It’s quite amazing to be a part of Wisconsin sports at this time. The Brewers, for the first time since 1982, won the NL Central and won Game 1 against the Diamondbacks. The Green Bay Packers, 2011 NFL Champions, are 3-0 to start, and are looking to repeat. And the UW Badgers are off to a 5-0 start. I wonder if any of these teams did CrossFit this past year to train?!
One of the most often ignored parts of the famous “Fitness in 100 Words” by Greg Glassman is ‘play and learn new sports’. For most of us, CrossFit is our sport. For others, your sport is a lifelong love or profession – cycling, tennis, pick-up ball.
Badger CrossFit makes your GPP well-rounded so that you can participate and dominate the sport of your choosing. What is GPP?
GPP stands for General Physical Preparedness and refers to your level of fitness. CrossFit defines fitness as competence in all the general physical skills:
