A message from Austin:
As a coach it is my duty to guide each client to safely and effectively reach their full potential and help build confidence and better his/her daily lifestyle. CrossFit is more than a sport or a workout routine. It is more than running and rowing or lifting heavy weights or doing complex gymnastic movements. CrossFit is a community of people who measure life by what means the most – the capability to live healthy and active.
