Sebastian Rieder is a Level 1 staff member out of CrossFit Vienna. He shares how he found CrossFit and how CrossFit has changed his life. For him, one of the most profound changes CrossFit has brought is improved health.
“I haven’t been ill, like I’ve had no flu, no sickness, no nothing for, like, three and half years now since I changed my diet a bit,” he says. “It’s just the whole thing. I’m hooked.”
Rieder coaches the air squat at a Level 1 Seminar and points out how to correct squatting flaws.
