Kelly Starrett and Chris Spealler are both HQ trainers and affiliate owners who joined Justin on Episode 103 of CrossFit Radio, webcast live at 6 p.m. PDT on Wednesday, Jan. 20, 2010.

Justin began the show by reading two e-mails he received from listeners this past week.

5:00 Kelly Starrett, a doctor of physical therapy, owns San Francisco CrossFit with his wife Juliet. He also conducts the incredibly popular CrossFit Movement and Mobility Certifications. Kelly spoke about the certs and gave information about the topics covered and how they benefit CrossFitters and trainers alike. He also discussed a different certification he’s putting together as an additional resource for those working to recover anatomical function. “K-Star” detailed how you can sign up and, as always, shared some great information on how to properly warm up in order to avoid injury.

34:06 Chris Spealler is a top HQ trainer and the owner of CrossFit Park City. He recently went to India and visited Sri Ram Ashram, an orphanage outside of Haridwar, India. Home to 65 abandoned children, the orphanage has a CrossFit program courtesy of Rashmi Cole. Chris talked about his experiences on the trip and how the kids who call the ashram home have taken to CrossFit. Speal spent three days with the young athletes and trained one young man to be a better trainer so the kids would continue to have good coaching after Chris returned to Utah. One of CrossFit’s smaller athletes, Chris is nevertheless a top performer, and he gave his thoughts on whether or not fitness is relative depending on a person’s size and body type.

From one CrossFitting bastard to another, your show is always fresh, funny and very informative. Great work. I am an affiliate owner and a coach working with a very mixed-age clientele so K Starr's mobility posts, interviews and videos are a staple of my continuing ed. Loved to hear the breaking news on your show that he is going to be offering an expanded two day program.

Thanks too for all the interviews with affiliates, big and small. The candid discussions of running a box help steepen the learning curve for those of us who are just starting out. Keep them coming.

As much as we all love, want to be and want to train firebreathers, I have found some of my most satisfying work helping the deconditioned and decrepit gain function through CrossFit. It would be cool to hear your guests talk about that kind of work and the importance of months-long on ramping into the more intense program for folks with "issues."

ps. Thanks for reading the email from Willis, the CrossFitting Marathoner. He is going to be one to watch as he brings CrossFit to LEOs in South Carolina.
