Jay: I loved playing sports when I was young but didn’t excel at any of them. I wish I had had CrossFit when I was younger because I’m sure I would have been better at all those sports. As an adult I got into bicycle racing and short track speedskating. As I worked to be more competitive in those endeavors I saw the benefits of strength and conditioning, but I didn’t really know the most effective way of going about it. CrossFit has taught me the things I wished I had known back then, and made me a better athlete today.
