The Good Fight

“Your needs and the Olympic athlete’s differ by degree not kind. Increased power, strength, cardiovascular and respiratory endurance, stamina, flexibility, speed, coordination, agility, balance, and accuracy are each important to the world’s best athletes and to our grandparents. The amazing truth is that the very same methods that elicit optimal response in the Olympic or professional athlete will optimize the same response in the elderly.”

—Greg Glassman, from Foundations, 2002.

I too love this. This is what CrossFit is about. Not Rick,Matt and the .01%. For anyone that thinks they can't start. That they are too far gone. Good Coaches is the foundation of knowing how to scale for who ever walks in that door and wants to try. Poor health is hitting all of our families, black, white and American Indian. It is set up to be free for anyone that will log on to the site and scale the workout of the day (WOD) thank you greg

I love this video series. My uncle passed away last week at 75, plagued by decades of smoking, uninformed nutrition and lack of exercise. Like most of my extended, African American family, he lived in a rural South Carolina, in abject poverty. They see working out at the handful of gyms available to them as a privilege reserved for only for wealthier white people (!!!). They see CrossFit videos and literally cannot relate. These videos are giving me hope for a path to share what I’ve learned from CrossFit with my family in a way that’s more accessible for where they are at and what they have available to them.
