco from Brazen Athletics - CrossFit Willow in Hoboken NJ

Why we chose Anthony:

When you think of Hoboken NJ, you probably think of Sinatra, yuppie bars and fake St. Patrick's day.  Well, you can add hardcore weightlifting to that list when Anthony is in town.  He's got a 370 lb Clean & Jerk and a 315 lb Snatch.   Who does this guy think he is?  A Jersey Matt Fraser? You can learn more about Hoboken's second favorite son here.
