CrossFit Workshop: Flexibility

This immersive, one-day course covers multiple styles and strategies of flexibility training in both lecture and practical-application settings. Hands-on practice time and practical programming information will be provided for all techniques. Participants will be taught to use functional movements to guide their flexibility training and to develop strategies for improving specific movements.

  3. How to use foundational CrossFit movements to spot range-of-motion deficiencies.
