With summer CrossFit season in full swing, we take a look at the most inspiring stories in the industry:
If you didn’t see the video of St. Louis woman Tiffany Eickhoff dragging her first tire in a CrossFit workout despite her cerebral palsy, you missed a seriously inspirational video. She has received nothing but support and kind words since the video went viral this past month.
In 2011, Asheville, NC fire captain Jeff Bowen sadly passed away, but this past month, to commemorate the anniversary of his death, a local CrossFit gym honored Bowen with a challenging workout to help his family.
At CrossFit Trinium in Harrisburg, PA, parents are taking their kids, ages three to 18, for CrossFit Kids workouts to get them up and moving with some simple weightlifting, gymnastics, and cardio workouts.
Louisiana resident Dillon King realized a few years ago that an inordinate number of LGBTQ members in his New Orleans community were overweight, so he started CrossFit programs to help them get into better shape.
It seems like every month there’s a new story about another courageous person defying the odds to do amazing things in CrossFit. This month, it’s CrossFit trainer Logan Aldridge, who recently deadlifted 500 pounds despite having only one arm.
After a young girl in Idaho was tragically killed, Boise CrossFit raised $2,000 to help her family and other victims of the crime. Unfortunately, the money was stolen. Amazingly, the community responded by donating another $11,000. The family couldn’t believe the area’s kindness, but it’s a great illustration of how generous CrossFit communities can be.
