Irate and told me not to buy things….
What is this crazy podcast on about??? They said I don’t need to buy and how to save my body by properly scaling and not going full send 24/7.
Next they will suggest fitness isn’t a gateway to riches and fame and it can be enjoyable while being beneficial to general health…..
(Keep up the great work! Love this take and perspective of a more grounded podcast within the CrossFit realm. )
I like it
Great teamwork on the podcast. I really appreciate the insight and suggestions. I strayed from CrossFit because of injuries (my own fault), but this podcast makes me want to get back into it but intelligently this time. I thought every workout had to be 100% at 100MPH. The podcast has changed my perspective. Thanks a lot. Looking forward to the next episode.
High quality, incredible insight. Really stands out from all the CrossFit-related pods out there. But you don’t need to believe me, just listen once and you’ll figure it out. I’m just trying to help you enjoy at least one hour of your life. No whine, no Cheese.
