A Message from Jared:
Initially, I was all about that gym bro life. I never missed a Monday chest workout. I had some classmates that were CrossFit coaches and they gave me Kelly Starrett’s “Becoming a Supple Leopard” to read. I realized that I was missing out on many other aspects of fitness and wellness. I wanted to increase my mobility, have greater control over my movements, and be able to own the difficult positions seen in CrossFit. CrossFit Austin has given me a great community and environment to help me achieve these goals. I’m so grateful to have the opportunity to combine my physical therapy studies with CrossFit coaching in order to reconcile human physiology with how athletes move in the gym.
