Power Quotes From The Show
“Whether you're focusing on strength training, preparing for a 5k or just want to get back in shape, you have to trust in the process and those helping you with your goals. You need people that have already experienced what you're preparing for because they've seen the bigger picture and know how to help you.” – Dr. Jordan Shallow
“If you want to do something like lifting heavier weights; first start by learning about it. Just begin by learning something small about it today and then something else tomorrow. Then, try it out and maybe you'll be horrible at it, but then you'll be better at it the next day.” – Dr. Jordan Jiunta
“Take just half an hour out of your day to do something that's going to help you become stronger and live a longer life. In that sense, you're doing a selfish act for a very unselfish reason so that you can be there for your family and loved ones for many years to come.” – Dr. Jordan Jiunta
“The age, ability, reason, or lifestyle of each participant in a CrossFit class doesn't matter because it's not just about you. Rather, it's a collective group of people who are experiencing the same cycle of emotions in a class. That's what builds a community in the world of CrossFit.” – Dr. Jordan Shallow
