I have completed and attained certifications as a Level 1 CrossFit Instructor, as well as Mobility Training. CrossFit is a functional fitness program that is constantly varied, high intensity functional movement, interval training. It is the hottest trend in the fitness industry. Functional movements are exercises that target multi-joint muscle recruitment patterns. Improving your ability to perform these movements will train your body to be stronger, faster, and healthier. You will experience fewer injuries, and enjoy quicker recovery times and a better quality of life. It has been shown that the greater your lean body mass is (i.e. fitness level), all the standard markers for health (cholesterol and trigliceride levels, weight and vo2max) will improve.
In a nutshell, you really need to be able to perform these movements and not spend hours on the elliptical machine watching reruns of I Love Lucy. I know, that is a dig at the fitness industry in general and doing some kind of exercise is better than sitting on the couch watching TV but there is a better program out there and this is it. With proper training and a willingness on your part, I guarantee you will feel better than you ever imagined.

I feel strongly that along with fitness and strength training, mobility training is an essential piece of the health and wellness puzzle. I studied with Kelly Starrett, DPT San Fransisco Ca. His program incorporates a wealth of new ideas in regards to stretching, mobilization and prevention of overuse injuries. I have personally experienced improved flexibilty by employing his techniques and use them in my Chiropractic practice. I can honestly say that both CrossFit and the mobilty education has changed my life.
I am very excited about the direction I am headed in. There are very few Chiropractors who have put these pragrams together and none in the Rochester area.
