Quite a few of our athletes spend their 40 hour work week, or part thereof, performing some form of physical labor. Whether it's lifting and moving boxes at the grocery store, performing field tests with heavy equipment, working construction, or figthing fire and saving lives, in order to get the job done, they rely on the strength and conditioning of their bodies to help complete the task at hand. And they'll be the first to tell you the job is much easier, that they are more effective and efficient at what they do, because of their CrossFit training. But even if your 9-5 job doesn't require any physical labor, being strong and fit has its advantages when it comes to chores, yard work, weekend golf, or surviving a game of basketball with your son and his friends. Yes, being functionally fit, as we emphasize in CrossFit training, spills over into many areas of our lives. Whether we're on the clock or just taking care of business at home, being our own elite athlete makes everything better.
Workout of the Day
then, more fitness fun!
