The Words of Wisdom are from CrossFit Verve’s website, where an essay explains why CrossFitters should eat different forms of animal protein for breakfast every day.
4:05 Tami Martin is from Beaverton, Ore., and started CrossFitting about 18 months ago. The self-proclaimed couch potato described why she chose CrossFit after researching it for a long time, and she explained how her life has changed since she starting. Some time ago, Martin decided to enter her first CrossFit competition. She described her biggest takeaway from the competition and why it was such a growing experience for her. Martin also gave advice to other women who are on the journey to fitness.
32:08 2008 CrossFit Games Champion Jason Khalipa recently competed in the Team U.S.A. vs. Team Europe event in London, and he talked about why the competition was so exciting. He liked the team aspect so much that if he could have the same teammates for the CrossFit Games season, he said he would go team rather than individual. Khalipa is an extremely busy affiliate owner and member of the Level 1 Seminar Staff, and he spoke about balancing all his roles with training as an athlete. He described his current training and gave advice to other CrossFitters who want to compete at a high level. On the affiliate front, Khalipa talked about how his group of boxes is doing a fundraiser to raise money for people in Kenya.
