Week 4 of 10 Energy System Training COACHES COMMENT: THE ROLE OF A GOOD COACH Is your CrossFit coach a real coach, or are they just a motivator?  Contrary to popular opinion, the role of a good coach is not to recognise and reward aptitude, any amature can hand out “carrots” for good execution.  A good coach is there to help uncover...

Why the AirFit Bikes are so “GOOD?”

Josh Schouten | 25-11-2015
