Connor Stewart Martin, wrapped in bandages and lumbering toward you with arms outstretched, describes a Halloween-themed game for CrossFit Kids.

Former WADA head Dick Pound rejects claims sports have purged themselves of steroids and other performance-enhancing drugs.
The Director General of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) commended Major League Baseball in August for cracking down on doping in the wake of suspensions handed out to some of the sport’s best-known players.

“The only thing that I’m doing differently is adding CrossFit. That’s it,” he says. “I’m not only functional, I can do things that I… Continue Reading
Bettina Dolinsek was born blind, but she never asked to be treated differently. That same attitude carries over into her CrossFit training, and she doesn’t shy away from movements—even box jumps.
