If you haven't seen this video on Youtube I'd HIGHLY recommend it.
When I tell people I'm a Crossfit coach, I get very similar reactions. Most see it as a easy way to get hurt, but in actuality, if you have GOOD coaches, it's a way to stay out of injury. It's a way to help prepare you for a functional life.
A life where you can be practical in your career, a life where you continually chase your kids around a playground, stay out of the nursing home longer, and out of the doctor's office from pain caused from an inactive lifestyle combined with bad nutrition.
Knowledgeable coaches make the difference when it comes to the actual activity. Good coaches provide instruction, education, guidance and motivation to push you to your truest potential in a safe environment.
Good coaches guide clients through the proper movement along with body awareness and correlation to real life scenarios.
What type of functional training are you including in the your weekly training?
I'm passionate about running, fitness, nutrition and all things that make me and everyone else a better version of ourselves.
