I think we already knew it but it’s good to have the proof. A scientific study by a local professor proves that just looking at certain types of female bodies can scramble a man’s brains. Turns out that Professor Platek is a CrossFit guy, and he also thinks the non-surgical way for women to achieve the ideal shape is to do CrossFit! He’s even been on TV about it, and he insisted on being interviewed at Kyle Maynard’s gym, No Excuses CrossFit.
We are still celebrating the performances of our top athletes (gold and silver in both men and women). We remain amazed and dazed that one gym could produce so many elite performers, but the real mission of CrossFit Atlanta is to help everyone achieve their potential, which is almost always more than they think. To paraphrase CrossFit’s founder, Greg Glassman, we believe that the needs of elite athletes differ from the needs of ordinary people in degree, not in kind. The results experienced by our competitive athletes merely mirror what every member of the gym is experiencing: daily improvements that really add up over time.
