Nothing is ordinary about a day in the life of Kelly Starrett. Whether he’s helping fine-tune one of the world’s fittest men or running an outdoor-only CrossFit gym in San Francisco, Starrett is one interesting guy with an incredible depth of knowledge about human movement.
Starrett’s doctorate in physical therapy lends him credibility, but it’s his deep background in training that keeps people returning to his gym and attending his Mobility and Recovery Certifications. Starrett, a charismatic speaker and energetic motivator, is also a regular contributor to the CrossFit Journal, where he helps athletes and trainers alike prevent injuries and improve performance.
