[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]Hey Folks!

Awesome, busy day in the gym!  That workout was awesome.  Apparently it’s a personal favourite of Eric’s.  The video below is pretty much the reason why I do CrossFit now.  I don’t care as much about making it to the CrossFit Games… I care about living well, and living well for a LONG time 🙂 Love seeing stuff like this![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/6″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_video link=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i6HAcLQp5z8″][vc_accordion][/vc_accordion][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/6″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]
