The Sport of Fitness! In an earlier post, I gave several reasons why CrossFit should be considered a sport based on the definition of sport. While in high school, students can letter in everything from Football to Drama and a whole host of activities. Naturally, I thought it was reasonable to give students an opportunity to earn a Varsity Letter in CrossFit.

What's even more unbelievable is that these students have very limited exposure to some of the barbell movements that showed up in several of the workouts, because we don't have the space or equipment at Vision Charter. We drill these movements daily with sandbags, dumbbells, kettlebells, and pvc pipe. These movement patterns take time and the students did very well, but I long for the day when we have this equipment on campus so that they can reach their full genetic potential within their fitness journey.
Congrats to all the Vision CrossFit athletes that competed and thanks to our partners around the valley at Snake River CrossFit and CrossFit Fireside who were willing to help my athletes throughout this year continue to get better.
