Why CrossFit works for me:
A long, long time ago in high school, I played multiple sports year round. I played hard and had some injuries, and taught myself to play through them. I didn’t know how they would compound in the future. Fast forward a few (or 3) decades and I had limited range of motion in several joints. Some limitations I hadn’t even realized until learning the functional movements in CrossFit. In the last three years, those limitations have either diminished or disappeared entirely.
There are many other reasons why I love doing and coaching CrossFit, but the top three are:
- It is never the same
- The WOD is the WOD—just get it done.
- Getting to see to see people achieve things they never though their bodies could do.
- It truly is for everyone—everything can be scaled to fit the individual.
Favorite WOD or movements:
Burpees - because I could always do them, and Overhead Squat - because I thought I would never be able to them.
