    Adaptive Athletes

    The Crossfit Games added three new divisions for Adaptive Athletes, upper extremity, lower extremity, and neuro-muscular. Absolutely amazing to watch these folks compete.

    If it pays, it stays

    HRH's client is a young woman who had a series of CVAs in her early twenties. She has residual nystagmus, impaired balance, palsy, hand weakness and tremor, and motor control issues with her legs.

    She's very active in adaptive cycling and does rock wall climbing. She's beginning to work with a trainer who is, himself, a cross-fitter who's also an amputee (leg).

    It's pretty awe-inspiring.
