As a coach, lifelong athlete, and avid exerciser, I am a fan
of anything that motivates people to be healthier.
I have met, and respect
Richard Simmons because he convinced millions of unhealthy people to get off
their couches and “Sweat to the Oldies”.
Even with all of its many faults and
dangers, I would rather have sedentary or obese folks get addicted toCrossFit
than continue their addiction to television and fried food. So, a few years
