On February 12-13, 2008, a CrossFit HQ staff went to Alamo CrossFit in San Antonio, TX for a special Level 1 certification seminar. Members of the Warrior Transition Battalion from the Brooke Army Medical Center gathered to learn the basics of functional movement and how to scale for any starting point.
In this video by CrossFit Again Faster, Kyle Maynard talks about the gains he’s seen—both physical and mental—after every CrossFit workout.
At the event, Kyle went head to head against SSG Gabriel Wright in a Fran demo. Gabriel is one of the physical therapists working with the warriors on their recoveries. He had been dabbling with CrossFit workouts, but this was his first Fran. Kyle did modified KB thrusters and ring-ups. It wasn’t close.
