Craig Howard has been an affiliate owner for over a decade. Diablo CrossFit in Pleasanton, California is one of the earliest affiliates.
Along with running a successful gym, Howard was also the 2013 CrossFit Games champ in the Masters Men (50-54) division. His passion for fitness and competition has clearly made an impact on the community.
Dr. Sean Rockett is back on the show. This time he is joined by his wife, Dr. Ronda Rockett, owner of CrossFit Launchpad.
CrossFit Launchpad is one of the first CrossFit Health affiliates. “My mission,” Ronda says, “is being able to attract and help people with diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol and take a look at their labs, instill a CrossFit lifestyle, which includes the nutrition, sleep, positive mindset, and of course, the fitness piece.”
As a former primary care physician, Ronda feels strongly that the CrossFit methodology can help prevent chronic disease.
A positive, supportive CrossFit community clears the path to recovery. Founder Scott Strode and Chris Diggett of The Phoenix are on the podcast to talk about how their free sober and active community is changing the lives of so many.
The Phoenix, with Per Ignem CrossFit, is a nonprofit organization that provides a safe space for individuals who have suffered from substance abuse.
