Teddy Hwang

Shortly after graduating from Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo, Ted found CrossFit in 2009 and became Level 1 certified the following year. He began competing in 2011 and placed 8th in the highly competitive SoCal regional in 2013 and 14th in 2014. In the 2015 California regional (where NorCal and SoCal regionals were first combined), Ted placed 14th overall. He is constantly trying to improve his skills not only to be a better athlete, but also to teach what he learns to others.

Prior to Depot, he trained from some of SoCal’s finest at Valley Crossfit. He first learned how to lift with Sean Rigsby, who currently trains with the prestigious MDUSA team, while his gymnastics work has been developed working with Dusty Hyland.
