CrossFit’s Second Fitness Standard

Picture a hopper loaded with an infinite number of physical challenges where no selective mechanism is operative, and being asked to perform anyone randomly drawn from the hopper. This model suggests that your fitness can be [...]

The game sold out and there was not an empty seat in the house. [...]

Posted by: Luke
