Craig Titley Uses Circuit Works in Santa Monica, CACraig Titley has had some very serious battles with health issues that would have deeply affected the average person. Not Craig! He may be three lives down, but his dedication to Circuit Works helps him keep his body fit and strong. Here is Craig Titley’s story: 

I first started working out with Raphael in the summer of 1999 at his beach boot camp (back before he was a nice guy, a time when he wore military fatigues and actually tried to kill us during each and every workout). 


At the time I was 25 lbs over weight, had high cholesterol, and hadn’t really worked out in over five years. It was brutal, but by the end of his 8 week bootcamp I had lost all the weight, gained a 6-pack, lowered my cholesterol to the awesome zone, and changed my lifestyle forever. I have never had to battle with those issues ever again.

Three years later I was diagnosed with a cyst in my brain that had to be removed (the cyst, not my brain). It was a somewhat risky surgery and I was told that the recovery could take as long as 6 months. To get ready for the surgery I trained harder then ever with Raphael at his breach boot camp because I knew that the better shape I was in, the better the odds for a successful surgery and a speedy recovery. When I checked into the hospital the doctors were amazed and said I had “the heart rate of a professional athlete.” The surgery was a success and within 48 hours I was showing off for the nurses by doing push-ups. Instead of the potential 6 months recovery, it took me 6 weeks and I was soon working out again with the doc’s full blessing.

Over the years, due to work schedules and the chaos of life, I was only able to sporadically work out at Raphael’s newest and greatest venture, Circuit Works. I was still in pretty good shape (and had been ever since that first beach boot camp back in ’99), but every time I was able to go consistently, I quickly got back into GREAT shape. Then, a year and half ago, while doing some mundane work around the house, I herniated a disc in my lower back (getting old’s a bitch). Surgery was an option on the table (one that I refused). I was told that at the very least I should stop doing any kind of running (a depressing thing to hear for a guy who loves 5ks, 10ks, mud runs, etc.). So what did I do? I started working out consistently at Circuit Works. Slowly at first, then gradually building up to the point where I was running 12mph on the treadmill during sprints. I was soon back to running 5ks again as well. Obviously, when the doctors said “never run again” they forgot to consult with Raphael and the Circuit Works team.

The moral to this story: there is nothing wrong with you that Raphael and Circuit Works cannot fix! (Except maybe a bad attitude… and I’ve actually seen a few of those get adjusted as well).

Thank you Raphael. Thank you Circuit Works. Three lives down, six more to go!!!
