John Welbourn is the man. What a great interview. I work at a high school as an athletic trainer and was always curious how to wrap this crossfit monster around specific sports and their seasons. I can not wait for this site and seriously a Heavy Fran with 220 pound thrusters is straight up sick. Awesome Idea!!

I have met a fair-few professional athletes. Have even worked with/trained a several. None have had the attitude of John W. Classy guy. It speaks volumes that he has the passion to pass what he knows on to others. Most of the pro athletes I have worked with are anxious to retire and move on. Most are hoping to make bank on their famous names. Ask them about what it is that helped propel them compete at the highest levels and they are simply not interested in helping you - unless you have a pretty thick wallet.

I was working with a professional skier once. Ranked 7th in the world. Right after our workout, some high school kids approached my guy (they had the courtesy to wait)and asked for an autograph. He was professional enough to comply. They started asking questions and he blew them off. Said that he didn't know anything, and that they should ask me. By the way John W. comes across, I doubt he'd be that way.

Fun interview. Second time in a row that we went WAY off topic. Had several pages of questions. Only asked a few. I FRICKIN love that!

Thanks for the int. John W. Damn good stuff, man.
