You can read a book about the sea. You can look at a video about the sea. But if you never take the real plunge you don’t know what the sea is actually like! Well, I took the plunge in the CrossFit Sea at the Level 1 cert in San Diego, and this is my little story.
Let me first introduce myself. My name is Henk Verschuur; I am the president of the Dutch Martial Arts Federation (a member of the National Olympic Committee of the Netherlands). We are always looking for ways to improve our athletes, and although we produce a large number of world and continental champions, events are getting less easy to win.
I had the brilliant idea of testing CrossFit as the physical basic training for our man in the heavyweight division. To make a long story short, the new heavyweight champion Sanda lives in, and originated from, the Netherlands, Europe. We needed to know more about CrossFit!
