Swagger

“I want to thank you for the programming. I don’t play football, but I did reap the benefits of your training today. I caught a guy breaking into my truck and trying to steal my dog and guitar this afternoon. WTF!

CrossFit Football for CrossFit

“John…Let me first say, I love the site and the seminar. I was at your CFFB seminar last year and learned for than I could process. I was really excited about the program and have had great results with our high school athletes and people training for the CrossFit Games. My only issue is implementing it on a mass scale with our general population. I find two lifts and a short metcon take more time than most of our general population CrossFitters have. I should have asked you while I was at the cert but didn’t dawn on me till I got home. How would you structure the program in a general CrossFit setting?… Read More »
