Attraction details
Owner description: Barrio 12 Crossfit is a family based business owned by Jose Mendizabal A.K.A Mendi and wife Ileana Iguina. Our history started on March 2012 after Jose completed his last Triathlon. Coach Mendi decided to look for other sports that did not sacrifice time from the family like long distance triathlon did. Thanks to a great friend and martial arts mentor Coach Ruben Rivera, the first Level 1 Crossfit Coach in Puerto Rico, opened up his doors and started coaching us in the privacy of his own home. After Jose completed the CF Endurance Seminar him and his wife started their long quest of CrossFit training. They decided to start small and commenced their soon to be passion for CrossFit out of an Auto Shop they owned in Santurce. Soon friends and family started to join in, and slowly a community was born. They were well aware of the potential and impact this passion they had would have on society and together they decided to take it one step further.

I dropped in during a trip to San Juan. I couldn't do that days workout so I decided to do open gym and my own workout. One of the coaches helped me tweak my workout and then stood by helping me through the workout the entire time.
