We could not be more excited to introduce today's guest. Chris Spealler is a 7 time CrossFit Games Athlete who has brought more to the sport of fitness than most people realize.
He resides in Park City Utah with his family and spends of the day running his affiliate, CrossFit Park City. He is also on the CrossFit Level One Staff and travels the world teaching people about CrossFit, Coaching and moving better. His new venture is Icon Athlete. A website dedicated to helping competitive athletes get better at CrossFit.
We start by talking about the 2016 CrossFit Open and ask him about his decision to go or not go to Regionals. From there we talk about how is training has changed and the toll that competing at the games took on him. His new style of training involves less time, but it is not producing less results. He just PR'd his back squat at 400 lbs weighing in at just above 135lbs. What an amazing feat of strength.
Watching an athlete dedicate him self to becoming amazing coach is great to see. His sole focus when it comes to work is his affiliate and Icon athlete. If you are thinking of following a competition program you have to check it out.
As we wrap up we talk about the old days. Before Rogue Fitness and Reebok. You had to build your own rig and get to California if you want to go to a Level One Seminar. So much has changed and it is because of leaders and early adopters like Chris. Enjoy hearing his story and learning from a legend.
