I met Lisa Weatherby at CrossFit 1Force to talk to her about her amazing journey with CrossFit and how it’s changed her life. Lisa has Cerebral Palsy and in her words “It's basically brain damage, affecting the cerebellum, the part of the brain that controls balance and motor skills. I was born with it.
